Day 3, the hurdle

It's been a very long, tiring day. I guess the lack of calories is asking my body to go to bed and get rest so it can get to work on cleaning me out. I'm starting to feel the benefits though, as the bloating has gone away and some temptations are no longer bothering me. Since I honestly need to get to bed, I will just recap my meals with a few afterthoughts.

Breakfast: green smoothie (more like purple though)

  • spring mix
  • banana
  • frozen blueberries

Snack: apple


  • tangerine
  • carrot
  • zucchini
  • celery
  • green onion
  • kohlrabi

Snack: cherries

Dinner: collard green wraps (2) stuffed with things I threw in the food processor:

  • cauliflower
  • peppers
  • carrot
  • ginger
  • garlic
  • chopped asparagus

If it weren't for mental exhaustion, I'm sure I would be more energetic right now. My mom and stepdad also came for a visit today. They brought veggies from the farmers' market in Immokolee, and lots of them—thank you! Of course the dinner discussions involved a bit of arguing and teasing about what I'm doing, but I did not cheat except for a trivial amount of oil and spices in Brent's homemade salsa. You must be thinking "what about the chips?" I actually used thinly sliced zucchini left over from lunch, and it was a great alternative. I will be doing that more often, that's for sure. I get my chips & salsa kick without chips :)

We also discussed a possible business I would be helping them with that follows my beliefs and design skills so I'm pretty excited about that as well. Funny how this fits in with my career horoscope I mentioned before. I hope to be making an announcement here about this business once we put things in motion. But, I'm also getting overwhelmed with everything I want to do. I need to take it moment by moment—it will all come together with time. Let's enjoy what we have now. Yoga should help my mind in the morning.
