Detox Day OneWow, today was hard, rewarding but hard. I wasn't expecting to feel hungry as much as I did today. I had to remind myself about how our bodies are persistent and will make you think your hungry when it's really not just because it's craving something it is addicted to. I remember that from doing the Atkins and trying to get through the first two weeks, breaking the carb addiction.
I started off this morning excited and confident. I got to work and made it until 8:30 before stating the prescribed schedule. That is when I realized that I forgot my herbal tea and home...and my wallet. Thank goodness I live about 2 miles from work so I ran home and got my wallet, and since I really only had 2 tea bags left I decided to stop and pick up new teas. I got herbal Truely Blueberry and Honey, Vanilla, chamomile, and a peach green tea. Well I started with the blueberry which was just awful, but I wasn't using stevia or lemon. Later in the afternoon when I tried the chamomile one, i decided that the blueberry wasn't so bad LOL! I am so used to putting all that sugar in there to make it taste better. I also picked up a Green Tea which I figured I didn't want to use too much but for those caffeine headaches it would come in handy. So I had that at 2:30 and it helped out and by now I was getting used to drinking (rather chugging) these non-sugared teas.
The Green Drink....WOW, I am impressed, it tastes very good. It smells like bubble gum and has a sweet taste to it as well. I even had my boss smell it to make sure I wasn't loosing it. Two thumbs up MVD! I didn't do the veggie splash, kinds lost as to where in the program that is suppose to fit in. I sent an email to Dr. Roni's website to ask, also to point out the error on the times in the schedule (two 2:30's and no 4:30 slot)
I got Mangosteen from Hi Health as the High Density Antioxidant berry drink. You use 1oz two times a day. I found out something very important today, do not dilute this stuff...it doesn't taste very good diluted, just do it as a shot, trust me, unless you have a set of triplets the help cheer you on with a chug chug chug chant. (thank you girls!) I also found out that distilled water doesn't have a great flavor either. :P
OK well so I did pretty good, I learned a lot and survived ... OH wait DINNER:
I made one of the soups. I made the Curried Vegetables. It turned out well! I was again, surprised. It tasted like a fluffy orange squash, only it was pea green. I was relived to finally have something that I felt would give me a full feeling, and it did. I am embarrassed to admit that I didn't know what mixed greens where to which my hubby informed me was collard green and I didn't think that I could...I have had them before and I did not like them at all so I substituted fresh spinach. Tomorrow I am planning on making Ginger Carrots. I'm excited, I think that will taste real yummy!
So, this evening I am feeling a bit worn out. I was a good detoxer and took my mile walk and even did a few extra stretches. Mentally I was feeling a little down cause I am feeling so tired, but then I saw all your wonderful comments on my blog and it really cheered me up! Thank you for taking this journey with me. I am so grateful to have company, plus, have I mentioned yet how wonderfully supportive my husband has been? He did my soup shopping for me this afternoon and he went for my walk with me...actually, he helped motivate me to go on the walk. Thank you hunny!
Uh....... SO far, normal bm's and no cramping. I was feeling a little nauseous as I sat down to blog, but that seems to have passed, and I do have a slight headache, started after my walk....maybe just need more water.
DAY ONE DOWN! 20 TO GO!
