Day 3 started with a new resolution. I felt good!! I skipped the salt water flush. It is just nasty. I went grocery shopping for more lemons and the ingredients to break my fast whenever I choose to do so. I tortured myself and browsed through the premade and frozen foods section of Trader Joes. I read the packages of cookies. I was okay.
Today, my legs are wobbly and I don't feel like I have much energy. I'm so glad I haven't suffered from any headaches while on the cleanse. It would have been tough to handle at this time.
Again I made breakfast for B and baked a loaf of bread for him during the week. I tried a new recipe and I was dying to taste it. Who wouldn't love fresh warm bread???? I refrained and sliced it up and didn't even eat the chunk that fell off the loaf. I threw that out.
B had a veggie Subway sandwich and again the smells nearly did me in. Throughout the weekend, there were many times I was on my way to the kitchen to help myself to a slice of cheese or a few grapes. I always caught myself, but I realize how often I really do graze. I don't consider myself a huge snacker, but I guess I still do snack nonetheless.
Today my mood was a little short. My patience was running a little thin and I felt it. I was hungry, but I expected to be much hungrier than I was for someone who had not eating for three days.
I realized how much energy I go through with food. I do cook and plan all (most) of my meals. I did not have to do that for this week. I have so much more time! Too bad, I don't have the energy or the drive to do anything else other than sit on the couch and try not to think about pasta.
