Things have been going OK since my cyber breakdown. Thanks for the words of encouragement everyone! I have moments where I feel so confident that I can do this (and eat like this the rest of my life) and then I have moments when I think "What am I doing to myself?". I think the emotional and spiritual toll of this new lifestyle is almost harder to bear than the physical. But I am doing better!
I am pretty proud of my self - I haven't had one thing I am not supposed to have. I almost hate to type that because I feel like I might end up jinxing myself. It isn't easy. Last night Mark brought home pizza for everyone else and it smelled heavenly. Talk about manna from heaven! (Well, except its bad for you. And God didn't make it. The guy at Dominos did. But whatever.) While they dined on Dominos, I grilled some organic turkey breasts, and ate that with organic, unsweetened applesauce, and fried potatoes. The fried potatoes tasted the best because my mom made them for me! (Using safflower oil, an approved oil.) We all know food we didn't prepare generally tastes better than the food we expend our own energy preparing!
Tomorrow I start the special B12 shots. That's going to be interesting. But I figure, if I can give a sheep a shot for 4-H, how hard can it be to give myself one? Right? (Someone back me up here...)
So that is the quick detox update. I know this diet is just the first step I am going to have to take on the path to wellness, but I'm still chugging along.
