So it's 6 days in....that means I've almost completed my first week! You know what? I feel great! Like seriously great. I have more energy, my digestion is fantastic and I just overall feel a ton better and happier. Here are the things that I just don't miss:
Candy during the day
Donuts in the morning
Feeling stuffed at lunch
Feeling stuffed at dinner
Feeling guilty, feeling guilty, feeling guilty
Here is what I DO miss:
Warm meals. Eating only raw is probably the toughest part. I'm cool with the morning smoothie but sometimes I make a salad at dinner and just want to throw it across the room.
Dessert. I don't miss the sweets during the day, but I do miss having a little dessert after dinner. I don't think about it much, but it does sound delicious.
That's it! That's all I miss. A warm meal and dessert. Here's the thing though, I don't crave dessert. It just sounds fun. Popping up some popcorn, having some frozen yogurt. But I don't sit around thinking about it constantly. Food was all that was on my mind before. Now I almost have to remind myself to eat. How do I know when to eat? By listening to my body. Not because it is lunch time, etc. I eat my stuff when I'm hungry. That is a pleasant change.
Here's to almost one week down and one more week to go. I may do this for an entire month, but if I do I have to introduce something warm at night, even if it's just a veggie soup. Again, the warm meal is the hardest part.
I know I haven't talked about weight at all. How that is going. I did weigh myself and take measurements at the beginning and will weigh myself Sunday and when it's over. I'm a firm believer that you can't weigh more than once a week or you will go crazy. So, check back in on Sunday if you want to know how it is affecting my weight.
