What am I feeling:
I have to say I am surprised at how well I feel. I have not felt nauseous or extremely tired, 'course I feel tired most of the time any ways!
I really thought the cleanse pills would. *ahem* cleanse me and that I might be rushing to the bathroom to save myself from embarrassment. But the only embarrassment I have had is taking my coat off at a meeting yesterday and having a woman run me down because my dress was stuck in my pantyhose. Nice.... THAT is from having to pee every 30 minutes.
I do want more food although I can't say I am craving anything. Sweet Potatoes have been a life saver!!! And tonight I had rice after my dinner because I was still wanting something of substance in my stomach. I made chicken for the family and I DESERVE the medal for self- control. Do you know how easy it is to pick up a little piece of chicken you are cutting up for your child? I held strong though and have not cheated!
I learned some disturbing news tonight. My grandmother is hosting a birthday celebration for my uncle and me THIS Sunday! Okay, that isn't disturbing but does put a kink in my plan. I thought it was next Sunday which would have put me past my 10 days so I could eat chicken. She was calling to find out what type of meat I want and sides and dessert!!! I told her I would call her back later because I had some thinking to do. My grandmother finds so much joy in cooking and feeding her family. She is a true southern type woman. I cherish every moment I have with her and you never know if this could be the last one. So I have made a decision. I will be going off of the program for Sunday lunch. I can hear some of you scoffing and saying, "Sure, make a sacrifice." I truly don't want to and here is what I requested. Chicken breast, broccoli/ cauliflower, toss salad and veggie tray. And for dessert, strawberry shortcake. I am going to make a huge salad, have some broccoli/ cauliflower and add a few strips of chicken to the top. Then for Sunday night, right back on the wagon. I am not going to beat myself up over this. Just life. I am not going to use it as an excuse to gorge myself on bad foods but as a learning experience for after the program is done. And I am going to enjoy the time with my family.
