IT’S DAY 26
of the juice fast, that is. and wow, can i just point out how chatty I am today? i guess since i haven’t blogged in a few days i feel like i have all these things backed up that i want to share.
anyway, back to the juice. i know, i know. enough with the juice fast already! but it’s sort of enthralling to me. i have felt so good on this fast, but don’t let me fool you, people: i’ve had a few little mess ups. first there was valentines day. and how do you go out for valentines day to the yummiest mexican food in town without eating? i know there are people out there with self-control from the gods, but i’m not one esp when you are dangling mexican food in my face. never dangle mexican food in my face. you never know what might happen. SO, i decided i would go ahead and take a few little bites of the husby and kids food, which turned into getting my own plate of food, which turned into adding a margarita to that, which turned into me telling myself “I will only eat half and take the other half home”, which turned into me looking down after good convo with the hubs to see that my plate only needed to be licked in order for it to look as though it never had any food on it in the first place. PHEW, and there ya have it, people! one looong run on sentence to highlight my indiscretion.
so that really did me in for about a week and a half. i regretted every bit of that cheesy, corn goodness and swore i wouldn’t do it again. until……..i made capellini and sauce with meatballs for dinner. AND we had a lot of parmesan. now i am the type that must coat each strand in parm. it’s an art and a lifestyle- don’t dis (like the husband who says i eat like a 3 year old. i can’t completely deny this as my ketchup habits are much like my parm cheese habits). so where am i going with this? yeah, you know where…..i ate the capellini. i ate it and i LIKED IT. until……i had another week of yuck. THEN, a well meaning friend of mine suggested i add in more protein. this made sense to me. i went and bought cheese and salami snack pack to eat as well as a naked juice that was high in protein. i gobbled and drank like there was no tomorrow. not really, but i had a fair sized amount. the next day? DOWN FOR THE COUNT. i mean, DID NOT GET OFF THE COUCH, which, if you know me you know i cant stand those types of days (which is a whole other issue). so now we are here today and i am solidly on the juice fast (really, 95% of the time i have been) and feeling better from all my self-induced trama. i have been toying with the idea of doing a half juice half eating diet that would include ONLY the things i put in the juice (mostly veggies). we will see. i feel good right now and i am afraid to mess with anything.
that was way way WAY too much info about my juice fast. waytoomuch. my apologies.
let me leave you with this horrible outfit photo for today. why do i even post these? what a slacker. one day i am going to get good at these….but i love this knit, light sweater i am wearing. from jcrew. so comfy, so easy. perfect for a stay at home momma. the skinny jeans are GAP from a few years back and the shoes are blowfish.
gotta go juice! out!
