DSD – Day 1 & 2
Well…yesterday wasn’t as hard as I thought it would be. I didn’t cheat (which is HUGE) at all but I am exhausted and I did go to bed at 9:45 last night. I started to feel the onset of a horrible headache and as the day drew to an end I could tell my patience was waining.
Yesterday I made Buffalo Chicken Muffins for breakfast and they weren’t bad. Seriously. I was so glad when I bit into it and it wasn’t revolting. It encouraged me. I ate 1/2 of an avocado with my 2 muffins. For lunch, I packed 5 slices of ham and 10 carrot sticks (I took the kids to a splash pad to play with a few little friends and to get out the house) however Owen decided he didn’t want his peanut butter sandwich but instead wanted my ham (so being the wonderfully sacrificial mom that I am) I gave him 4 slices of my ham and I enjoyed 6 carrot sticks (the other 4 were taken by my loving daughter). So when we got home (at 1:50) I had some sunflower seeds and 20 ounces of water. I significantly increased the amount of water I drink on a daily basis months ago but I’m finding myself increasing it a bit more this week, which I think is good for me. For dinner I made Mexi-Meatloaf. It again, surprisingly, wasn’t horrible. I made black beans and avocado to enjoy with our meatloaf. The kids were begging for ice cream but a firm no and a promise to go to the park persuaded them to choose the park over ice cream. I’m not sure I could’ve dished that out then.
I’m writing this in the early hours of day 2 because I’ve left the house to work and have a lunch with friends. I successfully just ate my first meal “out” and did pretty good, if I have to say so. I had the Anaheim Scrambler at Corner Bakery. I ordered the scrambled egg dish withOUT cheese and didn’t give in and eat the toast that came with it. That (if you know me at all) is HUGE. I’m enjoying a cup (or 4) of water instead of my traditional Dr. Pepper. My headache is now a dull pain in the front of my brain and I feel like I’m in a bit of a fog but I’m not sure if that’s due to the lack of caffeine, sugar or a combo of both but that’s what I’m supposed to feel right?!? I keep reminding myself that I’m in “detox” and I can only imagine what it would actually feel like to truly detox from an addictive substance.
Again, if you’re reading this and care about me AT ALL…please pray!
