Yes, I thought, just what I need to discipline myself! I knew my hardest hurdle was not drinking my usual half a pot of coffee. However, a lot of people reported feeling energized so I was hopeful that I would too.
Here's a quick recap of how my day went down:
Made and sat down to eat my Quinoa with prunes. Discovered that I REALLY can not stomach prunes. Ate a few and then tried to eat around them. Left about half the bowl since the Quinoa was covered in prune juice.
Starving and tired but tried to ignore it.
Decide it's time to make the Detox drink. Off I go, chopping and pouring everything into my blender. Secretly hoping that this drink will work a miracle and give me energy since my eyes are now tearing from being so tired.
After many interruptions by my kiddos, and fighting with my blender, I finally have my green drink ready to go. After 1 sip, I'm not too sure if I like the leafy texture. After the second sip, I am sure that I can't handle the leafy texture. All my hard work goes down the drain, literally.
I am already thinking about lunch: a banana/blueberry smoothie. Problem is: we are out of bananas! Instead of risking not having any food until dinner, I decide to make vegetable soup. Both my girls want to share and, since this is the first time Abby actually WANTS to eat vegetables, I
begrudgingly share (and continue to be hungry and in desperate need for caffeine).
12 to 1 pm
Lunch time for my girls, followed by nap time. I beg Abby to please nap since I am too tired to keep my eyes open.
I wake up from my nap and, before I can even open my eyes, I stuff my face full of Oreos. By the time I realize what I'm doing, I've eaten about 8. Instead of stopping there, I eat a few more since I didn't really enjoy the first few considering I was barely awake.
I then decide to restart my day, make coffee, and abandon all ideas of Detoxing.
