Today I worked an eight hour shift, and had almost no time to prepare the kinds of meals I should be eating when coming off a cleanse, so I had to wing it.
For breakfast, I had some leftover quinoa and a cup of tea, and dashed out the door. For lunch, I went to Sprouts and ordered a veggie wrap.
But dinner time was the real problem, because I was back at home and didn’t have anything cleanse-friendly left in the larder. I had eaten all of the healthier stuff and didn’t have time to shop.
So, I reluctantly had a hamburger. And, honestly, it didn’t even taste as good as I expected. (It wasn’t the one pictured above–I swiped that from Pinterest. Click the pic to see where it’s from.) And, I figured since I was blowing it, I might as well have a Boddington’s with it.
Triumphs: I lost five pounds over the course of the cleanse. I was able to wear one of my favorite shirts today, one that was a little too tight last week. I feel great and my energy levels are high.
Challenges: I don’t want to fall back into my old eating habits. Eating a burger for dinner wasn’t what I wanted to do, but I simply didn’t have the time to go shopping again for post-cleanse foods.
Intentions: I intend that, today, I make a point of stocking the kitchen with more healthy foods.
Current Conditions: I’m almost reluctant to go off the cleanse. It was easier to have a set of strict guidelines of what I could eat.
Daily Thanksgiving: I’m thankful for the Detoxinista website. She has some INCREDIBLE recipes.
