Day Two

So I woke up and juiced a morning fruity drink, packed up a veggie drink and set off for the day. Seemed like it would be enough... WRONG. I got hungry around 2pm and was stuck at work until 5. I didn't give in though. I walked to and from meetings, past the pizza place, past the sandwich place, past the vending machines... or course... whilst sipping down water. The water might not be filling, but it's been essential in dealing with cravings.

I had a dental visit mid-day. Just out of curiosity I had them take my blood pressure. I was pretty astonished to see how high it was: 169/92. They asked me if I normally had high blood pressure. I don't. I really don't. usually it's so low that the docs are hesitant to let me take beta-blockers (performance anxiety meds). I dont' know what this is all about, but me thinks I need to start integrating physical activity and soon! Though It  think it would be smarter to wait until I get that energy boost people have been talking about.

Today has been a full day of thinking about food though... I thought I had better control of myself. Cravings happen in waves... knowing I can grab a slice of bread and not have to tell you about it. But ultimately, the other side of my brain hops in and says, "Why, Why do you want to eat? Why do you need that?" Then come hunger waves in addition to craving waves...   and I retaliate, "well, why? I'll tell you why, because you're starving yourself."

Now... let's be objective. Today I have consumed:

  • 2 tomatoes 
  • half a thing of celery
  • a cucumber
  • a lime
  • 3 carrots
  • 3 nectarines
  • 2 apples
  • a pear
  • spinach
  • kale
  • ginger
  • garlic
  • cilantro
  • parsley
  • strawberries
  • blueberries
  • banana

and I haven't even had my last juice yet! I don't think I could eat that much over the course of the day and still feel the need for more. You're not starving, Nanette. You're in the habit of stuffing your face every time you even THINK of food. Stop it. You can do better. There are new dresses to be worn, fancy shoes to buy, airplane seats to be filled, new ways of thinking, and the promise of new found energy waiting for you. A little cheat... who'd know? YOU WOULD. It might not send you flying off the reboot wagon, but it's surrendering to the inability to control yourself.

To being the master of our domains!
I'll Juice To That,
