I made a mistake. I mentioned to my mother on the phone, “I am tired all the time but I can’t sleep.” Ten thousand questions followed (actually only 3) and I realized I have to clean out my tummy system. I hate the phone.
“Are you eating late before you go to bed? Are you under a lot of stress? You must look at your diet. I hope you are staying away from those GMOs. Are you drinking a lot of wine?”
I had to wait, of course. I had a championship party in my own kitchen, a wine tasting to attend during a girlfriends weekend away, and I was just not ready. I had to be totally sick and exhausted and disgusted with myself to start.
First of all, I didn’t really know where I wanted to start. Second, I’m not starting a fast! Third, I know I can’t eat sugar or dairy, that’s a given but it makes me moody thinking about dry coffee.
Should I give up meat? Meat for me means chicken. I don’t eat cows just because I like cows. I don’t eat pigs either just because of the way I was raised. Plus I needed to look into this whole gluten-free thing, which I didn’t even do.
Start: kale, carrot and ginger juice / coffee & almond milk / a banana/ almonds
Observation: I snack a lot
Midday: Chipotle salad with black beans, extra guacamole, chicken, salsa / raw nuts w/ raisins.
Observation: Chicken even grass-fed feels like cheating. Must remember I’m not on a diet.
Late Dinner: Kale salad and avocado, salmon, brown rice cake (ate one just because I looked at the package to see if it was gluten-free and it was! Tasty too.
Dessert: I decided to write on this Blog to get my mind off of things and I sipped some wine.
It was red!
AA would be considered a diet. I’m not on a diet.
