Day 6

I think this is all starting to get much easier for me. I planned my day and my meals out in advance. Had cooked chicken and brown rice for dinner the night before, so packed away a plate to bring to work for my lunch. Mixed up a salad in the morning with red wine vinegar on it for dressing (no fats) and also made up some finadene sauce for my rice. Finadene sauce is the only thing that makes me like rice. It consists of soy sauce, lemon juice, chopped onions and chopped hot red peppers. We grow the "boonie" peppers to use for this, but I couldn't find our plant so I added a few dashes of Louisiana hot sauce to the mix. Put it all in a jar and use on rice as a condiment. Yum.

My friend stopped by in the afternoon with some treats from a local coffee shop. She shared an oatmeal craisin cookie with me. It just happened to be my snack time (2pm). I also had 1/4 of her birthday cupcake. As I ate it I told her about "joy" foods. Chanci shared on a recorded conference call about "fuel" food, "joy" food, and "storm" food. There was one other category but I forget what it was. Joy food is food you just love and you want to eat it and savor it. If it no longer gives you joy when eating then stop! This is a concept I can really grasp hold of.

I drank plenty of water because it was such a hot day. Unfortunately I didn't get to drink my evening shake until 9pm when I got home from work. Kids had made spaghetti for dinner and the smell was so enticing! But I resisted even taking a nibble of spaghetti, made my shake and retired to my bedroom to get me out of the kitchen and away from temptation.

The only thing I didn't do yesterday was exercise. I did do a bit of walking, just in paying some bills and doing banking. Parking far from the entrance to the bank. Thankfully the next four days of exercise will be easier with my water aerobics class every morning.

Day 3 without coffee. It is getting easier.

Tomorrow will be my first cleanse day. Should be interesting. I have a lot of work to do at the office so hopefully that will keep me distracted from wanting to eat real food.
