I went shopping this morning and filled my cart with fruits and veggies and lots of other things I used to not buy. Like: rice flour, flax meal, almond meal, egg substitute, coconut water, tofu. As I looked at my cart I thought "Yuck, I have become one of those people!" As the cashier checked me out, I found myself hoping she would notice that I am one of "those" people!
The last time I ate meat was on December 31. I did my 30 day juice fast and have been eating mostly fruits, veggies, and grains since then. With the exception of yesterday and today. Yesterday I had a minor cheese attack. I have always loved cheese and i said one piece and ended up with four okay maybe 6 pieces.
Hubby Has decided to juice the next two weekends. I did it with him last weekend and came off it, but I don't like that because I find the first 3 days to be the hardest, so I decided that I am going to go back on the juice fast through both of his weekends. Starting tomorrow I will do a 10 day fast.
Any way, knowing I was going to start fasting tomorrow. I decided to have a treat this morning. I had said that I would have meat every once in a while and this morning I decided it was my every once in awhile. I got my biscuit and excitedly took that first bite. My face went from a big smile to a grimace as I chewed and chewed. I thought to myself, I love sausage. Let me try this again. Second bite, I grimaced as I chewed. I didn't take a third bite. I threw it away. Feeling sick to my stomache the whole way home from town.
All I could think is "yuck, I am one of those people that don't eat meat! What if I never enjoy a big juicy burger again?" "I am one of those people I used to think was weird. " My grimace slowly turned to a smile as i thought , It's not so bad being weird. "What will it take to want to spit out cheese?"
