It's been a While

Wednesday, March 06, 2013

Last time that I was here, I was going through some rough times. I put my weight on the back burner while I dealt with some other issues, but now that I'm through those times, I'm ready to start again.

To kick off things this time, I have started a juice fast. It isn't a true fast, since I will be having a snack at the end of every day. I'm tying to hit my goal of 21 days, but even two days is considered a win for me. I want to retrain my palate against the processed foods and sugars that I've taken comfort in while stressed.

Today was my second day. Although not every juice that I have made has been good (too many collard greens are overpowering), I find myself surprised by what I like. Carrot and red apple juice is a classic, but I also like parsnip, radish, and orange. My sense of smell is also coming back in stride. When I opened my fridge this morning, the first thing that I smelled was the kiwi on my top shelf.

The caffeine headaches leave a lot to be desired, but they are a lot better than yesterday. If I hadn't forced my body to think that it was going to get four or five cups of coffee everyday, it wouldn't be begging for it now. I'm hoping to document as much as I can during this process, as it is difficult to do this on my own.

Yesterday, my boyfriend asked me to bring some cookies home from work, and I couldn't help but stare at him as he ate them. That was hard. This is going to be a long two and a half weeks.
