Day 9 of the 60 day thyroid reboot

Tuesday, March 22, 2016

This is the second full day of juicing on the program. I had all my juices ready yesterday so that I didn't have to fuss today. I had my lemon juice with water and then my first juice of the day before going out for tea with my daughter. We had a great visit. By the time I was leaving for home I was quite hungry so I went home for another juice. I was hungry by the time I went back out to the grocery to get more fruit and veges for my juicing tomorrow. I got out of there by the skin of my teeth. All I could think about was eating. I want some sauteed veges and a piece of chicken!!
A stream of old thoughts began trekking through my mind. 'Well, I could just get a small box of Timbits and then start again tomorrow.' 'A small bag of chips wouldn't hurt.' 'When I go to the Bulk Barn to get my Brazil nuts I could get just a few chocolate covered peanuts.' 'What would be the problem if I just ate one small thing.' It is like having a virus crawl through your brain destroying any reason that may be trying to assert itself.
Over and over again this process pushes itself into the forefront when I find myself in a bit of difficulty. I am absolutely sick of it. I need to find a way to another thought pathway. As I am writing this I realize that it is not just thought. It is a pattern of behaviour. It is a feeling that accompanies these thoughts, that blankets all thought and steers it in one direction.
I don't want to fail. I need to recover my health and that includes losing weight. I need to be accountable for my choices, not give in and feel guilty for doing so. I need to walk the talk.
So what do I do for the rest of the day? I drink my water, my coconut juice and my also juice. After dinner? A warm cup of broth and top it off with an herbal tea. And hope that tomorrow won't be so difficult.

    Living on a liquid diet is tough. Personally I can't go to the store unless I eat something good for me ahead of time or I would go crazy in the store. Good luck with what you are doing. Hope it all goes the way you want it to.b
