Can I just say that I am so glad this cleanse is almost over? Because I am. My philosophy from the beginning of this lifestyle change has been to not make certain foods off limits. As soon as you say you can't eat cheeseburgers anymore the more you want one, until a cheeseburger is all you can think about and the golden arches mock you every time you drive by. At least that's how it is for me.
So...when you declare all things off limits for five days except what is on your cleanse menu, the thought of what foods you can't eat consumes you. Which is even a bigger struggle for food addicts. Right now, all I can think about is sushi. I want a spicy tuna roll so bad! Hopefully we can find a decent sushi place around here once I'm done with this cleanse.
Other than that, things have been going well. And even though it's been difficult, the cleanse was just what I needed to give my weight loss a little jump start after being gone for three weeks. I am down three pounds as of this morning! :)
In case you were wondering, I got a pretty good report from the hand specialist today. No pins, no surgery. I did get a much better splint...hallelujah! That other thing was just to big for a clumsy person like me. I totally felt like Buster from Arrested Development with his hook! Ha ha! I have to wear a splint for three weeks. Then if I don't have full use of my finger after six weeks I have to go back and most likely begin physical therapy.
And finally...college football starts tomorrow! Whoop! Technically it began on Thursday but the DAWGS play on Saturday evening. So excited! Hoping for a good year. Either way...GO DAWGS!
Peace, Love, and Healthy Living,
