I am not an addict but the events in my life, lately, have given me cause to recite the Serenity Prayer over and over in my head.
Just when I think things can't get any worse....life comes along to show me , YES, it can!
Today, I'm looking for wisdom!
Have a great day,
For the last three days I have eaten nothing but vegetables and fruit and water (okay, diet soda, too but that's it!) For the first two days, I would have slapped someone for a carb...yesterday I was standing in my co-worker's office and I felt for a moment that I might just pass out. I think that I could actually eat more during the day than the nectarine that I ate between the time I woke up and 5pm (that might have had something to do with the dizziness) but the raw vegetables that were packed in my bag just seemed unappealing to me!
The great thing about this part of the diet though is the availability of fresh fruits and vegetables. I love stopping at the produce stands on the way home from work and buying fresh picked vegetables and fruits for dinner. There's a very large open air market on my way home that is fast becoming my favorite place to shop! They offer samples of their melons, pineapple, cherries, blueberries, and strawberries . They offer local organic produce and carry just about every fruit and vegetable you can think of and some you've never seen or heard of. If you don't feel like cooking dinner, there's a guy outside on the BBQ. They even have a table of $1.00 items that are ready to eat....I bought a giant bag of tiny asparagus that were just ripe...I roasted them and OMG were they delicious!!
So....Day 4 of my 9 day Detox diet begins. Maybe my book will arrive today and I will know what is in store for me. I know that we are all losing weight (water weight) and feeling light as a feather..haha! I'm off to ship out some paintings that sold (thank you!) and plan for a family reunion.
Have a great day!,
