1 Day juice fast
Despite the awesome 4 lbs after 1 day on the plan... it's been a very difficult day. It was Timbits, those evil little nuggets of doughnut pleasure. I brought a box of them into the house this morning to host a friend and give to the kids. They lingered around the house all day, when I came downstairs after putting Wesley for a nap they greeted me on the dining room table, the sugar was glistening on their surface. I chugged some water, it was all I could do to stave off the craving.
When I look at foods like Timbits, burgers, or perogi, this rationalization goes through my head
“Well if I eat just a bit today it won't be so bad”
“yes but you know once you start it won't be just a little bit, you'll throw up your hands and make a day of it” my counter-voice pitches in
“If I eat doughnuts today and have a great old time eating junk food, I'll just start my plan tomorrow”
“You already said that three day's ago, today is the day. Look your already into it 1 day, have posted pictures on Instagram and told the world your going to do this, besides, your going to visit your family in 3 weeks and wanted to have made progress by then if you keep pushing it back you'll have nothing to show for it.”
And that's how I talked myself through it, yay counter-voice your a winner... this time.
When I looked up to scan the room, I noticed in the last 20 minutes my 1 year old has trashed the dining room, this is the part where I throw up my hands and consume consolation treats. But not today! It's what, 5 minutes of work to put it back together, get a grip Meghan don't be so dramatic.
I'm making burgers for the girls supper this evening and consuming a lovely garden variety green juice myself... wish me luck!
