Thank-detox

So it’s day 4 of my 10 day detox…

Day 1- easy, peasy.  The hardest part was that I worked a 12-hour night shift and did not bring enough snacks.  I left work super hungry and that is just not cool.  Luckily it was pretty busy, so I didn’t really get a chance to think about it until I got in my car on the way home.  But I went to bed hungry because my normal go-to pre-bed snack would be Greek yogurt and granola- both of which I cannot have 😦 So I sacked out instead—>

Day 2- starving!  I woke up at 3pm and had a water with some metamucil and then had my smoothie.  A cup full of pistachios as a snack a little bit later.  Then I decided to go run at the gym and take the boys swimming.  By the time I got home, I was ravenous.  You may have seen me begging for food like this—>

I made a super yummy salad.  See recipe here.  BUT THEN IT HIT ME- I couldn’t have any wine 😦  This was tough.  I really wanted to unwind with Ryan and watch some TV and just relax.  Instead I pouted a bit, watched TV and went to bed early.

Day 3- not too hard.  The food part is easy for me.  It really isn’t that much of a variance from our normal, minus having a nice piece of bread with our salads at dinner.  Breakfast was a smoothie.  Morning snack of eggs and nuts.  Lunch was tuna salad, lettuce wraps and grapefruit. YUM—>Afternoon snack was nuts and an apple.  Then I went to spinclass and was ravenous again…so I decided to have a smoothie at the gym cafe to help make it to dinner- very helpful!  A sushi dinner was made and all was good with the world again- except I really missed that yummy sake that we would normally have along side it.   Oh well, water and more water and another early night to bed.  Two days in a row of being to bed before 11pm- unheard of at the Hall house.

Last night I was kind of feeling like “ridiculously dull Bobby” not “fun bobby”- ha!  Do you remember that Friend’s episode?

Day 4 is here and it should go by without a hitch.  I have to work again tonight- this time I am bringing an arsenal of snacks with me 🙂

Are any of you doing this with me?  How’s it going so far?

This was the highlight of my week —> Two of Rowan’s spelling words last week were “fan” and “mom”.  He has to use them in a sentence and then circle the word.  🙂  “Im a Packers fan. I Love Mom.”  Makes a Mama proud.
