Day 1 (morning thoughts)

Today I shall eat nothing but fruit.  Today I am a fruitarian.  Today, my gums are killing me because apparently I have some sores there that I wasn’t aware of until the citric acid hit them.  (I never knew there was so much acid in cantaloupe!)  Today, I walked into work with a bag full of cantaloupe, oranges, grapefruit, apples, strawberries, pineapple, and a pear.

Today I did not drink coffee of any kind.  Today I am drinking water with a little bit of sugar-free flavoring in it and maybe some decaf tea with no sweetening of any kind.  Today I am more tired than I have any right to be.

Tonight, I will go to bed earlier so I can feel more rested.

Last night, we spent an absurd amount of money buying a cartful of fruits and veggies.  Last night, I spent an hour pealing grapefruit and oranges and slicing pineapple and apples and getting food ready for today.  Last night, I ate fried chicken for the last time in a while and it gave me gas and made me feel really gross.  And then I ate handfuls of peanut M&Ms, since I won’t be able to eat them again, either.

Today, I’m starting to learn how to fill my body with healthy food and learn not to crave the unhealthy food so much.  Today, I’m not entirely sure if that’s going to be possible, but I’m committed to giving this experiment a solid 7 days of effort.  So today I shall eat nothing but fruit.


  1. Way to go, Kylene!!! You are inspiring me, too, and making me feel a tad bit guilty.
