I want carbohydrates. I want carbs so stupidly much. But I’m trying not to think about it and drink water and eat this orange. I’m not hungry. I just want something other than fruit. And I’ve only just started!
Good gosh! I’m STILL tired? This is just absurd. Also? Strawberries are DELICIOUS.
I don’t understand how my stomach can rumble like it’s hungry when I’ve been grazing on fruit all morning. Okay, so I didn’t for like 45 minutes there because the thought of eating more fruit was making me nauseated, but I shouldn’t get rumbling stomach hungry after less than an hour of not eating. Time to eat some apple. Also? I am STILL tired.
My kidneys should be clean by the end of today, that’s for sure!
I went out for a walk for lunch because everyone started warming up their food and it all smelled SO GOOD! I had to get outside and away from what everyone was eating. It’s a beautiful day outside – perfectly warm, soft breezes blowing, clear skies. And walking was so much better than sitting still at my desk.
Tomorrow I’m going to a “Lunch and Learn” lecture about diabetes where they’re providing a small lunch. I don’t know what the lunch is, but I hope it’s as easy to avoid as lunch was today.
Time for grapefruit!
(second update starts here)
Well, I emailed the organizer for the lunch event tomorrow and the menu is sub sandwiches, chips, and fruit. All of which sound SO GOOD right now. But I’ll pack my own lunch tomorrow and stick to the plan.
Strawberries = more filling than grapefruit.
The citric acid is starting to get to make my mouth sore. I mean, I had a sore that I already knew about yesterday because my teeth were rubbing at it. And then I found out that my gums are sensitive to acid this morning. But now I’m starting to get that feeling like after eating too many Atomic Fireballs candy. That whole: “Where did the lining in my mouth go?! Give it back!!”
I need to drink more water.
I am really, really tired.
I ate all the pineapple that I brought with me today. I’m pretty sure I’m really going to regret that. And I’m still really tired, so I’ll be heading to bed early tonight. I have to keep my concentration up for 45 more minutes and then I can go home.
(third update starts here)
I’m heading to bed in a couple minutes. But I’ve finished bagging up cauliflower and the steamed broccoli is cooling in containers on the counter before I put it into the fridge. I’m waiting for the acorn squash to finish up baking and then I’ll be all set. I’ve got a pre-made grocery brand salad in the fridge that I’ll take for my lunch and it looks *delicious.* I just wish I had a ginger dressing that I could put on it. Not today, but I’ll have to note what’s in the salad so we can try it again later with a dressing. For dinner, while I was getting all the veggies ready, I had more cantaloupe and strawberries and water.
I fell asleep in my chair in Justin’s office earlier this evening, waiting for sheets to finish washing, so I have more energy now than I did earlier. But I’m guessing that as soon as my head hits my pillow (freshly washed new sheets! story there that I’ll tell later) I’ll be out within minutes.
Ready to do this all again tomorrow?! 🙂 I’m excited about all the conversation we’ve had going on today! It really helped a lot.
Love to you all!
