— Jeanette Winterson, Why Be Happy When You Could Be Normal? (via bookmania)
Another day where I slept right until the last minute. I think Friday will go the same, usually when I have to be up early I have little time for breakfast.
Breakfast was very quick, I had an apple on the way to my class. The apple was good. I was hoping to have a bowl of granola again but no time.
Lunch went way better I had a peach, brown-rice crisps, carrots, and cucumbers. I notice I’ve been eating more snacks. I think this diet would be much better if I actually had time to cook.
Supper did not have a good ending. I went for sushi, it was an avocado roll, and was really good. I also had a tofu roll, and not using soy sauce wasn’t a big deal. I finished off the meal with a order of green tea ice cream. I wanted something sweet so bad. So I had one teaspoon… and stopped. I felt so guilty. I gave it away almost as soon as I got it. Sure enough I paid for it 15 minutes later. Straight to the washroom for me, and than stomach pains for the next two hours.
End of the day I sat at home watched Dexter and wished my stomach pains would go away. I’m going to have to say I’m scared that I won’t be able to eat ice cream, or have any dairy when I’m done this detox. :(
TUESDAY!! Woke up Tuesday morning feeling a 100%! I actually got up early enough to watch TV and enjoy my breakfast.
For breakfast I had Bob’s Red Mill Natural Granola with some earth’s own RYZA milk.
For lunch I ended up eating a bowl of soup with a cup of coffee.
For supper I had some chicken and a baked potato. This was definitely my last baked potato for a while. I never really liked potatoes to begin with.
Snacks: Almonds Carrots Spinach
By the end of the day I had sugar cravings and really wanted some cake. I love cake, I love mashing it up and eating it. Sounds sick but.. I could not and cannot stop thinking about it. I would also like to add that I have been having strange dreams about eating. I think this restricted diet is actually getting to me.
So I been away from my computer for awhile so now I’m playing catch up with my daily posts. Thankfully I wrote down some notes each day.
Breakfast was very small and fast. I had an apple and celery. I slept in so I ended up just grabbing a few things and heading to class.
Lunch was a bit better because I had a bowl of vegetable soup and brown rice crisps. Drank a cup of coffee.
Supper was at RockCreek and very filling. I ordered salmon, a baked potato,and grilled vegetables. It seems I order this every time I go out but it is hard to find things that don’t have some sort of dairy product on them. Well at an average restaurant anyway.
Snacks: Almonds Carrots
Later that evening I did manage to check out the movie, Project X, with a friend. I was really looking forward to the to popcorn but…that took a turn for the worst. I found out that I get motion sickness… So ten minutes after I ate a few handfuls of popcorn I ended up rushing to the bathroom to puke. I did end up watching the whole movie, but it was more of me staring at the seat beside me hoping I wouldn’t barf again.
As for the washroom breaks lately…supper hit me pretty hard. I can hear and feel my stomach quite often now.
The Movie topped it off the day because I ended up cheating on my diet. I cheated… not by choice… I did throw up three times which resulted in sipping on a Gatorade and Gravol before bed. Gatorade is definitely not apart of the meal plan.
So day three was nerve racking because I had to make my way back to the city and go to work. I was very nervous I wouldn’t stay within the diets rules.
Once again, I had brown rice cakes and peanut butter, celery, and a cup of coffee.
I had an apple and brown rice. It wasn’t much because I was in a hurry to get on the road.
I had a bowl of vegetable soup, half tossed salad, and a cup of coffee. There wasn’t much to choose from at the staff cafeteria, and the coffee was too strong. Although I thought I did a good job at staying within the rules at work, even with people offering me candy and mints.
Today I noticed that I did not eat as much. Maybe because my diet is very limited when there are no grocery stores around. I tried to pick up something quick from a convenient store and of course that was an epic fail. Thankfully I had some sliced cucumbers for the road.
I would like to note that I have to make more stops to the washroom when I eat heavier things, such as rice and meat. The vegetables and fruit don’t effect me as much.
