Ten days on, and now, 10 days off? I am afraid to step on the scales. I figure I’ve probably gained 5 lbs. back. I’ll weigh in the morning, promise, and I’ll at least note the weight if I don’t snap a pic. lol
I had purchased containers of Greek yogurt, sour cream, cottage cheese, and cream cheese the day before I watched Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead, and I’ll most likely be tossing them in the garbage if someone else doesn’t eat them soon. I have not been swollen over the past 10 days since eating regular food, so it could very well be the dairy that was causing that. I also need to come back off the coffee and start drinking my tea and lemon water again.
What I have been missing is bread and butter. Lord, do I miss the butter, and more so than the bread. I’ve had at least 1 full tablespoon every day since coming off the fast – on grits, on toast, on baked potato — so not good! I should probably pick up a few avocados for the fat content so I’m not missing it.
Anyhow, tomorrow I will be starting the juicing again. I’ve got collard greens, cucumbers, carrots, apples, sweet potatoes, tomatoes, pineapple, garlic, ginger, and bottled lemon juice in the refrigerator. I will also be busy in my garden. I’ve got seeds for broccoli, small carrots, peas, spinach, beets, kale, leaf lettuce, gourmet blend lettuce, and baby greens. I still need to find Brussels sprouts, Swiss chard and cauliflower seeds, so will do that this weekend. I had a great fall crop last year of all the greens that grew right through to this past spring, and it’s time to get busy planting! 🙂
