Monday 19th September 2016.
Today is a new day and the fact that I got to my initial goal of 70lbs yesterday was perfect timing.
I feel now that I can start again. My next big goal now is to lose 30lbs by new year. So now is the time when I need to move onto the next chapter.
I have been planning for a while to do another detox. I have always had it in my diary to start it today. That’s why it’s perfect timing.
So I am back on day 1 all I can remember from the detox last time was that it was really hard, I was extremely hungry and I had a few major meltdowns.
I am hoping I cope a lot better than last time. On phase 1 I have 3 meals a day and they can consist of either fruit for each meal, vegetables for each meal or potatoes for each meal.
Last time I had fruit the first day and potatoes the 2nd. The potato day was the worst day ever – I don’t think I am going to eat potato wedges ever again. The fruit day wasn’t so bad though.
So today I ate only fruit. I had apples for breakfast, mangos for lunch and melon for dinner. I have been alright – there were times when I got hunger pains and the feeling of being lightheaded.
All in all I have coped quite well. That was until it came to picking the kids up from school. I got the first 2 ok then one son was so late arriving which made me late for the next one. When I went to get him, he wasn’t there at all. Which sent me on a wild goose chase looking for him. I finally heard that he was getting a lift home sometime later. I really wasn’t best pleased.
Today wasn’t the best day for the kids to try my patience. When you are hungry it doesn’t take much to send you off on one.
I however have got through the day without giving into temptation. I think a lot of relaxation is required though for the rest of the day.
