Another day survived! Felt slightly flu-like (Doug Graham says that can be one of the symptoms of detox), but not too bad. Just some back stiffness, slight loss of appetite and slight headache at the end of the day. But not nearly as bad as the day before.
I ate 2 pecans in the morning, then a 9 banana+pomegranate milkshake, that my kids stole some of. :) (It was funny because I didn't even know I had a pomegranate, but when I removed the rotting Halloween pumpkin from my fridge, there it was, hiding behind it!) Then I ate about 5 apples, 16 dates, 1/2 a cucumber, some carrot shreds and about 6 stalks of celery.
Okay... I know I said I was gonna do banana island, but with my appetite all whacky from the detox, I think it's best that I eat what appeals to me, rather than under-eat on bananas because I don't want them as much.
By the way, I kept hearing people say to eat celery when you crave salt. Last night, my celery tasted salty to me for the first time! It was crazy. Maybe it was just that bunch that I bought, but it was like super-salty! I had to spit the first bite out because I wasn't used to that. Then I couldn't stop eating it. It seemed like the bottom of the stalk was much saltier than the rest though. Anyone else think celery is salty?
Then, I crashed at around 8:30pm again. Which is so cool, because I used to not feel like going to sleep until 11-12:00. Then I got up at 7:30 without any alarm clock. :) I love not waking up to an alarm clock, but unfortunately I'm not ready to do that during the week yet. I can't risk being late for work.
When I woke up, I went pee. Then I stood up, looked in the toilet and thought to myself, "did I pee?" Why, you ask, am I telling you this? My pee was clear!!!!
It's important to reward and acknowledge yourself for the little things, because those are what are going to add up to the big things. You can't become a long-term lfrv overnight. It takes time, persistence and consistency. But if you take it one day at a time, you'll climb higher and higher, see more and more of the beautiful landscape and eventually realize you're a the top. And then you can build a little house there and enjoy living at the top. And then when you're ready, you can invite other people over to your house and have some banana tea and dates. :)
