I am doing very well folks!
I joined Freelee's 30 day challenge. Yesterday was a bit rough as I made a terrible combo for dinner and went to bed hungry. I don't think I will be metal-ing with the greens like kale, or bok choy for my salads. However, today i realized kale and bok choy make nice additions to green smoothies. Since they both taste strong it just balances out nicely for my tastebuds. I am happy because I don't like to waste. I also enjoy salads with romaine, cucumbers, carrot, daikon radish, scallions and lemon juice. YUM! I have all organic produce including fresh cucumbers from my Grandma's garden!!!!
Anyways --- it has been one whole week since my last coffee. I am so proud of myself. I was never a heavy drinker. But I pretty much relied on a soy latte daily in the morning to "get going". I realize now that is not true. I feel fine in the morning without it. In fact I feel better!
1) I don't crash in the afternoon!
2) I am no longer irritable and feeling like I am going to explode with anger!
For the last few months I noticed that when becoming agitated I wanted to just scream and stomp. LOL. However, now I feel more like "myself" - mellow and patient. Which is important when you have a toddler. At first I thought it might be a coincidence, but it isn't...I have definitely seen a shift with my overall mood, and how I handle emotions. I now know I can never go back to it! Even though I haven't quite gotten it right, I have been able to give up diet soda, and coffee on this lifestyle (and again I am not perfect at it yet). So that's pretty cool.
Here is what I ate today:

Now I need to work on increasing my water intake! Thanks for reading!
