Day 10: Sometimes I just don't FEEL like eating

There are times (like right now) where I don't feel like eating.  It takes forever.  The cutting, the chewing, the coldness (1/2 a watermelon for breakfast).

Cold fruit makes cold hands and a cold belly.  I keep telling myself that once it gets in there it will keep me warm when it gets burnt up for energy...that really doesn't do much to alleviate the annoyance that I feel sometimes (right now) over the business of eating.

I am sure that I am overreacting.  But don't you all feel that way sometimes? 

Today I miss coffee.  It's day 4 without it.  I wonder if some peppermint tea will fill that void.  Is tea 80/10/10?  I suppose it's only boiled leaf and water.

I cannot figure out why I am so crabby today.  I ate a LOT yesterday (4000+ calories) this is mainly due to a massive amount of bananas, oranges, dates and sweet corn (which is apparently just pure sugar) and spinach for dinner.  Nobody ever mentions sweet corn on this website even though it's huge in carbohydrate calories.  Why?  Is it not good?  Optimal?  Probably I won't have it again for a while.  For days I've been craving it and specifically the sulfur'y sweet blend of corn and spinach.  I ate a lot and don't imagine myself eating it again any time soon.

I do want to say that, on the non-crabby side of things, my 5k time is STILL improving.  Right now it feels like I could crank up the speed more every day and never stop improving (obviously there is a limit to how fast a human can run so I know that this incremental improvement trip is finite).

The caffeine withdrawal headache seems to be kicking in today...sort of suddenly considering I've been off of the stuff for 4 days.

I know that what I'm doing for my body is the best and kindest thing...today it just seems sort of challenging.  I'm tired.

As far as cold fruit goes it might be better to bring out what you are going to eat the night before so it is at room temp. Or drink some warm lemon water or something after.

I use peppermint tea as a substitute for coffee.  It will get a LOT easier.  Six months ago I used to be hooked on my large sized espresso every morning.  I find the peppermint tea very refreshing and it satisfies completely my need for "hot".

I quit coffee recently after many failed efforts.  Each time I tried I just enjoyed the extra amount of sleep I was able to get.  Sleep whenever you can, stay in bed if you can and yeah eating a lot is good.

It is a common feeling among people who suffer from caffeine dependency.  I used to be hooked on coffee, oh my, it was as if i was on drugs, i mean hard drugs. The worst part was i was learning how to drive at the time, and i wasn't be able to focus if i did not get my morning fix. It was crazy i would scream at my uncle and blame him for my terrible driving (at the time). You just need to break through the next few days, its been four so far, you're almost there so just hang on, your system needs to clean out.

awww, don't be discouraged. I totally understand how you feel, it would help to prepare certain meals before hand, say maybe 1-2 days in advance, especially if its fruit. Basically whenever you get a boost of energy make good use of it by preparing your meal for the next few days. Just keep strong.
