Day one was a smashing success. I feel fantastic. I know that it tends to get harder for the next couple days and then easier again at the end, so I'm just enjoying how clean and fresh I feel right now. And yes, that is after only one day of clean food.
Here is what I ate today:
Breakfast: Oatmeal with blueberries and a drizzle of maple syrup. Coffee with coconut milk and agave (very good!)
Snack: Almonds. Peach.
Lunch: Kale, white bean and potato soup.
Banana with almond butter.
Afternoon: Smoothie from the health food store made with banana, peach, orange and wheat grass.
Snack: dried mango.
Dinner: 2 eggs, avocado, organic refried black beans, basmati rice, canteloupe.
I ate dinner after a 10 mile bike ride, so I was ready for a big plate of food. It totally satisfied me. I also decided on this more hearty meal because Sam was eating with me and he is, shall we say, not real satisfied by a regular CFC meal. Last night, he ate a bowl of my Kale soup and while he politely ate it, he was not a fan. When we were talking about it today, I think his words were: "That shit is nasty." The man does not like kale. It's very sad.
Ta da! I'm working on my 5th bottle of water right now, but I actually drank about half of my bike water bottle out on my ride, so I might even be over a gallon. I am finding it waaaay easier to get the water in this time around because of the warmer weather. I am just naturally more thirsty.
Hope everyone else is off to a good start today. Tomorrow is my last day of work, and I'm going to swim afterward which tends to make me very hungry, so we'll see how it goes.
