Man! I didn’t realize I had gotten behind.
These days I really started to feel the effects of the detox. I had low energy, headaches and an overall moody temperment. However, the food choices are great and my cravings have certainly subsided a lot. There are still times throughout the day I want something but they are mental and not consuming my like they had before. I truly feel like I’m eating REAL food and so I don’t feel deprived at all.
Saturday was probably one of the worst days on side effects. I’m trying to follow the program as closely as possible but there are some things that just won’t work. For example, when I started I knew it would be easy to avoid things in certain social situation and prepare food for myself for the 21 days. However, 2 days before I started, I was asked out on a date. I don’t date, in fact, I really didn’t think it was in the cards for me. I was elated to go out and realized that part of going on a date was partaking in a few things that aren’t necessarily 100% 21DSD. I think I just have to be okay with that. So, I have allowed myself a little bit of wine. However, Saturday, after Friday’s date, I had an aweful spell where I got super dizzy and had a raging headache. I couldn’t see straight and couldn’t walk very well. So, post 21DSD, I’ll need to really keep the alcohol in check. Additionally, future dates will need to be slightly different.
My meals have been roughly the same all week. It’s just so easy to prepare 1 breakfast, 1 lunch, and 2-3 dinners and eat off of those for a week. It saves money and time for me. Plus, I’m only feeding one person. Diane’s recipes have been fantastic and I’m really looking forward to following these meals after the 21DSD.
