Hello! Hope everyone had a nice little Monday
I had two beefy burgers for breakfast
Well actually they were banana scrambles spiked with cocoa.
Dense, gooey, chocolate pudding rounds. Yum!
I went to work for the day and then to YOGA! I started off with a 50 minute Ashtanga class but the 75 minute on that followed sounded so inviting! So I stayed for a second class.
Such a great end to a Monday and the end of a cleanse!
Yep, today was the last day of cleansing, it has been quite an experience!
Food I missed the most:
Cheese. Hands down.
Tomatoes and green tea, I’m not going to cry myself to sleep over that, though.
Eating a big plate of stir fry and AFTER realizing that my soy sauce had HFCS. What!? Into the trash it went.
Food I don’t want to eat again for a very long time:
Almond Butter and eggs
I’m much less bloated than I was before the cleanse. There are a few occasions when I experienced stomach discomfort but I’m feeling pretty good. No, my digestive issues have not magically resolved themselves, but I have a better awareness of how certain foods make me feel, and I’ll do my best to hold on to that awareness now that I can go back to feasting on yogurt bowls, peanut butter sandwiches and cheesy pasta. All in moderation, of course ; – )
Most of all, I’m looking forward to my cup of tea tomorrow morning and a big, foamy cafe au lait some time this weekend.
Though I’m looking forward to all these foods that I haven’t eaten for the last 28 days, I don’t actually feel the craving for anything. Basically for the past two weeks, after I lost all excitement for this cleanse and just started to focus on finishing what I had started, I’ve been eating to stay alive and not cranky. I didn’t have much fun with my food, which I am completely aware is possible when you are following a restricted diet, but I really just lost inspiration after a while. As a result, my taste buds seem to have forgotten how to party. Gluten-free bread can do that… I’m sure they’ll wake up again as soon as they have their first taste of peanut butter after a month
