I know I'm a day behind you all and I applaud you for it. Yesterday was intense. I had a persistent pounding headache until I finally fell asleep around 1 a.m. this morning. Fortunately today I woke up feeling a little more refreshed, but still pretty groggy without my morning coffee. The cleansers at Whole Living decided to all band together for support, so we juiced together this morning and will be rotating lunch duty this week. It definitely helps to have people around you who are on board, although we all agree that we are tirrreeddd. When 3 p.m. rolled around it seemed we all entered a sluggish fog. Some are hungry. Some feel bloated from all the vegetables. All of us coffee drinkers are drained.
We all noshed on the Avocado with Bell Pepper and Tomatoes today---they were really delicious! Janice, Whole Living's copy editor, made the Dried Fruit and Nut Bites, so I had a couple of those earlier, too, along with a handful of trail mix. I'm trying not to snack too much today. In order to really give your digestive system a rest (and hopefully drop a couple lbs), you don't want to constantly be taking in food.
What have you noticed the most about your regular eating habits? I, for one, am so much more of a grazer than I once thought! In the magazine, reigistered dietician Cynthia Sass says to only eat when you're really hungry (ie stomach growling), a feeling you should have about 4 times each day. I feel like most days at the first inkling of hunger, I reach for food, rather than making sure it's not just my body's signal for water.
Looking forward to hearing how you all are doing, and hoping that I wake up feeling refreshed tomorrow!
