Detox Days 2 & 3

Sorry I got behind with the detox updates!

So day 2 was way easier than day one for me. I seemed to just sail through the day like nothing was different! I'm not sure what made it different, other than it was the second day and I was so happy I made it through the first day!

Then day 3. Day 3 was weird. It wasn't really hard - it was just that I seemed to hit this wall - I'm sick of this food and really, REALLY want some spaghetti - kinda day.

The whole thing is a mind over matter deal. It's not that the food is bad or weird or even hard to eat, it's just in my mind I want all the foods that are bad for me. I want to eat the foods I've been eating and have been craving but I know I shouldn't have!

It's totally weird how the mind controls so much of what I think I want to eat!

So all this has brought me to this question - one that I've pondered before - why is so much of my day, my time, and my thoughts wrapped up in food? It's a good question don't you think?

I'm not sure I have a good answer for that, I have a few thoughts, but I'd love to hear your thoughts if you have any! So please feel free to share!

Here are a few interesting things about the foods we've eatten this week - so far. This is as for the end of day 3.

I've lost 4 pounds.

We've eaten:

6 bell peppers

1 pound of mixed greens salad

3 pints of blueberries

2 pints of strawberries

2 onions

3 cucumbers

6 tomatoes

3 pounds of apples

1 pound of baby carrots

8 oz mushrooms

5 banana's 

Well, that's most of the foods, not all of them, but most of them.

So I'll be trying to be on top of things and blog again tomorrow about day 4!

Keep up the good work. I need to do the same thing. The mind really does come in play and it is so weird. Thanks for the encouragement, I need to do another detox.
