hello, my name is re-tox

eating is so much fun that i haven't had time to update this here bloggy-blog.

i started eating solid foods on thursday night, but stuck pretty closely to just eating fruits and vegetables. that had been my plan since wednesday night, but actually all i had to eat all day was an orange before i went to work at the restaurant... i'd had probably a quarter of a gallon of watered down sugar cane juice mix, plus the orange, and that was it for the day. clearly my brain wasn't plugged into my head, because i forgot to take my juice to work, and got hungry almost as soon as i got there. T.O.R.T.U.R.E.
i was really, really about to lose it, and just chow down on some delicious rathbun's food, but i resisted all night, and by the time i got home i had zero willpower left. my willpower was in the negative numbers. i ate a peanut butter sandwich. mmmmmm.

friday & saturday i ate mostly fruits and veggies, and didn't have my first coffee until saturday night at work. triple iced americano. mmmmmm X 12. i also had a generous amount of vodka, which was mmmmmm until sunday morning. i think my body is sufficiently re-toxinated.

last night greg, scott, bridget & i feasted at lush, the vegan restaurant where scott had his last meal before the fast. holy un-animal-product goodness. that shit was amazing, especially the chocolate dessert platter. yay for vegan food that tastes like it's full of butter!!

okay, time for my ponderations post-fast:
1. REALLY glad i did it- i do feel like i cleansed myself of a lot of junk that was sitting around in my body, beat my caffeine addiction, proved my will-power is pretty damn strong, and regained some appreciation for food, which were kind of my reasons for trying the fast to start off with.
2. i think if i did it again, i'd do 5 days. that seemed long enough to cleanse sufficiently, but short enough to where i wasn't about to eat my arm out of boredom.
3. i still haven't decided how i'm going to deal with coffee now that i'm not a raging psycho when i don't have it first thing in the morning. i absolutely *love* the stuff, so it's going to be hard to not get addicted again.... so much so that i'm not sure i'm going to try. i do think it'd be healthy for me to cut back a bit- i'm debating sticking to drinking herbal tea when i'm at work or school instead of coffee.
4. i also lost weight on the fast, but i'm pretty sure i'll gain it back relatively soon. i went from 116 to 112 in 2 days. next time you need to drop a couple of pounds, just don't eat! works wonders.

you lose!

just kidding. you did great. i'm very impressed, especially with your ability to pull that coffee monkey off your back, and slap him around a bit. i think the herbal tea thing is a great idea. i promise you won't lose your love for coffee.

as far as "not eating", the loss of weight was nice, and i believe we were taking in a decent amound of calories and nutrients. seems like a relatively healthy liquid diet, unlike your saturday night...

now take it easy with the retox, k?
