Monthly Food Experiment Check In 1/7/13
Day 2- Coincidentally, the stomach flu hits our house. This morning at 2:30 AM it was Scarlett. Scott already had this two days ago. Does this mean that I'm next? We were up about 3 hours-I fell asleep in time for me to get up for work. I have no ability to differentiate exhaustion from lack of sleep or the cleanse. Otherwise, all's ok.
I realized I ate about 7 extra servings today-2 servings of fruit, and the rest vegetables/ soup broth. And a handful of pecans. It feels a bit like cheating, but not really.
Needless to say, it was a pretty quiet afternoon with Scarlett recovering & napping, and my being tired by dinner!
Day 3- Today's my headache day, but very low grade and varying with the food I eat. I'm still eating extra (ie. so far its been blackberries, avocado, and cucumber) in addition to the 3 shakes and 2 bars a day. I have very little appetite but need to eat about every 2 hours or I get low glycemic levels-dizzy, tired. But we still went skating this morning and I will be fine for work this afternoon!
One way to ease this cleanse...soup! Scott made a squash pureed soup today. Yummy! As of today, I'm over half way done the cleanse portion. As a bonus, I still haven't gotten the flu (and I knocked on wood.). I've started checking out some paleo recipes & am getting excited for some more food!
