Day 10-thinking about the future

I title this 'thinking about the future' because I feel like I am to the point that I need to think about what I am going to do after day 21. I am keeping all that decision making in the back of my mind as I go through these days.

I am waiting for the Thrive diet to arrive and want to take a look at that, but I know that it will even be more 'extreme' than this cleanse will be. It is mainly raw foods, and lots of new things that I have never tried before. I would have to 'lean' into that way of life slowly.

6 miles on the treadmill, snowy,windy, messy, yucky outside today.


bf: same oatmeal combo as the last few days (I am cooking 4 more servings of steel cut oats right now)

morning snack: almonds, dried apricot, another serving of mixed nuts that I have as a 'backup" in my school bag. I felt pretty hungry this morning and probably had too many of them.

lunch: BIG salad, 1 cup soup

afternoon: Larabar, pear


dinner: 1/2cup brown rice w/ salsa, leftover roasted potatoes and pears, acorn squash

As I said, I felt pretty hungry today. Then came home from school and found the house smelled of banana bread that Lizzie and Megan had made on the snow day today. Almost had a slice and then rethought that decision.

A little disappointed that my weight is back UP 2 pounds over the last 2 days. WTH?!! I am again blaming it on that time of the month. We will see how tomorrow goes, and I definitely know how fickle the scale can be.

From an OB/GYN nurse standpoint, fear not, that is exactly why your weight fluctuates & it's temporary. It's a curse all women deal with. Increasing your water intake will help w/ fluid retention, but I asuume with this cleanse, you're already drinking a boatload, right?
