My crazy idea to only eat fruit and veggies lasted all of 15 hours. I had been fighting a headache all morning. After our lunch time walk, I felt dizzy and light headed. I needed protein. STAT. I had nothing at my desk to eat and I didn't have any change in my wallet. I hit my friend for a buck and visited the vending machine for a package of peanuts. I inhaled them in the elevator. About 15 minutes later, I started to feel better.
After that all I could think about was food. I wanted real food and I wanted it quick. As I was leaving work, I even considered getting a pizza for the ride home. Thankfully I didn't and somehow I managed to not eat everything in sight when I got home. I decided that this detox business is not for me. I am better off starting off with baby steps like cutting out the candy (proud to say that there was NO candy in my diet yesterday). I also got rid of my double secret stash of Reese's Peanut Butter Eggs. Chubby Hubby was appalled and I am not sure if it was because of the hidden arsenal or if it was because I didn't share. Either way, they are gone.
What did I learn from this fail? This was a stupid idea and I would never make it as a Vegan.
Soooo, now the plan is:
- Up the veggies.
- Up the water.
- Up the exercise.
- Quit candy.
