Detox Day 9

Yesterday was one if those "I can't believe it's only been 9 days" kinda days. I woke up in a foul mood (see the post below). I have known forever that I eat when I'm stressed, sad, mad & yesterday was no different. I was starving when I got to work & promptly ate way more trail mix then I should have. Don brought me coffee & that was so sweet that my bad mood evaporated. Macy's has that effect in me! Too bad I can't drink a whole cup yet! Just too much caffeine.

For lunch I had some leftover lentil stew, which was better the night before, leftover gingered salmon & 1/2 an avocado. I have become obsessed with avocados! Damn, I love them!

Went to yoga & it was fabulous! Once again the teacher was so intuitive that all the poses she did involved stretches that I had just been told I needed to do to loosen up my back, hips & hamstrings. Random. But something really weird happened. In corpse pose you lay on the mat & completely relax & shut your eyes. This teacher sings a calming song & normally I just drift along. But last night every time I shut my eyes I saw this big, albino snake coming at me fangs bared. I am deathly afraid of snakes...I can't even look at pictures of them! I'd frantically open my eyes, close them again only to see the inside if the snakes throat. What the hell? Freaked me out! Hope to not repeat that again!

When I got home we had a heated family discussion about being responsible & doing what you need to do to be proud of yourself. Long story. We ended with a talk on quitting the detox early. Maybe Saturday for the family birthday party. We, ok I, talked about limiting processed food & meats. I think before we stop we will have to have a plan. One that is home cooked meals, limited eating out & way less meat. We'll see...it's something we all need to agree on. Easier said than done, but I'm optimistic!

  1. Any one else think that some sugar and vodka would make the snake go away? Audra
