The rest of DAY 5
Okay, this was a very difficult day but, I think I made some good choices in sticking with the detox diet. After I posted to the blog yesterday, my girlfriend and I went out for a late brunch. We went to my favorite place for pancakes and scones, Hi-Spot in Madrona. BTW, the lemon current scone is the best!
I ordered the steel cut oatmeal with raisins and a cup of hot herbal tea. This was a good choice because this meal was gluten and wheat free and the raisins counted as a serving of fruit.
As I watched my girlfriend nibble on the lemon current scone and take a stab at clearing her plate full of roasted potatoes and a salmon omelet, I had a private moment of blissful accomplishment. I resisted not only the scone but I made a great choice for brunch and enjoyed my bowl of steel cut oatmeal knowing that I was one day closer to my goal.
We stopped by Costco (again???) and this time there was no sampling of goodies and treats.
At 5:30 PM, I drank 12 oz of the Green Smoothie. Now that I have most of my tastes buds back, I am sorry say that the smoothie tastes really bad. What the heck am I drinking?! bad. I drank it anyway. I just downed it and chased it with a full cup of water. I then followed it up with a bowl of kiwi, strawberries, rice cereal and unsweetened apple sauce. It was just something I threw together to cut the edge off my hunger.
About an hour later, my niece and I played the Michael Jackson Experience game. We had a blast and I broke into a serious sweat. This game provides a workout for sure.
At 7:30 PM, the game playing was over and I took my meds and vitamins with water and cashews and I settled in for the rest of the night.
All in all, I probably didn't consume enough calories and those calories I did get would not have sustained a 5 year old but, I think I am about done with this part of the detox. I have two days left, and I am going to make it count. No more Green Smoothie. Tomorrow, lets move on to fruit filled smoothies that don't taste like you are eating dirt and grass.
