Twenty two hours until the Easter Family get together and I don’t know what I’m going to do. I’m already pretty sure that I won’t be able to eat anything over there. I can handle that, I just hate when people question why I’m not eating because I don’t want to go over the whole story about what I’m trying to do. It happens at work often, when someone brings in pie, and I have to say, “no thanks, I’m ok” about ten time throughout the day. I don’t tell anyone what I’m doing, because I don’t want to answer questions. The silliest question is when someone asks me why I’m doing this. The first response that comes to mind is “Why the F!@k do you think I’m doing this, LOOK AT ME !!” but then what comes out of my mouth is “I don’t know, trying to eat a bit healthier, I guess.” Now I just need to figure out what’s going to seem more normal. If I bring my own food, and eat something different then everyone, or just sit there and not eat. I’m leaning towards bringing my own food. I’ll treat it like when I take my lunch to work. Just bring a salad, and maybe some celery or something, that way I don’t need to heat anything up. It should be great, chomping on celery as people wolf down nice succulent Easter ham.
On a personal note, I was getting pains in my stomach last night and again this morning. I’m not sure if the brown rice went bad sitting in the fridge or what’s going on. I seem to be feeling better now. I haven’t had any salad the last few days because I was getting sick of it. Same goes with the brown rice and veg stir fries now. Going down the home stretch I will make that carrot soup and some kind of bean dish to take me through to the end of the cleanse.
Oh today was great too. The local Easter parade, and then a community BBQ where they were giving out free hot dogs and hamburgers, followed by cotton candy. It was just wonderful waiting in line for an hour for something I couldn’t eat. I’m loving this cleanse.
