So.. I'm writing this blog post the day after Easter. It was very difficult for myself to resist the temptations of food. A part of my family came in from out of town & we all met out to dinner with my grandparents. The first thing that started to get to me was the menu. Holy s***, that menu! It was full of fattening foods, sandwiches & sides. Since I did have to eat food on Easter, I decided to get a salad. But my cravings took over my mind & I ordered a Caesar salad.. wiiiiiiith a crab cake on top, dressing on the side. But that wasn't the end of it.
After dinner, we were all heading back to my grandparents, where she had a cake sitting out & ready for us all to dig in. I got a small slice, & then we played Boggle. It was a lot of fun & I was happy I got to see my family. So that is the important thing that matters -- I was happy. I know I shouldn't get discouraged in myself, but the point of this fast was to cleanse my body of sugars, salts & other fattening, GMO or greasy foods. But it's alright. I still have 4 more days to reconnect & reboot my body.
So far I have don much better & with a smile on my face.
