Whoa. It’s amazing what doing with a little less (in this case no solid food, only specific kinds of juice, water and herbal tea) will give you in return. Today was like a celebration of life! Totally silly to say, I know, but it was! Instead of spending a lot of my time throughout the day thinking about food, I spent it focusing on other things that were important to me like my work (I was more productive than usual), my friends, my music and occasionally trying to not think about food. I definitely seemed to have more time on my hands. 🙂
I felt a little lighter today, literally… and a little happier. A change in perspective can do that for me sometimes. I mean, don’t get me wrong, I’m hungry but I got through my first day without cheating at all. I really didn’t want food except when I saw someone else eating. I’m looking forward to tomorrow.
Keep on keepin’ on,
