For now, letting go of eggs will be enough of a change. Actually, I had been thinking of letting go of eggs for a while now because of one specific reason. WARNING: If you love eggs, don't read the following sentence because I don't want to gross you out. I've been noticing what I assume is blood in eggs lately...for like the past few weeks, but I've just ignored it and continue to eat them. I use cage free brown eggs, so you'd think they are healthy...anyway, glad I'm finally going to give it a try. With the rest, I'll take baby steps!
The day has started off nice - slept in till about 10 (I woke up a couple times this morning and ended up turning off the alarm). Had a yummy green juice. I should have written down the amounts of stuff I used since it tasted good. This is roughly what I put in:
- 1/2 cucumber
- 1 green pear
- 4 or 5 celery stalks
- 2 or 3 romaine leaves
- 2 or 3 kale leaves
- 2 or 3 twigs (?) parsley
- 1/2 inch ginger
- 1/2 inch lemon slice with rind
It was very refreshing and felt clean. I know it probably sounds weird that a juice felt clean, but that's the description that came to mind.
Did a quick weights workout at home and had a yummy salad beast for lunch, the same as the other day.
Plans for the rest of the day include trying to be productive! Here's what I'm aiming for:
- finish CSD
- do a load of laundry
- make Indian food for hubby
- work on writing an essay (school-related)
- play with the doggies, get some outdoor activity in
Hope you all have a great Monday! Since I'm on Spring Break, I actually like this week's Monday! ;)
