I'm trying to keep my business, my triplets, and my waistline under control. I excel at one of those, fail at another one of those, and one is a work in progress. Which is which is day dependant.

Detoxing Diva, Day One

Contrary to popular belief (and recent posts) I'm actually pretty positive about all this. Now while I didn't exactly bound out of bed and eat an entire bowl full of quinoa, I did look forward to my detoxed self looking hot in a bikini (someday).

So - Day One.

Pros:
- I like pineapple juice
- I felt quite full for most of the day
- I ate 2 more pieces of fruit than I otherwise would have
- I avoided gorging on the pizza that was at the temple gig tonight. Actually, I ate none. (Mostly because they ran out, but also because I am, of course, perfectly in control here. *snicker*)

Cons:
- The mix-with-water supplement very nearly made me hurl, twice. Man but that is NASTY stuff. Bearable only in pineapple juice.
- I think I'll have to meal plan a lot more than I am now. I've realised that a lot of my carb eating comes from convenience. Much easier to throw together a sandwich and bowl of cereal than it is to throw together a quinoa and beetroot salad with a side of sardine fillets. I'll get over this, though.
- I'm always thinking ahead to my next meal. I'd rather NOT have to think so hard, but I think this too will ease with time.

...and before you think I have it "in for" quinoa (and I get a nasty email from the Quinoa Justice League or something), let's just say it's such a dorky grain (being ancient, weird looking and all) that it's easily made fun of. There's got to be something I make fun of, right?

In a nutshell, Day One = EASY PEASY LEMON SQUEEZY (lemon being on the approved list of course.)

You have inspired me to look up the eat for your blood type stuff again and pay attention - last year I gave up chicken for 6 months and lost about 6 kilos in that time. I am here for support as a B+ buddy. Great to see you today, miss you at TBG xxxx
