Day 11 - Fruit and Veg Cleanse

How was your day, Tina?  Well, thank you for asking.  My day was an epic fail.  Here's how my day SHOULD have been:

"Today you will do the second of your two fruit & veg cleanses. Notice that each cleanse occurs before you are eliminating a significant animal product from your diet-first meat, and now cheese. The cleanse should help you to adapt a little better to the elimination, especially psychologically, and should also help reduce your cravings for these foods."
Sarah Taylor. Vegan in 30 Days: Get Healthy. Save the World. (Kindle Locations 297-298). Kindle Edition.

And here's how it actually went down:

"After spending your evening crying and feeling sorry for yourself, because you are lonely and your kid is about to leave you for a week, you will wake up and eat yet another handful of Bottle Caps from that flippin' huge Blockbuster box.  You will then eat a tuna sandwich for lunch, because you just bought bread and tuna is great on really fresh bread; plus, you know that your tuna days are numbered.  You will redeem yourself by eating a huge plateful of colorful sauteed veggies and mushrooms for dinner, but this doesn't change the fact that you are still ALONE."

Sigh.  Sorry, Sarah.  I've failed at yet another cleanse day.  The truly ironic part is, I've really only been eating fruit and veggies anyhow.   It appears that the only time I fall off the wagon is when I KNOW I can't eat anything else, and when I'm in a pissy mood.

Ah, but dearest reader - note that, whilst I did slip an eensy bit, I did NOT violate any of the other rules!!!  Note that I did NOT run down to the mini mart and buy enough Smoke-a-ronis and chicken and swiss sandwiches to pave my driveway!   This is PROGRESS, people.  Progress.

As far as the rest goes, well, what can I say.  Neither LB nor any other man has, to date, discovered how wonderful I am, as evidenced by my complete lack of dates planned for this week.  Usually I'm okay with that, but sometimes it gets to me. 

Today, it's getting to me.

What's getting to you?  I'd love to hear from you.
