Today...ehhh....not so good

So, today at work I had my 35 Oz of water....35 Oz of juice and my cucumber and apples as snacks. For dinner, I repeated the Mahi Mahi with couscous.  It was not as good the second time around.  The first time I had pearled couscous and I really enjoyed it.  But when I cooked It last night, I found some regular couscous in the grocery store.  It was ok, just preferred the texture of the pearled couscous.   Well....I didn't drink but 8oz of my smoothie....and drank no water during the day.  That's not good.  I did eat my snacks and dinner at 9ish.  Thise cucumbers are sooooo good!!!  Right now, after dinner, I am stuffed.  I have to make sure I drink my smoothie first thing and drink at least half of the water when I get to work.  I have to go to the bathroom very frequently because I drink the water so close to bed time.  Bad idea.  Tonight I'll drink the water but tomorrow I'll try to drink it during the day mostly.  We'll see.  I don't know if anyone reads these....say hi if you are ;)

Today's eats

Today I started the day with some Berry Detox tea sweetened with organic Stevia.  I used a spoonful of Stevia....and man that stuff is sweet.  It's a different kind of sweet though...not like sugar, but still very good.  That Berry Detox tea is really strong, so the sweetener did nicely making it ok to drink.  I have a 32 Oz bottle of water and 32 Oz of Berry Pineapple smoothie.  I didn't like it at first, but I've been sipping all day.  It's grown on me.  I cut the cucumbers last night and seasoned them with sea salt and pepper and some Newmans Own Caesar Dressing.  That dressing is sooooo good...those cucumbers were so tasty.  I gave my husband a bigger serving than I gave myself...I won't do that again.  I also had HoneyCrisp apples.  I like those the best.  Had Red Delicious yesterday...they were not crisp, kind of soggy...I dunno.  I didn't like them.  Tonight Pineapple Mahi Mahi.  I don't think I've ever had Mahi Mahi before...I cooked it last night and of course I had to taste was really good.  I posted a pic in another post...looks good right??  Happy Eating!

Crappy.  Ugh.  Stomach in knots.  Light feeling of a headache.  Just not good.  I mean...I can't be experiencing food withdrawal,  can I?  Am I going through withdrawal of being addicted FOOD???  I have done this why am I feeling this way?  Definitely not 100%.  Feel a little nauseous too....I am very aware of my salivary glands in the back of my jaw.  Feels weird.  Just want to go home and lay on the couch.   I have to get to the gym and walk on the treadmill at least 20 minutes,  or do the 30 minute circuit.   Energy....fading....and it's only 11 a.m.

30 Day Challenge

So today, I started JJ Smiths 30 day challenge.  You have 2 smoothies and one meal with snacks.  Doesn't seem too hard. I had a smoothie this morning for breakfast,  with a cup of green tea.  I had a salad as a snack as I continued chewing on my smoothie.  For dinner, I had collards stir-fried with Turkey sausage.  It. Was. Delicious.  Period.  Tomorrow,  same thing repeated but with a pineapple berry smoothie.
