it's day 4 already!

Today's Food:
Breakfast: strawberrys, grapes, banana, apple

Lunch: romaine with green velvet dressing, chili
Dinner: carrots & celery with hummus, green beans with almonds

Today was another good day. I did have a mini-craving for chocolate mid-afternoon but I didn't give in to it. For most of the day I felt really good, I think I'm doing pretty well with the "detoxing." I'm finding that it's tough to get away from salt 100%, why oh why does salt have to be in everything? ;-)

Every day reaffirms for me that this is a good choice. Sometimes I think about "regular" food and get a little sad that I can't have it anymore. (For example the cheese and crackers left over from last night's open house at work) But I have to keep reminding myself that life is much better as a healthy and active person (who can shop at J. Crew) than as a fat person who eats pizza and cookies! It really exemplifies Eat to Live for me, and not live to eat.
