Woke up this morning feeling hungry, but decently well-rested. Had some caffeine-free Tulsi tea, on Christie's recommendation. I felt better than I did yesterday, less sluggish and fuzzy, but that could be sleeping more.

I've had that persistent mild headache all day, but its not awful. Something new today: I ate my lunch and felt full! As I was getting to the last 5 or so bites of soup, I noticed it. I finished and I didn't want anymore. Yay!

Also, yesterday's craving was pizza and breadsticks. Today, it's sweet and sour chicken. I wonder what tomorrow will bring.


I didn't post this yesterday, because by the time I got home, I was so tired that I could barely move. Richie told me he thought I needed to quit the cleanse, or at least just skip to the second week, where I'd be eating more protein. I found myself feeling really despondent and deprived, and I was on the cusp of agreeing with him. Then he offered me a bite of pizza.And I realized I didn't want any. I mean, I DID, my brain did...but I couldn't get myself to take a bite of it. After I ate my dinner, I felt a little better, but still very lethargic.
