new games

i’ve decided that it’s really easy to be motivated about something uncomfortable if you know it’s gonna end at some point. at least, that’s been my perspective for the last 6 days. but then day 7 hit (today) and now i’m just trying to hold it together and not feel ticked when i walk into the co-op and only leave with strawberries.

to deal with this, i’ve added some new games to the r-diet beyond just taking pictures of what i eat. it also helped that i got a 30 minute pep-talk from my holistic doctor a few hours ago. the “down-side” to that talk is that she told me no more caffeine. she also told me this diet needs to last more than 14 days: at day 15, i can add back into my diet ONE thing. just one. and then 2-3 days later, depending on how i feel, i can add another thing. just one. and that’s how i proceed, indefinitely, until i’ve added back whatever i want to try. so, this is looking more like a few months than a few weeks.

here are my new games:
*make a list of those things i can’t wait to add back in and get excited about them. (so far, in order: iced tea, alcohol, almond milk. i’m sensing a liquid theme here.)
*take pictures of my food with the hipstamatic app on my phone so i don’t get annoyed that i broke my camera. breakfast today: blueberries (3 of those cups), tea with coconut milk, nectarine:

*start taking the repairVite as a shot in order to get it down 3-times a day. literally put it in a shot glass so it feels faster.

*use the peepshow shot glasses i got for my birthday (a different one each day) so i can have a different peep show every time. hey there marching band boy.

*play how many weird combinations of foods can i create from what’s in my fridge when i’m super sick of eating a pint of blueberries and 2 zucchini squashes a day. today’s weird combination, lunch/dinner: left over grilled chicken, raw carrots, green olives, herb dressing. (it was tasty.)

*begin drinking vanilla flavored seltzer water as my “treat” every evening and be happy that it’s sugar free and tastes like sugar cookies in bubbly liquid form.

    I love Vanilla Seltzer when I’m cleansing/dieting. It fools me into thinking I’m getting a treat .
