Cleanse: Day 4 Update 1


(Lately I think I start every blog post with "so."


I did a great job with the protein and fruit yesterday but not a great job with the veggies so I am eating a huge plate of lettuce with avocado, slivered almonds, peas, garbanzo beans, craisins and edamame.

Lately I've been hearing a lot in the news about how it's not true that eating healthy costs more than eating poorly. My take on that: bullshit. My food bill this week is through the roof. AND I have to go to the store every day for fresh veggies and fruits. You can get a 20 pack of burgers for $9.99 at the grocery to go with hamburger buns for $1.99. I feel like I'm eating $12 in one day, if not one salad alone from the grovery.


I digress again.

What I wanted to say in this Day 4 update is that I am tired and very low on energy. I have a stack of papers on my kitchen table that need to be filed and I just cannot motivate to do it. I need to pay the bills. These are things that usually can be done on low energy days because you don't have to go anywhere. You can do it in your sleep practically. But not today. Today I just want to lie down on the couch and stare into space.

Should you feel this badly at this point, Sandie? I think you need more energy foods. Have some of those tortillas that you liked the day before. For me, salad is just not enough it seems. Try those Lenders Bagels you told me about. They are teensy but they do fill one. You need some carbs, I think. Feel better/energetic soon....
