Day 3 was a bit easier. Boston had an orthodontist appointment on the other side of the city so I was distracted from my morning hunger. I had a banana and coffee for breakfast. After he was done with his appointment we went to Safeway where they had pints of strawberries 3 for $5. We went to target afterwards to pickup a few more things for Julie’s birthday (3/29). I had quinoa (and strawberries) for lunch which tasted unbelievably salty. I have had this particular quinoa many times since going vegan nearly 2 years ago but it never tasted that salty. I think I might have been dehydrated despite chugging water. Part of the detoxification process, maybe? I was really tired before going to amazon so I took a nap.
I feel guilty napping when my kids are home but this challenge is being done for me AND for them.
I had chips and hummus for dinner with sriracha mixed in. It tasted a lot like the curry hummus which I really like but can’t often find in the area I live in. I should have had cucumber instead of chips, saving my last cucumber for Thursday’s lunch.
I drank a ton of water in both water and seltzer water form. I spent the best part of 4 hours picking up boxes and envelopes and lifting them into the sort slides at Amazon. I was sweating and my back was killing me at the end. Some of those boxes are super heavy so I got an exceptional workout today. I did not feel like my blood sugar was low at Amazon (no dizziness) and was less sluggish than on Tuesday.
