I did it. 30 days of juice cleanse followed by a triumphant return via Pho Linh last night and Ding Tai Fung Dum Sum today at lunch. No cramps. No bloating. No discomfort. I feel amazing. So much so that I’m determined to keep going.
Last night The Goose and I had Pho before the Serena Ryder show. No booze at the show. We came back to my place and took my new smoker for a test drive but because it was past 10 I didn’t eat any of the tandoori chicken legs. Had Dim Sum w Joel and Nicole Catherine for lunch. No fried foods for me. Salad and grilled fish for dinner.
This juice cleanse was exactly what I needed. I’m grateful to Carol and Nadine at Belmonte Raw for their support and encouragement. I’ve been trying for sooooo long to lose weight. I finally got motivated and with their help, in a mere month I’m halfway towards my goal. I’m happy if it takes another year to reach the weight I’ve set in my mind as that goal. No rush. Festina Lente, right?
I really appreciate all the encouragement I’ve been getting from everyone. The compliments feel good. I’m sleeping better, reacting to the day-to-day stresses better, my clothes fit better and I just generally feel better about my self.
It’s funny too that all those food fantasies I told you about seem to have evaporated. Not sure where they went. Maybe they got detoxed. Cleansed. I don’t know. I’m sure I’ll eat fried foods again at some point. Booze and cheese too. But I’m in no rush.
