Start of 2nd week
This morning the scale was good to me! I am down 7.8 Lbs in 1 week!
Yesterday I was feeling fantastic but, all of the sudden, last night while standing at the kitchen sink, I got dizzy, light-headed, and those fever chills one gets. I took a nice hot bath but I didn't feel much better. I got stuffed up and a sore throat and a cough so I did break down finally at 1:30a I took some benedryl so that I could sleep. I wish I had just trusted the detox process as I am sitting here in a after-benedryl haze feeling yucky. I guess with all this weight loss, my body found a new batch of toxins in the next level of fat.
I am tired, drained and hazy but more from the medicine than anything.
The blender was in the dishwasher so I had half a pineapple for breakfast. I will probably be having a heaping Tablespoon of raw cashew butter in a moment. I only have 2 or 3 of these daily and because the nuts are so expensive I am really sparing on that so mostly it is just fruits and veggies.
I went to the Common Market yesterday and got the ingredients for the fudge balls and I will make those later. I have, in the past, had an allergic type reaction to walnuts so I substituted peacans instead. The only carob powder they had was roasted but I got it anyway. I will have to track down a raw version of this via the internet I think.
I stalked up on Bragg and Namu Shoyu, plus I found cold-pressed olive oil at Sam's Club for $8.88 yesterday - so much cheaper than what I had seen online!
