So far it's a challenge

So far itís been a bit of a challenge. I did great for the first 3 days. But today itís hard.
After making the kids breakfast I poured myself a bowl of cereal. I was so tired (hadnít woken up completely yet) and I found myself eating cereal instead of having fruit like I normally would. Whatís worse, the cereal had cows milk.
My belly has not forgiven me almost all day. I donít feel well. I had an apple for lunch. I was going to have some of this broccoli quiche (raw naturally) I made up last night but my belly was really bothering me.
I keep on craving bread now. I want to eat bread. Iím going to make some raw apple cinnamon bread tonight to have tomorrow morning but I want bread now. And not raw bread either. I want to have a bagel with creame cheese.
How messed up is that? I canít believe I want to eat something so unhealthy. Iíve been working a lot on changing the way I think about food. And today is the reason why. When I think of food as being fuel for the body I donít eat as much junk. I eat the foods that I know will fuel it best. Like putting in high performance gasoline into a good car.
And whatís worse? Iím eating dinner at my momís tonight. Spaghetti and Meatballs is what she said sheís going to make. My sonís favorite. I used to be able to eat like 10 of her meatballs in one sitting, theyíre that good. I havenít had them since I stopped eating meat (well, at least beef) earlier this year.
Iím going to bring the broccoli quieche. I would rather make lettuce wraps but Iím unsure as to if I want those or the broccoli. I could do bothÖperhaps I will!
I hope my mom isnít offended.
