Weigh In - Week 17

This was the first week following my three-day juice fast.  My body felt amazing after the fast and I was really excited to eat again!  At first I made great food choices.  I ate only fruits, veggies and juice for two days.  Then I slowly began adding nuts, seeds, dried fruits, nut milks, etc. 

Yesterday, while out and about with my family we popped into a soda fountain so that my three year old son could enjoy a chocolate ice cream treat.  (This is when making good food choices gets hard for me.)  I decided to order my most favorite thing in the whole world: a butterscotch milkshake.  Oh boy, it was yummy.  I drank about half and began to feel full and woozy.  So, I did something I've never done before - ever ever ever before - in my life EVER.  I didn't finish it.  When we left, there was still half a milk shake sitting on the table. 

Also, I went on a birth call this week.  As a doula, I spend long hours in hospitals and birth centers helping moms deliver their babies.  This time away always requires lots of energy and focus and I usually end up snacking on whatever is around.  Its usually a prime opportunity to consume junk and energy drinks and coffee drinks, etc.  This time, I drank lots of water and noshed on some raw sesame treats that I brought along.  Instead of eating lots of bad food, I simply helped my client deliver a beautiful baby boy, went home afterward to enjoy a nice raw meal in the comfort of my own home.

Pounds lost this week: 1
Total pounds lost: 32
