Yes, food. It is consuming our life right now. For the first time in a long time it has been in a positive way. We are on Day 5 of our Ultimate Reset and it is all about food. Yes, there are supplements that you have to take and time them when you take them. But the focus is food. Healthy choices. Healthy meals. Thinking outside the box of what we have been eating.
It takes a lot of preparation and dedication....maybe even more so then what I originally thought. But for the most part the food has not been that bad....with the exception of one Failed meal that I care to never revisit again.
I was extremely nervous about the withdraw symptoms. I was expecting headaches. I did encounter headaches, but the worst has been a radiating hip joint and back pain. I find it annoying but at the same time fascinating that eliminating food from my diet has caused this pain of withdraw.
It has made me think about what I have been eating, when I have been eating and why I have been eating. It has been a reality check of sorts. Yes, there are things I definitely miss right now, and I am not sure I will never revisit those things again, but it will be in moderation. Coffee and cheese are what I am missing and craving most. Strange the things that you thought your would miss turn out to be completely different.
So I am continuing on this journey for at least 16 more days. I do not know what will happen when it is over. I do not want to make false promises to myself, but right now I feel like I am setting myself up for better food choices when this journey ends. I do not foresee myself becoming a full time vegan, but I do see myself incorporating some of the vegan life into our life. It is an experience and challenge that I have decided to pursue for at least 16 more days....and who knows how much longer, that will be determined later. Right now I can just focus on Day 5.
