I feel like life smiled at me today after my little – let’s call it a slight unsteadiness of motivation yesterday. Detox-day 3 wasn’t too bad actually! 100 gram of Serrano ham provided a piece of heaven for me and made me the happiest, most grateful woman in Western Europe at around dinnertime.
Thank God, I’m a morning person, so the cup of coffee with a sip of low-fat milk and the plain whole-grain roll were quite alright with me again. I also wasn’t tortured by a headache anymore and lunch was in fact something to look forward to today: I had a leaf salad with balsamic vinegar, a tin of tuna without any oil of course, two hard boiled eggs and another whole-grain roll. I’m not so much into tuna, to be honest, but who wants to be fussy? Two rolls in one day! A whole tin of tuna! I am still celebrating inside! To sum up lunch: I was full, I felt a strong tendency towards euphoria, in short: I was a happy little detoxer. The only things bothering me today were tiredness accompanied by an ongoing low level of energy. I guess that’s my body crying for carbs, but I am not giving in yet!
Let me tell you about drinks: In my pre-detox-life I used to drink all kinds of teas with and without milk, smoothies, juices and sparkling water – now it’s 2 to 3 liters of still water and a cup of stinging-nettle tea. The first tea I ever bought, that promotes itself with “herbal medicine tea to purge the urinary passage” on the package! Let’s dwell on that for a second – and leave it at that. But guess what? It tastes like grass. And guess what else? I find myself liking grass! At least it has a taste, which is good. Still water however – not so good. Also my job description practically shifted from active work to active detoxification: I spend my 8 hours at the office strolling between the ladies room and my desk, doing more kilometers than on my way to work and back.
The evening absolutely made my day though. I was at the movies with a friend and had saved the best for last. Instead of munching on popcorn or nachos I spent at least 30 minutes on biting off teeny tiny bits of my generous 100 gram of Spanish Serrano ham followed by two ripe, sweet tomatoes. I missed half of the movie reveling on the aftertaste and thinking about the upcoming carb-festival tomorrow! People… there are potatoes on the detox-horizon! As many as I want! Real potatoes! I can’t wait! That’s all for today, nothing left to do except of going to bed and dreaming of potatoes. Unbelievable. Real potatoes. To be continued…
