Recap of Day 4: Hands down easiest day of the week to date. My mindset seemed different. Not obsessing over what it was that I couldn’t have instead focusing on why I’m doing this crazy thing: I need to feel better.
Let’s talk about hemp milk for a second. On first taste it was *earthy* and I wasn’t sure if the day would be successful or not. But I made a frozen banana smoothie (sprinkled with some ground cinnamon) and it was pretty great.
The girls and I were up and about around 8:30 per the usual and started the day with a hike. I was out of my environment so wasn’t exactly sure what I was getting us into when we went to the state park a few minutes from Jen and Wayne’s. We hiked the trail for about an hour which I guestimate was about 3 miles.
4 down. 3 to go.
Today is Day 5: Protein and Tomato
I’m really worried about this day. I loathe tomatoes. L-O-A-T-H-E them. I can only eat them as a processed product (i.e. Ketchup, pasta sauce, pizza sauce). In recent years I started adding canned, flavored, diced tomato to pasta instead of drenching it in tomato sauce but every time I chomp down on a squishy tomato bite inwardly I shiver and gag. Outwardly I pretend I’m enjoying myself because I once got backhanded for actually gagging at the dinner table when my dad made me eat a tomato after I said I hated them taste unknown.
But my plan is to hide them. I got some cherry tomatoes to bury in a frittata and then later mix some in with some turkey sausage.
It’s just one day.
Just one day.
