As I sit here and wait and wait and wait and wait for my weekend to actually begin, I thought I would share some thoughts with my loyal blog readers (which I’m almost certain is really only only one reader, who is actually my brother… so, so sad).
I’ve been thinking about how much food I actually pump into my system each day. And I’m not too thrilled at the thought of it! Today I ate one of those high fiber breakfast bars that supposed to keep you from getting hungry, but by 9:30 I thought I would die of starvation. Guess fiber doesn’t do the trick for me. At about 9:45 I ate (wait for it…) a piece of chocolate bundt cake. I’m not proud of it and if any of you tells my son I had cake for breakfast we will not be friends anymore. Next I had a huge cup of coffee with cream and sugar. That lasted me until I walked into McFreakinDonald’s at about noon. Double Cheeseburger and Fries, cue the Hallelujah Chorus. I love it. I know it’s horrible for you, but I L-O-V-E love McDonald’s. There’s just something about those fries… I don’t know what they do to them, but they are amazing. After the McD’s, I had a Diet Coke, but no more food, that I remember. I eyed some cookies at work, but didn’t have any. Score one for me! I’m home now and haven’t eaten anything, but that’s probably because there’s nothing here to eat.
I say all of this to say this: I’m going on a Plant Protein Detox next week. For the next week, my husband and I will have a Plant Protein Smoothie for breakfast and lunch and lean protein and vegetable for lunch. I’m not looking forward to it one tiny little bit. I love food. I love to eat. Who drinks meals? I’m confused by the whole thing, but I’m committed ($18 worth of plant protein powder committed, to be exact). I could do anything for two weeks. I lived through 14 years with Jay Thornton when we did NOT get along, to say the least. I can do this. I’ll keep you posted.
For those of you who are not drinking your meals for the next two weeks, I am still making Treats! I will hate you a little, but I will still make them for you!
