Okay, so some of you may have read about my "oops" incident that happened yesterday (no, not a BM accident lol) I had eaten some food yesterday and was very disappointed that I did as I planned to go 21 days (3 weeks)
Okay, so I just had a few teaspoons of potato omelette, but I really just wanted to taste it so bad. I really really missed food, and if I knew I was going to cave, then I would have made day 10 my last day, but I couldn't resist temptation.
I'm not saying that anyone should break the fast, but I'm glad I ate, and I'm glad I ate what I ate. I didn't bond with the food the way I anticipated I would when my cleanse was done. It did taste good, but not good enough to be worth jeopardizing something so beneficial to me, and to be honest, tasting it made me feel like that was definately NOT the food I want to ingest when I start eating again. NO NO NO. LOL!
So for the last 11 days, I fantasized about food day and night, about junk and things such as the omelette I tasted. However, today I wake up and think. I don't even need that kind of junk, let alone food itself right now, I'm so good with just my lemonade (which I craved so badly today, the irony is impeccable lol). I feel like that little binge, was enough to set me soaring into the next couple weeks. Now I know, I didn't miss food as much as I thought I did.
I think anyone who has quit smoking knows what I'm talking about. You know, when you've quit for several months, and you miss it so badly and one day you are out and you light one up after all that time, and you gag,choke, cough--you realize how gross it is and why you gave it up, and that one cigarette was enough to get you to really see the importance of why you quit. Well that's exactly what my omelette situation was all about.
I guess I found something positive about it all, and to those of you who are struggling with hanging on, please please don't give up! You have no idea how wonderful this is for you and as I've passed the minimum day mark already, I can also tell you that I have never felt so naturally wonderful in my life as I did on this cleanse!
Thanks everyone for hearing me out! Sorry to blab, I just thought I'd share my situation in hopes that people will be inspired to carry on!
