I've had it. I screamed today. Like, for real screamed. Every day Kyden pulls my hair out by the handful. I don't want to wear my hair in a pony-tail everyday. I already feel a little frumpy as it is lately.\ I love, love ,love my long hair. I don't want to cut it off this time. My goal was to wear it up in cute ways more often (of course ideas from pinterest are involved). And I certainly have done that some, but most of the updo's look cutest when curled first, and these days a straightner is the quickest easiest thing for my super long hair. I feel like Rachel off of Friends with her super duper long sleek hair. I love it. But I think I've had it. I'm afraid I'm going to have to chop. But I soooooo don't wanna. *tear.
Shannon: "We're the healthiest eaters I know. Why are we doing this?"
You know. His quote is really getting to me today. I think he's right. We don't do processed foods. We heavily eat fruits and vegetables and take 'er easy on meat. I really do have a healthy lifestyle. I just thought it would be nice to detox. But, today I feel not fat, not sick, but nearly dead! haha. It started yesterday but I thought it was might be because I wasn't drinking enough water (which may be part of it) but I am tired of feeling weak and I often feel like blacking out. Not good. When we first started replacing breakfast and lunch with green smoothies a month ago, I could really tell the difference in my energy boost. It felt great. Today, I didn't even feel capable of exercise. I felt dizzy all day and the constant need to sit down. 2 of the detox smoothies were absolutely DISGUSTING! I actually was gagging and wanted to throw up in my mouth. It tasted like I was eating grass. Shannon was dry heaving up stairs after forcing himself to drink the last one of the day. So, as sad as it is to say that today I'm a quitter, after 4 days of nothing but largely vegetables and some fruit juicing, we are done. The funny thing is, it's not even that I feel unsatisfied or hungry. I just feel weak and my mind feels fuzzy. I definitely have zero desire to eat junk or anything sweet. I just want some almond butter with my apple. Or some grilled chicken and steamed broccoli...I think I miss chewing my food. lol
Well on the upside for Shannon, even though weight loss wasn't the goal, he lost 5 pounds in 4 days. Go Shannon! :) He still thinks 6 packs are over-rated! haha.
