5:50 a.m. – Use brand new just-arrived-yesterday juicer in bathroom as to not wake sleeping son. Am impressed. Juicer rocks! Shove in an apple (whole), 5 carrots pulled in the dark and rain from the garden last night (I’ve GOT to remember to prepare before it gets dark!), a beet (there is now a red stain on my bedroom carpet from transferring machine back to kitchen), and some mint (also gathered in the rain and dark). Drink. Almost enjoy. Needs sugar.
6:30 a.m. – Protein too low at last plasma draw. Go to work 45 minutes early. Contemplate napping at desk, but decide to work instead. Must eat lots of protein in next two days before redraw so I can keep giving. Need Galveston money. Plan on soy beans, protein powder and nuts. Might have to break cleanse and eat some chicken. Oh, darn.
Update: Rouge bit of breakfast shrapnel from Day Onehas been removed. No invasive action was necessary. It was scared into submission and traveled down my throat on its own during the night.
8:00 a.m. – Getting pretty hungry.
8:12 a.m. – Told of doughnuts in the break room. Do not get up. I repeat: Do NOT get up.
8:24 a.m. – Beet burp. Eww.
8:30 a.m. – Daycare calls. Riley’s puking his guts out. Go get him.
9:30 a.m. – Starving. Drink half a mango coconut water smoothie. Pretty good except for the protein powder I dumped in it.
9:31 a.m. -Choke on bit of cayenne pepper from smoothie that hit the back of my throat wrong.
9:52 a.m. – Drink rest of smoothie.
10:15 a.m. – Clean up Riley puke.
11:00-11:45 am. – Eat lunch while butchering a butternut squash for supper. Lunch was julienne apple, radishes (which I don’t really care for), raw sweet potato (still think this is weird), celery (didn’t add. hate the stuff.), ginger, scallions and olive oil/lemon sauce, which I am growing fond off. But geez on the ginger already! Half the stuff I make calls for it. I didn’t really care for lunch. So excited I have another meal of it coming…
12:00 p.m. – Eat dried fruit and nuts. Pretend lunch didn’t cut it.
2:30 p.m. Eat 2/3 family sized bag of soy beans. Been addicted for a couple months now. They steam in 3 minutes and are delicious. Go back to work when hubby gets home.
5:30 p.m. – Eat 2 servings of yummy butternut squash soup. Go get medicine for Riley that I forgot the 2nd time I was in town. Bad mom.
6:30 p.m. – Gave husband supper suggestions. Even though the fridge is full, the counter is covered in produce and the pantry is stuffed, “There is nothing to eat”. Get hungry giving him suggestions.
8:15 p.m. – Ate one of Riley’s cheese crackers that he didn’t eat instead of putting it in a baggie with the others. It was SO good.
8:30 p.m. – Ate half a banana and 5 strawberries.
9:30 p.m. – Lemon and honey water.
10:30 p.m. – Ate another of the cheese crackers.
10:31 p.m. - Ate another of the cheese crackers.
10:32 p.m. - Ate another of the cheese crackers.
10:33 p.m. - Ate last of the cheese crackers. And loved it. Read zombie book in bed and went to sleep before I could eat anything else.
