As the minutes tick toward midnight, Day 6, the final day of the cleanse with Gina Caputo, is coming to an end. She was generous enough to send us daily roadmaps with menus, meditations, and yoga practice suggestions. She also kept us communicating on Facebook for support. If you're interested in participating, she'll host another cleanse in the spring. Find her on Facebook for updates. It's all free!
Today was a little bit tough because Sophia had the day off school. She had nachos for lunch with chips, beans, cheese, and tomatoes. My grilled veggies paled in comparison. But, since we were both home and not running off anywhere, we tackled the high maintenance fruit and had fresh coconut, mango, and pomegranate for a snack.
Then, we rushed off to a promotion party. I grabbed a to-go cup my leftover breakfast smoothie as an afterthought. Good thing! The menu was some kind of meat with a white roll, baked beans, mayonnaise-laden salads, chips, and cake. I would have struggled on a normal day.
- I don't need to eat while working on the computer. My brain functions without being fed constantly.
- Planning ahead is crucial.
- There are bad choices everywhere. It would be great to get healthy food and drinks on the go, but it is rare to find something here in small-town Kansas. If I want it, I'm probably going to have to make it and take it.
- I just want to be able to eat at the party too!
