Juice fasting/cleanse day five!
Friday, July 15, 2016
Today was another happy one for me. First off, I went to HR at work and signed up for the healthy steps incentives. Now whenever I make progress I just have to show up, get weighed by the benefits coordinator, and get paid $10 for every five pounds lost. This couldn't have come at a better time for me. I took this job mostly as a potential career path and for the benefits but this place has gone far beyond anything I have ever heard of as far as taking care of their employees and really keeping morale high.
Also, I've noticed that my food cravings are starting to change. Don't get me wrong, I still want a good cheesy slice of costco pizza or two, but for the most part they aren't that. I want things like a whole grain pasta salad with broccoli, avocado, peppers, and other veggie deliciousness. I want steamed potatoes topped with garlic and olive oil. I want strawberries, topped with freshly ground mint leaves. I want a fresh spinach salad mixed with mandarin oranges and grapefruit. I want a homemade garden fresh salsa and avocados on top of grilled tilapia. I want real food. I know I'm not ready to get back to it though. I still out of habit reach for impulse buys at the grocery store like starbucks ready made coffees. That tells me that I can't end now. Besides, the plan was 30 days. I'll break these habits yet. In the meantime, I'll be filing these ideas away for later.
