Today is the start of something very new... very alien... to me.
Today I will begin a journey, for three weeks, into eating clean. Eating healthy.
Today I begin a three-day "detox", clearing my liver of chemicals by eating vegetables and fruit and drinking lots of water.
Today, along with the three-day detox, I being following a 21-day menu plan... a regimented menu plan.
Today I'm repeating to myself, only three days... only three weeks... out of my whole life. I CAN do this.
Today I am looking at the menu I am following and looking forward to Monday when I will be able to have protein and carbs again.
Today I may gag. A lot.
Today I have warned the people close to me to not eat pizza or fast food in the house. "Go out to eat, and don't invite me or bring home leftovers."
Today I will keep reminding myself that I am important... and doing this will be an important step toward better health.
Today I am worrying about all the things this weekend will bring to me while my body adjusts to simple organic fruits and vegetables.
Today I will have/had spinach in my morning smoothie for the very first time. I'll let you know how I felt about that later.
Today is the next Step to a better me, physically and hopefully mentally.
Today (and every day during this eating plan) I will drink half my weight in water. Trust me, that's a LOT of water!
Today I will be making many trips to the bathroom.
Today I can guarantee I'm craving peanut butter, chocolate, crackers/bread and caffeine. Not necessarily in that order. Possibly all at one time. Probably every minute that I am awake.
Today I am very scared.
Today is going to be very hard.
Today I will discover how strong I am.
Today is just the beginning. Three weeks... 21 days... is the goal.
Today is just one single day out of my whole life. I CAN DO THIS!
