 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!
