So somehow I decided I wanted to do a detox juice cycle (at the moment of writing I already have no clue anymore why on earth I would decide something crazy like that) and that 5-day cycle has just started. The idea is that you live on 5 juices every day made of pure fruits and veggies, so you have 5 days with only unprocessed food. Some of my objectives to do this were to become aware of what I normally eat (let me tell you, after 1 day I am so aware already, I am addicted to food!) and to break bad eating habits (which, let´s be honest, I have quite a few after becoming a mom). So here we are, day 1 is almost over and I am struggling! I did not expect this would be so difficult, as an illustration a quick summary of how my day went:
Detox Day 1
07.30am Breakfast! Oh wait, starting this detox juice thing today.
09.30am F**, I am hungry already
10.00am Let´s get some cookies with my tea, oh wait no, I am not eating
11.00am Snack time, can you really call it snack time when it´s a juice called the “3 musketeers”? Isn´t “snack” directly related to chocolate?
11.16am Why do these cookies keep staring at me?
11.45am Jeeeez, I want to eat something. They said I wouldn´t be hungry with this method, I am freaking hungry!
12.28am Texts friends: “Whatever we do during our date on Sunday, can we please involve food, lots of unhealthy food? Thanks!”
01.00pm Let´s grab something to eat, oh wait, nooooo. Ok lunch juice it is.
01.30pm Why is everything eatable in this house calling my name?
02.00pm Hmm even the jar of baby food looks good to me now, I want fooood
03.30pm Nobody home, shall I just eat something secretly?

07.05pm F** they didn´t have dinner yet, this is going to be nice
07.15pm That smell!
07.30pm Would it ruin the whole week if I just take one bite of their meat?
