I just realized that I ate vegan ALL DAY. Lord have mercy.

Day one of Operation De-Pollutination went just fine.

What I ate:
*Breakfast was a genuinely yummy blueberry-almond milk smoothie (with protein powder) . I was worried I'd be so ravenous by lunch that I'd start sneaking cat treats, but not so much. I was fine.
*My mid-morning "snack" was coconut water, something I had to go to the co-op to find. It is $5.99/liter. Ugh. But, it tastes good and it was exactly what I needed to help me make it to lunch without my belly rumbling loud enough to make my coworkers think that I'm keeping a wild boar under my desk as a pet. I predict that this will be the first thing I get sick of consuming during O.D-P (yeah, you know me). Just a hunch.
*Lunch was delicious. No, I'm not kidding. I had a salad with greens, avocado, cucumber, and a fabulous carrot/ginger dressing that I am currently in love with. I may or may not have made out with it. I may or may not have taken it out behind the middle school and got it pregnant.
*Afternoon snack: raw almonds and pepitas. I'm not much of an afternoon snacker anyways, so this was fine. Plus, I like raw almonds and pepitas, so...yeah.
*Dinner was the green soup pictured in the previous post. It was OK. Not great, but OK. I've never found broccoli soup to be anything worthy of too many descriptors anyways, so I'll just say "it filled me up" and leave it at that. Well, that and I'm a little scared of what it will look like tomorrow, you know- in the can. I promise to keep you updated.

Beyond that, I have consumed 100+ ounces of water, peed every 14 seconds, drank lemon water first thing in the morning, not been all that hungry, and I feel pretty darn good.

So far.

Let's see how I am after 5-6 days without wine.

So, kind of boring so far, but I have a feeling that things are going to start getting interesting soon. And by "interesting" I mean "hungry, poopy and strange."

Happy Monday, my soon-to-be-cleansed, adorable little digestive tracts. Happy Monday.

Poop updates, that's why I read you.

If I had to pee every fifteen seconds, I would just give up and wear some depends, and only change them at the end of the day when my ass was all huge and sloshy like Della Reese's.

I'm on a very similar diet...but I'm drinking skim milk in my coffee. I'm not detoxifying exactly...just trying not to be 5'3'' 175 pounds anymore.

Yesterday I had a small (I was afraid it was too small) wrap with alfalfa, avocado, ginger dressing and cranberries. It was so good.

Then at dinner I made veggie soup out of my own vegetable broth (my dad's a vegetarian and had it frozen) and all the kids ate it with gusto. It was almost impossible not to down four or five biscuits though.

Sound like day 1 was full of success! I too have had a summer of excess. And I have found my jeans, even my fat jeans are too tight. ugh. I even dreamed that I had ballooned up oompa loompa like last night. got to be a sign. Which cleanse are you following? Is this the Oprah lady one? Can you post a link? Wishing you luck in your cleansing endeavor, A.

BallerinaToes said...

I just saw your link in previous post to Gwennies Goop that the one you are following? Hope you don't have to have the castor oil to help with "elimination."

totally off topic, have you seen the dog food commercial with the "optimal pooper"? Cracks me up every time. I ask my pup every day if she's been an optimal pooper. And she looks at me like I'm an alien.

Christa said...

Oh my God. This is so fun to watch. Wish I had your moxie, girl. In this day and age, it is perfectly acceptable to take your camera into the bathroom, BTW. Just remind yourself that you are a blogger, and that people have a right to know where you fall on the Bristol Stool Scale.

Whiskeymarie said...

Monkey- Poop updates, that's why I blog.

notBenny- That's actually not a bad idea, considering that it's 9:30am and I've already peed three times.

erin- the small portion sizes are killing me, if that makes you feel better. Yesterday I was all, "what, that's it?" Even eith the green sludge soup.

BToes- Yup- that's the one I'm following. I've actually totally stayed on track with it too, so far. I'm hoping I don't need the castor oil either, but I did miss my morning constitutional today and I'm a little worried.
"Optimal pooper"- oh my god, I haven't seen that yet. I may have to look for it. I wouldn't say Bub's is "optimal" as much as he is "hilarious" in the poo department.

Christa- You know me, so you know how "moderation" isn't a word I'm very familiar with. This would be fun to watch. Once I eventually (hopefully) do the deed, you know I'll share.

I was doing pretty good on my diet, that is until we sat around a bonfire on Saturday night and I started toasting marshmallows...

So answer me this - If you're the type to burn a marshmallow beyond all comprehensible recognition and then eat it, is it still full of fat? Because I like to let myself believe I burned all the sugar off before I ate it... I mean them, like a dozen or more.

i will be standing by.

Gwen said...

I predict you start with the cat treats on day four.

SkylersDad said...

I am hoping we get updates (video) of the explosive pooping that occurs between day 3 and 4 of the force that lifts you off the toilet seat like the shuttle.

Stay gold, Pony boy, stay gold.... Wait, what were we talking about?

kilax said...

You're off to a good start!

Mommy Lisa said...

Seriously, love the idea of a cleanse - but seven whole DAYS without wine...

I must have been French in another life. I would not tolerate no wine!

Student/Teacher said...

You are doing it! I am jealous of your follow-through and your motivation, of which I have neither.

I type this, by the way, while drinking a homebrewed lager and eating chocolate covered almonds.

Was that mean to tell you?
