I am on the second day of a fast right now. I decided that I wanted to create better food habits for myself so I’m going to fast (doing the master cleanse) for 14 days and then start my food habits over. I have a huge sweet tooth, and whenever there is food, I always eat more than I need to be full. I get this thing in my head that if I don’t eat it and enjoy it right now, I might seriously miss out on something. So, I stuff myself a lot. I also want to start having more greens, veggies, and whole foods in our diets. Toby decided to do it with me, which is nice.
I did this once when Kaia was 2, just to have a nice cleanse after having been pregnant and breastfeeding. But, Kaia didn’t like it. She couldn’t understand why I wouldn’t eat with her. Now, she is just curious and wants to talk about foods and what makes a food a healthy food.
So far, things are good. My energy has been fine, I’m not too hungry. Although, I am craving the taste of food and the feeling of chewing.
