Detox, days 28 & 29: bread recovery continues


First social gathering while on the detox was yesterday, and it was a big ol' barbecue that was laden with all kinds of forbidden foods. ;)  I brought homemade deviled eggs (used olive oil instead of mayo and it worked well!), and carrots and cucumbers and zucchini - but I should've brought more "allowed" foods.  We each had a burger (without bun or cheese, of course), but kiddo in particular wanted EVERYTHING - and though he's not on this detox, I didn't want him to overdo it on cookies and pie and chips and such.  Husband really wanted some grilled corn, but corn is still off-limits right now.  Sitting in front of the dining table (where everyone had piled on the cookies and sweets) was really unpleasant, frankly.  Very demotivating.

And my intestinal woes continue - mostly cramping at this point, but still not back to normal.  I'm also ridiculously tired and worn-out.  Honestly, I am completely over this whole detox right now and just really want to be done.  I'm so tired of not enjoying what I'm eating, and not being able to eat more things.  When I'm not feeling well - over these past 3 days in particular - I am truly and deeply craving comfort foods and they're all forbidden.

Recovering from this bread failure really sucks because it's also pushing out this detox another two days.  I'm supposed to re-try any failures at the end of the reintroductions, but I have a very physically intense weekend shortly after our last scheduled reintroduction, so there's no way I am going to be able to do it then.  Oy!  Gotta stop focusing on that far off though - it's not helping my mental state right now.

The one up-side to all of this: I weighed 48.8 pounds less this year than I did on the 4th of July last year. ;)
