The SP Cleanse...

Eric and I are on a "cleansing regiment" for the next 21 days...well, I guess 20 now that day one is in the books. We eat only fruits and veggies (with tons of protein supplements and BIG capsules of stuff I don't recognize) for 11 days and then lean protein gets added in. This is supposed to make us think differently about food and what we eat. Already, I caught myself tonight about to inhale a biscuit, some of Garrett's spaghetti O's, and some chocolate chips. It's like being on autopilot. I am just so used to grazing that it felt natural. I really was caught off guard!
I thought for sure I'd be starving to death by now, but honestly, when lunch rolled around, I was full. I panicked! I called Eric right away and asked if I should have my fruit smoothie anyway. He said I should, and so I did. I also worked out with Jen this afternoon. It's getting more and more difficult to align our schedules. All these stupid meetings keep popping up out of nowhere. I detest meetings! I walked VERY briskly on the treadmill for 34 minutes and only burned 135 calories, but I did break a sweat, which is odd for me.
