Phase 1, Day 4 - Wednesday


Screwed up when counting the meals for today & brought one less container than needed to work. Not really a big deal, but I have felt hungrier today than previously. This could also be due to today's meals not being as filling as before. Maybe quinoa  is a better stomach filler as is, opposed to blended in a soup?

I almost skipped Taekwondo practice this evening as I was feeling weak and my stomach rumbling worryingly & I discovered a leak in one of our pool pipes that I thought I'd stay home and fix before it became dark. In the end I forced myself to go, and I'm happy I did. It’s one of those situations where not going had left me with a bad conscience while actually going made me feel proud of myself and almost and euphoric afterwards. A victory for the will!!!
