Good day apart from another brief emotional breakdown.

Today started off well. I made another new batch of juice, this time including pineapple and potato. I took an Epsom salt bath to help draw out any toxins. This left me nice and relaxed. I had a nice day at work, came home and had a bowl of veggie broth, and proceeded to have an emotional breakdown over three different misunderstandings with my boyfriend that happened over the course of a few hours. What's the worst part is that when I get emotional, he tells me to eat food.
I'm not letting this stop me from reaching my goal of 10 days. I've made it this far with only two brief emotional upsets and no other problems. I figure it's part of this cleansing, and if emotions come out, it just comes with the territory. I don't like that my emotions are being discredited as BS because I haven't eaten solid food, however. They are as real as any other feelings. I suppose I don't need to prove this to anyone, just acknowledge them and move on.
I'm really looking forward to the end of this, as I read other peoples' accounts of returning to a solid food diet after fasting. I've noticed quite a few people slip up and jump right back in by eating something heavy and even unhealthy like pizza and beer right away. I'm going to make sure I continue to exercise the control I have used so far and start slowly with steamed veggies, some brown rice, maybe some millet. I want to avoid undoing all the good I've done by completing this fast.
I was really excited to fit into another pair of skinny pants that were tucked away at the bottom of my closet for months. I really hope that fasting one day a week will help me maintain this weight.
