Day Two - Yesterday was not such a good day
I'm just taking it one day at a time, and with each passing day I'm getting a little bit better about my committment.

I should have known that that it was not going to be an ideal day when I forgot to drink my tea the night before. I woke up late so I opted to have a cup of tea instead of doing the SWF. I made enough lemonade for 10 glasses, with the goal of drinking at least 8 or 9. The nalgene bottle does bother me, I'm not sure why I haven't thrown it out. It's just that a day or two after I bought it that big study came out about the leaching toxins and I hadn't even used it. I've only since used it 2 or 3 times. I immediately threw out my kids' plastic water bottles and replaced them with Kleen Kanteen stainless steel bottles. Now I need to get one for myself.
After checking to make sure that the lemon juice wouldn't react with stainless steel, I grabbed two of my kids' bottles and filled a 40 oz. one with lemonade, and a 27 oz. one with spring water. The cup that I had poured to drink while still at home ended up going in the car with me, and half way to work I realized that I had put in less than half of maple syrup in the whole mixture. Not the easiest stuff to get down. I was starving, so of course when I happened past the office kitchen cinnamon raisin bagels were sitting on the counter. Without even thinking I grabbed one and had eaten a couple of bites before I realized that I was supposed to be fasting. I did throw the rest of the bagel away but not without thinking what a waste.
At 1:30 I was able to run out to the nearby MOMs (My Organic Market)and buy a bottle of maple syrup. I also bought some RealSalt (thanks to the MC Support board. On previous attempts I had used another commercial brand that I know see was more refined. This weekend I plan to pick up some Celtic Salt.) Although I was able to "fix" the lemonade I had at work, I never quite made it through the whole bottle. I don't think I had more than 5 glasses over the course of the whole day. I ended the day with a cup of tea and a glass of water.
Ok, now for my admission. Yesterday evening I also had at least two handfuls of barbecue Fritos. I love those things and haven't had them in years, but wouldn't you know someone in my house had bought some and left them on the kitchen counter. I was starving but just couldn't bring myself to drink more lemonade, so I snacked. So you may be thinking to yourself, "geez, why does she even bother?" Well, let me just say that, as I have previously admitted, I have very little will power, especially when it comes to food. But yesterday I did refrain from the macaroni and cheese, broccoli, and fresh corn on the cob that my parents offered for dinner. If you only knew how good my mother's mac and cheese is you would understand how difficult that is to pass up. And I love fresh corn. But not even a taste, so that's progress. I'm just taking it one day at a time, and with each passing day I'm getting a little bit better about my committment.
