Hey, it’s lucky 13.

Almost Cheated this morning.  Ok more than I usually do. Intentionally I mean.  I didn’t feel like making anything so I grabbed some pre-boiled eggs and was set to grab the regular Mayo as Nanonaise just isn’t the same.  I actually paused.  My ‘oh screw-it meter’ was kicking in as I almost reached for the other Mayonnaise in the fridge.

Sometimes it’s a battle with your own ego as it tells you to ‘give in’.  It’s like a bratty version of yourself egging you on (no pun intended) Whispering sweet nothings in your ear... “Oh it’s ok.  It’s no big deal.  It’s just a small thing. It doesn’t count. Little cheats don’t count.”

Ok little cheats shouldn’t count, but the unfortunate truth is that one step backwards becomes an ‘it’s ok habit’.  Then the ‘it’s ok habit’ turns into a 1000 little cheats which if I’ve done my math correctly = ONE WHOPPER.  So I had to pause over this minuscule little matter before it led to bigger and badder things.

p.s. the K.O. goes to me this round.  Nikki (1) Candida (0)

Pre Breakfast:

Acidophilous + Herbals

I could marry this tea!

Curried Turkey and Wild Rice Soup
Rice Chips + Bruschetta Spread

(yes Bruschetta spread has tomatoes…and that’s a no no but alas until all my tomato products from week one’s grocery spree are gone…it’s not in my nature to throw out perfectly good food.  As I see it…if this extends my cleanse while sticking to everything else I can live with that.  I’m in it for months not weeks.)
