who's your edamame? (or 42 days left)
today i had some green juice, apple juice and pomegranate juice. in addition i ate the cucumber slices from a friend's subway sandwich and another order of edamame. i can't get enough of it! i guess i feel like if soybeans are what keep me from going totally off the rails, then i'm going to eat soybeans. i do like how much protein they have. plus they are fun to eat. i don't know if eating some beans every day can derail the juice diet or not. if anyone has any insight on this, please comment or email me. i drank some tea this evening, and as soon as i have the currently washing clothes into the dryer, i'm going to bed. otherwise there's still a chance i could crack.
i'd give anything not to have gone to NYC. i was in a great place mentally with all of this before i left, and now i'm a basket case. getting back on the diet = so much harder than starting the diet. i'm not sure if it's the food that made me crazy, as in physiologically, or if this is all mental.
oh, i weighed this morning and gained 1.8 pounds this week. not TERRIBLE but i feel like i also need to count the 4 pounds i didn't lose, which i almost surely would have had i not lost control. so it's kind of a net gain of 6 pounds in my mind. unless i lose 10 pounds this week (i won't), then last week was a complete setback.
i need strength. sigh.
