Sugar Free Vegan Series (5/31) – THE RETURN!!

I know I disappeared for two days, but it was for the best. Between work stress and lack of sleep my brain stopped working properly and it’s been two days of constant car alarms in my head. That’s no fun to read.

Now I’ve had a good night’s sleep and I feel like a functioning person again.
Speaking of function (and this is the point where I advise the squeamish among you to skip the next three paragraphs) my bowels are a battle field.
Have you ever made changes to your diet and it had… effects? There’s a certain… acceleration in proceedings between stomach and …the exit? Sorry to go there, but it’s foremost on my mind today.
I’m hoping it’ll clear up quickly. I got through the headaches I’ll get through this. Not as quickly as my food gets through me. Ba-dum-tish
I think the sugar detox that is progressing head down. It started with headaches, next was a face full of zits, followed by shaking hands (though that might be caused by lack of sleep. I can’t be sure since I’m lacking a control group) and now it’s my digestion.
If things continue along these lines it’ll hit my knees by Monday.
Yesterday I was close to throwing in the towel. With everything that was going on at work, it felt overwhelming to deal with a fairly restrictive change in diet as well.
Just then my mother -who is either psychic or the head of a sophisticated surveillance network- came to the rescue. Because she knows me better than I know myself, she sensed I was struggling and decided to give me an early Christmas present.
I am now the proud owner of a brand new juicer. It’s beautiful and I love it so much.
Today I had a cucumber, apple and ginger juice for breakfast and a carrot cucumber celery juice for lunch.
Chewing is for suckers.
The lack of solids also seems to help with the other issue.
On the other hand the apples in my breakfast juice pushed my sugar intake up a bit to 33 gram. According to the app anyways.
Much, much better than giving up and falling face first into a pile of truffles anyways.
