Day 2 of my liquid diet and I have to disagree with who ever came up with this idea. It's not horrible as in there's no way I can do it. It is horrible in the way that I'd rather have my teeth pulled with no Novocaine and rusty dental equipment.
Thank Goodness for my mother who happened to have sugar free syrups to make this a little more interesting. So far I've been able to turn my banana shakes into 'Banana Fosters', my chocolate shakes into 'Chocolate Raspberry Truffles', and my vanilla shakes into 'Irish Cream Heaven'. Ohh don't forget my lavish chicken broth that I have seasoned with every type of salt and pepper concoction I can come up with. This coupled with long naps to combat the lack of energy I'm feeling and this short term liquid diet is totally livable. Let's just hope my sunny disposition is just as cheery this time next week.
To combat the blues and the lack of explosions on my taste buds I have made my lemon water a staple. It's half pure lemon juice, half water poured over as many ice cubes as I can fit in a 16oz tumbler. I like my lemon water. No, let me rephrase that, I LOVE my lemon water! It's such a nice pick me up.
To start my official countdown I've added a ticker tot he top of my blog. Now you can count down with my too!
Now that wasn't too bad, was it? I complained and maybe even went a little over board but nothing my favorite people couldn't handle.
