You're probably wondering why I'm titling this "Sushi," aren't you?? Allow me to explain:
So earlier this week was my mother's birthday. After work, my father and I decided to take her out to dinner to one of her favorite restaurants, Wasabi, which is a great little Japanese restaurant. They have sushi that is fantastic. And not only is is fantastic, but it's super fresh. So fresh, as a matter of fact, that it leapt straight off the table into my mouth.
Yes. My name is Christiane and I ate sushi.
I enjoyed myself thoroughly and had a few sushi rolls and some steamed edamame, which is one of my favorite things of all times. And although I did feel a slight twing of guilt, the pleasure of eating again was much greater.
But then it all took a turn downhill and I just couldn't bear to go back to the regimen again. So I didn't. I made it through 10 instead of the original 14 days. And I'm okay with that.
This year was a much different experience than last year. Last year, it was extremely tough to do it, but I noticed benefits almost immediately and that helped spur me on. This year, I didn't so much. I felt great as I was doing it, but there wasn't much weight loss to speak of, which made it tough to continue doing it.
So the Great Detox of 2008 is at a close, albeit a few days short of its intended completion date. Maybe next year....
