Day 3 - Monday, Monday

At the start of Day 3 I felt a very slight headache coming on.  This is no surprise as my body goes through the detoxification process.  I have come to expect a headache around the second or third day of the SDC.  Hopefully I am able to keep it under control with the distractions of work this Monday morning.  From past experience I think I am in for a hellish night.  the good news is that once it passes (usually running its course in about 24 hours) I may be in the clear from further headaches for several months.  One of the benefits of having done this diet several times now (and keeping a log) is that there is a certain amount of history that continually repeats itself.  I guess the flip side to that is the fact that I continually gain my 25 pounds of weight each winter - necessitating an extreme diet to take it off.  Someday I'll figure out how to keep it off and be more disciplined.

For breakfast today I had some rice and water.  I grilled up the bones and ribs from the fish I caught yesterday and I picked off all of the meat.  I brought a container of fish and rice into work and I also picked a couple asparagus and some chard from the garden.  I have been at work nibbling on all of that stuff throughout the day.  Water to drink.  So far so good.  I should say so far so bland!  No seasonings at all.  I encourage anyone to try this small feat for even a short period of time.  You will quickly understand how trading spices overseas in ancient times was such a valued commodity. It makes such a difference in the taste of food.

I started having delusions of blue claw crabs this afternoon.  It shouldn't be too much longer until they begin to emerge from the mud.  I have a few new ideas and it's time to get prepared.  I am going to make a smaller version of my trot line so that I can use it to scout out new prospective areas for crabbing.

  1. However since they both make the grade and the Biggest Losers figure is only slightly better than that for the DASH diet, they shall be awarded even scores for this category.guarantor
