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.
