Falling off the Wagon and Letting Go

Ok, I have a confession to make…. I fell off the 7 Day Detox wagon hardcore. I’m going to continue to do raw days , maybe 2 at a time with breaks in between. I did really well from Sunday night 6pm until last night 6pm, then it all went downhill from there. I was on the way to the nursing home to see mom, hungry as heck, then I thought to myself, “This is ridiculous!”. So off to Panda express I went, but I did good (considering it was cooked). I got mixed veggies as a side, string bean chicken and mandarin chicken for entres. However, I can’t totally give my self a pat on the back… I made a snack stop at Target and got me some Blue Corn Tortilla Chips, Organic Salsa and Macademia Nut Corn Clusters. I know, I know…

So I arrive at the nursing home, feeling stuffed from all my newly bought treats. Moments later, I was told that one of my mom’s roommates at the nursing home decided to have doctors take her off the ventilator. She was the only resident, aside from my mom, that I got close to since I used to call her sons for her all the time. The news of this hit me pretty hard, and I was up late munching… I am such an emotional eater. But as sad as it made me, I totally understand why she would decide to let go. She was suffering a lot and to make it worse, she was completely aware and lucid. There’s only so much a person can go through. I don’t know if she’s still here, but I plan on calling her sons to find out later today. 🙁

Well, I better get going. I’m taking a break from the detox today, but will try again tomorrow. Have a blessed day and try to stay in the present.
