I'm still learning things from our 10 day juice cleanse. I've always known when I've been full, but if there was still food on my plate, I'd eat it. Now, I'm aware when I'm full and I stop eating. There may still be food on my plate or in my sandwich bag, but I'm OK with this. Another thing I've noticed is how I really appreciate the simplest of foods. Sunday, when we started talking about what we were going to eat on Thursday, I was planning simple lunches. The thing that stuck the deepest in my brain was peanut butter. I just wanted a simple peanut butter and banana sandwich. I'm really proud of Chris for sticking with the cleanse. And when we started talking about food he said that he wanted to be in charge of meal planning for a while. This was a relief. I feel like my plans for evening dinner have grown stale and boring and the usual. Some times, I'd plan something, but by the time I'd get home I'd be so tired that I wouldn't feel like cooking. Then, I'd feel guilty for asking Chris to make dinner (stupid). Having him take it over for a while makes me happy. So, today, I am thankful for food. I am thankful for the simplest pleasure of crunching into a celery stick and I am thankful for Chris.
We have few plans for the weekend. Saturday we will see an old HS friend and his wife for lunch (I'm actually really excited about this). We will plant fall veggies and we will rest. All things that make me thankful. Happy weekend and Thankful Friday.
