Well, I made it through Monday, thanks to that massive food organization project I undertook Sunday night. I am now convinced that Tuesday through Friday will work out just fine. In just three days, I've gone from a fear of constant hunger through a fog of laborious details to believing that this program is actually possible. While my mind was doing three days of the aforementioned gymnastics, my body was just taking in its new routines.
In fact, my energy level and focus - for a Monday in particular - has been impressive. I got more done today and was happier in the process than I've been in a while.
And, for those who are interested (like the three people in the kitchen at work who saw my lunch and wanted the recipe for my curried cauliflower soup) the mushroom soup is now ready to go. I need just one more entree to make it through the week - and may use my 1/2 cup daily brown rice as the fall back, along with a pile 'o vegetables.
Three days down - 18 to go!
