Fatigue! That’s my word of the day. I feel normal, just very fatigued. I’m guessing it’s a result of this detox. I spent most of my day working on different projects from home, nothing crazy. I also donated blood right after lunch. I haven’t donated blood in years, but wanted to start again because the demand is so high and I have the type (O+) that makes me a universal donor. Once the pint was drawn I felt very flushed and they had to lay me flat and put a cold cloth on my forehead and neck. Apparently this is fairly normal. After several minutes I felt better and they sent me to the snack table:
Thanks but no thanks. Next time I’ll take carrots or something.
I drank the bottle of water they provided me and went home. I intended to rest for a couple minutes but woke up two hours later when my daughter got home from school. I still couldn’t shake the fatigue. It’s 8:30 p.m. and I’m in bed writing this post. We’ll see what tomorrow brings, but I’m guessing this will pass quickly. Glad I could listen to my body and give it the rest it needs.
For breakfast (and afternoon snack) I had this delicious Apple Pie Smoothie. I doubled the recipe for me and my beloved so there was plenty for both breakfast and snack.I added a couple scoops of gelatin for extra protein and I was satiated until lunch (leftover chicken curry from last night).
For dinner I made this easy, spaghetti (zoodles) with meat sauce. I browned organic ground beef (I get the 3-pack at Costco), added the marinara sauce (it’s sugar free!) and make zucchini noodles with my spiralizer. Once the meat sauce is done I simply add the zoodles to the pot and toss to coat and then let it simmer for a couple minutes. That’s it.
The whole meal took about 15 minutes to assemble and was really tasty.
It’s 9:00 p.m. Nighty night!
