Day 6: Utter Failure


I did not do well today, and I’m expecting tomorrow to not go so well, either (at least the weigh in part). I also spent $200 at Whole Foods buying crap to make four (4!) recipes from Thrive, so I’m a little pissed about that. Not to mention that I made the first recipe, and it’s kind of awful.

As it turns out, after an hour of confusion in the grocery store, buying all kinds of weird shit that I never buy (black strap molasses, sunflower seeds, hemp seeds, stevia powder, various kinds of seaweed, etc.), I still managed to miss at least one important ingredient from each recipe.

The big mystery (and biggest irritation) of the night it that I couldn’t find the ginger roots, and ended up buying some other thing that looks exactly like ginger, but tasteless. Any clues? I threw it away, but my luck it’s probably this uber-expensive miracle root that makes you lose 20 lbs in one bite. Lol.

Anyway, I’m not actually mad or even that disappointed. Just exhausted, and ready for this week to be over. Tomorrow I’ll dust myself off and try again…

    Whole Paycheck, you mean. 🙂 That’s what a pal of mine calls it.

    You can do this!

      I think I might start calling it that, too! Thanks – last night I made cereal (this nutty kind of granola-y mix, but without oats), and though it’s not my cuppa, and was missing some ingredients, it’s not too bad. Gonna keep going…
