I've also had a mild headache for a day or two. A friend says that some people have withdrawal symptoms when they go vegan, both due to the addictive properties of dairy and because your body is detoxing. I totally believe that. I have them every year during Passover when I stop eating carbs for a week. I know this feeling will pass (and exercise has helped) but still...it's icky.
After lunch we had a cake for my co-worker's birthday. It was a mango mousse over lady fingers with fruit on top. Not only could I not have the cake due to the dairy in it, it also had fresh fruit on top covered in gelatin to keep it from oxidizing. Sad. Today was the first day where I felt like my diet was restricting me from participating in something (even though I know that's stupid--I was still there to celebrate with her!). On the plus side, I have turned down sweets a lot this week for not being vegan, which is leading to me eating a lot healthier.
Tonight I am sipping on a green smoothie. I am going to listen to some of Colleen's podcasts. This is the first day where I felt a little bit discouraged so I could use the extra support. I am looking forward to yoga tomorrow. I need to nurture myself a little bit right now.
Have a great weekend!
