Soon enough, I needed to find ways of releasing all that extra energy the Reboot was producing in me. That meant I felt like exercising, and I went on even more long walks around the city. The hunger had left me, and yet my taste buds were coming to life in appreciation of the natural flavors in the various fruits and vegetables I was ingesting through my juice.
I indulged in more than a little-window shopping in New York City, the home of the hamburger and the heart of pizza country (sorry Chicago). I even sauntered into a pizza parlor on Astor Place in downtown Manhattan and would take a big inhale thinking: Just two weeks ago I would have had two of those, and I’m not talking about two slices, I’m talking about two entire pies!
That smell of pizzas baking in the oven is almost irresistible, but walking back out into the crisp autumn air, I felt somehow satisfied with just taking a long whif.
Wow, I impressed myself!
If you’ve been on a Reboot for 15 days or more how were you feeling? Was it similar to my experience? I’m sharing these thoughts with you as part of the 2nd Anniversary celebration of Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead so I hope you are either able to relate or be inspired by my journal entries.
