I was apprehensive about Day 4 because it was my first day back to work. (Okay, technically I don't go back until mid-August, but I have a reading workshop all week.) I was worried since I obviously wouldn't have access to a juicer from 8-4. My morning was fine. I made a carrot-apple juice for breakfast and packed a celery-cucumber juice in my 32-oz thermos, thinking that would suffice. I filled my lunchbag with ice and placed the cooler inside. I spilled some of my carrot-apple juice and my lunchbag leaked so I had to empty all the melting ice out. By lunchtime I had a raging headache and dizziness. Sipping on warm juice wasn't very appealing, especially while my colleagues were eating Chick-Fil-A and Chipotle. I should also mention that the air conditioning wasn't turned on in the classrooms. I felt weak and delirious by late afternoon.
Jesse was bright eyed and full of energy after returning to a healthy diet. He had cleaned the whole house, rearranged furniture upstairs, and ran errands while I was gone. He also fixed this delicious pizza using whole wheat crust and preservative-free marinara sauce from Trader Joes. It was topped with low-fat mozzarella and fresh tomatoes and spinach.
While he and Jack ate pizza, I sipped on hot green tea (caffeine-free sans sugar, of course).
I think I'm going to call it an early night!
