I just woke from an afternoon nap where I was jumping into trains filled with food.
Just before napping I was writing in my food intake journal. I write down everything I eat during the day. Eating very healthy, no snacks, no soda’s, no bread, lots of fruit and fresh veggies.
I have lost, are you ready? One pound!!!!
I went to pour myself a glass of the fresh green tea concoction I made yesterday.
I did not have my glasses on. I was so thirsty.
I poured my glass, added ice and took a huge swallow.
I nearly choked not comprehending why it tastes so horrible.
I reached into the fridge to get the full gallon out. Just before I poured it down the drain I tasted it.
It was wonderful.
That’s when the realization hit me that the glass I had poured the tea into the first time had about 3/4 of sea salt in it that I had been using for my cold with my Netipot.
Tea and sea salt is not a good taste sensation.
