Hitting the wall on Valentine's Day?

Happy Valentine's Day!! Okay hitting the wall may be overstating it a little, but this was the first day I felt like I didn't want to keep going on the cleanse.  I don't know if it was the dreaded scale that did not go down again this morning, or the Valentine chocolate tradition dancing in my head, or the fact that this is my 25th Valentine with my Mr. Wonderful and I wouldn't be spending it in our out to a special delicious dinner tradition.
I am committed and I did not even really consider quitting, but today was tough.  After a 45 minute walk with a good friend I had hashed it all out and felt better.  I just have to succeed this time, or I feel like I might not ever.  Anybody else feel like that?  Six months from now is my birthday month, and I can reach it in victory Lord willing, or I can arrive there in defeat struggling to fight the same battle over and over and over.  I want to focus on my next choice; really that is all I NEED to focus on to succeed, BUT sometimes it helps to remind myself of the future to inspire myself to make the right choice NOW.
So instead of heading out on the town, my sweetie joined me on my cleanse meals today.  Below is what we enjoyed together along with some cashews and almonds not pictured.

Two cold berry smoothies coming right up.  I am married to Mr. Smoothie, so these he enjoys.

I grilled rosemary garlic Dijon lamb chops and asparagus.  This was our special Valentine Cleanse lunch.

My plate with brown rice and garlic quinoa.  It was licking the plate good!

Coming right up: 2 Valentine green juices, and Mr. Smoothie said....."no smoothie?" :)  The ginger in this juice gives it a bite that makes it really good.

Happy Valentines!!!  Hoping tomorrow is an easier day!!!
