There are three days left to this detox- and to be totally honest, I don’t think going three days on, one day off is truly “detoxing”. I’m still taking the supplements, and have been cutting down my sugar by quite a bit, but I’m not sure what I’ve been doing the last 9 days counts as truly detoxing.
Oh well! You win some, you lose some!
I went for my 1h30 run this morning with a girlfriend who’s also on the cleanse. She drank wine last night, I had sushi- Friday night she ate a burger, I had some artisan pizza with some chocolate ice cream and wine- my life won, the detox lost, but what can you do?!
Today is also Sunday- which in my mind has always been treat day- we just have yummy dinners and no schedules- which means grazing all day.. and what did grazing all day look like for Adrien?
Egg white (with 1 whole egg) and bean scramble for breakfast with her cornthin chip things and salsa.
For lunch? Salad with salted dry roasted soy nuts and a simply bar
Snack? Cookies! (to go with my homework, of course)
Dinner? BBQ chicken, leek/carrot slaw, green salad and chocolate cookies with strawberries and ice cream- because what’s a Sunday without dessert?! No Sunday at all.
Part of being healthy, is also being balanced. Yes, I want to drop my sugar consumption way down, but I also want to live my life and enjoy meals with friends and family. Two “crazy” dinners a week won’t kill me, especially when I eat so well the rest of the time, so what do I do at this point in my detox?
Get back on the horse tomorrow! I have three days left- I’ve gotta get off this thing with a bang!
Have you ever done a detox and made it all the way through? It seems like a good idea for the first few days- but as I sit here on Day 9, I’m questioning it- I will finish it though (if people still count it as being done!)
