9 Day Detox

Tuesday, January 01, 2013

Today, 1/1/13, I am starting a 9 day detox. No sugar, meat, white potatoes, bread, soft drinks, caffine (well, I am going to allow myself 1 cup of coffee in the morning). I will get plenty of water, fresh fruits and veggies, nuts (in moderation) & a limited amount of dairy. I tried this detox a few weeks ago with the goal of 5 days and I made it! I noticed that during these 5 days i slept better & after the first couple of days I felt better. It is not my intention to ban these foods from my diet forever. But I will limit them and/or use sparingly. I am hoping that after achieving 9 days I will look at my food differently and make wiser decisions. I will try to post daily how my day went. The purpose in this blog is to hold myself accountable and share my experience. Wishing you a happy and healthy New Year!

I am at the start of my 3rd day. Boy am I tired. Sugar and meat are so tempting. Not sure if I'll make it the full 9 days. I may have to modify and add lean white meat back in. I don't really miss the soft drinks, so that is a plus.And I haven't been on the scales in 3 days. Let's see if I can make it the full month!

End of day4! Still no sugar, bread, soft drinks! I did add 3 oz of chicken, but only once a day. Weekends are always the hardest. Don't know how this weekend will go, but I will do my best to make healthy choices. I am craving chocolate really bad. On the bright side I am sleeping like a baby :) I have not be exercising regularly. Will start Zumba, again, next week.

    Thanks! But I must admit...I tanked it today. I still used self control though, so I am proud of that. I had some dark chocolate & 3/4 of a yeast roll. That is really awesome for me...I love bread and chocolate! No soft drinks though and still only chicken for meat.

New Year new me!

Sunday, December 30, 2012

I joined SparkPeople almost one year ago. I started strong and fizzled out. Now one year later I am right where I was. As my 42 birthday is fast approaching I realize it is now or never. I will be using tomorrow as my last splurge day and to prepare for healthier eating. On January 1st I will start a food detox it lasts 9 days. I tried it before with a goal of lasting 5 and I made it. I will try to post here daily or at least every 2-3 days. I will not be posting weight as I am swearing off scales for 1 month. I tend to focus on the amount of weight lost and not how I feel or how my clothes are fitting. I plan on incorporating exercise into my daily schedule. I even plan on starting P90X. I don't know how that will go,but I won't know until I try. My husband is suppose to join me in this experience. We will see who lasts the longest. See you in a day...or two emoticon
