Okay, as with most things in my life, it started out as a good idea, Detoxing. In truth it is a good idea, in reality it is REALLY hard work. I am afraid my dedication is wavering, or at least modifying.
I made is 46hours until no caffeine about did me in. My legs were so heavy I thought I would drop through the floor. Yuck! So I made a beeline for the coffee shop and my Sugar-Free, Non-fat, 90cal Choc/Rasp Mocha, Iced. HEAVEN!! In a moment of clear, caffeinated, rational thought I arrived at the junction of the road I was on. I could chuck it and quit. I could get back on the horse and ride a straight line in a saddle that just was not comfortable. I could modify the plan, make it work for me, and keep trying to do better. Well option 3 of course.
So now my food comes in at least 5 colors, everyday. Every meal has whole grains and veggies and fruits. Protein comes in Adzuki beans, protein powder [vegan friendly], other legumes and occasionally chicken, fish, turkey, lamb[all meats organic]. I bow to my weaknesses and have my mocha. 1 cup of nf milk can't be that bad for me. I have switched to a "Green Food" Multi, that also has all my antioxidants and omega-3s. I am best friends with my juicer and my immersion blender. To aid in detoxing I use the steam room and sauna after working out at the gym - there is something to be said for sweating things out of your system. Oh and my water. I have to admit if I asked I am perpetually water logged these days. Talk about a system flush.
Well, a girl has gotta do what a girl has gotta do. And I am a work in progress. Three cheers for progress, more later.
