I really wanted to go big for this challenge but I just couldn't get around to it. I've been tossing around doing a full on detox for awhile now especially cuz i just finished my round of antibiotics and those things are nasty to your system.
I admit that I get really confused about detoxing. There's so much information out there and strong supporters and strong opposers. There's people that say just eat more of a few certain things and then there's like $100 detox kits. I started looking into it through pinterest and there's a 7 day plan that I'd really like to do but it requires a bunch of prep so it's on hold. I think I'll wait till after my birthday next week.
So basically, all I did was be really careful not have anything processed. The only wheat I had for the day was my sprouted grain bread in the morning. And I had a nice big smoothie with chia seeds and spirulina which are supposed to be good natural detoxers and everything organic. I also tried to be conscious of drinking enough water throughout the day since I know that is one of my weaknesses. I put a glass of water next to my bed and drank it first thing in the morning and then kept drinking throughout the day, every time i thought about it. From my new water bottle that has a brita filter inside! Thats about it. I feel like I didn't put as much effort as I wanted to but it got me thinking and researching and planning which is really the overall point of the challenge I think and I definitely plan to do something more in depth really soon!
