Day 46: Last Day of Detox...

Thursday, September 20, 2012

Hooray! I made it through my detox without dying...or killing anyone else! I decided that in order to keep my motivation going for the days following the detox, I need to remember my accomplishments this week. If I can do it on the detox, I can do it off the detox!

1. I resisted eating a very yummy looking chocolate cheese cake that one of my coworkers brought in for a pot luck on Monday. And believe me, I was REALLY agitated that I couldn't have a piece when my co-workers were talking about how good it was. That took A LOT of will power.

2. At the aforementioned potluck, I managed to only eat detox friendly food...chicken and veggies...while everyone else was eating tacos, fajitas, sour cream, chips, queso...again, really frustrating, but I lived!

3. I cooked at least once EVERY DAY of the detox. Those of you that know me, know that I don't cook, so this was a challenge, but a fun one!

4. I didn't snack on the abundance of candy that is usually making it's way through our office.

5. I managed to get a little bit of exercise each day, no matter how tired I was.

There are a billion more things I could write down, but these are what I consider to be my major accomplishments of the week. Again, if I can do this during my detox, what is stopping me from doing it on a consistent basis? Absolutely nothing!

    Wow, it sounds like you had a great week. The detox really worked for you. You are right, you rose to all the challenges that you faced while on the detox and it should be easier to do this on "ordinary" days. Awesome! emoticon
