Hey everyone!

So its been a loooooong while since I’ve written on here it seems like but in all honesty blogging just hasn’t been a priority for me lately.

While I was in Denver, I had a BLAST!!!, but I also had a lot of bad foods for me…I had declared it vacation-cheat week (even though it was only 3 days).  On Sunday when I was finally back in denton, I woke up and ate a bowl of oats and some Barney butter (all i had at the house) and for the rest of the day I was sick.

The reason?  I’m guessing my body had become so accustomed to eating organic, and for the most part raw foods that as soon as I went crazy (almost every single meal) it really messed up my digestive system.

I turned to my favorite nutritionist besides Ellie Krieger, Gillian Mckeefe, and I consulted her website (I’m waiting on her books that I bought to arrive in the mail) for the first week of this detox.  The thing I LOVE about her is she is not only about eating LOTS raw foods and eating often but also sweating out the toxins from the body as well….which is awesome because I don’t know if I could go a full 3 weeks without working out….NEG-A-TIVE!!!

So, in conclusion I have here for ya pictures of my first 2 days of the detox…(my first 2 meals weren’t pictured b/c I got used to not taking pictures of everything while I was on SB)

Day 1

7:15am- Yogi Detox tea and hot H2O with lemon

7:30am- Pilates abs/back DVD

8:15am- Mango Madness Smoothie

1 mango

1 banana (medium-ish)

5 strawberries

blend it all up and viola!

10:30am: 1 cucumber, 2 celery stalks, 2 carrots, 1 tbsp spirulina juice….actually was pretty good!

12 (NOON): 20 min walk to class

12:30: Heap of Spinach leaves, organic tuna, 6 cherry tomatoes, 1/4 lemon

MID AFTERNOON SNACK: i didn’t have time to pack 😦 no juicy juice for me

6:20: Spin Class

7:30pm: “Baked apple” with organic hazelnuts, organic raisins, and Barney butter

I was super full all day….I think a lot of it has to do with just being full still from the week of lots of eating but I definitely start to feel refreshed yesterday morning

Day 2

7:15am: Yogi Tea and hot H2O with lemon

7:30am: meditate

8:15am: Mango madness Smoothie + pineapple chunks and Spirulina

All together now…

I then got my juice prepared and cleaned up a little before heading to my yoga class at 11:30-12:30pm

I had a Veggie/Apple Juice afterwards: 1 cucumber, 2 celery stalks, 2 carrots, 1 medium braeburn apple

After class I ran 2 miles, then headed to the pool for some sunshine!!

After the pool I was STARVING (I needed to eat more, I know, but I seriously was far from hungry all day still!!)

6pm: Gillian Mckeefe’s Shepherds Pie

the only thing I changed about the recipe is I forgot to put in the butternut squash, and I added Chia seeds to the sweet potato mash

and had some Zico with it b/c my foot kept cramping up hardcore during my yoga class

6:45pm: …and a spoonful of barney butter makes the Shepherds Pie go down, Shepherds pie go Doooowwn, Shepherds Pie go down…..

after eating the AB, I then rushed off to coaching, and then had to take care of a lot of things afterwards so it was a LATE night for me 😦

How I feel so far during the detox:  I feel really good right now, Its nice to eat fresh food again, and honestly Gillian hasn’t provided a recipe that I don’t enjoy.  I am full all the time (especially that veggie juice, it’ll fill ya right up!) but not stuffed either, and I actually have more energy throughout the day to complete everything I need to complete while still being able to workout as well….SO FAR ITS GREAT!!!!

Have you ever detoxed?  When you detoxed did you juice fast?  did you follow a raw food plan like me? or did you do something else?

Have a Great day!!

i have not, and i don’t’ know if i ever will. i guess if you call eating healthier after eating not so healthy a detox, then i have, but that’s about as far as i can let myself at this point. i find that if i restrict too much or have to follow a “plan” i get really obsessive about it, so i just don’t let myself in order to stay sane! love you! miss you!

Sounds like a great detox! I’ve definitely tried a few myself– a 30-day all raw detox, the Clean Program, and a few juice fasts! Raw food and juicing is definitely the way to go– I felt great! 😀

Look forward to hearing how the rest of it goes!

I absolutely love tuna and oats with bananas! And I really like drinking tea but the idea of drinking hot water with lemon sounds really interesting too 🙂 I might have to try it!
