It’s a little past midnight here in good ol’ denton, but I wanted to make sure that I updated you on how the detoxing is going since I wont get another chance to update for another day or two!
So far everything is great! I’m still loving juicing (may possibly be a new favorite hobby of mine 🙂 ), making smoothies is always a blast (especially with mango involved), and of course munching on some shepherds pie!
7:15am- Hot H20 with lemon, Yogi Tea
8:00am- 1/3 cup Quinoa Flakes + 1 tbsp Barney Butter + 1 medium organic banana, and a plate with 4 organic strawberries cut up with some frozen organic raspberries in the middle
7:15am- hot H20 with Lemon, yogi tea and green smoothie….1 mango, 4 strawberries, huge handful of spinach, pineapple, spirulina (1 tsp)
same base-1 cucumber, 2 carrots, 2 celery stalks, but instead of an apple I used a lemon….BAD IDEA ugh it tasted awful
same spinach and tuna salad (handful of spinach, 6 cherry tomatoes, 1 can organic tuna, lemon juice)…then I added quinoa flakes (1/3 cup + chia seeds)….this did not tasted very good to me and I only ate about half of it 😦 but thankfull I did have 2 carrot sticks with me that I ate happily
5:30pm- Spoonful of Barney Butter + organic hazelnuts
This is where I did something bad….I went out and ate with Chad at Luigis….but really I’m just “detoxing” to stray away from craving the bad foods all the time (like I usually do after a lot of cheat meals)….I think of it more as just eating really well for 90% of the week and allowing a cheat meal or 2 ….just nothing super crazy
7:30- tortellini with 2 bread rolls (all unpictured)
I haven’t been getting much sleep this week due to a lot of stuff going on in my life so I finally got to sleep in! THANK GOODNESS!!
10:15am- hot H2O with lemon, Hot Yogi Tea
10:30am- green smoothie (same as Day 3) and a spoonful of Barney butter
20 min circuit training (similar to 30 Day Shred) then some extra lifts to single out some problem areas, and 20 min of incline sprints (incline of 9 at 9.5 mph- 15 seconds on and 30 off)
4:00pm- after talking to everyone at the rec I made it home to feed my famished tummy….I had another spoonful of Barney Butter (i honestly cannot get enough of this stuff for real y’all its the shiz), 1 can of organic tuna and a new Veggie/fruit juice creation (this time it was a SUCCESS!!) 1 cucumber, 2 carrots, 2 celery stalks, 1 braeburn apple, 1 kiwi
How I feel: I’m actually feeling like I have TONS more energy considering the hard week i’ve had with sleep deprivation and whatnot) and I am going harder in all my workouts too! I honestly feel great, even with my few “cheats” but I’m not detoxing to lose weight or anything just to get back in control on my cravings. I mean I know it kind of defeats the purpose of detoxing if I have a cheat meal but at the end of the day I’m happy and thats really all that matters….and if I want to keep calling it a detox I will! hahaha
Anyway, its off to bed for me! I have a long day tomorrow….spin class at 10:30, Yoga at 12:30, Chad’s flag football tourney, then meeting up with some of his best friends from TCU for some good times! I’ll make sure to take as many pictures as I can despite of my flash being burnt out on my camera!
