Daily Detox Debrief: The Other Side
Y'all...I think I'm gonna make it!
Insert my face in the pic above, and that's pretty much how I feel today: Awesome.
If you're just joining me on my processed food detox, you can catch up here and here.
This has been the game changer day. I felt great all day, didn't get hungry once! I even cooked for a dinner party at our place and sat at the table with them sipping my smoothie while they devoured some of my favorites (taco soup and my crack-biscuits) followed by the most beautiful chocolate ganache cake I have ever drooled over. And I didn't eat one. single. bite.
Someone call the national inquirer, because that's a frickin' miracle people. I'm just sayin.
I actually woke up early enough to see the sun rise this morning. (and if you know me, you know that's no small feat) I got up feeling completely energized, even though I only slept for 6 hours. I even got in a little workout for the first time in a while, and it felt good. (more on my fun new fitness tool coming in a later post) I'm down 2.5lbs on the scale and honestly feeling the best my body has felt in a long, long time.
Did I mention that I got up at 6am on my day off? Who am I?!?
Here's the kicker folks...today is supposed to be my last day of the detox. Supposed to be. But I feel like my body is just starting to feel the benefits of this purge so much that I have decided to extend it for another week. I know, I know, don't call the looney bin...I haven't lost my mind quite yet. I've never gone this long in my life without sugar, gluten, dairy (cheese, I do miss you so), meat...I just want to see what purging it out of my system really can do for my health.
So hang with me, or better yet...join me! I dare you. What have you got to lose?
(except maybe some sugar and that muffin top) :)
