Day 1-B-Well Detox: Smile!

Smile is the word of the day and you might wonder why I am smiling as I begin to change my eating habits, diet, and embark on this adventure of a 21-Day Detox Cleanse.

Today I feel like I am floating away having drunk about 64 oz. of water, but I digress…I started the day at 5:30 waking up and getting to the gym at 5:45 for my Couch to 5K workout.  I am on Week 3, jogging for 3 minutes alternating with brisk walking.  I am actually beginning to enjoy running and the nice endorphin rush that comes with it, giving me that great feeling for the day.  I came home, showered and made my egg with some onions, a bit of coffee with Almond Milk and took off for my last day of school before officially beginning summer vacation!

I had a snack of cottage cheese and a handful of raw almonds and a green apple.  Feeling content, I continued to drink my water.

Lunch was a bit disappointing because I didn’t really prepare as well as I should have, but we did have our staff party complete with sub sandwiches.  I ditched the bread and cheese (which I am sure wasn’t raw) and just ate the turkey, lettuce and tomato.

I had a snack at home (corn tortilla with raw cheddar cheese and a few strawberries) and am now preparing for dinner.  I think I will have a chicken breast and some veggies, salad and more water.

I promise to be a better food photographer beginning tomorrow, now that I am officially done with school and can spend a bit more time in the kitchen.  I really think I will succeed at this detox.  I keep reminding myself that it is only for 3 weeks, and that is the amount of time it takes to develop a habit.  Hopefully I am developing some new good habits.  Who’s cheering for me?  Comments, suggestions?
