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?
