Today is a good ol’ REST day! Thank goodness. It’s much needed rest. My shoulders are dead from all those Power Cleans yesterday.
I survived Day 1 of the 21-Day Sugar Detox! Woohoooo 20 days to go!!!! Wow I can’t think of it like that it seems so far away. One day at a time or my head may explode.
Yesterday around 10:30am a headache kicked in. I rarely get headaches since starting paleo so I was not happy. I choose not to take Advil or Tylenol or any relief so I just sucked it up and upped my water intake. I typically have one or two cups of coffee with my organic valley french vanilla half and half. That was of course nixed and I had two cups of TAZO REFRESH tea. As long as I didn’t focus on my headache I was ok but once I thought about it for any amount of time I was miserable! I did make it to the end of my day with no coffee and no Spark! Argh that was tough. I was good in regards to eating. I posted a picture of my snack yesterday. Lunch consisted of sirloin, spaghetti squash and some asparagus. My afternoon snack was similar to the morning. So all in all, SUCCESS. Dinner was a social night out with some ladies from the BOOM Box! Why I didn’t time this DETOX out better I don’t know, hahahah, but I was good. I had some quacamole and a fajita salad that consisted of steak and chicken fajita meat, leafy green lettuces, tomatoes, avocado, green chiles and I used salsa for my dressing. All in all my day fared well. With the exception of my annoying headache I felt a little more tired than normal but it was manageable.
Sidenote: Why is it that EVEN though I don’t eat the junky foods that I NOTICE the junky foods everywhere. I haven’t had an Oreo in 8 months or longer but I see a kid on Nurse Jackie eating them and I’m all YUMMM OREOs like Homer Simpson or something. Seriously man what is wrong with me! It’s mental, I’m mental. I did not go out and gorge myself on Oreo’s but it didn’t sound like a bad idea! hahahah.
As always I slept very well! But I did wake up starving and a creeping headache. After I showered I felt much better, ate a green tipped banana and half a chicken breast. My snack mid morning was a handful of cherry tomatoes, half chicken breast (left over from breakfast), two hardboiled eggs and 1 piece of uncured bacon. Lunch will be yesterday’s leftovers and mid afternoon snack will be similar to yesterdays snacks. I really miss my fruit! I really really do! More REFRESH tea to fill in the VOID. It’s a mint tea so it’s nice and truly refreshing! LOL.
Not sure on dinner, we have baseball practice and that sucks up a lot of time. I’m a little sluggish right now, hopefully by next week all of this sugar withdrawl will be gone. It just a little over a day it has taken a small toll on me. Nothing MAJOR but enough for me to notice.
