It's a good thing detox is only a couple of times a year.
So I made it through detox. I'll admit, I did cheat, but it wasn't a lot. I had to make the vegetables into smoothies because I gagged on a lot of them. I'm a wuss I know. However, by the time the week was over, I was down 11lbs!!!! I was so excited. This week we are working regular foods back into our meals. Protein at every meal along with fruits and vegetables. No breads, pasta or grains. That is a struggle for me. I have only has pasta one time, but bread is a struggle for me. We had burgers this weekend and of course I had to have it on a bun. My mother-in-law made chocolate chip cookies, so I ate some. I like to drink when I play cards, so I did that. The detox was good for me, but I've gained five of those pounds back. I'm down six pounds from when I started, but I need to continue eating how I was right after the detox.
I also noticed during the detox that I didn't have heartburn. However, when I started eating things that were high in sugars, I got instant heartburn. It's definitely something to think about it and consider when eating foods that I know aren't great for me.
I'm pretty sure I was angry at my husband for quite some time. He and Corbin (our son) went to get some ice cream and that was all I could think about. I just kept asking him for food and when he wouldn't let me have some, I would get upset. He kept saying he was trying to help me and I understand that, but I definitely think its a mind thing. When I wasn't thinking about cheese sticks, subs, or cereal, I was fine. However at other times, I just wanted to eat.
This week hasn't gone so well. My husband is gone and I have been running to grab lunch from restaurants and just grabbing something on the way home for supper. I have however been exercising more and feel really good. My next 5k is in 18 days so I'll definitely have to put some time in.
