Well, I am happy to say that I have made it through day 1 of my detox. I also did something I had never done before and that is break down a whole chicken. If you know me that is a big deal because I don’t do well with that kinda stuff. I did have to take a couple breaks during the whole process, I was starting to feel a little light-headed, but I eventually finished! Ewww….
I decided to go all the way and follow the level 3 in the detox program. I was pretty much following it anyways except for the sweets. Level 3 is a very strict Paleo lifestyle (grain-free/gluten-free/dairy-free/legume-free/sugar-free). There was only a couple of times today that I had a craving for something sweet or was starting to feel hungry. To curb my sweet tooth this afternoon I made some coffee with my homemade paleo/21 DSD friendly coffee creamer. To curb my hunger I had a couple teaspoons of sunflower seeds and about 6 tea-infused gelatin snacks(will post recipe at a later date).
The following lists everything I ate and any physical activity I did today:
Pre-workout snack: 1/3 cup roasted beets/sweet potatoes (cubed) & avg. 2 cups coffee w/creamer
Ran 6 miles at 10:17 ; 1:01:44 on the local trail that is by my house
Breakfast (post workout): 2 egg omelet w/ 1/2 cup baby spinach sautéed in bacon fat; 2 slices bacon; 1/2 cup coffee w/ creamer; 3 capsules fermented cod liver oil ( will have a separate post on this)
Lunch: chicken power salad / 2 oz passionberry bliss Kumbocha
afternoon snack: 2 cups coffee w/ 4 Tbl paleo creamer; 6 gelatin snacks; 1 Tbl sunflower seeds
Dinner: slow cooker roast chicken (3 ozs) w/ gravy ; 1/2 cup green beans sautéed in garlic and coconut oil
After dinner: 1 medium green apple ; 1 TBL almond butter
Bedtime snack: bedtime tea (8 ozs)
Onto Day 2…oh boy this will be a long 21 days. I didn’t realize until today how bad my sweet tooth is. That afternoon treat that I had been having recently was having more of an effect on me today than I thought it would. Until tomorrow….
Is there a certain food item that you have a certain time every day that you can’t go without?
