Almost 1/5 of the way done with this dang detox! Can you tell I’m counting the days?
To be fair, Day 3 was nowhere near as bad as Day 2. I did find myself, err, running to the bathroom a few times, mostly I think because my body is not used to having such fibrous veggies for breakfast instead of apples and smoothies, but otherwise the day went pretty well. Here is what my menu yesterday looked like:
Breakfast: 3 scrambled eggs, sautéed sweet potatoes and asparagus
Lunch: Cocoa beef chili, similar to this recipe.
Post-WOD: A big carrot and 1 can of coconut water. I usually can’t stand straight coconut water but it was a really rough WOD and it definitely hit the spot.
Dinner (about 10 minutes after my “Post-WOD” snack): More chili. What can I say, it was snowing, and there are few things better than chili when it’s snowing (except maybe hot chocolate… sigh).
Snack: 1 green apple mixed with about 1/4 cup of canned coconut milk and a dash of cinnamon. I usually hate green apples but this was SO GOOD and I am definitely going to make a habit out of this!
And then… a miracle occurred. Even though we didn’t get to bed until almost midnight last night, I woke up this morning at 6:30, no alarm necessary, full of energy. I even left Brandon in bed and walked through the snow, by myself, to the gym. THIS NEVER HAPPENS. Did I mention it’s snowing and that any rational person would have stayed under the covers for as long as possible? Maybe there is something to this sugar detox business after all.
