I’m finishing day 6 of my detox and I feel great. However day 2 and 3 were pretty rough. I was SO tired. I think it was a combination of no caffeine and a teething baby waking me up at night. Saturday was supposed to be my long run, and I could barely get out of bed! I finally made myself go to the trail, after I told myself I had to just do 1 mile if that was all I could do. I started out really slow and made it past one, then two, then struggled to 5.5 before my little girl started crying and I had to stop. (I was supposed to do 7 miles that day for my half marathon training). But even though it was super hard, I was very happy I made myself go out and get it in. I don’t have that super tired feeling any more, and I have enough energy to get through my workouts. I am not severely decreasing my calories, I am just making sure all my calories come from whole foods and junk foods or ‘diet’ foods (No fat free, sugar free, chemical laden foods). If I am hungry, I eat, it just has to be on my list. So it doesn’t feel like I am doing anything drastic, I have just committed to no ‘splurges’ for 30 days. I am also using Isagenix Isalean protein shake for a meal or snack during the day, and an Isagenix Whey Protein shake at night. I think they have some of the best ingredients around when it comes to nutrition supplements, and consider them in the whole food category for that reason. But beware because even though there are some good supplements out there, they are NOT all created equal! But I look forward to my nightly shake right now, when usually that is when I am ‘craving’ something sweet.
We shall see what the scale says Friday. I am ready to be back in my clothes already! Here we go! Anyone joining me for the next 24 days??
