21 Day Sugar Detox Day 4 and a Treadmill Workout

Four days down, 17 to go!  To be honest the 21 Day Sugar Detox hasn’t been too, too bad so far.  Because I already eat a primal diet during the week, there wasn’t too drastic of a change for me.  The biggest changes this week have been removing cottage cheese, berries, chocolate, and ketchup from my diet.

Day 2 and 4 have been the harder days.  I feel like my energy level is low and I’ve been a little hungry during the day at work.  I think one of the hardest parts has been changing my habits because I stay pretty consistent during the week (I eat my lunch and snack at the same times every day).  Oh, and I really miss GUM!  It’s such a small thing but I always pop gum in after I eat or if I get a little hungry.  It’s probably a good thing that I am breaking this habit!

My meals all week have consisted of:

  • Morning Snack: Cinilla Nut Mix from the 21 Day Sugar Detox book
  • Lunch: Mexi Meatloaf from the 21 Day Sugar Detox book
  • Afternoon Snack: I’ve switched between green apple, avocado, or a banana coconut shake
  • Dinner: Leftover Balsamic Braised Beef or my Omelet

This was me while cooking dinner after the gym.  I was too hungry to wait so had a few carrots! 🙂

Plans for the weekend:

So I think the weekdays are going to be pretty much a breeze for me.  It’s not too different from how I eat already.  What IS going to be hard are the three weekends during these 21 days.  Although I follow a primal diet I pretty much follow the 80/20 rule and indulge a bit on the weekend.  Not having sweet potato fries, or cheese, or wine, or beer….ahh this will definitely challenge me! I am looking forward to making some more recipes though!

My workout tonight:

Because I completely failed at getting up and running this morning (I pressed snooze 7 times!) I decided to go to the gym tonight.  In order to keep the gym fun, fresh, and something to look forward to I like to switch things up.  I did a new Treadmill interval run tonight that I kind of just came up with on the spot.

This is a 20 minute run that gets you to about 1.9 miles.  If you run at 6 for an extra minute on either side you will easily hit 2 miles!  I was so winded for some reason during this run, but it was well worth it!

This is the first time I tried out PicMonkey!  It’s a really cool site that allows you to make awesome pictures with text, etc.  I’ve always seen Tina from Carrots n Cake use them so asked her for the tip!

Has anyone else been feeling sluggish this week?  Especially those on the 21 DSD?
