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?
