I am now down another pound bringing my grand total to 49 lbs - gone! I have no idea how it happened given my transgressions that I confessed to yesterday, you’d think I’d be up a pound. But no matter. I am one pound away! One pound away from 50 pounds down. I admit I haven’t been trying exceptionally hard to lose these last few pounds. I’ve really been in more of a maintenance mode lately but I have a feeling that once I can seriously start training for the half-marathon more pounds are going to come off.
I also have plans to start the Clean 21 day detox program. My friend Maricris suggested I try it because I’ve been having the hip problems and I figure it can’t hurt. I’ve actually done a one week version of the Clean diet in the past so I am interested in seeing what happens when I do it for a longer period of time.
Basically, on the program two of your meals are shakes and the other is from the elimination diet. The elimination diet removes all beef, pork, soy, diary, wheat, and gluten from you diet (among other things). I am actually going to be reviewing the 21 day detox that is available on the Clean website so all of the shakes and supplements are taken care of, I just need to add my lunch time meal. The kit arrives today but I am not starting until after BlogHer and my family reunion next week.
I’m not crazy! The thought of eliminating desert and alcohol when I am on vacation makes me shudder. I refuse to set myself up for failure so I’m starting Clean the second week of August. Stay tuned for the results, I really believe that this might be exactly what the doctor ordered!
The Sisterhood is also starting a 30 day challenge on Sunday, I’ve been a bit worried about doing the Shred while I am away but I know that when I go out of town I exercise so even if I don’t shred I will be moving my body -can’t let my teammates (or myself) down.
One last note about my training for the Half-Marathon, like a klutz I re-injured my hip on Saturday putting my son on a mechanical bull at the picnic on Saturday. After a great week of running I have taken a step backwards but I am determined to complete my race - even if I have to walk the entire way (please don’t let this be the case, I can’t imagine walking 13.1 miles)!
Since I can’t train the way I want to I am focusing on fundraising, I am $60 shy of my halfway point. If you haven’t donated I’d LOVE it if you could help me reach $2000 today(remember no amount is too small - or too large)! And if you’ve already donated, I thank you kindly!
