I am an optimist. You know the one that looks at a glass as half-full instead of half-emtpy? So, I am going to start by saying - I lost 6 pounds! Yeah! The bad news - I now weigh 159.8 which means that I was in the 160s. I suppose the lack of moving finally caught up to me. But I have more good news - I've been able to run! Since last Friday I've run 17 miles and (mostly) without pain! That is truly something to celebrate.
This Down and Dirty challenge with the Sisterhood is a group challenge and I feel like I've let my team down BUT I will make up for it. I promise. I foresee a big weight loss next week. I am currently on day 3 of the Clean Program and I am pretty sure that I will be losing more weight on this detox. And since I am only eating one meal a day, I have been more mindful of my water intake. I still need to work on it but I am doing better.
The food I've been preparing has been great (if I may say so myself)! I made fish curry on Monday, yesterday I made falafels from lentils and served it in romaine lettuce. Today I'll have falafel again. I've also discovered the joy that is almond butter and almond crackers. YUM.
On this detox there is no wheat, gluten, diary, nightshade veggies, oranges, beef or pork. The last two are not a problem because I don't eat them. I drink a shake in the morning and in the evening that is made from rice protein and I take a ton of supplements. So far so good, I'll let you know how it goes next week.
