Hey hey out there!
Finally getting a blog post up! I’ve been busy sleeping in my free time. (Only partly kidding.)
I’ll admit my life right now seems a little consumed by this whole detox thing lol. While it’s definitely gotten easier, there have been different phases and supplements and body changes to go through and get used to. And, being sure to LISTEN to my body has left me resting a LOT. Hence, the #ivebeenbusysleeping part. So, I’m still taking the stance that while this is not easy, it’s not hard.
That being said, if you know me, you know I like to say it like it is…..so….
Given how this has went so far and some things I’ve been researching along the way, I’m not sure this strict of a nutrition plan is a good idea for someone with a past history of an eating disorder like binge and closet eating. I will admit I was a little worried that this would set me up for failure. And, while I’ve stayed strong and on the plan 100%, I’m not sure I was quite ready for this. AND, I wanted to say this part in case you’re out there thinking of doing a detoxification plan or something really structured and strict and have had prior issues with food. I would still do this, and I know I CAN do this! And, it really only is 21 days…. But, it has created a lot of thinking about what I’m gonna eat when I’m done and I have gotten a little fixated on what I’m not having right now and that’s not exactly the healthy thoughts I was hoping to have. So, I just want to throw this out there to proceed with caution if you have any similar past behaviors as I do. While this is not a weight loss plan and is designed to help reset your body to “factory settings”, I just feel like even as much as your body could need and benefit from something like this, I want you to be sure you’re really in a good place with food first 🙂
Ok, now THAT being said, even given my past, I’m proud and determined to only go up from here! (or dare I say DOWN lol…but you know what I mean)
What this has taught me already is that if I can do THIS with my eating, I can do ANYTHING.
I will be sharing more of the things I’ve went through and that are so common with this after I’m done. My accountability partners often say, “Oh wow, I’m noticing that, too. Or that happened to me, too!”
Here are some of my food pics from the past week 🙂 I’ve still been eating a lot of the same thing to save money and time 🙂 And, it’s actually TOTALLY ended up saving me…..money and time! And, I don’t just mean as opposed to doing the full plan (I’m following something called the Crunch Plan where you repeat meals throughout the week) but for my life in general! My food budget and the time I’ve spent on food is far less in these two weeks than a typical week (aside from buying organic frozen blueberries for almost $10 at our local Wal-mart! yikes not cheap)! What it hasn’t saved me time from doing is actually eating! Ha, I swear it’s so much food that it takes me like a half hour to eat the meals. And, gotta love all the colors and the smells!
And, here are just a few of the temptations I faced!

And, it’s PEEPS season! YAY! I had to post on FB to see who loves them like me. I would say more people do NOT in fact love them…but it was a closer race than I thought it would be!
How many days do I have left? Well, the countdown is officially on! I’m on day 15 of 21!
And, I couldn’t be more excited about my results just two weeks in!
While I still haven’t stepped on the scale or remeasured, as I LOVE to tell my clients, pics don’t lie 🙂
Yes, #operationkillthebackfat is in full-force. #thatshitsgoingdown
There ya have it! The time really has went fast! And, I’ve been working pretty diligently behind the scenes on my next step. Let’s just say I’m so ready for it this time. AND, I so so so miss my workouts! I cannot WAIT to get back to them! Yoga has been great and necessary BUT I need to get my sweat on and get back to weights! Any guesses at to which program I’ve decided to start after I’m ready endurance-wise?? It’s not what I had originally planned 🙂 #staytuned
And, I just had to share this pic of my little that came up in my memories this week. This was one of my fave pics of her when she was little 🙂 She turns 7 this month! #wheredoesthetimego #stopgrowing #yesshesstillaskinghowmanyhourstilherbirthday #imeanhowcuteisshe 🙂
Ok, peace out guys!
