So spring break is over (booooo) and much fun was had. Lots of amazing food and drink were consumed. Lots.
Like, a lot, a lot.
Also, I have decided to finally admit what I already knew: The scale lies.
Because I have stayed in my window (you know, that weight you are semi-satisfied with, give or take 2 lbs), for over a year now, but I for sure am not feeling/looking as good as I did a year ago. I'm not working out as much or eating what I should be, and we all know I've had way too much oat soda this past week.
Also, I bought this dress in a smaller size because it fit weird in my usual size, but it's a little tight...And I want to wear it this weekend:
So the detox:
No grains with gluten
No meat or shellfish
No processed food including all soy products
No fatty nuts
No produce from the nightshade family — white potatoes, tomatoes, peppers, and eggplant
No alcohol, caffeine or soda
I went grocery shopping and honestly, my cart didn't look too different. I've bolded the things I'm going to struggle with, especially since there are some important events happening this week.
You're supposed to do the detox for 7 days. I may prolong it since I know Friday and Saturday I'm going to slip. Already know it and am fine with it! So I'll probably do it for about 10 days.
Honestly, this is a vegan and gluten free diet, so it's not like it's crazy. People live life this way, and are still functional...and probably really, really good looking.
Here is my meal plan for Monday:
Oatmeal w/water, natural PB, banana
An Amy's frozen meal
Cucumbers with lemon
Big salad or roasted veggies
Like I said, not so bad. I'm going to make a plug for Amy's tomorrow and how their food fits in perfectly with this detox and adds a little variety to your meals.
