Hurray, detox week is hereI was really looking forward to this week, I felt that my body is ready for a spring cleaning. How did I know? I was more tired than usually, little spots turned up on my face and did not enjoy food as usually. My digestion slowed down and I did not wish to eat meat at all.
If you ask me, I say frankly, do not enjoy this week. But I know that I will get back my healthy appetite, energy level and clean skin by going through this, so I am very positive and excited. Not to mention that 4-5 lbs weight loss what comes with the detox week. I do not need to lose any more weight now, but I do not mind to get rid of this before Easter :-)
Detox week - day 1 report
This is today's menu:
Okay, a bit more of everything, but no solid food: only vegetable juice, fruit juice and yoghurt.
There is no limit, I can eat as much as I want, but only these three things - and some herbal tea.
I have chosen a Pukka Detox Tea again, it has a really pleasant taste and the aniseed, fennel and cardamom can support the cleansing process.
Of course having juices and yoghurt all day can make anyone grumpy, so I was careful not to plan any kind of stressful activity for today. Actually, I did not plan anything at all for today. I cooked for the family yesterday, so I do not need to torture myself. I even managed to have a nap with my little one today. For some reason - both my girls were tired, so it has been a slow and quite day.
Oh, I miss my cup of coffee...
I did not expect this but I do. So, I am sipping my herbal tea and try not to think about coffee and normal food. I did it well so far, I sit down with my yoghurt to the table when the rest of the family had meals and it was okay. I mean, I did not feel I would jump onto the table and wolf up whatever I can find in the serving bowls (chilli and rice by the way).
However, I think I will make and early night today. The best to cut this day short. Tomorrow breakfast will be wholemeal toast and yoghurt, they look like a feast after the juice day :-)
