Hey ya’ll! So last week and over the weekend, I was feeling very sickly and having some stomach issues. I think it was the final push of the mass detox this diet is forcing me to go through. I didn’t feel up to doing much more than what was required of me for several days, so I am just now getting to sharing my recent progress! The good news is that I am starting to feel some more energy this week and I have noticed that I am needing less snacks through out the day as well as NO HEADACHES and no afternoon crash anymore! My skin and hair keep getting softer as well!
Day 13 Food:
breakfast: two hardboiled eggs, 1 green apple, 1/4 cup of walnuts and bulletproof coffee
Lunch: Greek Crockpot Chicken, orange slices
Snack- Lemon Rasberry energy bar
Dinner: Steak Salad with walnuts, romaine, green apples and balsamic/oil
Day 13 Workout:
Ran 3.5 miles in the AM (legs still very heavy and felt so slow =( )
During afternoon break did a circuit of 4x: 25 pushups, 50 squats, and 1 min. plank
*Still feeling heavy and tired with mild headache. Had some stomach pain during my run which was a little disappointing since I am trying so hard to stick with the challenge. Just hoping it continues to improve.
Day 14 Food:
Breakfast: Paleo pancake with almond butter and blueberries and bullet proof coffee
Lunch: Greek Crockpot chicken and a green apple with some sea salt
Dinner: Shamefully an EPIC bar with some watermelon and veggie chips from Kroger (Not feeling that well!)
Day 14 Workout:
Power Yoga, inversion practice, and core/mobility work.
*Still feeling heavy and tired, but improvement in stomach pain and headache.
Breakfast- two hardboiled eggs, 1 green apple, almonds and a bullet proof coffee
Lunch- another EPIC bar and veggie chips
Dinner- Cod with Moroccan rub and Ghee, broccoli, watermelon
Day 15 Workout- I was so sick to my stomach, I think I picked up a bug or either this is another stage of the mass detox my body is going through, but I could not for the life of me muster up the strength or energy to workout. So I binge watched Orange is the New Black after I got off work! Sometimes its best to just recover.
Day 16 Food:
Breakfast: Today is meal prep day so I ate a Lara bar and a banana since I was out of eggs.
Lunch- Cod with Moroccan Rub and Ghee and Broccoli/Watermelon on the side.
Dinner- Paleo pancake topped with almond butter, cherries, and coconut flakes and (I know this sounds weird) a grass fed beef hot dog from Apple Gate Farms (I wanted to try it since I found some at Kroger that were compliant).
Day 16 Workout- Still sick to my stomach but getting better.
