Detox - Day 2

8:30 a.m. - Walked into work and saw someone eating a McDonald's breakfast sandwich in the lobby. When does the I am so healthy, I wouldn't think about wanting something like that kick in?

9:00 a.m. - For breakfast I had blueberries and a bottle of water. I decided that as long as I manage to be gluten/sugar/dairy/meat-free, somewhat organic, and stay away from processed foods that this is still following the idea of Detox.

9:50 a.m. - I need caffeine!

12:30 a.m. - Instead of the detox chicken, I opted for a piece of Salmon and lettuce with balsamic vinegar and olive oil.

3:00 p.m. - It's official, I now know why people drink caffeine. It is supposed to help you work. Broke down and ate a small gluten-free snack.

Okay, surprisingly I am not as hungry as I thought I would be. I happen to be longing for food that other people are consuming, but I was able to resist when I ordered lunch today. The gluten-free snack though was too hard to pass up though.

6:00 p.m. - I went to get a haircut and then headed to the gym. I always hate having to ruin a good hair day and not taking advantage of a blow out by going out. However, since I can't drink or really eat too much, what's the point? I don't have that type of self-control.

8:30 p.m. - I was again surprised by the fact that I was not starving. I don't have much energy and my workout was pretty lame, but I still made it to the gym. It's really important to sweat when you are detoxing to rid yourself of toxins.


  1. Hi Becca!! Good luck and congrats on the blog!

  2. Neat blog! This detox sure must take a lot of self-control. I don't think I'd be able to do it for a whole week!

  3. Hi, reader from your sister's blog. Wow is all I can say right now. It will be interesting to hear about it after your week is up. I give you credit. Some of the stuff you bought for it, I wouldn't know what to do with it =) Good luck. I am always looking for ways to stay healthy.

  4. i can't wait to hear how the detox works for you.....i really don't think i have the self control....maybe someday....
    good luck!!
