I confess that day 2 of my fruit and veggie detox went very well. I'll admit that it was tougher being at work, because there is a lot more temptation looking me in the face - but I made it through A-OK.
I confess that I didn't go to the gym yesterday afternoon, and I have absolutely no excuse for it.
I confess that I just remembered I volunteered to help out after school tomorrow for a school function. Which means there won't be any gym tomorrow. Dang it! Now I'm really ticked about not going yesterday. Oh well, I get an extra 15 minutes today and Thursday at the gym. That still gives me the equivalent of working out the normal time of three days.
I confess that I'm a little nervous about having to eat back my exercise calories. And I may not, even though I'm supposed to. That's simply because yesterday, I ate enough food to keep me full all day - and the thought of eating more than that is a little mind boggling. Although, I'm an advocate for eating back my exercise calories - so maybe I'll treat myself to a yogurt for dessert after dinner, or maybe I'll eat a handful of almonds. We'll see.
I confess that after only two days of eating clean, I already feel a lot more energetic. Sunday night, I went to sleep pretty late - after 11pm actually. I got up yesterday at 4:15am. I was pretty tired for a while yesterday, but by the end of the day I felt much better. I wasn't able to go to sleep last night until after 10pm, and I was up at 4:30 this morning. I'm hoping my exercise will wear me out this evening - so I can go to bed earlier and get a decent night's worth of sleep.
That's a concoction of salad greens, salsa, burrito meat, natural guacamole, fat-free sour cream, onions, and peppers. It looks terrible - but tasted fantastic. Plus it was only 399 calories. Which is probably a little over half of the calories of what everyone else in my house ate - except a lot more food.
I confess that my body is starting to feel different, already. It made just be some mind play, but my body feels lighter. Not once yesterday did I feel bloated or lethargic. I felt lighter, more aware, and.. well... healthier. I noticed a bounce in my step - even at the end of the day when I'm usually exhausted and ready to get home and get on the couch. I'm enjoying the foods I'm eating. My body is enjoying the foods being put in to it. And, still considering I'm only 2 days in, I feel that I will get through this week being successful and eating clean.
Till next time. ;)
