21 Day Sugar Detox
Ok, so the day started off not so bad, though I will definitely need to make some adjustments to my planned breakfast and lunch.
Breakfast: Ground turkey with chopped broccoli and spinach, seasoned with thyme, parsley, salt, and pepper. This is a variation of my turkey breakfast hash minus the sweet potato and maple syrup. It was just ok, kind of blah, but I can definitely deal with this for the remainder of the week. Next week though, I think I might try something different. Any ideas? It needs to be something I can prepare on Sunday so that I can just portion it out during the week to take to work.
Lunch: Grilled chicken seasoned with salt, pepper, and basil. I bought this pre-made from Whole Foods because they had a sale on grilled chicken. Salad of frisee, cucumbers, radishes, red onion, tomato with a oil and vinegar dressing with italian herbs. Ehhh…I don’t think i can eat this for the next 4 days…but since I don’t want to buy anything else, I guess I’ll have to deal with it. I will definitely have to find something else to have next week. Any ideas? I also had some baby carrots and pistachios (which were stale and gross, but maybe that’s because they were pre-shelled?)
Snack: Celery with almond butter
This dinner was delicious. I added some tomato sauce (I made sure it was sugar free. Ingredients were tomatoes, olive oil, and spices), but if I was to make this again, I would add another side.
At this point it’s after 9pm and I am feeling a bit hungry and have a headache. I think the headache is from CrossFit, since I do get them from working out from time to time. I have to admit that I kind of feel like giving up on this detox. Maybe it’s just the foods I am choosing, but they do not leave me feeling satisfied. They taste good, but just missing something. Maybe this is me going through withdrawal. It’s only day one and I need to try for at least a couple of more days. I don’t want to give up!!
21 Day Burpee Challenge:
Before CrossFit today, I did 2 burpees. Easy peasy…
