Since my detox did not end as well as I hoped, I am doing it over again. We got guests staying over and I just couldn’t maintain feeding them and sticking to my plan. The great thing about my first detox is that I now know that I can do it. I was never hungry, I kept on plan for the 8/10 days I was doing it and I now have the tools to be successful. The detox wasn’t a complete failure because I lost 4 pounds in the first four days.
The one thing I didn’t like about my detox was the amount of carbs I was consuming. The green monster and some of the soups I made were really carb heavy and the fruit I was eating was also not helping. I want to try and re-do the cleanse and make it lower in carbs. For fruits, I will stick to berries and leave the tropical sugary fruits.
I am going to try and create a lower carb version of the green monster and also keep the soups as low carb as I can get them.
Some of the veggies I was eating were carrots and beets, which are really high in carb. Those have to be cut out for this period.
This time round. I am doing it for 21 days. By the end of this time, I hope to be in the 150’s. I was going to start Monday but why wait. Day one will be tomorrow and will last until 25th. My final weigh-in will be Saturday 26th.

I have also slacked on my running and I am going to start tomorrow. I haven’t done more than 10K since my marathon and I intent on getting back to my 10k+ weekend runs. Goal for January is 100miles. I need to seriously start focusing at the beginning so as not to run around like a chicken with the head cut off.
