Day 13-15 of 28 day cleanse

Day 13 was pretty normal and chill

Day 14 i woke up to the worst muscle cramp in my right leg. Cramps usually come from an imbalance of sodium, potassium and water so i added some stuff into my diet for the 14th and 15th

I got free leftover pizza from the pizza place next to work and i wasn’t turning down free food. 

I immediately regreted the pizza, i felt horrible. The maple bar on day 14 pretty much totally fine, the pizza, nope. So excited for a yummy, healthy smoothie in the AM. 

I’ve increased my sodium intake and my fluids and so far the cramps have gone away. 

Its been 2 weeks and i am down about 5lbs. I am feeling better overall I’m craving better food. I am loving smoothies/juice in the AM and a big salad as part of a late lunch then eating a real dinner. And as you’ve seen i can have off day or throw in extra good food if i am going to workout. 

I think this may go from a cleanse to a lifestyle change. 

Though now I’m reconsidering my cheap pizza after the half marathon…….hmmm what else would i want???? 

I’ll keep you updated!

Day 7 of 28 day cleanse

Today is a prime example of what happens when you don’t prep. I was tired from hiking and didn’t prep anything Friday night and woke up late Saturday morning so I had no time to make anything, I also slept horribly and needed coffee. Insert Starbucks here.

Breakfast was the reduced fat turkey bacon sandwich. I did have leftover pasta and garlic bread for lunch thankfully.

This was snack:

How is it possible that something that should be pretty healthy for you is so many weight watchers points????? All the individual components are good for you.

When I got home this had arrived from Amazon! Can’t wait to start coloring and learning!

This happened, my roommates made butterfinger cream cheesecake kind of think. Holy crap was it rich, that is the actual size piece I took, minus one bite and that was more than enough. Sugar coma totally.

To combat the sugar coma I had a quesadilla I microwaved and a salad then read and went to bed.

And with that I am ready to get back to my 3 days of juicing!!!!!

Overall the last 4 days I feel pretty good about what I ate. The dessert wasn’t great and I had some cookies before the hike on Friday and Red Robin isn’t the healthiest choice but overall I think I did pretty good.

Ready to start week 2?!

Day 3 of 28 day cleanse

Today was a smoothie day instead of juicing and I got in just over 3 miles on the treadmill.

I am still so excited for dinner though!!!! It is amazing how excited about food I am. Dinner is the same as the last two days but tomorrow starts 4 days of just trying to do healthy non-processed food and I cannot wait!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am already salivating over dinner tomorrow night and Thursday night. I am feeling good though, there is still some bloat but overall I am starting to feel much better. Can’t wait to see how this keeps going!

Talk to you tomorrow!

Cleanse: Day 1 of 28

Hola, como estas? Bien, Bein.

How is everyone?

So my cleanse is of course unique to me, I do what works for me as should everyone. My plan is/was to juice until dinner then have a simple soup for dinner 3 days a week, the other 4 days I would eat regular meals but would try and make them as clean as possible while still being delicious so I don’t break the cleanse.

We are already off to a rip-roaring start hahahaha. I got 3 out of 5 juices made yesterday before I was tired and gave up. It is definitely time for a new juicer. After 2 moves I don’t know where the plunger is to show the food down into the juicing part so I am using a wooden spoon that gets caught sometimes and I have to do a single piece at a time as well as stuff is flying back out at me and hit me in the eye yesterday but I am doing it! and will make do this weekend until I can get another juicer.

Since I only got 3 of the 5 juices made I packed a very small simple salad to bring with me to work as well in case I am knowing my arm off before I get home to dinner and I have some no salt almonds. I did get my sweet potato and lentil stew made last night and poured it over a little brown rice to make it more rib stickin good and filling. My goal is to check in every day and tell you how it goes.

Here is my tentative menu: things will change and adapt though, and I already noticed my date is wrong, that last Monday with the date should be the 7th not the 31st hahaha!

So here we go!!!

My starting weight, before I even started my little pre-cleanse was: gulp…..170.2 lbs. and I am in between a size 10 and 12 (US women’s sizes). I am bloated and tired and my stomach hurts pretty often pre-cleanse. I need more energy and drive. And right now when I run I feel so tired and sluggish and weighed down.

7am- carrot, apple and ginger juice. I sipped on it for about an hour. 

A little handful of almonds for a little crunch 

A small salad for lunch along with juice

After work i went for a little run

And for dinner Alicia Silverstone’s sweet potato and lentil stew over brown rice

It was a little blander then normal because it was half water,  i didnt have enough broth, but it still tasted freaking amazing!!!!!! 

So foam rolling

And that is day 1 in the books. It was difficult but not as bad as i thought it would be. Every food in the world sounded good today.  Hahahaha. 

Anybody else jumping on board for this 28 day change of eating?

If so what are you changing about your diet?    

Juice Cleanse!!!!

I did a little research and the perfect cleanse for me jumped out! It was made by the guy from the documentary Joe Cross and Dr. OZ or at least it was endorsed by Dr. Oz hahahaha. It is a 3 day cleanse with a meal at the end of the day. They suggest only fruits and veggies for this meal but I am going to make a vegan lentil soup so I get a little extra protein from the lentils so I can still train for my half marathon.

I am going to do this for 4 weeks, every Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday will be cleanse days for me and I will do smoothies, juice, homemade salads, and keep it as free of processed foods as I can (on my budget) for the other 4 days of the week. I will start this Sunday and do it this week, next week (the 23rd) the next week (the 30th) and my last week will be a little different. I will be skipping Sunday the 6th and instead doing Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday that week. The 6th is my BF and I’s 1 year anniversary and he is taking me out to dinner 🙂 and in full disclosure I plan on picking up a whole pizza just for me on my way to work or having one delivered the day of the half marathon lol. So that is 2 days I will be a little off of my eating but otherwise I am going to try and keep it as clean as possible.
