Day 7 – 1 week down!

So I spent a good chunk this morning making mayonnaise, chicken salad with that mayonnaise, straining my chicken stock from last night, making chicken soup with that stock.  All this was to prepare for the week ahead!  Heading into week 2 of the 21 Day Sugar Detox and I’m actually looking forward to it!

The Good: Did my exercises today while out at the park with my daughter.  It felt funny doing burpees and squats infront of other moms but I knew it was now or never!

The Bad: It’s 1am and I’m still not in bed.  oops?

The Ugly: I’m not sure what happened but after eating the soup I prepared my stomach immediately got rid of it and then I felt ill the rest of the night.  I really hope it wasn’t the soup that did this because then that would be a waste of some perfectly good stock and a lot of food that went into it.  Other than adding some eggs into the soup I can’t imagine why it would do that.  My only other thought is the soup itself cleansed me?  Maybe from the weekend and my greek food splurge?  Who knows, I guess we’ll see tomorrow.

Christmas left overs

Started my period today.  While shopping around at Whole Foods non the less, always fun.  Ugh sometimes I get so annoyed with being a woman and having to deal with this every month.  Of course for me sometimes it’s every other month so I suppose I should be rather excited that my body seems to be putting itself on course.

Of course this does explain the face first binge into some Ferrero Rocher (left over from Christmas gifts naturally).  Seriously worst thing to have.  Afterwards I read the ingredients list and there was soy, milk but even worst of all wheat. Thankfully I didn’t have any IBD attacks.  And I am glad to say that after 4 I realized I was being stupid and just threw the rest out.  So, phew, crisis averted.

Let’s just say I am looking forward to (or actually maybe I’m not) the 21 day sugar detox.
