I seem to have NO energy today. Seriously I haven’t left the house all day. Thankfully my daughter seems to be entertaining herself today. But that could also be because I let her watch an extra Elmo episode this morning. Oops? hahaha. I wasn’t hungry again when I woke up so all I had was some water and then I had my lunch after my daughter went down around 1:30. For lunch I had some left over Thai food from the weekend. It was part brocoli chicken, part pineapple curry (I picked out the pineapple). On the side are my daily supplements and a glass of homemade kombucha
I am personally doing the modified version of the 21 DSD that is a mix between the athletes and the pregnant ladies. I am allowed 1/2 cup rice OR 1/2 cup sweet potato OR 1 cup butternut squash once per day if I feel I need it. I have read people who have hard core sugar addictions, and those that have trouble finishing detoxes such as this one, have done amazingly well adding some extra carbs into their detox.
Since this is my first 21 DSD and I have failed 4 previous whole 30’s. I was a bit nervous to even start. But after much praying God helped me to see that following the above modifications don’t make me a failure. If I could I would eat the Milk and Legumes as a part of level one to help curb some of the sugar detox pain. But as I’ve learned after a year eating Paleo, milk makes my IBD flare up like crazy, and rice is more benign than legumes so I’m actually safer eating it. (I also know for my body personally it doesn’t make my bloated like it does or may do for others).
So this is like my own personal Level 1. I hope for the next detox down the road that I can move onto “Level 2- no rice” and then your average 21 DSD Level 3.
The Good: I did my work out today! This one took me nearly 45 min, but I hardly felt it was that long at all. I also cooked up an amazing tasting pumpkin/chocolate chili that I was experimenting with. I’ll post the recipe soon!
The Bad: I may have had more like 12 oz of Kombucha today, so I’ll need to keep an eye on that.
The Ugly: I didn’t see the sun other than threw a window the whole day. Very, very bad. I need to make sure I’m getting some natural vitamin D
