I’m fresh out of reasons as to why I should be doing this. The bottom line is I need to get down to 280 and I needed something to kick start the weight loss.
I weighed 329.0 – that is 23.2 pounds, I am still on track to reach my goal of 40 pounds lost during this detox.
Yesterday I got up and did Yoga at 10 AM. It was a fire class and so you sweat like a fat man in a plastic sack. I drank tons of water during and even had to leave class once to refill my water bottle because the humidity got up into the 70% with 98 degree temperatures. I’ve never left during one of these 90 minute classes but yesterday I was dying. So thirsty and I had to pee and i still had lots of poses to go.
Yesterday I had some orange juice and almonds for breakfast. A very small bag with sea salt. You aren’t supposed to have nuts on this detox, but I felt like since I was going to do Yoga I needed some protein and almonds are really healthy so I splurged.
Later in the day I a bowl of steamed cauliflower for lunch and carrots for a snack. Then I baked some Alaskan Cod in organic unsalted butter. Just a small amount which is also allowed on this diet. I didn’t choose to use any of it until after the first 10 days. You also are supposed to stay off meat for the first 10 days and drink protein shakes. I did not drink the organic whey protein shakes like I should have.
Then after dinner I had this massive headache and so I went to the store and bought strawberries and bananas. I came back to the house and made a smoothie and I splurged AGAIN by adding literally a tablespoon of coconut that I had in the freezer and maybe 1/4 cup of milk so that it would blend. Oh, and let me not forget that I can also have raw organic honey and so a large tablespoon of that went into it as well. The headache was not allowing me to think logically but when I was done blending with a banana and lots of strawberries it was possibly the best smoothie I’ve had in the last 6 years! It was better than Frulatti.
So depite the cheating I still lost 2.2 pounds! I’m sure that was because of the yoga and I hope to keep doing yoga every day for the rest of this detox.
