3 Day Detox
It’s always more fun to do it with someone else, and my husband was NOT on board with the whole “detox idea.”
Here’s what went down.
- First Day: I weighed in at 136 lbs, and started like a champ! Until I got to the sushi salad for lunch. Ugh. Not my favorite. There was no fish, but seaweed. I felt really good all day, eating only vegetables in different forms, but what amazed me was how full I felt. My friend also mentioned that, she felt like she couldn’t eat all the food! By the end of the day, I was sick of vegetables, and thought to myself… 2 more days of this??
- Second Day: I weighed in at 133.5. I woke up with a headache, which I thought was unusual, I never wake up with headaches after a nice sleep. I felt weak, but still followed the plan with determination. But things went down from there. I laid down, or sat most of the day. Thankfully, I didn’t have much planned. The headache got much worse, until at 4:00 I decided to take some ibuprofin. I also ate a strawberry and 3 bites of mint chocolate chip ice cream to cushion the ibuprofin. (I know, not the best thing, but I thought I was going through sugar withdrawal.) I laid down at 5:00 and woke up at 8:00 still feeling terrible. I decided I was done. I was NOT detoxing if it makes me feel this horrible! So, I ate a piece of chicken, and a half piece of whole wheat bread with butter, and went to bed for the night. Couldn’t care for my family, couldn’t make dinner, I was useless. I had no intention of finishing the detox on the 3rd day. I had quit. What I didn’t know……was that terrible headache was my body actually detoxifying…
- Third Day: Weighed in at 132.5. Headache was gone, and I woke up feeling really, really good. Like, really good. I wondered if the headache was just bad sugar withdrawal. I eat sugar every day of my life! Whatever I want, whenever I want. (Not a good thing to brag about, but it’s true.) Anyway, I felt over the top great! I was more committed than EVER to finish out the detox! I went throughout the day feeling so good, I wished I could feel that good every day! Two pretty amazing things I noticed. One, while I was reading my scriptures in the morning, I felt like my eyes could see better! Every word on the page was super clear, and that’s saying something with my 45 year old deteriorating eyesight! While I was driving in my car and looking at road signs, the road signs were clearer! It was such a cool yet weird thing! Two, I felt like my mind was razor sharp. I felt like I could feel my brain connectors firing! Seriously, I felt so smart! My thinking was laser focused. I was on top of the world. I felt so good.
**Warning: it just may change your life a bit…
I will be starting another 3 day detox tomorrow and going through the weekend. This time with my daughter. Check back on Monday for the full review, or even join in! It will be fun, I promise.
Ok, scratch that, I don’t promise it will be fun, but it will be good for you!
