Don't Judge me, okay? I've been so stinking tired lately, and feeling like a such a loser, I decided I needed a detox. A sugar detox, that is. So earlier this week, I binged on everything sweet I could get my hands on. Then yesterday, since it was the first day of the month, I decided I would start a little challenge for myself.
I also joined my friend, in a little health challenge. It's not a weight loss challenge (although I joined one of those, too, a month or so ago--but it's not really helping me get motivated). Actually, it's a contest with points for not eating sugar, not drinking soda, extra points for exercising. That sort of thing. That contest doesn't start til next week though, so this week is like my primer.
So, yesterday, I decided I would do a little detoxing fruit fast. Basically for two days, I eat nothing but fruit. At the end of the day, I wrote down what I ate, and counted up my calories.
No wonder I was so stinking hungry!
Here is my food diary for July 1:
tomato, green pepper, onion,
pineapple, balsalmic vinegar,
olive oil, parmesean (grilled)
Calories Fat Sugar Carbs
475 22.9 41.9 68.8
Ok, so I cheated a little and ate some vegetables. But, I was hungry, and they were sooooo good.
Today, I decided I need to add some bread to the mix, because I was almost nauseous during my run this morning because I was so hungry. I probably have already eaten more calories for breakfast today, than I ate all day yesterday.
But, the good news is I've lost 1 pound. Hopefully, as I ease more food back into my diet, I can keep it off.
So, would anyone like to join in the challenge? If so, let me know, and I will email details.
