Anyway, let's get to the fun stuff! How did my body like being without sugar for three weeks? After seeing the results, it is safe to say my body loved it:
So what's next? Well, the detox ended yesterday but I am still sugar-free as of right now. I like the way my body is responding to the lack of sugar, and I believe I will continue on this course and only have sugar when it is a special treat. I think if I can keep eating clean and really get back into working out, I might be able to hit my big goal.
Oh yeah, my big goal! I would love to be down THIRTY pounds by my THIRTIETH birthday! That would be from my starting weight of 178 which would put me down to 148. I will actually be happy around 150, but 28 by 30 doesn't have the same ring to it! ;)
It's going to be a LOT of work and dedication, but I'm motivated. One, I want to be back to a "non-overweight" weight range according to the BMI. Two, I want to fit into the bulk of my wardrobe again. Three, I am sick of being out of breath doing simple stuff. And four, and most importantly, I want to be in top fighting shape for when I get pregnant again. I do not want to have another pregnancy where I can't work out.
Plan of attack:
- Continue clean eating with extremely limited sugar
- Power walk for 45 minutes each weekday
- Crossfit on MWF for an hour
That will mean that I will be working out twice a day 3 times a week. While it is a bit intense, I really feel like it is the best course of action to get me to where I want to be in the time I have to get it done.
Anyway, if you are on the fence about trying the detox I say to DO IT. I am so happy with my results, and most importantly I feel a lot better. Wahooo!
