Day 3 of the Detox

I made it through day 3! I have to admit though that I might kill someone if they walked in my house with a cheeseburger right now. It's really pretty sad how addicted I am to total crap food.
Here are the stats:
Day 1: 190 lbs
Day 2: 188.8 (-1.2 lbs)
Day 3: 186.8 (-3.2 lbs)
I'm pretty pleased with those results!

I started my day with a super yummy fresh squeezed citrus juice.  Here it is all cut up and ready to go in the juicer.  Let's see, we've got half a grapefruit, a whole navel orange, a lemon, and a lime.  I love fresh citrus juice, but let me just state for the record that peeling all this fruit is a total pain in my behind!
Here it is all juiced up and ready to get into my belly!  Yumminess all around!
A little while later I decided to try some Kambucha that I bought earlier in the week. I've read that it's supposed to be good for you because of the active bacteria in it (like yogurt). reminded me of beer.  I'm not a beer drinker.  Like at all.  I've maybe had two beers in my entire life.  So, yeah.  This wasn't rockin' my socks.  It wasn't horrible and I did drink it all.  I still have two more bottles in the fridge and I'll finish those, but I probably won't buy it again.
I can finally have some non-juiced food, so for lunch I had brown rice (which I cooked in beef broth) with some raw spinach, kale, and mushrooms.  It was yummy.
Then for dinner I had some more fantastic juice.  I forgot to take a picture before I juiced everything, but I had spinach, arugula, carrot, celery, apple, and pear.  It was sooooo good.  Look how pretty it was before I mixed it all together.
I followed the juice with some more brown rice with spinach, arugula, red bell pepper, mushrooms, asparagus.  I actually think this might be really good when I'm done with the detox and I cook the asparagus and mushrooms and add some feta cheese and garlic.
So, day 3 is done and I'm doing well.  No headache today!  Yeah!  Hopefully I'm coming out of the addiction to nasty food.  I didn't get in any exercise today.  We were super busy because I had to take the baby to the doctor (hate having a sick
On a side note, tomorrow is a good friend of ours birthday and I said I would make cupcakes for him.  There are currently 24 chocolate cupcakes cooling in my kitchen.  The smell is about to over power me.  I was good however, and rinsed the bowl and beaters immediately so that I couldn't dig into any raw cake batter.

  1. I'm with you on the Kombucha - I really wasn't a huge fan of it which was so disappointing given how good they say it's supposed to be for you! I'm so glad I'm not alone - everyone else seems to be head over heels for it!


I love hearing from my readers. Please feel free to leave a comment (or 2:)
