So my knee is better, yay! That means I can finally get back to exercising. I’ll admit, an excuse to lay around on my couch for a week has been great, really. But it isn’t doing me any favors, and I’m certainly not going to be on track for my goal if I continue at this pace. My revised goal: I want to weigh in on January 1st at 160 pounds. That means 20-25 lbs to loose in the next 2 1/2 months. I got this.
As for the detox: so far I’m not seeing any differences in the way I feel. It SAYS you don’t have to change your diet, and need to drink plenty of water. It also recommends exercising, which I of course have not been doing. So starting today, I will be improving my diet, instead of just eating consciously and normally with my husband and mother (and alone). I will actually be “dieting” by reducing my bread, dairy and meat in take. This is the kind of diet I feel best on, and I find when I eat primarily fruits, vegetable and beans… that I find pastas and breads to be bloating. Dairy upsets my stomach and meat makes me THIRSTY, like: I-am-dying-in-the-desert-thirsty. So we will have to see how it goes.
I will also be exercising again, which today I’ll admit; I’m not looking forward to. I really slept lousy last night and I desperately need a nap. Perhaps I’ll have time for both. Not to mention my apartment REALLY needs to be cleaned again. *Sigh*.
I have been following the detox pill consumption and water in take exactly. The two morning pills + 3 fiber pills. The two night pills + the 3 fiber pills. The detox also included two packages with extra fiber in them for “if eliminations are sluggish.” I have already taken both packages… with no difference. I may consider reducing the three fiber pills to 2 instead, but I will have to see. I’m really hoping I did not waste the $40 on this product. I was hoping to use it as a restart to my diet, and hoping it would take care of some other problems, like the constant fatigue and food cravings. No luck. I have also stopped taking my Candida Support supplements to really test out this product. I will be continuing with the Candida and a fiber supplement after this detox is done.
