I started a 7 day detox yesterday. I’ve read from various sources that it’s a good thing to do to clear your body of toxins and whatnot. Part of me is still suspicious about the whole thing, but I figured it couldn’t hurt since it basically just requires you to eat healthy liquids and fruit and stuff. Yesterday was a liquid fast. I had water and later in the day had a raspberry, peach, & apple smoothie. The real kind made from real fruit & a juicer. But I mostly just drank water.
Trouble is that it made me hurt. Like headache hurt. I know it’s from the caffeine withdrawal. I’m so addicted to that stuff that I’ve probably been averaging 6 shots of espresso a day in lattes. Doing my national board stuff made me rely heavily on caffeine and now the pain has come. But, I’m doing much better today. Today I had orange juice (the real stuff), vegetable/bean broth, and 1/2 cup raspberries. Though I feel a bit hungry, I do feel good.
So, no exercise yesterday or today. Actually, I went to bed at 9:00 p.m. yesterday because I was so wiped out. But I feel good today!
