Day 9 of 14 day detox :: February 8th, 2018
Although I feel like i have died a slow death without eating any sweets. I miss chocolate and ice cream. That has to be what death is like. — Except maybe God has like endless desserts in heaven so maybe not. LOL
As you all probably noticed I skipped five or so days. *shoulder shrug*
I got bored of typing my everyday blah blah blah and I’m sure all you got just as bored reading it. SO i took a short break and decided to update every so often. I feel close to done but I know I’m not all that close at all.
Anywho, I’ve still been eating all the same bland chicken or beef or pork. Nothing new there. I have been having a shit ton of fruit as per the first four days. Fruit is so boring I swear. BUT I’ve been trying to mix it up a little and make smoothies in the morning or at night, so i can make life a little more exciting.
BREAKING NEWS……. the shakes and pills still taste nasty as ever. Sometimes I don’t drink like the last four ounces of it, but really how much protein am I really missing out on four ounces! LMAO. Oh well.
Yes, if anyone is interested, I am still peeing constantly.. AND it is still extremely annoying.
I haven’t had a migraine since day 4. SO I am holding my breath that, that continues these last five days. It has been such a relief but we will see how it all goes. I am a little nervous to start adding things back into my diet to see which food are triggers and which aren’t. But I am also really excited that I will atleast get to try things again that I’ve been missing. Like PIZZA, ICE CREAM, WINE.
But honestly he will probably let me add small things back in like bananas, or coffee, or something. Which honestly I would be totally fine with adding back in coffee cause man I miss coffee in the morning.
And a little secret….. I gave in and ate a cookie. Cause lets be honest one cookie isn’t gonna kill me LOL
Good news for me is, I didn’t get sick. I’ve been told to continue to hold off on things after my two weeks is up because I will get sick and probably throw up from my body not knowing what I’m eating since its been 14+ days since I last had it but. I wanted the stupid cookie and my co worker makes the best Monster cookie with peanut butter and they are just so ooey gooey — Like i couldn’t pass it up. And I don’t even feel a little guilty!
Probably gonna cheat again tonight too cause It’s Wine and Yoga night BUT. Also don’t care because its just one glass of wine. It’s gonna be fine.
I will more than likely update within a few days but no guarantees. lol I don’t want to bore you guys too badly.
Have a lovely day y’all!
Day 4 of 14 day detox February 3rd, 2018
My brain is clearly over this. I still get annoyed when I wake up and realize I still can’t eat what I want for breakfast, but never fail… my shake is always there to have my back. Once again the norm now, shake and pills. This morning however I was treated to a massage to help break up my neck and shoulder muscles maybe help to reduce some of my migraines. I am up for trying just about anything at this point.
So I went to the store and wandered around thinking of things i could possibly have. Although I had already looked through the chip aisle. I wanted to look again because to be honest snacking on fruit or carrots is getting really lame and I need something else to grab so I don’t give into chocolate. AND the results are….. I CAN HAVE POPCORN. well not all kinds of popcorn but SmartFood Delight. I can only have the Sea Salt, BUT i love the white cheddar – however as you probably figured I cant have cheese or dairy so.
This was alll I typed out for day 4 and I’m over it so here it is.
LOL just as it is.
Day 3 of 14 days of detox
What a lovely time to be alive. I did not prep anymore bacon for my breakfast this morning, so shake and pills it is. My mistake this morning was choosing to not follow the rules and mix my shake with cold water. NEVER will I make that mistake again though because….. imagine that it does not mix well. And let me add drinking chunks of protein mix is quite disgusting and makes you lose your appetite for the day very quickly. BLAH.
I ate some fruit as a snack and had some grape juice to choke down my shake.
Lunch took forever to come, but i enjoyed some bland chicken seasoned with salt and pepper LOL and some more potatoes. pretty much like always my side dishes consist of carrots and fruit, they are like the easiest to pack and are quick to eat. BY this time of the day i had already drank 64 oz of water. After work, i had another migraine… so i took a nap.
Bad news of the day, i caved. I really was craving some french fries…. SO i drove my ass to Chick-fil-a and got some fries and a fruit cup to compensate. *shoulder shrug*
If i could use emojis these blogs would be so much more fun!
The fries aren’t actually a no, since they are potatoes. buttttt I am suppose to stay away from fried foods. So chalk that up as my first loss of these two weeks and we will just move past that little mistake.
So i arrived at my parents house around 830 or so and to my surprise my papa made pizza! Normally i would be Ecstatic and all cause I love when my daddio prepares pizza cause he knows I’m coming home. BUT jokes on me, i can’t eat the pizza this time. So i looked around the kitchen awhile and finally gave up and just drank my lovely shake. And can’t forget the pills to go with it.
By the end of the night I already had another migraine.. I just keep marking down all these lovely migraines that are occurring. And even though its day three it’s already obnoxious that i am doing a detox to help figure out my triggers for my migraines and imagine that…. I am still getting migraines. Trying to stay positive though.
Until next time lovely’s.
Day 2 of 14 day detox, February 2nd
You never really realize how bad your habits are until you have to actively stop doing them. LOL especially when you habits consist of eating donuts every day at work, drinking coffee regularly, eating desserts and chocolate of all sorts.
Breakfast as usual was the shake and pills. Pills still taste disgusting but the protein shake is a little better – forgot to mention the shake has to be mixed with room temperature water- so I definitely add ice after I mix it. Once I got to work I had a little later breakfast snack of 3 strips of bacon. Thankfully I can have bacon because its pork, now i don’t foresee myself ever hating bacon for having it tooooo much but I will try my best to not eat it every morning these next fourteen days lol well 12 days now. I also had some more fruit cause, yay, that’s like the only thing I can have so might as well load up on that. If anyone cared, yes I still am peeing every thirty minutes. It has got to a point where it is just obnoxious having to go to the bathroom this much because honestly people at work are going to start thinking I’m pregnant with the amount of times I am peeing. *eye roll* But anyway…. for lunch I brought my steak and potatoes. It was probably about half an 8 ox steak and maybe one russet potato, and then i brought 3 asparagus which don’t heat up well but if i have to eat vegetables that’s just gonna have to do. Once I got home from work I was already starving again so I had the other half a steak and some potatoes and then i cooked some chicken breast seasoned with you guessed it salt and pepper. And cooked some more asparagus. While that was cooking I happened to start reviewing ingredients with the snacks I have in the house. Although I had a pretty good idea most of them probably had dairy or pretty much ANYTHING else I couldn’t have I still looked over it all because let’s be honest i LOVE to snack!
To my luck I did discover a snack! I have a bag of butter puffcorn. Yes the puffcorn that you can bake and caramelize and it is the most delicious dessert ever. (UGH DESSERT, I REALLY WANT SOME DESSERT). anywayssss.. yes the butter puffcorn has pretty much corn stuff and some sunflower oil, well that’s the gist of the ingredients. So i can actually have a snack type dessert that fills my craving, well kind of. I still crave chocolate alot… and I almost gave in and ate some ice cream tonight but I know that I want these 14 days to prove something so I am trying really hard to be strong. And trust me it is HARD.
Once again, I have got a migraine tonight.. And I am starting to get a little frustrated because I have no idea if it is withdrawls or i am just still having migraines.
So i had some grape juice and drank my lovely protein shake, took my pills and off to bed I go.
If anyone is interested I am supposed to drink 1/2oz per my body weight to help continually drain and flush out my system. I have been drinking about 96 oz so far… today I drank about 112oz which is way over the suggested amount BUT i seriously feel so dehydrated I am drawn to drink water.
Waiting for these next 12 days to be overrrrrr.
Hope you all are enjoying, cause I most definitely am not.
