ta-tummm! a whole week down! let’s go through the day before we get down to our week 1 update!
lunch (at chick-fil-a): grilled chicken nuggets with a side salad.
dinner: meatballs. mushroom gravy. cauliflower.
snacks: nuts. cheese. coconut apple coconut balls.
drink: water. tea. a la croix water.
how i liked what i ate
okay, so i’m getting in a breakfast rut. i’ll agree to that. 😉
as far as lunch goes, it was delicious… although i’m not positive it was completely within guidelines. i’m not 100% sure what they use with the grilled chicken nuggets, and i didn’t check the ingredient list in the avocado ranch salad dressing, but i chose that one because i knew it would be the least likely to have sugar in it.
the meatballs, made-from-scratch-gravy-because-cream-mushroom-anything isn’t in the detox guildelines, and the cauliflower. it was pretty tasty, although i’ll be honest; potatoes are better. 😉
for the snacks, i tried a recipe i saw on facebook using shredded apple, carrots, nut butter, and some other ingredients to make little balls that are dipped into coconut butter. they were okay. i personally didn’t think they were good enough to link the recipe OR to go through the trouble to make again. HOWEVER, they did give me a great idea about how to make some balls with a different combination that i would like to try.
how i felt
felt pretty good. i’m thinking i’ve finally starting to re-coop some of that lost energy, which is nice. 😉 hubs is feeling good, as well. 😉
alright, so here we go! the hubs and i stepped on the scale… and here are the results after 1 week on the 21day sugar detox!
me: 6 pounds released!
the hubs: 11 — ELEVEN– pounds gone!
i’d call that successful!
i do believe week 2 will be easier with this encouragement… and also having a better idea of what to do!
