Do the Detox

Thanks to a debilitating need for Sun-day drinking November-January (football season) I sadly fell off my weight loss wagon and gained 5-7 lbs.

Enough is enough. I will finish this weight loss, and be the fit superwoman I want to be. Screw all these p90 vows, and the beer binge day-drinking crap… it is on. I’ve created a 2-week plan to get the 7lbs off and kick-start my last lap to the finish line.

First up…. detox. My lovely Aunt, owner of Club NewFit, sent me the details which I’ve outlined below if you’re interested. I’m doing the detox for 7 days (Monday-Sunday of this week.) Post detox I’m doing 7 days straight of Bikram yoga (proven  fat-kicking track record,) followed by a new workout regimen, BOXING. I’ve been wanting to do it for years, and finally found a gym that combines Boxing with serious cardio and toning. That is all, wish me luck– and on that note… I’m off to eat veggies.

TO DO: 

1.  Remove your favorite junk food from your house.
2. Eliminate CAFFEINE and ALCOHOL!
You can have 1 cup of BLACK coffee if needed per day. (I know you would like that)!!!
3. Sleep a lot!
4. No physically strenuous activity for the detox week.

MENU PLAN:

Start each morning with the juice of 1/2 lemon in cup of warm water, helps to satisfy cravings and helps the gall bladder (responsible for fat digestion) to work more efficiently.

Pre-Breakfast – lemon water
Breakfast – veggies ( as much as you want), 1 serving of fruit
Lunch – veggies, 1 serving of fruit
Dinner – veggies, 1 serving of fruit
Snacks – unlimited amount of veggies such as carrots, celery, peppers, cherry tomatoes, broccoli, zucchini,
cucumbers, cauliflower, veggie broth.

No flours, fats or sugars, no oils, butter or margarine.

Seasonings:  Can use garlic, lemon, spices, herbs, small amt. of sea salt, pepper, vinegar, mustard and low sodium soy sauce.

AVOID:  Mayo, bottled salad dressing and ketchup.

DON’T SKIP MEALS, skip a snack if not hungry or add a snack. DRINK plenty of liquids, at least 8 glasses or cups of herbal tea or distilled, filtered,  purified or mineral water.

MANAGING HUNGER: Eat more veggies, drink more water/tea/veggie broth or hot water with lemon. Try to not eat protein for as long as you can but if need to try to get through 3 full days.  Add a very small amount lean, clean protein to either lunch or dinner.  That would be white fish, fresh or canned water packed tuna or salmon, lean chicken, turkey without skin, tofu, or plain soy or almond milk.  DAIRY is not recommended.

    Like the sound of the detox~! Def will try next week, although I’m disappointed about the “no physically strenuous activity for the detox week” 😦 Yoga for the week it is -_-

    That picture is a clear representation of the frustrations I sometimes experience during my workouts and “get fit” plans. Boxing and bikram are awesome workouts. Enjoy!
