Day 7- One Week Down

Well, Kyle and I made it 1 full week! Looking back at this past week it had its ups and downs. The further into the week I got the easier it was. I got on the scale today and have lost 3 pounds! This detox really is not geared towards weight loss but as much that you cut out your gonna lose weight. Kyle lost 5 pounds!
Tomorrow I’m looking forward to adding in fish and beans! Kyle and I have already talked about how this next week will be a little easier. I still will miss bread and pasta. What I’ve really missed this week is warm hardy foods like chicken pot pie or cheesy casseroles. The weird thing is, I can’t remember the last time I’ve had a chicken pot pie. Here are week 2 recipes.
I haven’t been able to exercise this week with the lack of energy but I plan on adding in a workout at least 5 days this next week. I probably won’t be able to do my normal workout with the lack of protein but I want to get myself back in the routine.
This morning smoothie consisted of strawberries, blueberries, and almond milk.
I went to pick up my vegetables at the Locally Grown this morning and took some trail mix in case I got hungry. I’m glad I did because I was ready for a snack at about 11.
Lunch was leftover tomato soup and kale chips.
With lunch I had a smoothie refresher. It contains 1/2 the calories that Naked Juice does.
I enjoyed some pomegranate seeds for a snack this afternoon.
Dinner was good! We had acorn squash, baked okra and long grain rice (cheated a little)
Kyle and I went to a going away party for a good friend of ours who will be on the mission field for the next year. We’ll miss you Trena! After the party we went to Starbucks and had some hot tea. I had the Calm tea and Kyle enjoyed Refresh. Both caffeine and sugar free.
