Thankfully this morning when I woke up the headache did not return. I had the same shake for breakfast as the last 2 days. The only thing different I did was that I brewed my detox tea and poured in about 16 ounces of cold water and then added a citrus energy fizz and shook it up. It wasn’t bad. I did this because this was my first day back at the gym. I trained with my trainer, he did a 20 min TABATA with me that consisted of KB swings, step ups, mountain climbers, air squats and knees to elbows. I finished it off with a 500 meter run. It felt good. Since I only worked out for 25 min I didn’t have a recovery shake.
When I got home I had a brown rice black bean tortilla and some humus from the local nature grocery store. The tortilla was like a slice of heaven! I am so glad a friend recommended it. I have been finding that all the gluten-free crackers, breads still have corn or soy which I cannot have. So this was a life saving discovery for me!
For lunch I made an heirloom tomato salad and on top I chopped up a Trader Joe’s chicken lime patty.
Mid afternoon I had a fit chew and a green apple. I unfortunately ate dinner after 7pm. We had a Middle School open house for our older son. I made chicken tenderloins with Trader Joe’s Curry Simmering Sauce. I had it with broccoli slaw and half of a medium sweet potato.
I have been told that my palate would change while doing this detox. I just didn’t think it would happen so fast. The simmering sauce has never tasted spicy to me and today it really left my mouth on fire. Also the sweet potato tasted so delicious it was like eating candy ha ha ha! Good night everyone! Bring on Day 5!
