Food/Training Log: March 25/26, 2012 (Sugar Detox Update/Results)

March 25th:


- 1.5 cups of coffee with unsweetened almond milk & vanilla


- A beef patty with leftover spaghetti sauce

- 2 Brazil nuts

- A handful of baby carrots with almond butter

- The remaining 8oz of the raw kombucha from yesterday


- 3 Burgers: 1 plain with mustard with pickles, 1 that had bacon grease mixed in (before grilling) with mustard, tomato & pickle wrapped in lettuce and another regular 'ungreased' patty with the same toppings wrapped with lettuce

- 1 regular sized beef hot dog

- A bunch of sliced jicama with a little salt & meyer lemon juice


- A cup of coffee with unsweetened almond milk & vanilla (I brought in the coffee today in an attempt to help flush some of the water weight gained from yesterday)


- A BBQed burger with mustard



* The sugar detox is officially over and I can honestly say it was a great & empowering experience. I feel so much more in control of cravings. Certain things may still sound good, but it's not at all hard to say no and pass on them or to pass on buying them (of course now, if I really want them, I can have them). It's a great place to be in. I also want to say that it's helped improve my mood. But I'm not sure if that's from the detox or just the time of the month...Ask me again in another week. ;)

Yesterday, I started having a little anxiety over how I would move forward after being 'free'. I'm a little nervous about how to proceed, but I've decided to just continue as I have been and not put focus on being able to have certain things because I technically can. I'm a little afraid of backsliding should I allow too many things back in, so I will just proceed with caution. Right now I don't have an interest in many things outside how I have been eating the last 3 weeks. But who's to say what will happen in a couple hours, days or even a week or 3. I'm comfortable where I'm at now, but I admit to having a little relief to be flexible if I have to. I also won't say I will for sure 'do this or not do that'...just going with the flow. =)

I have lost a little weight on this detox and tonight I will find out just what has all changed. I'm excited!


- Half a cup of coffee with a little cafe mocha creamer (the creamer doesn't taste as good as I remember; tasted fake)


- Morning Paleo Smoothie: Used 1 whole can of full fat coconut milk, 1C cut up fruit from leftover fruit salad (fresh pineapple, mango, banana, strawberry along with diced jicama). I only added one egg and one spoonful of almond butter along with the vanilla & ice

(After only a couple swigs of this my tummy started becoming upset. Not sure if it's from the acid of the fruit, the coconut milk, the raw egg (I've had raw yolks before) or possibly a delayed reaction from the coffee/creamer- I probably tried to do too much too soon. My stomach wasn't having it)


- 1 egg scrambled in butter with 2oz ham and two sliced white mushrooms & seasoned with salt/pepper

- 1-2C kale sauteed in bacon fat & seasoned with a little salt, garlic powder & ground pepper

(I thought I would go back to a more normal breakfast, ditching the smoothie. Maybe it was a placebo affect, but it actually seemed to help settle my tummy a bit)


- 2 chocolate filled cadburry eggs- They'd been in my freezer for almost a week and I went for it. Felt weird and a bit icky after..surprise?

- 5 tiny bites of leftover fruit salad (this didn't seem to upset my stomach, so the issue was something else this morning)

- A huge chicken salad: 2 small BBQed chicken breasts on chopped romaine leaves with carrots, mushrooms, radishes, celery, calamata olives and dressed with a mix of 2tsp EVOO, the juice of a whole meyer lemon, minced garlic, salt, pepper, oregano & basil

8:00PM (Post-Workout)

- A big bowl of scalloped potatoes mixed with ground beef and corn

*So, as you read, I did test the food waters a little bit today. I've concluded that I do feel best sticking to what I've become accustomed to, although there are some things like fruit and starchier foods I'd like to slowly work back in. Slow being key. 



- Tabata Sets (20 seconds of work followed by 10 seconds of rest for 8 rounds or 4 minutes):

  • Jump Rope for a 4 minute set
  • Jump Squats for a 4 minute set
  • Sumo-Deadlift High Pulls with the 62 for the first 2 rounds & the 53 for the rest for a 4 minute set
  • BW Squats for a 4 minute set

** So my measurements were taken tonight and based off 'Day One' here are my results:

- 4.5lbs lost

- A slight increase in my lats

- A drop of just over an inch in my waist

- A drop of 1.5 inches in my hips

- A 1/4 inch drop in my thighs

- There was also a 3% drop in body fat percentage points

Now, I didn't expect a huge change just because I'm already small with not a lot to lose. But, I'm definitely happy with the outcome!

Thanks! That would probably be a really good thing for me to do! I'll let you know! That would be tough for me as I have a little of a sweet tooth, that I usually only indulge in once or twice a week but sometimes it can get the best of me! :)

Thank you Pam! It was easier than I expected although I can say my husband is certainly glad it's over. If you think you might be interested in trying this, I can steer ya to where I got the info!
