Detox Day 1: Listening to My Body

What was great about the first day of the detox is that I felt noticeably more clear headed. Eating when you’re hungry and eating clean food made for a great Friday. All of the meals were delicious, I felt great after each one and I even felt like I sweated more easily when I worked out. I know it sounds strange but I really feel that when you eat clean, because your body functions better, that means you’ll be more effective at sweating too.

The best part about Day 1 though was that I was getting tired around 9:45pm so I decided to go to bed. Normally I would stay up as late as I could until I could barely keep my eyes open – some nights that means I’m up until around 2am but I decided to listen to my body last night. I set my alarm for 7am, thinking I’d wake up early and get some work done. I didn’t have to rely on my alarm – my body woke me up at 6am and I felt super rested and awake. I didn’t want to lay in bed and I was immediately up and out of bed. This is great!

I’m excited to keep this going and I think I’m going to extend the detox to 7 days and I will probably carry some of the meals on after the detox is over – a glass of water with lemon and ginger upon rising I really like. I will probably keep juicing one of my meals everyday and I’ll keep the 2 snacks in daily – celery, carrots and cucumbers in the morning and activated almonds in the afternoon.

And I’m actually finding this really easy to do. Although I did go to a pub last night for a bit to celebrate Gian-Carlo Carra’s 40th birthday. There was a lot of beer and birthday cake but I didn’t have any although I normally would have had a few beer and a few generous bites so it was nice to not indulge.
