Detox Day 4

I slept well last night and woke up feeling not exactly euphoric but happy and alert which was a good feeling.  I bought 2 bottles of juice to make the morning shake.  I chose juice with vegetables to try and reduce the sugar.

I am a nomad at work and today had a desk with a spectacular view.

At 10 am I was excited to actually eat something.  My first food since Sunday was half a melon.  It tasted fantastic.

A little later I had half a pineapple which I enjoyed too.  At lunch time I went to the market to buy some more fruit.  I have never seen these before and I bought some to try.

I can’t believe it is Autumn already.

Look at these whoppers!

I would have liked to try these different plums but they weren’t on the menu today.

This was, a delicious pear

and some grapes.  These were very sweet with a delicate flavour.  Really good, even though they had pips.

Late afternoon I had a banana and some raspberries and supper was more grapes and a fresh fig.

I could drink herbal tea and water all day.  I am pleased I am sticking to this detox and even more pleased I can eat again.  Looking forward to the salad we can have tomorrow 🙂

 

 

About Lose Weight and Gain Health

Hi! My name is Zoe and I live in Hastings, East Sussex, with my son Harvey and dog, Milton. I have been fighting the fat for years but this time I am serious. I want to lose weight and gain health. This blog is about how I am changing my lifestyle so I can lose weight but not by just "being on a diet" but by making small changes to our lives so that as I lose weight, I gain health. I want my family to be healthy too and never have to struggle with their weight like I have. In common with many large people, I have gained and lost weight many times over the years. This time, I want to lose it and maintain a healthy low weight. I am interested in eating food that is nutrient dense and delicious and that appeals to children and adults. I do not eat animal products so follow a vegan diet. I try to use locally produced food supplemented with what I can grow myself. I support and try to use local farmers markets and farm shops. Another objective is to add more exercise to our days. It sounds so simple when I write it down :-)

    Go Zöe and Lara Go! I’m glad your mood is doing better than it was on Monday. There is nothing more challenging than feeling blah and challenging your way of eating, knowing it isn’t just for one day. I’m so proud of what you are accomplishing. Well done. Keep going strong. Don’t let the weekend mess up your great week. You CAN do this. Think of all the toxins in your body that are being released.
