This week, I’m taking part in a “New Year’s Cleanse” eating plan for seven days, to help kick those nasty holiday cravings for salt and sugar. You can read about what it is here. I weighed myself on the morning of the first day. I will be weighing myself at the end to report on the total weight loss, as well as one week later, once the normal eating “floodgates” have been opened, to get a better idea of longer term change.
Yesterday was day six of the New Year’s Cleanse, which was fowl and vegetables day. The directions for day six were as follows: “Don’t be shy, eat to your heart’s content filling up with Chicken, Turkey and Vegetables – no potatoes today!”
Day six I can honestly say I didn’t feel like I was doing a “meal plan”. There are just so many things you can eat with chicken and veggies that it was a very easy day for me. I didn’t feel deprived; I just felt I was eating healthy! With my chicken, I had some homemade salsa, which did toe the line a bit when it came to a tsp of canning salt. But the teaspoon was spread out over 20 jars, so it wouldn’t have been very much! The only thing I find is that I get very tired of eating the same food by mid-afternoon… and last night for supper I did have two whole wheat tortillas with my supper again. I am very ready for Friday to get here so I can go back to my normal healthy eating!
Tomorrow is Day Seven… Happy Day Seven… because it’s the LAST DAY!!
