On the Verge of Blindness

Day 3 of the detox was a doosie! It seemed like I experienced all of the side effects (headaches, blurry vision, cold sweats and hunger pains) that can occur when one detoxes from 40 plus years of processed food all and once. I must admit that I did think about giving up...more than once. However, I prayed and waited the side effects out. 

Today, my diet consisted of:

Breakfast: glass of warm water with 2 tablespoons of fresh lemon; orange and mixed berry smoothie

Snacks: homemade trail mix (almonds, cashews, peanuts, raisins, cranberries, pistachios, and sunflower seeds)

Lunch: grapefruit; salad and smoothie (beets, apple, carrots, ginger).

Dinner: steamed broccoli and cauliflower

Liquids: I drink half my body weight in water (112 oz.) and one cup of chamomile tea before going to bed.

I'm proud of myself for not only staying committed to the detox but continuing with the #TotalFit Challenge. On
Day 3 of the challenge is called "The Fuel Fit Blazer" from Jay Fuel Fit (@jayfuelfit). 

The workout consisted of:

5 minute jog (I can't believe I geared up and ran in the cold but I did :)
5 Minute Warm-Up
25 Prisoner Squats (I'm glad I didn't know what this was until I saw the video demonstration :)
10 Jump Squat Step Backs
15 Side Leg Lifts
20 Hand Walkout Half Burpees
15 Crunches
15 Toe Touches

The repeat as many exercises (not the jog) as I could in 20 minutes. I was in the middle of my third round when the 20 minute alarm sounded.
