Detox-End of week one

I survived week one of detox and I have to admit I feel pretty damn good.  The first day was tough, but that was because I didn't plan as well as I thought.   I have more energy, seem to be in better moods and overall just feel 100% better than I have in a long time.   (And I've lost 4 pounds...YIPPEEE!   Even though that was NOT my main factor for doing this.  Which to me is surprising because I am CONTSTANTLY obsessing thinking about my weight)  Hence my Detox Recipe Book cover:

Thanks Hope for the inspiration....

What did I learn I liked this week? 
  • Radishes & red cabbage in my salads
  • Sweet potatoes
  • Beets-cooked
  • Cilantro (I knew I liked it but pretty sure I love it)
  • Butternut squash
What did I learn I don't like this week?
  • Beet soup (I never actually tried it, but each time I did I gagged)
  • Carrot & Mango smoothie-seriously that stuff was some nasty shit.
  • Kale Chips-pretty sure this would be something a dog wouldn't even think to sniff

 What did I overkill this week?
If you know me, you know once I find something I like, I'll over:
  • eat it (birthday cake)
  • play it (Eminem & Rhianna anyone?)
  • read it (Twilight)
  • watch it (Real Housewives & Dirty Dancing)
So with that said, I over ate the hell out of avocados & sweet potatoes.  Pretty positive I kept the local grocerer wondering where their avocados & sweetie taters went!

I'm so looking forward to week 2!  I get to re-introduce beans and some protein like salmon and flounder and tofu!  My favs!

Here are some shots of that McNasty Mango Carrot Smoothie:

You'd think this wouldn't be so bad right?
I remember thinking..."Hmmm...I don't know about this"

Maybe if I put it in my Hokie Tervis it won't be so bad???  WRONG

You did great! You were so hard core! I failed a little on my end, but picked myself up and said that tomorrow is a new day. I'm really proud of you.
