I guess the detox thing is working. I'm drinking craploads of water- it helps that the vitamins and herbs are making me thirsty. I'm staying away from flour most of the time- had some yesterday in Protein Chips, but I wanted to try them. But it was Tiffany's birthday yesterday and I avoided booze AND the birthday cake. Go me. I asked for a club soda in a highball with lemon and lime wedges so it would look like I was drinking a vodka with soda.

I'm averaging about 45% carbs, 35% protein and 20% fat- which is what I'm aiming for and I haven't been able to achieve that before the detox diet. I'm doing this with fruits and vegetables, Ezekial 4:9 cereal, brown rice, beans, almonds, fish and chicken and... SMOOTHIE KING! I love Smoothie King now. I had my first low-carb strawberry smoothie yesterday and I loved it so much, I'm planning on having another for dinner tonight. But I'm getting just under 1200 calories a day- I'm aiming for at least 1200, but it's harder than you might think.

I also bought some Pina Colada whey protein powder so I can make some smoothies at home. So far, I haven't had time to do that in the morning. I'm still going to the gym but I'm not running. Elliptical and jumping rope- I'm a little too tired in the morning for anything more strenuous.

Anyway, at the weekend I was fluctuating between 179 and 182 and I'd been doing that for weeks.

This morning I was 172. And I've been on my little detox for 3 days. I hope that's the food thing and not the herb thing. I can maintain the food thing.

My last session is Friday. For weeks I'd been planning to reward myself with a massage when I was done but no. Instead I saw two pieces of jewelry on Amazon I'd been lightly drooling over for months on sale at 70% off. No kidding! $170 worth of jewelry for $51. How could I not? And it's $10 cheaper than a massage. :)

Besides, we have a table... maybe I can get Dear Husband to do it instead of a professional.

Today's session was a killer. I don't know if it's due to my change in diet, or the detox itself or maybe just a more intense workout, but I was lightheaded a lot. Afterward, I moaned all the way to Smoothie King. And got an extra scoop of protein.

FEOTD*: Lying on my stomach and Mr. W. rolling a medicine ball down my legs- like my legs are a gutter- and then when the ball hits my Achilles tendons, I kick the ball up toward my head where he catches it. I laughed a lot. I wish I could've seen it.
