Days 6 & 7
The weekend tends to be the hardest part, especially when socializing. Plus the headache was back on Saturday AM so I was back to not being 100%. I chose to listen to my body and take another day off from the gym. The headache could have been from the Detox as Days 4 to 5 can tend to be the hardest for a lot of people. Especially, post holidays when we usually indulge the most!
Day 6 Saturday- I admit it. I broke my own rule and didn't eat breakfast but that's probably because I slept in so late! But it felt awesome :)
Breakfast- Slept through it
However, when I woke up.....I was STARVING, not at home and broke another one of the 7+7 rules, not being prepared! However, I was already one week DONE and there was no way that I was turning back.
Lunch - 1/2 English cucumber with hummus
1/4 cup raw sunflower seeds
2 ounces of goat cheese with various crudités
1/2 cup of carnitas lean ground beef
Snack - 1 link organic lean turkey sausage with 2 cups arugula and 1 tbsp. EVOO
Dinner - 4 ounces of lobster meat
One half baked potato
Outdoor Workout! Went paddle boarding for 2 hours (so much fun!)
Brunch - 1 soft-boiled egg
1/2 cup mixed berries
3 slices nitrite and nitrate free turkey bacon
Snack - 1 Serving of Overnight Muesli
2 ounces uncooked rolled oats (choose certified gluten-free oats)
1 cup nut milk (almond or coconut)
1 tbsp. unsweetened shredded coconut
2 tbsp. walnuts or almonds, chopped
2 tbsp. ground flaxseeds
2 tbsp.. sesame seeds
2 tbsp. pumpkin seeds
8 ounces fresh berries
1 apple, peeled and grated
In a large bowl, mix together the oats, nut milk, shredded coconut, nuts and seeds. Cover and place in the fridge overnight. In the morning, add berries and grated apple.
Dinner - wasn't super hungry so I kind of made a hodgepodge of good options
1/4 cup sunflower seeds
3 slices of cantaloupe
1 cup organic grape tomatoes
3 ounces beef carpaccio
Today/Monday begins Phase 2 of the Reboot where I begin introducing high glycemic fruits, dairy (not that I can personally have dairy!) and some starches back into my diet. Been feeling really good less the headache but I'm back in the zone and ready to finish strong!
I'm running my first road race in over 6 months on Saturday so I'm looking forward to feeling light on my feet! And finishing!
