Day 21

I would like to thank the academy…

Hooray hooray!! I’ve made it, I’ve made it!! It’s here, it’s here!!

Today was a perfect last day of this trek through 21 days of meats and veggies and warm lemon water and nuts and avocados and well, you remember. Jaime and I actually splurged and got Which Wich.  They make lettucewiches, which, as you can deduct, is a lettuce wrap.  It was a great way to have a celebration while still staying detox friendly!  I got an italian grinder with a hot pepper mix.  Spicy and salty and crunchy, totally worth it.  As for dinner, my chef got to reading and made the mustard-glazed chicken thighs from the 21DSD book!  They were amazing!  I’m quite disappointed we didn’t use this glaze recipe earlier. It was just yellow mustard, sage, salt, and butter.  Seriously savory.  I will without a doubt continue to use that recipe!

So now that this 21 Day Sugar Detox is over, I’m a bit beside myself.  Tomorrow I have plans to go out and I’m torn as to how i should go about it.  I don’t want to feel crappy because I get carb happy.  But I need carbs like Charlie Sheen needs Twitter followers.  Tomorrow will definitely involve carbs, but I’m not sure to what extent quite yet!

I am going to do a wrap-up about the detox and my final thoughts tomorrow! But for now I will give you my feelings in .gif format!

Beginning:  I’m starting a diet, starting a diet. I’m gonna lose weight. oh ya ya.

First weigh-in:

…and toward the end.

But now as you can guess, this is how i feel…

That is all for now.  HAPPY DAY 21!!!!!!!!

On to post detox life.

Day 15

Today’s recipe has been mentioned before!  Jaime gave me the recipe for cabbage and bacon with chicken.  You cook the bacon, add the chicken, throw in some onion and garlic, then a head of cabbage gets cooked down with that mixture!  It gets all gooey and carmelly and totally scrumptious.  Super easy to make. I actually thought it was really sweet!  Make it.

One benefit of this detox is that I am sleeping a lot deeper.  I rarely have super vivid dreams, but in the past two weeks I’ve been having them regularly.  Oddly enough they have been about the detox!  Last week I dreamt that I ate an Oreo but half way through chewing I just spit it out.  I was freaking out it had sugar in it! Literally this gif.

Last nights dream was that I drank a giant diet coke, huge no no! Then because of that I had a bite of popcorn, then another handful, then I ate ALL the popcorn.  I’ve told you I love my movie popcorn, I told you I have cravings!! But after I ate all that everyone was coming down on me about how I have to start over and I ruined it! It was so upsetting.  For half a second I thought I ruined all my progress!

If I haven’t already admitted enough, even my dreams are having cravings.  Also I hope you love .gifs as much as I do because I have found the mother load.

I am going to battle these cravings and hope I don’t wake up thinking: 

On to day 16.
