Wow, 10 days down! Almost halfway there. :)
First thing this morning, I headed out to my Weight Watchers meeting, led by the lovely Ashley...
I was down 4.6 lbs! I'll take it!
Funnily enough, my weight this morning (201.8 lbs), was my starting weight when I started going to meetings in November 2009. I lost 20 lbs to reach my 10%, and then slowly gained it back (and then some). I've been fluctuating around this point for awhile.
I think I will take this weight as a fresh start. No more gaining. This detox is a great healthy beginning, and a great motivator to focus in and just do this.
I will start posting my weigh-ins in the sidebar, starting with today's. Note that I reserve the right to quietly take them down without advance warning if it starts to mess with my head though. ;)
Breakfast was small - rice puffs with soy milk.
For lunch, I finished the rest of Friday's Chicken Tikka. I kind of want to eat this every day?
I ate it with a spinach and avocado salad. Yummers!
I decided that today should be a "Me" day. I haven't had a day of fun and relaxing just for me for awhile!
The Me Time began with a haircut and an eyebrow threading. Is it just me, or does getting your eyebrows threaded kind of feel like a bunch of tiny razor blades in your eye region? The results were great though, I think.
One thing I thought was pretty funny - the hairdresser asked if I was in high school! She thought I was 16 or 17 (I'm 25). To be fair, I was literally crying at the time from the eyebrow threading, which probably did bring out my younger side.
I couldn't resist picking up a treat for dinner (various roasted vegetables) from The Big Carrot's deli counter on my way home, because I knew what I had planned for this evening: Joshi's required liver flush, consisting of the following ingredients:
First I had a yummy snack though. Toast with almond butter and honey! With pomegranate green tea.
Sigh. Those moments before the liver flush were a simpler time.
The good thing about the liver flush is that it required me to dig out what was given to me a week ago. Yes, the item from the bag that I teased you about last weekend! Behold:
A juicer!!! My very kind coworker had a spare juicer sitting around that she brought in for me to use! I have big plans for this thing.
Sadly, its first use was for something that would turn out to be so, so wretched. The dreaded liver cleanse.
I juiced about 300 mL of grapefruit and lemon. Then I threw some ginger and one clove of garlic in. I added the 2 tbsp of olive oil.
Not ready at all for what's to come.
I took one sip, almost gagged, then remembered I forgot to dilute it with 200 mL of water. Surely that would fix it?!
Still recovering from the first sip, but willing to try again:
Blech. I only made it halfway through. Any more and I surely would have been sick.
Sorry, Joshi. I love your Detox and I'm sure your liver flush is very healthy and my liver would love it, but I will not be repeating this two more times (the detox calls for one a week). At least I tried, right?!
For dinner, I had some of the roasted veggies I got at the Carrot, along with some brown rice pasta with goat cheese.
Maybe not the most balanced meal (I don't see much protein there...), but cut me some slack! I had to cleanse my liver today, after all...
My Saturday night will consist of knitting and television. I may look like a 16-year-old, but I definitely act more like a 70-year-old. Night all!
