21 Day Sugar Detox – Update Week 3

Well week three sees the end of my second 21 day sugar detox. To be honest, I’m a little glad that it is over. I knew I was over it the other day, when I realised I was talking myself out of (in my head) having an orange. Not such a big deal really, but it made me think about how many days left and I usually am not even thinking about it.

This week I have been flat out with work and study commitments and it has effected the amount of effort I have put into my meals. Its seen me more salads than I really am happy with. I know though that we all go through these times. So its reassuring to get through it eating as well as I have. I have had to eat out and not all meals have been my usual choices, but they are still good choices where I am able. No matter how you choose to eat, as long as you make the best choices you can then you are staying true to yourself.

Here is what has been on my plate this week:

Holiday’s over…Its Detox Time.

I have just got home from my much needed ‘working’ holiday. I enjoyed 10 relaxing days with my beautiful family in a sunnier place. With my recent study and work load I really needed the break. In that time I did attend the Problogger event, which while crammed full of useful and inspiring material, was two very full on days (possibly a little harder for me as I was in holiday mode). I also managed to take a little time to celebrate my birthday in amongst it all.

I know, I know, my holidays are as busy as regular life lol.

But, there was also lots of time laughing with my cherubs, exploring, and eating. Continue reading
