21 Day Sugar Detox – Update Week 2

This week is week two of my 21 Day Sugar Detox. It has been another busy week for me, with a lot of meals having to be quick or pre planned.

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.

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.

The 21 Day Sugar Detox Update – Week 1

Today marks day 7 of the 21 day sugar detox! I’ve made it through a week and honestly haven’t had too many issues in doing so.

I’m pleasantly surprised how easy it has been to follow the meal plan from the 21 day sugar detox cookbook. I mentioned in my first post before I started here that I was more the kind of person to cook what I felt like, and while I plan my meals my taste buds generally have final say.
