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:

The 21 Day Sugar Detox – Week 3 (Final Week)

This week was my final detox week. I felt confident going into the third week that it would be as easy as the first two weeks, and it was.

I talked about cooking a few more of my own meals when I did my week 2 round up, but the week turned out busier than I’d expected, and so sticking fairly close to the meal plan provided in the 21 Day Sugar Detox Cookbook actually helped. When you are time poor having the meal plan and recipes within easy reach can be a huge tool to utilise, to make life easier.
