“A mixture of fruits and vegetables of your choice. Any amount, any quantity. No bananas yet. No potatoes today.”
Day 3 is, so far, my favorite. I actually enjoyed the day because I finally had a balanced dose of both sweet / salty tastes in my mouth. Yesterday was really hard because by the end of the night I wanted to throw up all the raw stuff I ate. I began tasting the earth…literally! I’m so glad that my menu today gave me exactly the resurrection that I needed. I guess it’s true when they say that third time’s the charm!
What I ate:
- Half a cantaloupe
- 1 bunch of red grapes
- 1 bunch of green grapes
- 1/2 apple pear
- 1 Fuji apple
- 3/4 a bunch of baked asparagus seasoned with 1/2 tbsp of olive oil and pepper
- 2 cups broccoli and 10 oz. white mushrooms stir-fried and seasoned with 1 tbsp olive oil, 1 tbsp garlic and a pinch of seasoned salt
- 2.5 liters of water
- (Again, no GM Wonder soup for me today. I don’t think I’m eating any of that soon.)
What I did:
- 40 minutes on the Precor Elliptical (Total distance covered: 3.30 miles / 368 cal)
- 8 reps of 3 lbs weights
I know I said that I wouldn’t work out today and ‘nurse’ my difficult period (my back pains are terrible!), but I decided to suck it up and burn some calories. No excuses — I just need to keep on moving forward if I want to see results.
