14 Day Sugar Detox – Days 13 and 14

It’s come to a close and I only cheated once. We went to friend’s house on Saturday (Day 13) because their cherry tree was bearing fruit and while climbing in the tree picking cherries I ate a few. Okay… I had about 20 or so, but at least it was just fruit.

On Friday (Day 12), I started tracking my food using MyFitnessPal, I remembered I had an account from years back and was able to log back in. I’ll use it to track my food and hopefully change some of my bad eating habits. So far the results have been quite interesting… so far, first couples of days I have left 900-1100 calories each day unconsumed.

Now that the 14 Day Sugar Detox is over, I’ll add back in fruits, carbs (rice and potatoes) and peanuts & cashews. I’m going to avoid white and brown sugars and just add in Grade B Maple Syrup and Honey back into rotation. Then add back in everything, but just in moderation. I do want to make some homemade chocolate ice cream this summer.

My Expo 10k race went well. I ran much faster than I thought I would but my quads and triceps really hurt. Full Race Report in near future.

Now that’s over, I’m glad that I did it. It was a nice little “reset” program that will hopefully get my eating back in order or at least on the right track. I have to not starve myself because I don’t want to take the time to figure out the nutritional facts or just stressed out that I’m not getting the exact numbers. I tend to do that.
