Day 2

Day 2 is brought to you by apple crumble. “What, what, whaaa” you say? Don’t worry I have people to share it with so it’s only the equivalent to less than a handful of nuts. They are almonds. This stuff is pretty great. With dairy being back in the game, that means kwwhipp cream on top. I forgot about how filling milk is. If I put milk in my coffee, I do not need to eat until lunch. Thank goodness for level 2. In the beginning (I can’t ever say that without thinking of Genesis)I thought, level 3 is the most hardcore, obviously that is the one I need to do.

I think the levels are more about being honest with yourself. I love cheese, and I like milk in my coffee. I really enjoy yogurt and cottage cheese. With dairy in my life, it’s easy to say, “I’ll have the cheese plate” for dessert. Then I don’t feel left out during dessert time. It also does not wreak havoc on me.

It’s day two of for reals 21 DSD and I’m feeling pretty ok. Within the next coming days we will find out if it was the cashews that leached my energy.

As for life updates, we are in the new house. That’s the back yard, with the local dog beach and best surf break around, behind the fence pictured above.(weeeeeeeeeeeeeee) Hearing the ocean at night makes me giggle. Seeing the sunset on the ocean is pretty glorious. The beagles love their backyard and they have a trial at doggie daycare on Thursday. Let’s hope Duncan can keep his humping under control for the day. He’s had over excitement issues in the past. Hopefully, we can finally find out if the beagles have an “american howl”. That’s all for now, I love the comments. I can see you guys are reading this from all over the world. So umm… say Hi!

Again we go!

I stopped blogging. I felt crappy and I turn into a recluse when I don’t feel well. I was really perturbed as to why I didn’t feel amazing.It was day 18 and I realized I was eating food I shouldn’t have been the whole time! The offenders: cashews, sweet potatoes, arrowroot flour, and grapeseed oil.

I was eating cashews like it was my job. Apparently, eating more than a handful will put the brakes on weight loss, and it can start to mess with your ability to absorb nutrients. It really isn’t only cashews here’s some interesting info from Mark’s Daily Apple on nuts:

I am the person he talks about. If you tell me it’s ok to eat something, I will go “nuts” on it. I was feeling really tired regardless of how much sleep I was getting. I think I am going to try to just avoid the nuts for a while. I also read an article about how they are not good for your skin?!

Anyway I have started over today! If anyone would like to start the 21 Day Sugar Detox again with me that would be awesome. This time I am doing Level 2 which includes dairy.

I will win this sugar battle. Unfortunately, sugar is more addictive than cocaine. The havoc that it reeks on your body is terrible.

Tonight for dinner I made grilled lettuce, with chicken topped with brie. Lamb and bacon wrapped asparagus. Lots of protein :D.
