I’m not sure if I told you this but my husband is doing this 12 weeks with me. His job is not physically demanding, but it is mentally draining and very long hours. He’s stuck on a train for 10 hours a day. So the other day I prepped 6 salads and 12 egg muffins for him. It took 40 minutes start to finish and the best part?? I think he was very happy with me.
I got really lucky with this guy…. He supports me in everything I do and joins me for the ride. I always tell him it was because I cast a love spell on him in high school. HAHA!
He said he was feeling forgetful, irritable and tired last week. These feelings are totally normal when you are going through this detox process. Detox from all the processed foods. A couple of years ago when I did this I was detoxing so hard, even though I wasn’t eating a bunch of sweets, cakes, or pastries either…. I had serious brain fog, forgetfulness, headaches. But it DOES get better. You get to a point where you feel so good you cannot believe you didn’t do it sooner and you never want to go back to feeling bad.
You know what my mindset was going into this?
- I’m NOT quitting. I WILL finish. I do not care if it’s around Christmas, New Years AND my anniversary.
- I am STRONG and I CAN do hard things.
- I am going to feel amazing after accomplishing this challenge. I am going to be so proud of myself.
- I will focus on my health. Food is fuel, creating good habits for life, my daily choices, these things I will do for MYSELF.
