The Not Really a Detox Review

FOOD

First, the detox story. I did 5 days of what amounted to 2 smoothies per day and one gigantic salad using the Your Super superfood mixes. All told, it went fine. I wasn’t hungry or anything. Here’s the thing though. Food should taste good, and while I certainly am a fan of super foods – not when they taste icky. And I couldn’t get past the taste of some of these, and I’m doubtful I’ll use them overly much. The package came with a few other flavors I may check out, but for now – I’ll just stick to my normal healthy eats! And honestly – for a detox, I felt no different. That is either because my normal eating is pretty clean anyway or maybe because it’s more solids than I’m used to in a detox/cleanse (usually mine have been green juice fasts). So was it a detox? In the end – not for me.

Eats post-detox included a tofu green curry lunch date with my friend MM, a simple Mac n peas, and a dinner out with my boyfriend consisting of an Impossible fajita bowl! I also did try Burger King’s Impossible Whopper! It was good, though sat heavier than I like so won’t be a regular thing, but nice to know there’s the option!

FITNESS

Runs, yoga, and kickboxing! I went for 3 runs this week, a yoga class with my young one, and kickboxing today. Feels great to not have anything injured anymore!

LIFE

As predicted, it was a pretty awesome week. Also one that was incredibly social – much more so than normal.

Monday and Tuesday were pretty typical days – work, school stuff, dinner, etc. Wednesday and Friday I took off to do school stuff. While I am not behind any official schedule, I was behind on the pace I set for myself. I don’t deal well when things like that happen, so locking myself away for 2 days to focus was exactly what I needed. And it worked – I’m feeling so much better about everything.

Wednesday I went out for drinks with a coworker, which was nice. We had talked about it for months, and finally went out. Good times.

Thursday was supposed to be checking out a new brewery with a friend, but she’s under the weather and we’ll do it another day. Good though, because I was on a roll with school stuff that night.

Friday was out with my guy, first to our fav wine bar and then to get Tex Mex and his and hers margaritas! Strawberry jalapeño for me, cherry lime for him.

Saturday was yoga with R and then out with an old friend I haven’t seen a lot of. We went to a brewery near her house I had always wanted to check out (though I don’t like to drink much beer – too heavy). We then stopped at a place she’s a local and finished catching up.

Today has been school, laundry, the gym, and pretty soon, plan to start batch cooking for the week ahead. This week will be my last normal one for a bit – travels kick back up week after next. That’s okay though, I tend to like the chaos 🙂

You know, vs the BS being spouted about them causing mass murder…

I am a 45 yo busy career single mom and doctoral student attempting to find her inner athlete, be a gluten-free(ish) vegan, and find a way to balance it all without going crazy! I love to cook, read, run, box, do yoga, dance, travel, and learn as many new things as I can - which often gets me in trouble.... I am passionate about life in general, and if I didn't write about it, I'd probably implode.
