Detox - Day 1

My pre-Gorgeous Skin detox is off and running. I prepared well by drinking an extraordinary amount of wine last night. Yeah, that was a great idea. Moving right along...

The program goes something like this:

Breakfast: Freshly squeezed juice
Snack: Protein shake
Lunch: Steamed veggies
Snack: Protein shake
Dinner: Vegetable broth (made this yesterday) & more fruit juice

The juice du jour: Mango, lime, kiwifruit & melon with coconut water.

Exercise during this phase is limited to a brisk walk, a bike ride or similar - nothing too strenuous, as I'm likely to be feeling more than a bit crap. Thank goodness it's only three days; by then, I suspect I'll be going quietly insane.

To make up for the lack of fun in my food and training, I've planned a relaxing and indulgent day for myself. This morning I'm off for a one-hour aromatherapy massage, followed by a ninety-minute facial. It's a tough life. :)

Not bad so far. Based on past experience with detox-y type things, I expect Friday to be fairly unpleasant. Stocking up on paracetamol now... Yes, I know that's not really allowed, but I'm no martyr. ;o)

That juice looks particularly yummy!

You're a braver woman than me :)

Kathryn, I'm loving the juices!

Hehe, Liz...if it was any longer than 3 days, there's no way I'd even think about it. Can't wait for Saturday...
