Day 3: 21-Day-Detox

Wednesday, June 28, 2017

Today’s workout was rough. I went a little too hard on Day 1 and Day 2, so now my body is really paying for it. I think I overextended my right hip, but its nothing a good stretch won’t fix. Tomorrow, is a day of rest for me, so no workout until Friday. I am looking forward to taking a long bath with Epsom Salt and relaxing my muscles for the next 24+ hours.

It is important to stay active, but it is also important to rest, and that is the plan.

Although it has only been 3 days, I feel confident that I can maintain and #ftdi (follow the damn instructions) when it comes to what I can and cannot eat.

Here is a list of things I can eat: sweet potatoes, quinoa, brown rice, fruits and veggies (no corn, peas or white potatoes), green tea, gallon of water a day, vegan OT brown rice protein powder, nuts and seeds, grass fed beef, chicken, and turkey; seafood, and good fats (avocado oil, coconut oil, virgin olive oil).
