Wow, I’ve never tasted such delicious cucumbers as I did today.
Aaaannnnnddddd that’s a line I NEVER thought I would say. But I just did. And it was true. I started a three-day detoxification diet today with my wife. It’s been a desire of mine for several years, but one I never got around to putting much effort into actually trying.
Thankfully, my wife had a similar goal this year, so we decided to do it together. In case you’re interested, this is the specific detox diet we’re currently on: http://www.hungryforchange.tv/article/3-day-detox-plan
Honestly, the worst part is the breakfast drink…it tastes exactly like drinking sushi nori seaweed, and I happen to like sushi. All-in-all, it’s not been a bad first day. At the risk of TMI, the only real change I’ve noticed so far is a change in my “bathroom schedule”.
I did pare back a little on the workouts and running today and for the next two days, mostly because my diet is strict and I won’t have much for excess energy to burn. I clocked in at a mile today at a slower-than-normal pace of 6mph, and relegated my workout to just 50 pushups and 4:00 of wall sits.
In other goal-related news, a very good friend of mine agreed last night to run a sprint triathalon with me, as well as join in the quest to summit a 14’er this year. It seems my little project here has already inspired at least one person to make a stretch in 2013 and knock out a life goal or two.
Really, that’s all this is. This is my journal. I hope it inspires you. Make 2013 your year.
