It was one-too-many late night grilled cheese sandwiches that brought me to this place. Well, grilled cheese, potato chips, cake, bread and butter, chicken fingers, honey mustard, and Ben and Jerry’s, to be fair, but the 1am grilled cheese was the straw that broke the camel’s back. It’s been real, and it’s been fun, but…
It’s too much.
I need a reset.
My body wants a break!
Thankfully, I already have the perfect solution. If you’ve been a longtime follower of this blog, you might remember that I completed a 12-day cleanse in 2014…a cleanse with strict dietary guidelines, but that also encouraged regular meals and zero calorie counting. Enter (again) the Wild Rose D-Tox System.
For the next 12 days, I’ll be making almost all of my meals at home, quitting sugar, dairy, flour, and Diet Coke, and–*hopefully*–pressing the reset button for my body.
I’m looking forward to getting to eat lots of fresh fruit, renewing my love affair with almond butter, and breaking free of the insane sugar cravings I’ve been dealing with/perpetuating over the last six weeks or so. The last time I did this cleanse, I lost four pounds, improved my digestion, got better sleep, discovered food sensitivities, and totally changed the way I ate, so I have high hopes that this will be a success!
I’m officially kicking off Detox v 2.0 tomorrow, so today is going to be spent grocery shopping, menu planning, meal prepping, and, truthfully, likely feasting on all of the cheesy/carby/unhealthy goodness that I’m voluntarily breaking up with for the next two-ish weeks. Pizza, anyone? Milkshakes, maybe? Seriously though, I’m actually really excited to revisit Wild Rose. It’s going to be a bit of a challenge with summer travel and temptations in the mix, but I know that it will be worth it in the end.
Expect to see at least a couple of cleanse-related blog posts and IG food shots from 7/11 – 7/22 as I attempt to keep myself accountable!
