Who’s ready for some detox?
I know I am. I was just telling the 7am class that I did EXACTLY what I advise students not to do, leading into a nutrition challenge or detox… and that is: OVERINDULGE like crazy, be a total sloth, and make yourself sick heading into the detox. I seriously thought I had a pair of baby dinosaurs fighting in my belly yesterday. And I’m sore… not from all the training I did over the holidays… instead, I’m sore from NOT training. I did a little yoga and walked daily, but the combination of hardly any intense exercise and poor nutrition over the past two weeks has me feeling sluggish and icky. Sure, my first few days of eating clean will be tough – as my body flushes out all the crap I’ve put it through over the holidays. But I CAN’T WAIT for the energy spike, performance improvements and physique changes that will kick in by day five or six and get better and better as the month goes on. Have an awesome January! I wish you the best on your Whole30, or with whatever goals you pursue.
