Detox Wrap Up & New Challenge

On a scale from 1 to 10 (1 meaning totally failed and 10 meaning didn’t mess up once), I rate this detox at a 5.5. I did well about half the time but still have lots of room for improvement. I feel like I’m getting back ┬áin the groove of a more healthy way of eating after vacation, which was the goal in the first place. I dropped a few pounds but also had more cheat meals and snacks than I’d like. My headaches got a little better after the first few days, but I never felt a difference in energy level like I did the first time I did a detox. Probably because I didn’t detox as successfully as I did the first time…

However, in 2 weeks from today, I am the maid of honor in one of my best friend’s wedding and have a little black dress to fit into. At the start of the summer (June), I was in my cousin’s wedding and bought my bridesmaid’s dress at David’s Bridal. This next bridesmaid’s dress for the August 17th wedding was also purchased at David’s Bridal in one size smaller than the June dress. It currently fits but would fit even better if I could drop about 5 pounds. 2 weeks, 5 pounds? Challenge accepted!

 

I'm on the far left. Ignore the dorky facial expressions...this was a silly shot.
