Day one weigh in: 138.9
Day two weigh in: 133.8
What I feel is my healthy weight: 110 - 115
Day two! Wow...all I can say is I must have been retaining a ton of water--a 5.1 pound weight loss in 24 hours!!. While that's extremely encouraging, I don't expect to see results like all five days.
Day two went much better than day one. I didn't even bother with the decaf coffee. Instead I took advantage of the extra time and slept in 20 extra minutes! I felt pretty alert all day. I made sure I brought more food to work so I wouldn't get hungry. I had a luncheon to attend today, so that was a challenge. I had to surpass a lot of cheese and brownies--and settle for just a simple salad with a tiny spoon of dressing (I know it had sugar in it, and I didn't want to ruin my whole detox).
I did start to get a mild headache around 3pm--which is typically the time of day I go in search of chocolate or an afternoon cup of coffee. I'm drinking a lot of herbal tea. I just like having warm liquid to carry around in my mug!
I did manage a workout this evening (unlike last night when I vegged on the couch all evening with a headache). Mark and I did the fitness trail at a local park. It's a mile trail with about 12 strength training stations. I got through it but felt tired without any caffeine in my system. I'm certainly hoping that improves as I get use to being free of caffeine. I'm running a 5k on Saturday, so maybe that will go a little better. At least I got out there and burned some calories--worked some muscles.
I'm still looking forward to adding dairy back in on Saturday. A decaf latte (sugarless, of course) sure sounds good.
