So I am through with my two week cleanse. I did the Skinny Fox Detox and I can tell you that I really enjoyed it.
It consists of a loose leaf tea that you make every morning for two weeks and then a teabag tea that you drink every other night. So I can tell you that as of today, I have lost a total of 6 pounds which was pleasant surprise. I did the detox more to make my body feel better and less to lose weight so it was a nice side effect. I can also tell you that the detox recommends you avoid certain foods and that you increase intake of other foods. As I am trying to eat better anyway, I did pretty good with this. But I will say that they want you to avoid all dairy during this and well let me just say, I never really knew how much I loved cheese and how hard it was to avoid cheese. I think that I actually could have done better with the cleanse if I wasn’t so drawn to so many things that I shouldn’t have had. I even had a crazy cheat night that included cheese dip and margaritas.
Yes alcohol is frowned upon during the cleanse as well. I will definitely be trying this cleanse again. They recommend doing this particular two weeks cleanse every two to three months. I am feeling like this would be something really good for me every three months just for a quick reset. For me this was natural and pleasant. I would definitely recommend this for others. I would say that if you are interested in doing a cleanse, please do your research and stick with something that you can handle and if you actually like tea, I highly recommend this!

On another note, I have been able to push my workouts up by signing up for a 5K race the day before my birthday. I have two months to train and I’m super excited. I may not be running the race but I will definitely be doing the 5K with all of my friends that can make it. I’m so excited and can’t wait to give you more updates as my journey continues. What do you do to keep your workouts interesting? I’m off to make a grilled cheese sandwich!
