Day 7 of Metabolic Detox



I was in such a dilemma on whether or not I should have gone for a Saturday morning WOD, knowing I would have to teach a class right after in the morning and prepare for a full day of course teaching the next.  Ed from Coastal Fitness reminded me of a key point in this detox – STRESS REDUCTION.  Sure I would have been OK during the workout, during the WOD and ride off my adrenaline the next day but I know I would’ve been toast by Sunday evening and screw myself possibly for Monday’s work and WOD.

So sensible I opted to be and took day 7 off.  The only physical activity done for the day was teaching a TRX Circuit class at Flex and grocery shopping.

Since I had more time to myself on day 7, I was roaming Instagram more though after 5 photos of people’s deliciousyummyscrumptioustastywhymusttheylooksogood food, I gave up…

Rule of thumb – if you’re gonna be on this detox, STAY AWAY from Instagram -_-


Question of the day was how am I going to celebrate my first meal off detox and perhaps it was a good thing my course was scheduled on Day 8 because I might have had lots of crazy visuals of pancakes dancing in chocolate rain on creamy gelato with a band of fried chicken drumsticks.  Going through a week of this and just to throw it away for seconds of weakness? NOT HAPPENING! So sensible Emily let professionalism take over and planned to avoid a chance of food coma while teaching an eight hour course.

So it turns out I was just looking forward to having garlic in my veggies and the texture of salmon on day 8, more than anything else.


…and coffee

I've been told that I'm tiny but tough, so I must have gotten SOME things right. On the inside, I feel like a mushy marshmellow who's a hopeless romantic and find corny cute. Writing "About Me" sections had evolved in the past x years of online profiles, currently, it sits at me still hungry for enlightening experiences and insightful traveling, particularly with human connections. My story at full length on the "About" page :) Thank you for poking around!
