Post Detox Week

First day after the 7 Day Detox should have been like Thanksgiving. Instead I celebrated the first meal post detox with a McDonald’s brewed coffee and Salmon with veggies at 8am on a Sunday morning *fist pump* Adrenaline kicked in as the usual pre-course psych up as I prepared to power through a 9 hour…

Day 7 of Metabolic Detox

“BE SENSIBLE” 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…

Day 6 of Metabolic Detox

This is it… …this is where I know that seductive white light of TASTE is getting close and it is only a matter of days (or hours) before the willpower starves and dies I DREAMT OF TERIYAKI CHICKEN AND SALMON DON WTF? I have NEVER in my life remember dreaming of food, EVER. Needless to…

Day 5 of Metabolic Detox

Day 2 of Metabolic Detox

Was Day 2 any easier than Day 1? Honestly, it wasn’t as difficult as I had feared…but it wasn’t any easier either. 1) Energy levels – Sleepy by noon This made me downed 4 cups of green tea but on the bright side, I was sitting less since I felt like getting up every half…

Day 1 of Metabolic Detox

The word “detox” is probably one of the words my fellow Malaysian’s dislike most…because that means not eating GOOD (like, REALLY GOOD) Malaysian food – which might mean the end of the world to some. I was apprehensive about doing another detox since my 3 day cleanse of water, coconut water and green tea.  I…
