Spring Cleaning

Weeks upon weeks of horrible eating has added a winter layer to my spring wordrobe and an all over feeling of sludge to my daily routine.  It began with the Paris trip.  Breakfast and dinner was pre-selected for us and was loaded with breads, cheese and more breads accompanied by tons of carbs.  Being diagnosed with PCOS almost ten years ago my body tends to mock and tease the “carb click” so when they get a chance to take revenge, I pay heavily.

Then comes TechEd.  Granted there was a bowl of fruit at breakfast every morning which was very nice, but the rest was conference food.  Granted the last night the baked chicken was very tasty.  Then the snack bar…  M&Ms, salty goodness, pretzels… You get the idea.  And I NEVER drink soda but for some reason every year it never fails I end of grabbing Mountain Dew cans from the fridges between sessions.  I still have not figured that one out.  I will not drink another until next year.

So when I finally strolled onto the plane Friday morning with a swollen belly, headache and my internal organs auditioning for Carnegie Hall I knew I had to do something drastic to get back on track and just push the flush nozel.

Once I get picked up from the airport we head to the grocery store and fill up the cart on fruits and vegetables.  Not to cook or snack on but to juice.


I did a three day detox approximately 1 1/2 years ago and it was one of the toughest things I had ever done, and I’ve given birth to two babies without pain meds.

But I emerged from that experience feeling great.  I was not in it for weight loss, I wanted to reboot my taste buds.  I’m a self-proclaimed chocoholic and spaghetti lover.  Neither of which are beneficial to a PCOS victim but even those with the best of will power call succumb to both of these.

Which leads me to this decision.  But this time around I want to go for five days.  I’ve heard you need to stick it out for longer than three days to get the full benefit so I thought I would try it out for myself.

This will be my virtual account of the steps, feelings, and final outcome of this nickel length journey.

Good or bad I’ve made my decision and I’m sticking to it.
