How lucky am I?

I just registered for the 2012 Disneyland Half Marathon.  That means that within a year I will be going to Disney World and Disneyland to run!  How awesome is that?

Detox Day 10

Detox phase: 2
Foods I can eat: Fruits, Vegetables, Nuts, Seeds, Fish and legumes
Cheats: 6 (Arg)

What I ate today:
Breakfast: Berry Smoothie
Lunch: whoops
Snack: Carrots and hummus
Dinner: Salmon and Bok Choy


So I'm on day 10 and I am crashing and burning pretty bad.  I'm not going to lie I felt like crap until I started cheating a bit and then my life became worth living again.  Before cheating I was STARVING all the time and all I wanted to do was eat tons and tons of crap, but then I ate a couple (literally probably like 5-6) potato chips and my entire outlook changed.  Suddenly my life wasn't about obsessing about food and what I could and could not eat, I was instead able to see my life clearly.  So yes I may have had a few slips (said chips, 2 spoonfuls of pb&j, 2 x a quarter pint of ice cream and I can't remember the last one) but I have been sticking to it besides that.  I am not going to totally fall off the wagon and abandon the whole thing, but if I need someth…

Detox Day 4

Detox phase: 1
Foods I can eat: Fruits, Vegetables, Nuts and Seeds
Cheats: 0 (YAY ME!!!)

What I ate today:
Breakfast: Green Machine Smoothie
Lunch: Butternut Squash Soup
Snack: dried fruit and nut balls
Dinner: Roasted Red peppers, Cauliflower, Sweet potato and toasted almonds

Okay so I am on day 4 of the first week of the Whole Living Action Plan 2012 Detox.  How do I feel?  Well I feel hungry, all the time.  I want fries. SO. BADLY!  But I have also been sick so I have been getting along okay since I've been not eating a lot anyway.  Thankfully though the recipes they suggest are amazing (the Butternut Squash soup is sooo good) so I haven't been having a hard time finding something to eat.  Also I eat a lot of fruits and veggies anyway so my house is normally always stocked with yummy things.I miss dairy, gluten and added sugar so much, but I feel like I have made it this far I need to keep going.

Strangely I don't feel much different physically.  I was supposed to feel…

Challenge 1 - Accomplished

So I did it!  I had a great time and raised a whopping $3140 for the Leukemia and Lymphoma society of Canada.  I feel great to have been able to set a goal  and work my butt off to accomplish it!

I was a bit slower than I had intended due to a knee injury that I am still dealing with, but I managed to finish in 3 hours and 4 minutes.  This run was amazing.  It is so well organized and there are such great entertainment throughout the race that I almost forgot I was running (or walking).  If you have ever wanted to try a marathon or a half I highly recommend a Disney event!

I had such a great time at this run that I have decided to continue my running and have signed up for a 10k in April and another half in August!  Yay!  I'm so excited.  If only I COULD run right now... I am in physio for an ACL and IT band injury and it is making it hard to train, but what can ya do?

Since I'm injured and can't run I've decided to try another first.  I am going to start a detox on M…
