Brightspring 10 Day Detox: Day 1

Today I start my Brightspring 10-Day Detox! The past couple of days I’ve been going back and forth between wanting to indulge while I can (carbs! coffee! wine!) or if I should get a jump start on the Detox early. Let’s just say I did a little of the former and a lot of the latter.

I did a big shopping trip yesterday to get all the things I will need to make my Detox-approved meals for the next five days.

Grocery Trip

It looks so good, doesn’t it!! I have to say, though, that I cheated a little (already! is there no hope for me??) with some of the ingredients, like the organic chicken broth. I was supposed to make my own broth and soup with a leftover whole chicken, and while this is something I do regularly, we are in the middle of moving right now, my kitchen is packed, and I needed to simplify. That is also the reason I bought the more expensive broccoli crowns and pre-cut butternut squash. I normally don’t buy pre-cut veggies, but with my kitchen in random boxes throughout the house, I need to make concessions.

The cost for the food I bought specifically for the Detox was $42.00. That includes enough to at least share with my family of 4 and enough chicken for 2 meals for all of us (I’m not kidding myself, my kids will probably be eating chicken fingers or pizza some nights this week because of the move). This does not include the quart of green smoothie that I will be receiving each day as part of the Detox!

Do you want a before picture? Here ya go. I am NOT announcing my current weight or inches for the whole interwebz to see, but I’ll let you know at the end if there has been a change. I’ve pointed out areas that I would love to see a change in.
