1/18: Meals, fitness, 7 days down

Hi! Happy Sunday! Hope you’re enjoying the weekend!


We are officially 7 days down for our little detox. The verdict so far: we both feel amazing. While we already know which staples will eagerly welcomed back into the rotation (cough wine cough dessert), we both feel great after this little reboot. We’ve been focusing on fresh produce, protein, fruit, and natural sweeteners (dates, banana, a little honey or maple syrup) and it’s been nice to get back to basics. I’ve been keeping track of everything so I can post all of the details when we’re finished.
