Do I feel I need to detox? No, not really. We eat pretty cleanly as it is. I just thought it would dovetail nicely with my kick-off to train for the 2016 PG Triathlon. So, over the course of the next three weeks, you will be seeing more recipes posted that are detox-friendly.
Here's the scoop on the triathlon: my husband (rider), one of our best friends (swimmer) and I (runner) are determined to do a Take 3 on the Olympic distance relay in September 2016. We did it in 2007 as Team P, B, and J when P was supposed to be Pia running. But after they registered, she went and got pregnant. So, despite the fact that I was doing the complete sprint distance on my own the following day, I ran the 10K portion of the Olympic distance for them.
In 2009, we did it as Team The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly. Don't ask who was which! We couldn't agree.
Now, what will be seven years and many pounds heavier, we are happy to be "Team Level Zero" for 2016! Yes, there is a level zero and we're at it.
So, I'm using the 21-Day Detox as a more purposeful way of eating and shopping. Besides, they say that if you do anything for 3 weeks, it becomes a habit. So, I'm thinking that this will simply kick-start Team Level Zero's training regimen. Wish me luck!
