HIP Detox: Day 7, Last Day!, Written by: Kayte Corrigan

I was up early for my last salt flush/faux broth. I wasn’t going to let my day be burdened waiting for nature to call. Full of energy and in a great mood, I headed out for kickboxing. I still a little weak when it came to strength exercises, but nothing was stopping me from doing my best. I needed a couple bathroom breaks, especially after the jump rope warm up. Overall, it was a great sweat, great workout.

The rest of the day was spent in productive mode while I wrapped up loose ends for Monday deadlines and ran errands. I was extremely focused, full of go and beginning to feel like my old self. Not my old self from before the detox, but my old self from before stress and fatigue had taken over my life. I guess, in a sense, I feel younger, yet wiser. So I’ll be turning 26 in December instead of 29.

While I was running errands, my guy chopped up produce for our last Veggie Power Bowl, and enjoyed while watching 60 Minutes, a Sunday staple of ours. Occasionally we’d treat ourselves to ice cream for the program, but the bowl of green was just as satisfying. And I’m not puffing that statement. I didn’t have one craving for something sweet all day.

With the elixir all gone and sipping my last cup of tea, I took an inventory of how I felt. Lighter, thinner, satisfied, calm, sharp, and clear headed.

Food: Orange, blueberry smoothie with protein and spinach, raw pumpkin and sunflower seeds, Veggie Power Bowl with quinoa red onions, zucchini, broccoli, spinach + elixir, water with lemon, detox tea.

Symptoms: acne (clearing up!), sleep interruption
