I'm a failure

Day 2 of my attempt at a detox and I'm already a failure.  I want meat for lunch, specifically turkey,and I know I'll give in to it.

Most of the time, when my body tells me it wants something, and it's healthy, I'll have it.  Really, what's the point in depriving yourself?  And it's just turkey, not a Big Mac.

In all honesty, Day 1 wasn't really successful either.  I had a nutrigrain bar for breakfast, a veggie burger and some butternut squash soup for lunch, then some fruit later on in the day as a snack.  Then a string cheese.  Dinner was eggs with spinach and mozz and two TJs potato pancakes, then for dessert I had to have some of the leftover berry crumble that I had made over the weekend.

I guess it's not horrible, but it's surely not a detox.  Screw the term.  :)  Let's just say I'm trying to eat less crap.

Total side note:  Hey spin instructors, have any of you used "in the air tonight" by Phil Collins?  If so, what did you do?  I took a class that used it, but he was boring and I wasn't impressed.  Good song, just not sure if it's too slow/boring.  Thanks!

Jessica- my spin instructor has used that Phil Colins song and it was awesome. It was a hill and after the "bang, bang, bang" part we upped the resistance, stood in 3rd and went as fast as possible.

Awesome, thanks for the suggestion!

Hey Jessica-I have not used the Phil Collins version, but Nonpoint does a remake of it which I have used as a steep climb. Love it, but then again, I'm a big fan of remakes. Oh, and I probably wouldn't last 1 hour on detox!
