I am hating the detox. No bread, starch (including seemingly innocent vegetables like artichokes and corn), sugar (including booze) for fourteen days. It's supposed to make me feel all energized and amazing. The best you've ever felt! claims my trainer. But the ugly reality is a constant, low-grade headache and stomachache, inability to get to sleep, frayed nerves, grumpiness, fatigue and boredom. I can't stand it. I think I'm just naturally naughty. But after four hellish days of this, there's no way I'm giving in. Well, maybe one very big martini. Then it's back to the broccoli. For now.
