5 days of Detox Delight – a full review

After last night’s huge Christmas feast, I realized that I still owe you guys the second part of my 5-day Detox Delight review. Perfect timing, huh? For those just tuning in now, you can read about my motives to detox and the first 2 days HERE. For everyone else, let me sum it up in one short sentence: I’d do it again in a heart beat!
There has been a lot of controversy about “detoxing” and trust me, I’ve read articles both pro and con. I’ve done my research and decided for myself, that I personally wanted to try it and make up my own opinion. I am no scientist and by all means, I can not explain what exactly went on in my body during those 5 days. I do not know if toxins actually left my body, or if the liver and kidneys already do a good enough job. All I know is that I loved the results and felt amazing. Some people go on yoga retreats, others head to Las Vegas to wind down. Some like to treat themselves with a delicious burger or pizza, others detox. It is easy as that. Everyone gets to make their own decision on how they want to spend their time (or money) and treat their body. I decided to drink juices for 5 days together with my best friend, and guess what: I liked it.

HEALTHY LIVING: time to detox

Some of you may have already spotted a little detox-preview on my Instagram account (@vickyheiler), and so I thought it was time to give you a more detailed update after completing my first 2 days of nothing but liquids with Detox Delight. First things first: I know detoxing is experiencing a certain hype right now, and I know some of you are already sick of hearing about it. However, I am the kind of person that always needs to experience things in order to form an opinion. I don’t listen to judgements about other people, I try to get to know them. I don’t believe others when they say somethings doesn’t taste good, I like to try it myself. Naturally the same goes for detoxing!

HEALTHY LIVING: my 50-minute workout

It’s been a while since I last shared some of my workouts with you, so I wanted to give you a little update. Recently I’ve been running about 5-7km twice per week and have tried to hit the gym 1-2 times per week. Today was super rainy, so I decided to do a bit of interval training on the treadmill and work on my arms and abs. Personally, I feel that I can see the quickest results by combining high intensity interval training with weight training and some low intensity cardio training throughout the week. Here is what today’s 50-minute workout looked like:

RECIPE: sugar free chocolate chia pudding

I seriously used to hate breakfast! Well, maybe not hate (that is a pretty strong word), but simply didn’t feel hungry that early in the day and saw no point in eating without the desire to. So coffee on the go it was. However, since I’ve been working from home for the past 2 months, I’ve made it a point to start my day right with a healthy breakfast. Nothing big, but all the more nutritious to get my metabolism going. I usually have greek yogurt with fresh fruit or homemade bircher müsli, but recently I discovered my love for chia pudding, thanks to Kathi. I’ve been having it for the past week or so and am slightly obsessed, trying different variations on a daily basis. Today I wanted to share one of my favorite creations with you guys: Sugar free chocolate chia pudding! It literally tastes like nutella … just sayin’!
