I dread the word...
It's a love hate relationship...
You guessed it, DETOX!
I was really really bad this holiday season. If I were to use the word indulgence it would be an understatement. If it was in front of me and it was edible, I ate it. Not good.
Every part of me noticed the change, my immune system (I had to miss almost a week of work for a stupid flu bug), my sleep patterns (or lack of them), my moods (sugar makes me cranky), my gut(we won't go there) & most importantly my thighs (those super cute bright red skinny jeans had to stay in the closet). Boy did I ever stray. Strayed so far I ate Twinkie's, several Twinkie's. I am so ashamed.
Thank goodness it's a new year and I feel like I can get a fresh start. Time to forgive myself and move forward. But let's be honest here, detoxing is NOT my favorite. It sucks. Do I like eating healthy whole foods, yes. Do I love eating fruits & veggies, yes. Do I love bacon and bread, yes. Woops, not part of the detox.
I do LOVE how I feel about 8 days in. Every part of my physical being loves it. I sleep a very sound 8-9 hours a night and wake feeling refreshed and ready to start my day. I seem to have super powers against all forms of cooties, or at least it seems that way. I feel unbelievable happy, now I don't know if that's because I am rockin those red skinny jeans or if healthier eating just effects my moods but either way it's a win/win situation. So I am going to buck up, gather my willpower and make it happen. I would love for you to join me. You will be amazed at how good you will feel. I will try to be better at documenting my journey so you can follow along.
This is now my 5th, 28 day detox. Over the course of 2.5 years I have shed 25 pounds & lost 4 pant sizes. Difficult yes but so worth it. So here's to the New Year and to a much better, healthier, happier me!
