It’s been one of those months. You know the months when your social and work calendar are overflowing, where the laundry has been piling up, the dishes seem to never be done and when you remember you have house guest coming you buy a bunch of plastic totes to throw your clutter into rather than trying to organize and really clean. With all this happening I slipped back into the days of too many coffees, too much sugar and WAY too many meals outside the home and oh yeah workouts? Um haven’t had one of those in awhile *hangs head in shame*.
I feel like crap.
I look a mess.
I’m feeling sluggish.
I need to recharge and reboot.
I don’t know what happened and I have no good excuse for falling so far from my healthy lifestyle. I mean seriously why do I do this to myself? That being said I’m owning it. I have been a lazy, crappy food eating, too busy lady and I need to slow down and recharge.
I anticipate the next few days are going to be rough as I try to quickly wean myself off the coffee and sugar tomorrow and then head into a cleanse for the next 10 days.
What this cleanse will include:
- Gluten Free Whole Grains
- Beans, Legumes & Lentils
- Nuts & Seeds
- Healthy Fats: organic, first-pressed, cold-pressed (no heat used to extract the oil) and unrefined extra virgin olive oil, coconut oil, and unrefined sesame oil. Also whole nuts and seeds or nut butter, the fats in whole foods such as avocados and coconuts.
- Natural sweeteners: Grade B Maple Syrup and Dates.
What won’t be included in the cleanse:
- Animal Products.
- Refined and Added Sugar.
Does this cleanse look familiar? Well it is the same exact one that I did in February. I honestly felt so amazing after this cleanse and it was just what I needed to kick my awful postpartum sugar addiction. Like before I am going to attempt to blog my way through the cleanse but we’ll see how that goes. You will at least get updates every few days and you can follow me on Instagram and Twitter where I will post photos and updates.
So who wants to join me? If anyone else would like to participate please let me know by shooting me a quick email firstname.lastname@example.org If there is any interest I would love to do a few Google Hangouts together so that we could talk about our goals, our challenges and have support to keep ourselves motivated and accountable.
