Ah the Chains That Bind (21 LBS in 21 Days)

You would think I'd be prepared for Day 1 of the 21 LB in 21 DAYS Detox Diet Cleanse but everytime I do it -it is like childbirth, I completely forget just how bad the process is. Day One really kicks your butt. The only way to prepare is to do the homework of chopping your fruits and veggies ahead and to get your additional supplements organized by daily doses so you get the proper nutritional value.  Even then, if you do not drink your water requirement during the day, you will have a physical crash.

The only thing I can do during day one is make it through the day. So that is what I did. I won't be blogging every day for the first few days,  I consider it a victory just to make it one day at at time. During this time, you must be proactiveand do your homework. Tonight I made my vegetable blended soup for lunch and evenings. Veggie/Fruit blended juice is prepared the night before and I added a fruit smoothie with 20 gms of protein to start the day so my brain cells fire correctly.
Hopefully this will get me to my next goal of 7 days cleansed and free.

If you are cleansing with me - let me know how you are doing. I'd love the company.

Walking in Health,

21 LBS in 21 DAYS Detox Diet

Well here we are again. I've created my shopping list based on the Martha's Vineyeard Detox Diet ,  and I'm cleaning everything out of my fridge that will get in the way of my moving forward. I hope that you can encourage me as I encourage you.

Please be wise if you do a cleanse to first, talk to your doctor, I did and I have his blessing. He wants me to address the lbs that have crept up during this past stressful year.  He ordered blood work drawn to make sure that I was healthy enough to go forward.  Unlike some, I'm going to have to work and cleanse (then come home and do housework), and that is no easy thing.

Next step, walk in knowledge. The book I'm using is 21 LBS in 21 DAYS.   There are many different ones on the market, this one has worked for me. The first three days were rough but by the time I got through the first seven days, I could already feel my body start to heal. I admit knowing the short term pain that is coming does not fill me with joy but I know that when I am done, there will be many benefits that will come, including a younger, healthier looking me.

So clean out your fridge and let's get shopping for our health.

Yours in Health,
