Lets get back on track, shall we?

August 17, 2012

Hiiiiiiiii
So in the midst of my non blogging, I’ve been dealing with a slight injury and bad diet. Last week I was pushing through my stadium workout and slipped on a stair. I managed to jam my leg up into my pelvic wall, pulling my groin and twisting my knee. The frustration from the injury has propelled me to fall back into my emotional eating binges of chocolate chips and ice cream, and I feel like crap.  So, I called Sasha. Time for another cleanse.

This “cleanse” were doing is different from the previous one just a few weeks ago. I’m calling it more of a detox, more of a diet overhaul, and a “can i get my shit together please” type of diet. I felt so good after completing the last cleanse. The raw food fueled my body, cleansed my system. I wasn’t bloated, my hair was shiny, and I was sleeping like a baby every night. So why and how did I fall off the wagon? Its pretty simple actually: birthday cake, pasta, wine, and ice cream. My body wasn’t ready for me to reintroduce these things back to it. It’s like an addiction really, just one taste and I wanted the whole pint of ice cream.

So here’s the new plan. This time around Sasha and I agreed to incorporate more solid foods as well as 3 juice days instead of one.  For example, this morning’s breakfast consisted of a delicious red quinoa “cereal” with fig and walnut spread. It was so good and super filling.  Lunch is her infamous carrot and ginger soup, mineral broth to drink throughout the day, and home made nori rolls that she put together. Those I will have to take pictures of and send to you all. Cause its insane. She’s amazing.

The herbs and supplements are also different this time. Last cleanse I incorporated the Arise and Shine Cleanse 7 pack to assist with the detoxing and cleansing. This time around I’m using Blessed Herbs Colon Cleanse. Sasha heard amazing things about the Blessed Herb’s program, so we thought I’d give it a try.  I’ll take pictures of that as well when it comes in. (Just a side note, I paid for 2 day AIR on UPS for these things to get here yesterday… yesterday they were in South Carolina. I’M IN SHIPPING. I know how 2 day air works, and UPS- YOU FAILED. Idiots)

Like last time I weighed myself this morning and took a good look at myself in the mirror. I’m hoping for a little bit of weight loss, clearer skin, and less bloating. That would be ideal. Oh and also to get rid of my constant craving for frozen dark chocolate chips.

So I will keep you all informed, document this journey, and see where we end up next week. Next Saturday I will be on a plane, with my love, on our way to Hawaii. Not a bad thing to look forward to huh? 🙂
