Cleansing and Loving it

August 20, 2012

Not sure if you’ve noticed, but I’ve been lacking on the posts lately. Especially on the cleansing posts. I’ve been “cleansing” since Friday… and its Monday now. And it honestly hasn’t been that bad.  Having gone through something similar just a few weeks ago, I could anticipate the emotional and physical changes that were to come. I knew what delicious food I would be eating, how much sleep I would need, how I would feel during my workouts, all of it. So far nothing has come as a surprise. Except for yesterday. When I got my colonic.

This marks my third colonic thus far on this journey of health. And it’s definitely my worst yet. I’m not going to get into the gross details, but it was painful. Not just painful during, but for many hours after. Apparently colonics are the gift that keeps on giving. Keep this in mind when you schedule your next colonic. Keep the rest of your day free, your house calm, and your couch comfy. I happened to run errands after mine, and that was a mistake 😉

Just to walk you through the cleanse thus far, I’ve been following the Blessed Herb’s “Better” colon cleansing plan, which means I take 5 of their “detox” packets with water or apple juice a day. (I opted for the ginger program as that best suited the way my body functions…although it tastes like butt) Right before bed I take 2-3  “digestive stimulator” pills to help things get moving for the next day. Its a lot less stuff to take than the Arise and Shine, but much worse tasting.

I haven’t weighed myself since I started on Friday but I will tomorrow and each morning until Friday.

As for the wonderful food I’m consuming…

Chai Almond Milk and Banana smoothies —> yes, you read that correctly

Watermelon Gazpacho

Melon/Chia pudding

Pear/Apple/Parsley detoxing juice –> Seriously, she should bottle this

Pink Balloons –> This one made an appearance in the last cleanse, and is as good as ever

Huge Ass Salads

Green Goddess Soup –> This also made an appearance in the last cleanse and is by far my fav

Chia Cooler Cocktails

Home-made Raw Nori Rolls

Quinoa “cereal” with fig and walnut

It’s amazing how good you can feel just by eating delicious, nutritious, natural food. All of this in its raw state.

The cleanse will last pretty much till Friday, then its onto Hawaii with the bf and his fam.

Hope you’re having a wonderful Monday!!
