Have you been feeling tired or exhausted lately?
Do you depend on that coffee fix to get you through your day?
Have you been getting headaches or consistent muscle-aches?
Are you extra moody?
Is your immunity low?
Have you noticed a little extra weight around your waistline that crept on to your body over the holidays?
Do you cope with sugar and junk food?
Then it is time to DETOX!
I have been feeling all of the above and more. I was dragging through my days, depending on coffee to get me through, and having trouble sleeping at night. I also got hit pretty hard by that nasty flu bug that has been going around. As a result it has been hard for me to focus and even more challenging more me to concentrate on my studies and retain any information.
I have known for a while that I need to make some changes I was just overwhelmed with where to start. The start of this new year has given me inspiration and the energy I need to make some big changes. The theme of my year is “Transform Your Life.”
I have been pondering the idea of doing some kind of cleanse or detox for awhile. A little over a year ago I followed the Isagenix plan for several months which is a cleanse-based plan with products. I got pretty good results, but the monthly products cost me a small fortune every month.
I was thinking about going to GNC or my local Co-op to pick up a detox kit, but I think that I will just start small with a plan that is easily accessible and uses healthy foods that anyone can pick up from the grocery store.
Here’s My Plan:
- Follow Dr. Oz’s 3 Day Detox Cleanse. http://www.doctoroz.com/article/dr-ozs-3-day-detox-cleanse-one-sheet
- Cut out all dairy products (except eggs).
- Exercise Consistently.
- Organize my life.
I like Dr. Oz’s 3 day plan because 3 days sounds do-able to me. It is not fasting for 3 days or doing something super extreme. The plan involves a breakfast, lunch, and dinner smoothie, multi-vitamin, probiotic, and omega-3 supplement, oh and green tea. Another perk about the plan is that you end your day with a lavender detox bath!
Another thing that appeals to me is how organized the plan is. Everything fits onto one sheet and it makes sense! I also love that a grocery shopping list is included on this one-pager.
In addition to detoxing I am also going to start organizing my life. I have been pretty sick and out of it lately and it shows in my surroundings. Time for me to clean the kitchen, nix the clutter, and make our house into a home!
Today was my 1st day of the detox and so far I feel great! I feel like I can actually do this, but it would be WAY better if you decide to detox with me too!
Comment below and let me know if you will be joining me on this journey to better health!
Love, Joy, and Blessings Always,
