The 3 Day Detox

I can hardly believe it’s been over 4 months since my last post….I’d keep meaning to write and time just got away from me…or it would just get pushed to the end of the list…again!  Life has been busy though…I’ve picked up more work and am trying to stay more on top of cleaning (trying is the key word here) which really does take a lot more effort.   Right now, I need to go get some sleep, but I just had to write aimlessly about something I’m excited about….

Getting Healthy!  This is what I’ve been working on…  Over the last 2 years, I have somehow put on about 10-15 pounds.  I didn’t really even notice it until lately b/c I think I put it on very slowly…but “BOOM!” there it was all of a sudden and I slowly realized I had to change.  So, my sister, my mom and I all went on this “Dr Oz 3 Day Smoothie Detox” which was absolutely awful!!!  I found it on pinterest and thought “wow this looks really cool and good!”.  I mean, I absolutely love smoothies…but these weren’t smoothies…they were a whole blender full of pulp and some juice.  At one point during the detox, I actually thought about getting on pinterest and making a board called “Pins I Don’t Recommend” or “Pins I’ve Tried and You Should Avoid”.  Somehow, we muscled through it (maybe by tweaking the recipes just a tiny, tiny bit).  And by day 3 we really were feeling lighter and better!  We dove right in to eating as many raw fruits and vegetables as possible and very little cooked food….Tonight at work someone told me I looked like I was losing weight! I am really excited because I actually have lost a little bit! I am motivated and still feeling better and tighter in areas that had started to become a little flabby.  I am excited to keep going down this path of health and detox!
