Time to get frank. This week Heather and I start the “cleanse” packets. They are a powder you add to 32 oz. of water and sip throughout the day. The flavor is lemon ginger and I found it to be pleasant but I know not everyone loves juice. I drank it pretty quickly today because of plain old thirst and I definitely feel some rumbling in my stomach but, other than that nothing new to report. The idea of these packets is that they replace the morning probiotic. There are 7 packets in the box that you receive with the 30 day program and you are supposed to drink them every other day till they are gone. They are the final phase of the last two weeks. (PS. we are already at the last two weeks, time is flying!) The cleanse packets are designed to remove the remaining toxins from your body. So anything that is clogging up your intestines and is preventing your body from functioning at its optimal level has GOT TO GO!
Also some more huge victories for Heather and myself. NO NAPS! Our family has a particular love for the afternoon siesta. I am always super sad when one of my kids stops napping. However, Heather and I both feel that we have lost that absolutely dragging feeling at 3pm. Its not to say that we are still not tired here and there, but again the highs are less jittery and the lows are less exhausting.
Drum roll please~Heather has not taken migraine medication in over a week!!!!! (As I mentioned before she used to take it everyday.)
Her psoriasis continues to improve, and the itchiness is far better, but we both agree that it would take time for some of her more troubling spots to heal.
I personally feel like I have fallen into a rhythm with meal planning and spacing snacks throughout the day. (Despite the fact that randomly last Friday for an hour I would have sold my soul for a cup of coffee. Those addictions are hard to kick!) I have traveled these last two weekends and although it took some extra preparation on the front end of the trip for me, making sure I had shake mix and a water bottle shaker, etc. I would say it was pretty darn easy. Also for my dinners, so many restaurants offer healthy options. I never felt like I was sabotaging my success. I have told many people, I do not feel hungry ever. Actually sometimes the opposite, because of the amount of fluids I am intaking.
Which leads me to another small victory.
MY SKIN! It looks and feels so much better. The first few days I had some minor breakouts which I think came from the initial detoxification of my system, but since then I have remained almost blemish free and dark circles are at a minimum.
Also are there any things you have question about? Anything I haven’t covered but you would like me to address? Leave a note in the comments or direct message me
