Detox time

Yes indeed. I've come so far but time is quickly approaching to my daughter's wedding day.That being said, I need a good BOOST and I need to CLEANSE my body really good. I will continue to do my WW's of course, but I will be detoxing for the next 90 days. This will be the LONGEST I've ever done for a cleanse and will require extreme amounts of discipline. That hasn't been my best quality, self control. However, the NEW Chris has done amazing things in 2.5 months, so I CAN do this.

What exactly is a cleanse you ask? It's detoxing all the toxins OUT of your body. It is a way of getting rid of bad habits and bad choices, only to replace them with better choices. During the first part of the cleanse I can't eat meat, alcohol, sugar, ANYTHING white, and most dairy. All of those things I will be okay with, and it won't kill me. I've been without meat before, I have NO problem eating soy based "meats".

I have to say, as scary as it sounds, I'm looking forward to a leaner me, a healthier me, and hoping I can say goodbye to a few things permanently. I know dairy is NOT good for you, and my sinuses suffer when I eat too much dairy. There are SO many other ways to get the calcium we need, dairy is NOT the only source.

I don't eat a lot of sugar but I know I eat HIDDEN sugars and those are just as bad. I need to really start to read labels more and be more aware of what I'm putting in my body. So, tomorrow I start something hard, something my body won't like but will BENEFIT my body. I will NOT quit because I am NO LONGER a quitter. I am a finisher, I know what the finish line looks like and its' BEAUTIFUL. This IS my time, the year I get healthy. And how will I do bite at a time, one decision at a time!

  1. How was the weigh in result from last night. don't try to alter all of your habits at one time or you will find yourself overwhelmed and stop doing it.
    Keep up the good work.
