Fab-tas-tic.... I have just completed 3 days of detoxing. I feel so virtuous I really do. I have never ever been able to even complete a day.....would always flag by about 4pm on the first day , and stuff bread, chocs, crisps in my month..all at the same time!!!! And being completely addicted to bread, and chocs, I had to do this. This time it was different, and I truly believe that you have to be in the right mind set, otherwise you will just cave in. I had to release myself form being controlled by food.......it is sooooooooo consuming, and whilst I agree that we should all enjoy a little of what we desire, when it controls you, and your health that is ‘addiction’.
3 days of Green Smoothies consisting of celery, cucumber, avocado, apples, and spinach (quite yummy actualls), and 2 litres of water a day, I only had 3 ‘slip ups’ of a couple of rice cakes, soup, and a small piece of grilled chicken, I did bloomin’ marvelous. I also did loads of Maya Fiennes Kundalini Yoga, and had a Facial and Massage at the Salon....a retreat..all in my own home, and salon..marvellous
I meditate on a regular basis that really helped with that 'mind chitter chatter’ you know the one that tries to tell you........
“ oh just eat a piece of bread, you should be able to eat what you want, why are you punishing yourself, you are starving, you need proper food” Honestly I could go on and on, at how your mind will lead you astray.
And going food shopping...what was that like......as I entered I was greeted with a stand of buns ,and doughnuts on offer, then a little further on, a special offer on cakes, and then next to them a special offer on crisps......err hello, and all the fruit and veg offers had no designated “offer’ area at the front. We are bombarded with this everyday. And ultimately it is up to us to say no, we have to take control.
So I lost 3lbs in 3 days....how uplifting. I feel lighter, in my head too, like I have more room for other things, and I don't feel bloated.
So apart from the mad headache, and shivers on the first day, and peeing every hour, I am so glad I have done this, but like I said earlier, I had to be in the right mind set. DH and I are planning on adopting, so I really want to be healthy and fit, to give my best to a child. So I plan to carry on, not as extremely but more sensibly. I am going to try the Harcombe Diet, which is a low carb diet, and get some cardio in each day
Anyways I managed to make a mess in the Craft Room, without freaking out, and created some lovely cards. I am obsessed with ‘Larimar’ blues, corals, reds, and lime greens, at the moment
Messy!!! AND I left it like that for 4 hours....and it wasn't hard to do!!!!
