the new well detox day 8 & 9

18 Nov

I am towards the end of my detox, really today is the last day to take supplements and tomorrow I will be add more variety of foods back into my diet. This is the first detox I have ever done, I have always been afraid because its usually a liquid diet, ain’t nobody got time for that (lol). The way it works is, you have a set food plan for each day, you gradually take away foods on the list, then add them back in towards the end of the week. You drink a shake that gets rid of the metals and environmental toxins and a supplement that adds nutrients back in your body. You are never hungry because you can have unlimited servings of the items set food plan.

For the first in my life I made Salmon and actually enjoyed it, I even convinced my 4 year old that it was chicken and she loved it. I wish I was able to get her  to drink the green smoothie (kale, spinach, apple, pear, ice and water, blended) I made because it was so yummy and good for you, the boys enjoyed it and I plan on making it often. I have not really been on a workout routine since I started working in June. I have the energy and I am making workout a priority! Being a wellness consultant I have to set a good example, not only for my family, but for my clients and friends. This detox has definitely put me in a better spot mentally. After all, anything you ever do in life has nothing to do with your physically ability but how mentally strong you are.

So my question is, what are you waiting for? Not just with this detox, what is holding you back from reaching your weight loss goal? Why wait for tomorrow? Tomorrow never comes, Monday never comes, next week or next month NEVER COME!!!! You just got to wake up an make the choice for today:)

FYI I am on day 9  I am feeling great, after I log off here I am headed to the gym and am planning for a busy day. Please comment below if you have any questions about the detox or need help starting your journey:)
