Phase One- DOWN!
Today was a good day. I woke up about an hour before I was supposed to and couldn't fall back to sleep. That's a good sign I am well rested and not exhausted. Like I said earlier in the week- I haven't felt tired on this cleanse at all besides in the evening when I am supposed to be tired anyway.
Today I haven't had any stuffy nose yet. It was also the first day I was not sore and achy! I don't know if it's finally passed or if the dry brushing and Epsom salts last night really made a big difference. Either way, I am happy about that!
I am sad phase 1 is over because today was the last day I got to eat the baked tempeh recipe. I LOVE that shit. I will be counting down to eating it again when this is all over.
I went to an amazing nutrition seminar today, and I kind of want to blog about it. But I've decided to wait until its over (its a 3 part seminar) and that way I can do one big post about all the info rather than 3 random posts that interrupt my cleansing posts. The last seminar is on the last day of my detox. Perfect timing. I will be SO motivated to continue healthy eating having just detoxed for 21 days and wanting to put all my new knowledge into practice. For me, the key to developing a new habit is to saturate my brain with knowledge so I can no longer ignore WHY I want to do something differently. I wasn't able to commit to veganism at this level until I truly understood why meat doesn't work with my body. Now it's MUCH easier.
1/3 of the way done. In 3 days we will be at the half way point. I know this week might be tough but I'm looking forward to it. I have a lot of support on the ultimate reset Facebook pages and I'm also running a challenge group. To be honest, this challenge group is nothing like my last one. This group doesn't appear as motivated- but it may just be that they've chosen not to post much so it only appears that way. I'm trying to think of what I can do differently to get them on the ball but I'm not doing anything differently than last time. Maybe the last group just had great chemistry. Not sure, but its deff bumming me out a little bit. Hopefully as a group we still see some great loses on Monday. I'm not sure everyone is fully committed though, which is why I think they're not posting much, and that's no fun- and will show on the scale. Oh well, We shall see!!!
I already packed lunch and supplements for tomorrow because ill be at the salon during it. managing the reset isn't too hard as long as you pre-plan. Since I already preplanned everything I was going to eat and do anyways, this isn't weird for me. In a sense it's a little easier because I don't have to plan what I am going to eat for each meal- it's decided for me.
I'm soaking in a Lukewarm tub with Epsom salts and rose petals right now (lanabellasoap.com) and it sucks. There was barely any hot water and I don't know why! What I do know is if my muscles are sore tonight or tomorrow again I will be blaming this bath lol
