With this detox, we are getting rid of the addictions that make us a slave to sugar, caffeine, alcohol, processed food and junk food. When you can finally say that you don’t need coffee to get your day started or sugar to get you through the day then you can eat these items in moderation. Be aware that you can easily get addicted again so just because we’re done with the detox tomorrow doesn’t mean you can go to town and eat all these things in one sitting! LOL!
1) Wednesday- Stretch, Cardio and Upper Body Strength Training!
Don’t be afraid to use weights. Strength training increases muscle mass, which revs up your metabolism for faster calorie burning. Combine both by doing cardio and weight training to get the maximum results!
2) Food-Not all health food are created equal!
When we buy ‘healthy’ food at Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods then we automatically think that it’s good for us. Well, not exactly. You still have to read labels and more importantly follow the portion servings. When I first started on my health kick, I would seriously eat half the bag of almonds! I’m talking the BIG bag!!! I would eat lots of yogurt with loads of sugar and juices too. Be aware and be mindful. It’s a process. If you are in our Spring Clean Challenge group, we are very excited to have Michelle from Michelle’s Health and Nutrition Zone join our program and she will be answering a lot of our questions! Michelle is a certified nutritionist and very knowledgeable! Please add her on Facebook!
3) Mantra For the Day- Patience
By this time some of you are seeing great results and you are excited about the program. Some of you are not seeing any results and in fact have gained a few pounds! You are not crazy. Different people respond differently to the detox. Be patient with yourself and don’t judge. Results will happen. Sometimes your body type, health issues, age, and background will determine how your body will process this detox. You didn’t get here overnight. We’re only on day nine! If you haven’t been as diligent as you should be then it’s not too late to start. If you’ve been following everything meticulously and are still not seeing results, give it some time. You might want to take advantage of Michelle and ask her some questions about your diet. Either way, measure your success by how strong you are getting. You are so much more aware now and you are making great choices. Be proud of your efforts. Don’t get discouraged. You are doing an amazing job!!! I’m really proud of you.
Love you guys and I’m rooting for you!!!:)))
