Again, writing the day after. I decided to also do a full body cleanse along with my 30 day challenge to reset my body. I chose the Raw Cleanse, since it has the most benefits in cleansing the body and is derived from vegan, raw ingredients. I will talk more about this later.
After doing Jillian Michaels’ Yoga Meltdown the night before and climbing, my body is sore, but in an excellent way. This is how I know my body is working, and responding to all of the work I’ve been doing for it.
We spent the day together as a family by going to church, having lunch, and then hubs went off to play golf while Syd napped and after waking up, we went to the pool together. We had such a great time! She loves the water so much, and I love taking her. And the pool was so crowded! I love seeing Syd’s confidence grow in the water.
We went to Target for a 3 drawer system to transform my office into a sewing/craft room for me, and then home to cook dinner. I had found a recipe for stuffed zucchini, and since hubs was golfing with our good friend, we invited our friend over for dinner. Well, dinner was a hit! Sydney devoured hers, I ate mine, and hubs and friend loved it! I wasn’t feeling very confident about it, but the thing about this dish is that it can be made any way I want: Mexican, Italian, and I could even switch it up a bit for hubs (the meat eater of the house) and put shredded chicken in his. So excited to find new recipes. Here is the link for the website: Zoom Yummy The entire site looks delicious, look for me to talk about her recipes more!
After getting Miss Syd to bed, I organized my fabric in my new 3 drawer system. More about the transformation later. It was obviously my off day for exercise, and that was okay with me.
Here is what I had for meals:
Breakfast: Oatmeal with coconut butter, honey, 1/2 banana, cinnamon
Snack: 1/2 banana
Lunch: 1 1/2 Falafel (1/2 of one fell on the floor, so I counted that as a lost cause), and 3 huge handsful of baby spinach, sauteed with onion & spices, fresh pineapple
Dinner: Stuffed zucchini (one small one)
Now about the 7 day cleanse I am doing. It has 3 parts to it, a before breakfast powder that is put in the mouth with a sip of water, swished then swallowed, capsules that are taken with breakfast and lunch (3 at a time), and powder that is mixed with water or low sugar juice and drank. So here is how it went. The morning powder, not too bad, and then I ate. With breakfast, the capsules were no big deal, swallowing pills is not too bad. But the before bed powder mixture, that was horrific! To the credit of the man in the store, he warned me it did not taste good, but I assure you, it was not a taste thing. Coupled with the grainy texture of the powder (and not the mention the taste of alfalfa), I gagged after every drink. Yikes! I’ll take a picture of this stuff tonight before I drink it! I will be thankful when I’m finished with the 7 day cleanse!
