And I am back. Life has been a whirlwind but when is it not? So much change. So much growth. I went to Japan, loved it, fell in love, had a blast and came back to the reality of my routine but haven't quite picked up my good habits back yet. This is why I'm creating this battle log. The fight within myself to heal is not over and I am back in the arena. So let's start today, shall we? ♡ WEEK 1 OF THE CLEANSE: ♡ X One Coffee a Day [ ] X Processed Carbs Once a Day [ ] X Fried Foods Once a Week [ ] X Meditation Daily [ ] X Yoga or Lifting [ ] ♡ WEEK 2 OF THE CLEANSE: ♡ X Only Tea [ ] X Processed Carbs Once a Week [ ] X No Fried Foods [ ] X Meditation Daily [ ] X Yoga or Lifting [ ] ♡ WEEK 3 OF THE CLEANSE: ♡ X No Caffeine [ ] X Processed Carbs Once a Week [ ] X No Fried Foods [ ] X Meditation Daily [ ] X Yoga or Lifting [ ] ♡ WEEK 4 OF THE CLEANSE: ♡ X No Caffeine [ ] X Raw 'Til 4?

When I hear CLEANSE, my immediate thoughts go to: Miserable and back to your old habits (and size) once you stop drinking carrot juice and start eating real food again. So when one of my best friends asked if I wanted to do a cleanse with her I was not interested at all until she sent me the info. This isn't a cleanse, it's a supplement enhanced jumpstart to a lifestyle change! And isn't that what I'm here for? I'm going to spare you the details (which sounds like a sales pitch) and I am in no way affiliated with the company. But I did a bunch of research about the supplements & vitamins, the ingredients, took it to a friend who's 100% organic and he even gave me the green light, blah blah blah... Basically, I'm going to take the magic mushroom and use it to defeat Bowser. This leads me to this month's challenge: Follow my Challenge Meal Plan. I generally followed the guidelines for the "24 Day Challenge" including the recommended times for the supplements and generally followed paleo throughout. I tried to plan varied meals and am going to cook for leftovers because the amount of cooking that I'll be doing is crazy and the amount of food consumed total will be much more than I'm used to (in frequency, not in portions). Water will be my friend. I'm going to be drinking over a gallon a day so I've started preparing for that early. I scheduled my meals and snacks around my work hours and my classes, that will be starting, so I will be setting myself up for success. Workout 5 days a week. Workout Spreadsheet Walk for 30 minutes twice a week. Bodyweight circuits three times a week with mixed cardio. Read 30+ minutes a day Textbooks (since I'm starting school again) Fun books (currently the Atlantis Plague, next Dresden Files book 4) Any of the other books I have lying around
Has anyone here tried any kind of cleanse? I was really into my strength training workouts for about 5 or 6 months but then fell off the wagon due to a lot of travel, crazy heat waves with no air conditioning, moving to a new apartment, etc. Now I feel physically gross and I'm starting to notice my pants feeling tight. I need to get on the path to healthy again, but I'd love to start by cleaning up my diet and getting rid of all the toxins, hopefully making my body feel a bit less gross right off the bat. I've never tried a cleanse before though and I'm wondering if anyone here has any recommendations for a cleanse that will be (1) healthy, (2) relatively easy to prepare, and (3) make me feel awesome so I can start my strength training and cardio again?
