A couple of months back I wrote about the fact that I was too young to feel this damn old. At the time I wasn’t really ready to do anything about it. I just wasn’t emotionally there and I needed to dig deep on several levels. While I still don’t have it all figured out I have come to the conclusion that I just need to do something…and I am doing it now.
The first thing that I have decided is to cut out all pop and caffeine. I have done this before and not only did it help my headaches immensely but I just overall felt better. So I have been without those for 4 days….it has been rough, the detox headache itself has been quite intense but I think I am on the other side of it.
The other thing I talked about a couple of weeks ago was juicing. Since watching the documentary and doing a lot of research I have found that there is something to be said about this. I was even surprised to find people I knew doing it. This is a great way to get a packed amount of clean nutrients into your body quickly and easily. It works for me because I am on the go and don’t always have time to cook. So it’s great that I can make some juice up the night before and be set for the next day. I haven’t fully decided how long I will do 100% juice, my goal right now is 5 days but I am going to let my body decide. They say you get the best results after 10 days but I don’t want to set myself up to fail so I will take it step by step. I have done a lot of reading and been hearing questions of those around me. I have researched the aspect of protein, issues with my sugar, etc. It is all completely safe and I am looking forward to cleaning out my body. After that I will then introduce things back in slowly…but ultimately I will be living a clean lifestyle. I have to….as I said before I’m much too young to feel this damn old.
To me these changes are not a gimick or a “fad” they are changes that I want and need to make in the long run. With what I have learned in the past, these changes and guidance from professionals I am hoping that this starts my road to better living.
