At the beginning of the month, I wanted to make the month of July one of losing weight and getting healthy. I’ve lost maybe 4-5. Depends on the time of day and what I had the night before. It’s the last week and I needed something good to round me off. That’s when one of my fellow Cosmo Girls recommended Dr. Lindsey’s detox. I remembered hearing about it on the show, that was the day I discovered Wake Me, a product that has since changed my life.
I bought most of the products, the Noni, Magnesteed, Gogi and Acai. Love the Acai Berry Juice. The concoction of the other three is the worst thing I’ve tasted in my life. At least lately. I’ve learned the only way I can get it down is to plug my nose and chug like I did when I was five and I had to take gross medicine.
I decided last week this was it. I can’t “diet” anymore, or at least not for awhile. Since 2009 it’s been a constant struggle. I’m not sure what happened with my body, but it went crazy. It’s taken me two years to get back to “normal.” I’m wanting to go above and beyond, but honestly, it’s stressful to diet.
I’ve truly learned how to eat healthier. So it’s not that I’m giving up being healthy, but now i’m just going to BE healthy. And if I want to have pizza one night, I will. And if I want to have chicken and steamed broccoli another night, I will. I’ve needed to do the work to get back to where I am. Also, I’m sure once I’m ready, I’ll detox and/or diet again. One day I’ll be ready to go even further. But for now, I can’t. It’s mentally exhausting. I realized last week that I’ve been doing this for so long and it’s just so overwhelming. I’m ready to just live for awhile.
I just have to get through this week first, or whenever my Magnesteed, Noni and Gogi runs out. If I lose weight, that would be wonderful. And if I don’t, I’ll at least feel better.
