From my last entry, I was gung-ho for the year to come. I am all in this - I know everything there is to know about what I need to succeed...
Yada, Yada, Yada.
It annoys me to no end seeing my scale go down 5 lbs and then up 3 and down 2 and up one - gah! I swear it must have a mind of its own. What is my body doing???? I have used 4 different scales and I see the same results.
These are good the facts I can clearly state:
1. I eat very well. Salad is the main course. I eat at least 5 fruits and veggies everyday. I take probiotics, vitamins, suppliments, omega 3 fatty acids, etc.
2. I avoid sugar.
3. I have cut back on meat, yet keep high protein foods in my system such as eggs, beans, etc...
4. I meditate daily & maintain a low blood pressure.
5. I have no known illness or diabetes.
6. I exercise daily.
7. I am everybody's best cheerleader. I can motivate the heck out of you & can lead groups into massive inspiration.
Here are the downsides to my lifestyle:
1. I have a hard time drinking water. It has to be cold & taste good, therefore I am dehydrated.
2. I don't get in 40 min of cardio, 5 times a week like I know I should.
3. I fell down the stairs several weeks ago causing some serious injury to my spine.
4. I am allergic to a lot of foods & extremely sensitive to most, so basically my body is full of poison.
5. I drink coffee & wine.
6. I have lost my "mojo".
I know, I know... Drink more water, cut the caffeine & alcohol, get more exercise. I GET IT! But I think that last one is the key. If you or anyone you know has found my mojo, please send it back. I would really appreciate that. Thank you!

I am so done with my laziness. I wish I hadn't fallen away from this in 2013, but I want this so bad. I want to be focused in the new year - not just making a resolution here, but committing to get it done this time... I don't want to use Spark as a personal place to hang out & talk about my problems. Simply use it as a HEALTHY tool - to focus on STRENGTH, NUTRITION and EXERCISE. I am so ready...

Well yesterday was my last full day on the cleanse and when I weighed in this morning, I was the same as yesterday morning. Doesn't make a whole lot of sense because I cut all processed foods, sugar, caffeine and alcohol for over a week.
Six pounds is great, but this particular cleanse usually flushes out the water retention, which it hasn't for me. I am still inflamed in my hands, feet and abdomen. Some things I've eaten during the process have had gluten so I guess that's the #1 culprit. It is just SO HARD to find comparable ingredients for creating balanced meals.
Oh well... fresh start & at least I know I've done something good for myself... Now I can go out to eat tonight in LA :) Excited to have a nice meal and a glass of wine with a good friend!
Hope you all have a fabulous weekend!

Last night I had fish, kale sautéed with garlic, and lentils. We had watermelon for dessert... So healthy - I was proud of myself. I have been eating two healthy snacks in the middle of the day, along with my accelerators. You would think that I would have released more pounds but I have been staying pretty much within 1-2 lbs. There was gluten mixed in the fish (patties) that I have been eating - yes, I have a lot to learn... so that may be the reason why.
One more day & I'm done with it. I was supposed to be on the juice cleanse today & tomorrow, but since I had the reaction to it last week, I'll just continue with 2 shakes and 1 meal.
I feel as though I've really grasped this. I'm not hungry & my energy is up so GREAT!

I am on day 7 of the cleanse & so far, so good... Here's a re-cap of my week:
Day 1 - Hungry, cranky and craving coffee. I wasn't sure I would go through with it, but I made it without cracking. (Down .8 lb)
Day 2 - Feeling a little queasy. Checked out Google and found out people with high acid in their systems (me) can have a reaction to the IsaCleanse. Never had this before, but I definitely have an imbalance in my body. (Down 3 lbs)
Day 3 - FINALLY a shake day! Welcomed it with open arms and enjoyed the shakes for breakfast and lunch. I was almost out of my beloved Vanilla flavor, but plenty of chocolate. Had a delishious fish patty with quinoa and salad for dinner - yum! (Down 3.2 lbs)
Day 4 - Getting used to nibbling on an almond or wafer when hungry between meals - love the freedom of not having to plan so much. I feel really satisfied! (Down 5 lbs)
Day 5 - I cheated a little bit - had a Klondike bar after dinner - woops! Repeated my fish meal - yum! (Down 5.5 lbs)
Day 6 - I'm still going strong! Had an omlette for my big meal around Noon, which was satisfying. I broke & ate some cheese-its while I was watching TV. OMG they were so good! But a big no-no... GLUTEN and Carbs. Oh well... (Down 5.5 lbs)
Day 7 - I feel really good - hoping to release more this week. I plan on finding some Alkaline water which is supposed to help with my chemical imbalance. I have tried it before and felt really good from it - worth another try. I just don't want to be sold on buying that expensive Kangen system... (Down 6 lbs)
So far, I'm down exactly 6 lbs in 7 days - this is the least amount I've ever released on a cleanse, which tells me there's been something seriously wrong with my system for a long while. I can feel it in my body & doctors just can't pinpoint it so I'm left to my own resources. I am still feeling swollen but seeing the scale move down as opposed to up (which has been the case for a looooong time) feels encouraging! I just need to find out how to reverse the acidity in my system and STOP eating products with wheat in them - duh!
