Lets try this again

Thursday, September 06, 2012

This summer has been a doozy! I can only assume the stress finally got to me because I have spent almost my entire summer sick, sick, sick. Everything from the flu, to colds, bacterial infections, injuries, hair loss! I have had it. I am at the point that when I get a headache I keep apologizing to my husband bc he's had to step up as Mr Mom for his summer vacation, poor guy. The only positive has to be seeing him in a new, well actually, old light. He was there when I needed him, not one complaint.
I have been officially back on my feet for an entire week illness free and feeling like I can try this again! And boy oh boy is it needed, I've gained 10 lbs! Not only is there the gain but there is also muscle loss, decrease in endurance and motivation.
So what am I going to do about it? Detox. I need to rid all of the toxins and medications from my system. Skin, hair, body, mind. I am talking about 10 days of green smoothies, fresh soups, sassy water, green tea, spa water, apple cider vinegar, water water water. I am also going to throw in a few detoxing spa treatments. I will be trying my best to get restful sleep. As far as fitness, I am easing back in with my normal variety of running, weight lifting, walks, circuit training. I've been on two days of prepping and today is my go ahead!
*I wont be fasting* It never works for me! Instead I will be restricting my calories to a rather low number and adding 100 calories per day until I reach day 11 at 1200-1500 calories depending on my daily fitness level. After this 10 day detox, I am planning for a 1 month of get s#!% done! This is where I set goals and kick the s#!% out of them and myself. I miss my kick ass attitude! I miss a reason to get on Spark People everyday. I miss having goals and feeling motivated!

Thank you for reading. I am very excited to get caught back up with old members, new, and those who have been rooting for me that I am yet to get to know!

My food chart will be available for viewing.
I will also blog about my detox drinks, green cubes, and spa treatments for anyone who is interested :]

    Hi new friend. Thank you for the sparkgoodie today
    Good blog. Makes me want to do the same thing. This was me two years ago always sick. I was sick straight for 4 months. I've learned a lot through that about myself.
    Just one day at a time , you can get there again. 10 lbs will be off before you know it. Stick to your plan then you'll be kicking butt in no time.
    I have some tricks of the trade to kick up that immune system what works for me. And no joke. I take probiotics 3 times a day, one with each meal. I get them from the health food store or you can find them anywhere now a days then I drink Aloe vera juice in the morning on a empty stomach. Just a little bit you can drink it whole or add it in some pomagrante juice which is really good for you. And I swear by taking coconut oil everyday at lunch time. They come in pill form. They're suppose to be excellent for getting you really healthy. Then fish oil too.
    I haven't been sick in two years . So who knows. Maybe it's something you want to try out.
    Good luck with your cleanse for the ten days. I'll be looking forward to seeing how you goes for you.

    Good for you!! I'm at that same stage where I need to get it together and get back on track. However, I don't have a reason for falling off the wagon. I didn't get sick this summer, I just got lazy! I've been on track with my eating, but I've been struggling to exercise. I don't know why, but I can't seem to make myself get up and move. I need some of your kick ass attitude!! Good Luck, but you don't need it. You are one of the most willful people I know. You're gonna do great!
