If you know me, you know that I’m a VERY bad cleanser. I have every excuse in the book to not do ’em or follow through. Here are some of my favorite “reasons” for not starting, cheating & quitting; “I’ve worked out SOooo much today!”, “I’m STARVING!!!”, “I feel sick, I MUST need to eat something!”, “I have a headache.”, “How can I possibly teach when I’m this friggin’ hungry?” Those are just a few of my go tos to get me off track.
NOT NO MO’
Today I’m on Day 3 of a 3 day cleanse from Gingersnap’s Organics. I’ve made it through like a champ (well, if champions mildly complain about being hungry)! I walked Dakota over to 7th Street between 1st and A to pick up a Green Shake mid-morning from GO. I got to chat with Omar, one of the amazing peeps that work at GO, and he said it’s the freshest and cleanest kitchens he’s ever worked in (including his home kitchen). I have to say that you can taste it and feel the goodness. I don’t know it’s a Greek thing, but one of the greatest compliments my mom ever gives about food is that it’s “So Fresh” and that’s the way I feel, FRESH!
Yes, I was hungry yesterday, but it was only for a hot minute and I made it through. I went to bed wanting to eat, but I wasn’t really hungry and I didn’t cheat. I woke up this morning and felt awesome! I hopped on the scale thinking I feel great, but not SO much lighter and BAM I’ve lost 5lbs in 2 days! WHAT? Yeah, it’s crazy, I KNOW! Believe me, I’m psyched that the pounds are falling off, but even more excited that I’m feelin’ so good.
I’m going to continue my “cleanse” aka new way of eating next week with 4 days of the Raw GO cleanse (it’s all gluten free, raw & organic). Next week more of my clients will be joining me, if you’re interested or have questions you can hit up the Gingersnap’s Organic Website!
Happy & Healthy Eating!
YOU’RE WICKED FIERCE!
