As the year came to an end, I began to feel tired all the time. Maybe it was partly being out of my normal routine, food indulges and giving in to my serious sweet tooth? Who knows. January came and I was ready to get back at my clean eating, committing to the gym and to focus on my goals. Well, I got blasted with a week-long cold, then my girls got the cold, I ran in the Color Run (in the pouring rain and was freezing cold for hours) and bam I got a major sinus infection. Three long weeks later, I finally felt a little back to normal but still very tired.
The search was on and I had found this picture showing me where different organs are in the body and what types of foods can help those areas:
I finally found something I thought would work. I decided to try a cleanse and detox. I have never done one and I wanted something that contained lots of green vegetables and fruits. Not just liquids (because I would rather eat my calories than drink them), no pills or other weird things to try- more au natural.
It was a 3-day cleanse and detox from SkinnyMS.com You can find everything you need here.
This is what I made the morning of Day 1. It was full of green veggies, and lots of fruit. This took me a long time to drink and was really thick. To my surprise it was really good. I stuck with the remainder of the day, following the cleanse and detox. I made it until the end of day one and was STARVING! I still munched on fruit and veggies and went to bed- still hungry! lol
Day 2, I made another drink, drank it and decided I needed more food. I gave up. Yup- that’s right, gave up. I was just too hungry, had a headache and my body needed more to function.
BUT- this cleanse worked for me. Lets just say you should not go on a 5 hour car ride while doing this!
One day worked for me. I got rid of all the junk I had been eating and got my energy back feeling fresh again!
I am now trying to incorporate a “green drink” once a week on a rest day!
Go and give this cleanse a try! I highly recommend it, but do not go past the 3 days!
