Fit Mommy Friday!
It is Friday again...lol.
Well, I did lose 2 pounds this week, so now I am officially back to having lost those 6 pounds that I lost, and then gained back 3. ARG.
I have been making a lot of changes to my life lately.
I recently acquired a Blendtec Blender. I love it!
I have been making green smoothies most everyday, and I have been making my own fresh juice instead of store bought.
I have made ice cream in too! Yum!
I have been increasing my water, and decreasing other drinks. I have had no caffeine, and am only drinking sprite on occasion, when I really want something.
With all of the smoothies that I have been making, I am detoxing, and cleansing. I am putting lots of spinach and kale in them. I just got some wheat germ and flax seeds yesterday too!
It has been rough though. I didn't realize how miserable it can be to detox like this.
When I went off of caffeine and sugar, I went through withdrawals and detox, and that was bad, but this has been ongoing, and just doesn't seem to end. I guess it takes a while for you to get all of the toxins out. The headaches are especially bad.
I don't know why I expected it to be all better in a few days. I have 30 years of bad eating and toxins built up in my system, and it may take a while to get all flushed out.
The thing I need to work on is adding more activity. I think, now that it is warmer, that I will try to get out and take a walk each day.
I have not had much energy since I have been trying to get healthier. Go figure. I guess it is the detoxing. I am sure I will feel better soon.
OK, I will check in next week, and if you want to see how the other Fit Mommies are doing, you can find out at Got Chai?
I just redid my blog for Winter. What do you think?
