It Starts with a Cleanse

I’ve been feeling blah health wise. Not anything major, although my BP has been wacky lately, but I’m on medication for it. My doctor thinks it’s just been all related to weight gain (the holidays–and just poor eating choices overall–I love chips and all kinds of salty things) as well as holiday stress, poor sleeping habits, not enough exercise all those things. He wants to re-check me in a month.

One of my friends suggested this cleanse diet. It goes for two weeks. The regimen eliminates gluten, sugar, caffeine, starchy vegetables, carbs, and alcohol. So all the good stuff. Lots of protein and green leafy veggies. A couple days in, I’m beginning to like it. Not sure why just the two weeks, because I can see myself going longer (except for wine, vodka tonics and beer–I’ll slowly incorporate those back in wink wink). Maybe two weeks because of that old adage “after two weeks it becomes habit”.

This cleanse has also brought about a total cleansing? Cleaning and purging and dropping some negativity from my life. I’m gonna make 2022 my year!

    Good luck with it! If you feel fine after the two weeks, I say why not continue it. But your good, I don’t know I could give up my nightly G&T. But admit the diet sounds good.I seem to never lack exercise. I too love green leafy vegetables but then tend to burn out of them.

    Good luck with the new regimen. Hopefully it works for you. I don’t know if I could do it!

    I like green, leafy vegetables–as long as I can drench them with ranch dressing.

    I am glad it is going well, JM. I would definitely struggle. Good luck and happy new year.

    I suggest you keep the good diet as a lifestyle not as a short time cleanse as it were. good for you for taking care of yourself!
