Transformation Tuesday – Gentle Cleanse

4¼ inches. Gone. And NOT missed.

Those inches were eliminated from my body during a gentle cleanse I took on last week!

I had been so weighed down with all the lingering summery splurges, and holiday indulgences, and as active as I am physically, that still isn’t enough to override some terrrrrible eating habits.

What, you think I like the fact that nutrition is quite a big chunk of wellness? No, but it is… so I gotta roll with it!

Honestly I think most people know by now I don’t really care about weight or pounds lost – I care about how I FEEL (cleaned out, energized, mentally sharp and oh, not to worry, still super sassy! 😉)

Have you ever done a cleanse?

New Yoga for 3 Day Refresh!

Up til this week, when I did a Refresh, I didn’t work out the three day span because it’s a good time to give my body a •R E S T•, but this week Beachbody dropped three new yoga workouts designed specifically FOR the Refresh, so of course I had to give it a try!

Felt good to move but not do anything strenuous that would take away from my body resetting itself – you all know I believe in working hard and playing hard, but it’s important to also be gentle and show yourself and your body the love and compassion it deserves.

Day 2, here we go!

 

Gentle Cleanse – Day One!

The leftover Summer gunk. The candy gunk (yep, totally had a few pieces of candy after my 90+ day streak ended). The Thanksgiving gunk.

It’s time. Time to #unstuffmyself!

I’ve strayed a little too far from the badass healthier lifestyle I had grown to live and love – the one that was keeping my Diabetes under control and had me feeling GOOD.

I am shaking myself off and focusing on going forward, back to feeling light and energized, starting with a gentle 3 day nutritional reset (one where I eat REAL FOOD – no starvation tactics here!), to get rid of all the fluffy gunk bogging me down!

I have done this 3 day cleanse several times now and felt fantastic each and every time, physically AND mentally!

Could you use a nutritional reset? Let’s chat!

 

Try It Tuesday – 3 Day Refresh

I dislike calling this a detox because that word has gotten a bad, bad reputation in the wellness community, mostly because its associated with extremes that cause your body to react, well… extremely!

Trust and believe I would NEVER do anything extreme to my body, certainly nothing that would have me taking up residence in the bathroom!

No, this is a gentle cleanse, you get to eat plenty of clean, whole foods, and you won’t be spending the entire 72 hours in the bathroom – I PROMISE.

I have done this several times, including the days leading up to my wedding (what bride doesn’t want to feel light, bright, and recharged right before one of the biggest days of her life?!) and I have loved how I felt after every single time. It helped to stabilize my sugars and clean the gunk out of me!

My team has a group starting on December 14th, and we finish December 16th! We would love to have you join us if you would like to tune yourself up to feel great for those holiday parties!

Here is the results from one of my 3 Day Refreshes!

If you would like to join us, drop me a message or a comment, or you can get your kit here!

Self Love Saturday – Post Holidays

Whew! I am exhausted! I don’t know how all you parents do it (I do look forward to that kinda crazy someday, but right now I have enough…)

Packing and purging and project creating, shopping and wrapping and working, plus everything else… this girl is TAPPED OUT.

I love that so many people come to me in search of unique Christmas gifts for their loved ones (I also have a crafting business on the side, in addition to blogging and being a Beachbody coach – life is too short to ever be bored!), and I probably took on too much this season – but it was so worth it to see the smiles!

Now that Christmas is over, I want to take some time today to do…. *drum roll* NOTHING. I need it. My body needs it. My mind needs it. I need to have nothing to do, no deadlines to meet, for a day, until we start the craziness of packing up an entire house to move.

Spoiler alert: I don’t really intend to do nothing all day… that goes against every fiber of my being. However, I DO fully intend to take an hour to do nothing – I promise!

How will you show yourself love today?
