I've been toying with the idea of doing a cleanse. I've always said I could never do one because I cannot not eat. I am not fun to be around when I am hungry. As a mother, I know that I can no longer act like a child and I will survive without food. Hopefully, I will benefit from the time away from eating.
A twitter friend raved about Peeled's three day cleanse.
Lately I have been bloated and irritable and figure I should at least try, maybe it will be easier than I imagine. Of course, I had many questions first.
I've visit Peeled weekly and their smoothies and juices are delicious, expensive and packed with unique fresh fruits and vegetables. I'm comforted knowing I wouldn't be depriving myself of everything tasty. Also, buying pre-made juices will save a lot of time on produce shopping and preparing myself.
According to Peeled's site, these are some of the benefits of cleansing.
- A boosted immune system
- Physical rejuvenation
- Increased energy
- Allergy alleviation
- Rested digestive organs
- Normalized weight
- Normalized blood pressure
- Elevated mood and sex drive
- Clearer skin
- Improved thyroid function
In related news, my husband and I have been discussing starting P90x April 1st. P90x is at home workout program targeting different muscles everyday.
It is now officially April and we don't have P90x. I've got to take the plunge and order it this week. I hope we can commit to the program and finish what we (hopefully) start.
Change is always good; it is just taking that leap to start that takes a while.
