Cristie and Amy banded together to get Amy healthier. I wanted in on the fun so Cristie and I talked about it, but then life happened and we never really connected. I started getting healthy on my own and things were going great. They still are but I have hit a little bit of a plateau now that I am back working.
Last week Cristie told met that she was going to do a 2 week cleanse with some people, including Amy and did I want to join in? I jumped at the chance. Here I am on the day before the cleanse starts and I am FREAKING OUT!
First, I am cutting out caffeine. I like to think that I am not addicted to my morning cup of coffee (or 2) but I am sure that I am. This one is going to be tough. I am not looking forward to it. Coffee has become a comfort for me in the morning so taking that away will be hard. I am going to replace coffee with some yum tea and hope that I can get comfort from that.
Second, eating healthy is no joke on the pocketbook y'all. I went grocery shopping yesterday with a list that had about 40 things on it. 28 of those things were green in color. Crazy! I spent well over $125 on things that LG probably won't touch but I am trying to see it as an investment in my health. My fridge has never been so full of yummy veggies and fruit. Did I mention that I had to buy kale and dandelion greens??? WTH is happening to me?
I am actually really excited about this process. Food is comfort for me which isn't a good thing. I don't rely on it as much as I used to but I have certainly had issues with it in the past. I am a little nervous to eat pretty much all greens this week, but I know I can do it!
Come on along on this ride with me! And if you are a close friend or someone I work with....treat me gently for a few days if I rip your head off. I guarantee it's because I'm hungry or going through caffeine withdrawls.
