What I love about cleansing is all around me simplicity comes in view. With springs renewal I have been tearing shelves apart and packing up my little house…simplifying, huge giveaways and changes. I am always in awe of this process as it is so internal. What’s inside reflects the outside. Life with a simple wooden bowl and wooden utensils…is a poem and a magic place i love visiting. Finally got on the scale and have dropped seven pounds and what I usually use as barometer of weight gain/loss is that tight ole pair of Jeans, almost feeling sassy…shedding the winter fluff, but more than that the twinkle in my eyes…there you are Tiana! Happy Day! – Tiana
I am really enjoying the centered focus of this program, learning and loving new recipes. Self love and awareness the best gift of all. – Josette
Today was a wonderful day! That I made the intention to sit with the river was glorious within a busy life…we must make ourselves priority’s, a revolution really from human doing to a human-being! – DeeDee
Still here, I have had one or two ‘give ins’ and not really down to anything apart from lack of self control. Still I am not dwelling on them and am back on track for the fluid day! – Mary
Well I’m about to close the fabulous fruit day. I had lots of energy earlier in the day then feeling really tired. I feel open and happy and connected. I liked the happiness exercise about love today. Just trying to keep the love going. Sending some love and good vibes out to all of you – Julianne
Still enjoying the food, feeling a little weak still although on Friday managed a 4 mile run and felt fantastic running!
Also have noticed how much more motivated I feel about everything in fact! – Julianne
So I’ve been so busy . Day 2 was a blur no time to post. The recipes are really good. I must say I am enjoying them. Yesterday my body kicked into cleansing mode… I was literally in the bathroom every 30 min. Today, I have a lot to do with work, and Barr class tonight. I think I will skip the peppermint tea until I am home for the night. So far no real challenges other than finding the time to work out but today I have Barr class and I have a plan to fit things in tomorrow, so I think I will be fine. I’ve tired this sort of thing before and never made it past day three… it was such a challenge. This time is different. I know I will complete the program. It does not feel forced at all. I am never hungry. I guess the timing is just right to cleanse and release the weight. I also like the structure of this program. Even though I haven’t spoken to anyone… just knowing the community is here and getting the daily emails makes a world of difference. – Stacy
So i woke up feeling a little wobbly or weak but not hungry or empty. I am finding it is enough just to stick to the food side of the raw cleanse and i am going to take it as a bonus if i fit in the exercises, but am a pretty active person so I would say I get enough movement into my day. Loved all the meals today! And will use them again just to feel good. – Laura
Hello everyone I made it through day 1 it wasn’t bad at all. The food was really tasty. I probably drink way too much tea but it got me through the day I’m looking forward to the rest of the week hopefully it will be as smooth as today was. – Iya
Wow! We made it through day 1. My husband and I really enjoyed the breakfast, lunch and dinner. I’ve never really been a big fan of tabouli but this recipe was delicious! I’m really enjoying the structure of the program as I can be impulsive and noncommittal at times. We feel really good about the program and most of all OURSELVES!!! – Maryanne
Wow, almost made it through the day, and not hungry! I feel really good. I realize more and more each day how much of what I do is related to my mind – Powerful. I had some very stressful things to deal with yesterday and today, and usually I would be down under for weeks…..I was able to handle it in 2 days! I think the way I am eating is really helping more than I would every know!
I am starting to wonder if I am going to keep feeling this way after the cleanse and also if I will be able to maintain this great weight loss I have experienced!!
It pays to have a buddy, she kept me on track today when I wanted to give in with the water fast! Thanks Donna! – Bharti
Day 4, well I found some brown rice in the refrigerator and I ate it. But it’s all good, I still count myself a success. It’s a good day and I’m moving forward with raw food for the remainder of the day. Yesterday was all raw.
An occasional vegan side trip is still much better than what I have been putting into my body.
Just the fact that I am aware of what I’m allowing into my body tells me that I am moving in the right direction.
It is a journey not a race. – Aliya
Although I’ve done this cleanse many times, I’ve always been a bit timid to write a blog post here. I’ve written blog posts for my business, as well as for others. I think it’s because the other posts have to do with items of the mind, but this has to do with the meanderings of the heart. This is where my perfectionistic feelings come in. I know I don’t need to worry, though, as I have read others, and feel a community here that will be supportive.
I am following the diet plan as given to us. I realize there will be days I won’t be able to do that due to availability of certain produce items. But I’m confident enough in my knowledge and skills that I can substitute something else and I will still receive the nutrients that I need.
Today I juiced the grapefruits. I love grapefruit! Grapefruit is a rich source of bioflavonoids and calcium to support the immune system and flush toxins out of the body. At this time of year, I am doing all I can to support my immune system to avoid any of the germs that seem to be floating around. My body also has the signs of immune insufficiency from blood tests, so grapefruit is good.
I had the kale wrap for dinner. Kale is another vegetable I enjoy. Kale is high in specific alkaloids that protect against viruses such as Epstein Barr Virus. Another reason to include it at this time of year.
The part I have not been as good on as the movement. I know it’s important, but I haven’t done the regimen yet. Maybe running up and down stairs with laundry, etc., will count. I do have a rebounder, so maybe I should put that somewhere I can just go and jump on it. – Carolina
