Detoxification

Last Week of my Squat, Crunch, and Sit up challenge was an epic failure

Posted on Updated on

I’ve been pretty good for the most part, since I started my life style change, in February. I would probably rate myself a B+. I have tried all the challenges and activities, when they were scary and completely foreign. I don’t tend to back away from challenges. I’ll try most things at least once.

What happened?

I twisted my knee some kinda way. I hurt it really bad. I could climb stairs, but walking down them were just horrific! My ligament in my knee felt like it was twisting, each time I moved it. It was swollen, also. So that’s that, and how my week ended. Then I went on a week-long binge. So, when I say it was an epic failure, I am so serious! Mary Ann came to visit, and I went on a sugar binge like never before. It was all good bad stuff, so I just stayed in that.

Where I am now?

Well, JJ Smith has introduced another challenge, which was the reason we ended the challenge early. We are on a 10 day smoothie cleanse, which started yesterday. You can either do the full cleanse or the modified. I’ve never been able to fully commit to the full cleanse. From where I was just a couple of days ago, I am not even going to set myself up for failure. So, I am working up to the modified cleanse. I’ve reintroduced one smoothie to my meal plan a day, with two clean meals. I started great yesterday; today was another very good day (minus my lunch), and I’ve ended the night with my smoothie.

I am going to cut my meats back, and consumed more cooked veggies, for my meal plan, during these next 10 days. Milk is gone again, also. See ya! In addition to my 50000 IU of vitamin D, per my endocrinologist, I will consume an extra 2000 IU per day.

Day 2 is officially done. I never stopped my detoxing. i still do my body brushing; I consume all of my vitamins; I drank my detox teas. I really like that stuff; it’s like pampering myself.

As far as the physical part, we are doing a squat challenge. I am not even going to attempt it. I am going to start the squat, crunch, and sit up challenge over, minus the squats at this time. JJ says this is to give you a pretty round booty, but I have enough booty. I need some help with these arms and gut. So, I think I will ask for help on modifying this a bit. My job has trainers at our disposal, so I will be using this GREAT benefit!

So, here we go!

Good night, everyone!

Detoxing Sunday

Posted on Updated on

Today has been all about detoxification. I started my day with JJ’s defined body brushing. I don’t know about the cellulite, but I can attest for some seriously soft skin! Oh my lord, I have brand new baby skin. I do it exactly as she describes, in the video below. I try to do this, once a day. It’s simple, easy, and if nothing else, I have the softest skin.

I also did my Yogi Detox tea as well. I like to add a nice chunk of fresh lemon. It’s just takes it to a brand new level. I sweeten with honey. A delicious way I get my day started, every morning.

I am going to finish the night with a castor oil heating, for about 45 minutes, while watching a movie, and then the detox foot pads to sleep in for the night!

This will be my first time using the Castor Oil Pack Kit. So, I don’t have any feedback to give. I can tell you what my other Green Smooth Crew says, and they love it. So, here goes my new!
