I forgot! When you’re doing this whole cleanse thing? GET MOVING. Physical activity makes it so, so much easier. Even long walks will help keep you focused. Especially when you think you want to cheat. Shut the fridge, stand the hell up, and start moving. Last summer I was walking, biking, swimming, and doing pilates the whole time*. It felt great (of course, the nice sunny weather helped), and I need to be fitting more exercise in now. Remember, no matter how busy you are, make time for working out — it’ll help you feel good, it’ll decrease your stress, and it’ll help you actually get more done.
And now, enough of this cleansing business. There’s a lot of love here, but GO GET THE BUTTER. In a day or two, we’ll be back to yummy foods. But expect more of a balance going forward – sure, some sugary yummy, but also yummy and healthy, stuff everyone can enjoy. Not just boring-ass dietary monks. Mmm, saffron.
*That will be too much physical activity for some, because the three week cleanse can be a lot for your body to handle, but definitely walk. You’ll be glad you did.
