Cleansing

Cleansing

Yup that is what I have been doing since I’ve returned from my holidays- my body just felt like it needed a reboot, cleanse, detox or whatever you want to call it!!

I broke it on day Day 6 with a smoothie and some raw soup – and they tasted so good, it’s like my taste buds came alive again.

The cleanse was not bad at all, I took the time to really tune into my body and want it wanted – sleep, rest, walking with my dog, hot steams, lots of spring water, juices and I even did the enema route, and journaled for the emotions that come up too – don’t need to go into too much detail on those two but lets just say there was some crap that needed to come out and it did!!

I even watched Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead with Joe Cross and also Vegucated  – I wasn’t that bad feeling – I just felt tired, sluggish and like I needed a break from food – ok I did over indulge a little on holidays I will admit!!  There were  educational and I would recommend both!!

I even cleaned out my computer -all old emails, documents etc, my fridge, closet and people.

Not always easy but when you have a goal in mind, or a chance to really take a look at the good, bad and the ugly why hold on to things that aren’t bringing you joy? Why hold onto things that a heavy in energy, or old, or that you don’t like, use or wear any more.  For me that one day just wasn’t happening so I got really honest with myself about alot of things and it’s amazing when you let go of things you don’t like, use or wear any longer – the lightness you feel, the better you feel or look and sometimes other things and people start coming into your life that you didn’t have room for before.

Sometimes it’s incredible when you step back and have an honest look at your life where you are holding on to some things that could be let go of – too much stuff weighs us down.  Too much over eating or eating the wrong stuff too often weighs us down too.

I know it’s still a bit early for spring but where in your life or body could you do a little cleansing…..it’s not hard really and it feels so good on the other side even if it’s 24 hours or one closet!!

What could you do today??

Lemon-Strawberry-008One of the drinks I had and broke my fast with and it’s so tasty, refreshing and healthy – Strawberry Lemonade

I squeezed about 2 Lemons (depending on how tart you like it) and I like adding in some of the pulp too but it’s up to you

Added in about 6 – 8 Strawberries (depending on the sweetness)

Add in a little water and ice if you want it cold and blend it up

Was a great morning juice after I got in from walking Spirit – but really any time of the day is good!!

Hope you’re having an awesome day and thanks for stopping by

Holidays

Holidays

A couple of weeks ago I took my kids down to visit and help celebrate my dad’s birthday in Florida.

It was perfect timing as we all could use a break, and in less than a week my son boards the plane to take off on travels to Europe for at least 3 months………mixed emotions on that one!!

I brought along some photos to work on but I could not get them uploaded – too big and I could not down load any program to make them smaller.  I then found out about Mercury Retrograde and decided to sit back and totally relax and do NO work what so ever.  I needed that!  The one cool thing about that was having a side biz that payed for it all and was still working even though I wasn’t!! 🙂

Here are a couple of pics from a couple of things we did besides hand out at the pool, beach and enjoy the sun and hot weather!!

Florida-Blue-heron

 Went on this cool walk through a reserve where there were tons of different birds, Eagles, Turtles and Alligators.

Florida-Air-Boat

Went on an Air Boat ride – first time I will admit and if you get the chance  – go for it – it was a blast!!  The day we booked it though it was a tad chilly then in the boat, well it was cool and yes that is in Florida in the Everglades!!

Florida-Far-GatorYes we were looking for Gators – this is with my zoom lens.

Florida-GatorGetting closer……..

Florida-Gator-closeNo Zoom here, he was close……about 30 feet long and apparently he won’t bother us……….I didn’t take the chance!!

Florida-DadSharing a moment with my dad on his 70th – he’s looking pretty good I think!!
