Toxin Overload

Posted In: Healthy Foods

May was a fun month.

 

Too much fun!  I traveled to Pittsburgh to start working with corporations for their wellness programs (so much fun!), after that, we had a big soccer tournament and end of the season party at my house… and THEN it started the wedding festivities.

My brother in-law got married on the 16th… but between the pre-wedding activities, the out of town guests, and the fact that it was a destination wedding… it was basically 2 weeks of eating horrible and drinking a lot of alcohol.  We had fun though, for sure.

 

But that last week of May, I could feel it catching up with me.  I was feeling really tired.  Like, exceptionally tired.  More tired than I should be.  I was foggy, couldn’t concentrate and my clothes were definitely fitting tighter.  It was at that point that I knew I needed a good cleanse.  I needed to get rid of all the toxins in my body and get a restart.

 

I have read about all different kinds of cleanses, detox programs and fasts.  A lot of them scared me because they were long… like a week+  Yikes!  I don’t want to tax my system that has already been taxed all month long. Luckily, there are people out there that agree with me.  So, yesterday I started a 3 day detox called the 3 Day Refresh.  It consists of 3 shakes a day, plus a fiber drink, 2 reasonable snacks and a lunch and a dinner.  I was excited to find out that there was actual FOOD involved in this one as well!  It’s definitely not a lot and it is all fruits and veggies, no animal protein.

 

No gonna lie.  The first day was rough.  The strange part is, I wasn’t hungry ever… but what I did learn is that I have gained some pretty bad snacking habits!  I had to stop myself about 5 times throughout the day from wanting to go to the pantry to graze.  Ugh.  So not only am I cleansing my system, but I am definitely testing my mental ability to stay away from the snacks!  I am only on day two but am feeling REALLY good.  No more foggy head.  No extreme fatigue.  I am really shocked at how well I do feel.

 

So… this is kind of a throw away post, because I just wanted to share what I have been up to these past few weeks and why there haven’t been any new posts from me.  But I can’t wait to share my whole 3 Day Refresh experience with you all.  I said I would never do a cleanse, that I thought they were silly… but I am definitely taking that back now.  I never really looked at added sugar, alcohol, and refined carbs as toxins… but after feeling the way I have felt, I know for sure I was on toxin overload!
