It's only perfect to title this post "Shake it Out". Pretty funny actually. Cause as I sat here about to write an entire post on the Cleanse I'll be starting tomorrow. This song came on my spotify next. How fitting. Because it's basically a song about letting go, and starting new. And thats exactly what I am going to do! Sometimes we just need to shake it out. Restart. Reboot. Etc,
I'm in dire need. So I've decided to dive in to a challenge. Discipline doesn't always come easy to me. And breaking bad habits are always hard, I'm sure for everyone. I'm the kind of person who just has to say enough is enough and be done. All or nothing is how I play the game. Can be good and bad. But it's just how I am and how I'm best at doing things. So here I go. I'm also not the kind of person that likes to follow others. I like to create my own things. So I've created my own plan, fit to me. I started thinking.... hmm. I'll do a juice cleanse to jump start getting out of this mood I've been stuck in :( But no. thats a bit to drastic for me. I've never done a juice cleanse. But reading the pros and cons, I understand the cons more than I see pros. And it's just not what I'm looking for, with the main goal I'm seeking. Which is a better balance with eating and a tad bit of weight loss. For some reason I've been over indulging, I know- it's not even the holidays. But I've been slacking, as we all do sometimes. But I had a wake up call today.ANd hey, all I can say is I'm thankful to have gotten the call now, rather than later.
We need to continue to challenge ourselves throughout our lives. I've been a huge slump lately with not many auditions, etc. Acting is my love, and I've not been doing much after a web series I did which had me so happy during that time. So I've been sort of depressed without it. Thankfully I have a very huge commercial audition next week (Yay!) So I feel motivated again. And feel the need for a reset. Would you like to reset with me? So far. My plan is for 7 days.
All raw food. I have a juicer so it's a bit less expensive for me. I understand if it's not obtainable for everyone, so in your own way, the way you know is best for you! Restart with me in that way that you can obtain. It feels good doing something with someone else! So I'll hope you'll join me. I will be posting my progress and recipes along the way of course :) But just for a bit of a breakdown of what I've planned is best- heres a look.
Snack - Fruit or Nuts
Snack - Fruit or Nuts / or Juice
Dinner- Raw meal
Alright ya'll. Whose with me!? Any questions. Leave in comments below.
I will be doing this for 7 days. But I might continue for more days, if things are going well. If not I will be adding in slowly grains and proteins after day 7 for lunch. I'll post after though, to let you know wh
