So about a month ago... my boyfriend and I decided we wanted to do a cleanse. And not a super simple one. We wanted to do a diy version of the Clean program. Or I did- and I persuaded him to get on board. As we were just about to get ready to do it- thankfully we didn't buy anything for it- cause I got extra sick, for almost 2 weeks actually. I still have a cough. I actually went to a Dr. and it turned out I had bronchitis. Not fun. It was really bad- anyway that is mostly over now. My voice is almost fully back. Anyway- I was sad when I was sick because I had planned all of this cleanse stuff out and then felt like I was unable to do what we had planned. Obviously recovering from being sick takes a bit of time. I haven't worked out in almost a month now. Terrible! But starting over tomorrow. Things are changing. 31 days begins. I was going to do 30 days- but since I turned 31 in January. I'm doing 31 days. Blah blah blah. SO I'm sure you might be wondering why this challenge? Well I have been living in a weird space the past 6 years. Weird space in my head honestly. I haven't been taking care of myself the way I know I need to. And I mean that with my thoughts and also my choices. I have over indulged in things that don't serve me while also not talking to myself in the most loving way. After watching Will Smith's instagram story about 'self love is self discipline'... I just know the time is now for me to give myself some extra deep self love that I have definitely not been giving. SO with that being said. I'm going back to the start. Where I started with this entire blog.
- Making sure I have veggies/greens at every meal
- Working out/ being active every day
- Not drinking alcohol
- Eating fully vegan/plant based
- Taking probiotics/supplements daily
These are just some of the things I'll be doing for myself. Because this is what I need to do for me.
I want to create new healthy habits and let go some of the ones that just aren't good for me anymore.
Follow along on my journey! I'll be adding daily entries here if you're interested :)
p.s. this is the coconut yogurt I made at home! I followed the recipe from @minimalistbaker
It only uses 2 ingredients!
- 2 cans of full fat coconut milk
- 3 capsules of probiotics
