Keeps the doctor away? Nah. But it sure keeps me pumped.
And I'm pretty sure feeling great about completing a 'challenge' is something to say for your health. Which in return means no doctor. Who goes anyway? I know I don't. I'm all about being all nat-u-raaaal. Medicine free. After changing my diet- into a vegan one. Wow. The benefits. I just truly don't get sick as often, and I feel good. Feel more energetic. Of course, don't get me wrong. There are many ways of being an unhealthy vegan. You can do anything the wrong way- believe me.
It's more than anything, more than being vegan, more than working out for 2 hours a day- it's MORE about being healthy all the time. Consistently. Not milking every moment of everything. Ya know? And I know you know! We all know.
We all were once babies ;) We know how to get what we want. But we also hopefully learned discipline...also. Which we have to carry on in our adult life with. So about this post. Where am I going with it- after that extreme long tangent.
I'd like to propose another challenge! My first one, in case you missed it, was a 5 day Cleanse. Which has been going surprisingly well for me and others who are in on it. :) So proud of you guys by the way! It ain't easy! Even though were all trying to act like it is ;)
The Challenge of the week! Join me or Join me not. All up to you! But I mean, why not? Don't you need a boost?
I know I still do- even after this cleanse. So for me, my reasons may be different than yours. But 5 days of being raw, isn't enough to kick my bad habits. Which are eating to much carbs alllllll the time. Talk about milking it :/ Yeesh. I 'used to be' a carb hugger. But since that 'used to be me'. I am changing my ways , acknowledging it and moving on. So I am challenging myself to another week of none of them. Then after that I will not crave them as much. Which will be awesome! Cause thats the issue. I'm flushing them all out in order to get rid of all my toxins. Which for me was mostly Coffee, Wine and unused Carbs. Unused in the manner of I didn't go running after that- to use my carbs wisely. I actually have had absolutely no workout plan the past few weeks after quitting the gym. It's hard, but I know some of us can't afford to maintain the cost of the gym unfortunately. And to be honest- I just don't use it enough, for what it's worth. I am nature person, I love being outside. So what am I doing? I need to go outside! Right!? Sometimes when we say something out loud, were like, for real? Wake up call! DUH! :) But no seriously. If there is something you've been wanting to do- and haven't been doing it, can we all just agree to tell ourselves to be quiet and just do it. :)In the nicest way possible I mean that!
Our inner self wants the best for us. So I don't know where that other voice comes from telling us to remain on the couch or not get up and do something, etc. Gotta make it go away and change it into a motivational voice. Hopefully the voice you hear as you read this! Even though you have no idea what I sound like :)
So for my proposal-
Same concept as my raw food cleanse.
This is a detox, I repeat, this is a detox. Either your ready or not to join the challenge.
Detox: No: coffee, alcohol. Bread/grains. Sugar. Oils
Includes: Veggies, Fruit, Nuts, Raw Cacao, Seeds, Beans & Legumes.
Outline: 3 meals a day- 1 meal being a smoothie. 1 meal being raw, 1 meal being cooked.

+Most importantly lots of water
