I strayed from my plan a tiny bit to have leftovers from last night (roasted turkey and veggies) and then did my food prep for tonight (vegetable broth with brown rice, kale salad with tomato, cucumber, and avocado, some raw almonds, and some raw veggies to snack on).
After only a day of eating healthier, I’m already feeling so much better. I was stressing over a few little things when I realized that by stressing, I’m missing the point of this whole thing.
I’m doing a BP Cleanse, not to cleanse, but because I love the juices that I’ll be drinking and I love the healthy benefits of those juices, and because I need a little kick in the pants to get back to my healthier habits. By easing in and out of my cleanse, I’m eating a ridiculous amount of fruits and veggies, and juicing for 3 days gives my GI system a little bit of a break. I indulged on vacation and I indulged after I got back, so having some structure and routine and a plan to follow is helping me shift back to neutral and get rid of some of these unhealthy cravings.
It’s totally ok if I don’t do this perfectly. The biggest thing is remembering how important it is to take care of myself and treating my body the best I can. The yummy foods and juices are just icing on the cake.
(Wait…no cake! I’ll work on the metaphor…)
