{ i survived the cleanse }

today is my first day being done with my 6 day cleanse that I have been doing for the past week. I am so glad to be done. it was so hard but I am so proud of myself for sticking to it and not giving up. I am happy to say that this cleanse was very successful and I am 12.7 pounds lighter then I was before. I know that entering this new chapter after cleansing my body is going to be tough and I am going to have to work extra hard to keep the weight off and to continue to loose and better my lifestyle. 
throughout the cleanse I noticed something’s about myself that may have kept me from losing weight and becoming healthy in the past.
  • I have no will power 
meaning that if I start a diet and that night my family goes out to eat and I choose to go with them and just tell myself that I will be good and not give into anything. dinner starts and there's some delicious bread sitting in the middle of the table. yum. what is my head and stomach saying? just take a bite or only have one piece it won't hurt. you're hungry come on now. and then I would just give in.
at the start of this week I told myself that was something that I was going to have to work on and be extra careful about. one night this week I decided that I would make some cupcakes and deliver them to some friends. I realized that this would be the perfect opportunity for me to test myself and to test my will power. well I made the cupcakes and frosted them with my most favorite icing and didn't even lick my fingers. I was SO proud of myself you have no idea. this is just the start. temptations are everywhere people. I mean who wouldn't want to eat some carrots and broccoli instead of a cupcake?

  • I can do anything I set my mind to
simple as that. your body isn't giving out on you. it's your mind telling you that. I pushed through and so can you. 

  • healthy way isn't the funnest but it's what is best :)
lots of times it is so much more convenient to just drive through some fast food place and grab something to eat instead of going home and preparing a healthy meal that will take longer. believe me. haha. it is what is best though. my body will thank me 60 years from now. new goal? no more fast food. or jamba juice. jamba is my weakness. it’s so yummy. but why waste your money on that when you could make a fresh green smoothie at home? ;)


the cleanse was awesome and I am already starting to feel better and I can feel my body getting stronger. my jeans are even getting looser ;) that's one of the greatest feelings i tell ya. 
i promise not to be the annoying girl that blogs every single day about my journey though. i am just super excited!!! i believed in myself and you can believe in yourself!

happy sunday darlings
