The reason I can tell is because after my cleanse in October I was feeling SO MUCH vitality!! I was focused and very productive with my business stuff, sleeping great, feeling strong, everything going well. Then we had house guests for pretty much a whole month during November (and THAT was great as well, by the way) but obviously you get off routine. We went out to restaurants, events, Thanksgiving came about, there were leftover cookies, couldn't make it to the gym.. need I say more? You just get in a rut, and it happens very quickly.
But after leaving the gym this morning I said to myself- "What are you doing?? This is what you do for a living! You know exactly what you have do to fix it! and I need to fix it now." Why? Well, for one, my daughter has one week left of school before Winter break- which means I have ONE week to work on my Winter programs, buy presents, work on Christmas cards, etc..... not to mention I'd like to enjoy the holidays with energy, good mood, focus and clarity- for myself and my family!
So here is what I JUST did and will be doing:
A great way to get my body to quickly alkalize (it is probably acidic right now and my blood needs to oxygenate) I just made myself a powerful green juice with whatever I found on the refrigerator- kale, celery, ginger, lemon and half an apple. Super alkalizing and an energy boost!!
- Drink WATER:
Yep, I filled up my 27 oz. Klean Kanteen and I intend to drink two of those today, in addition to the juice, lemon water, and herbal teas. Water also helps oxygenate the body to give it more energy, as well as help with cleansing.
- Meditate- Breathing exercises:
See, when you get in a rut, is not just from the foods you eat. I tend to read more emails, browse (random stuff) online, and just get out of focus. So I know I need a little centering. All I did was 5 minute of closed eyes and focused breathing and voila! it prompted me to write this blog post and focus on what I have to do next. Yay!
- Plan my Lunch + Dinner:
Lately I haven't been great at planning my meals (again lack of focus and energy? yes). So while I juiced, I roasted a sweet potato and plan to have it with a salad for lunch. I also looked at my refrigerator and planned tonight's meal- salmon with broccoli. Perfect, quick, and easy!
- Plan a 3-Day Mini Cleanse:
I developed a 3-Day Mini Cleanse for my peeps that went to class last week so, its time for me to do it! Next week- Tuesday 12/16 to Thursday 12/18.. that's it. Easy and quick little reboot!
