well finals were long and stressful to say the least, but im happy to say im home for the summer with no more back pain! ive been catching up on my sleep this weekend and am reprogramming my system around being home, as well as starting my detox.
i do the martha’s vineyard detox diet [can be found online or in your local library] which combines high density and high antioxidant green and berry drinks to 1. get rid of the toxins in your body, and 2. ensure you get the correct amount of fruits and vegetables in a day. it is an all liquid diet, which can be challenging, but it is truly rewarding in the end.
im starting my detox today, and it will last 7 days. after that, i will have 4 recovery days in which i will reintroduce foods to my body, but they will only be certain healthy foods.
from there on, im going to work to keep my body toxin free by staying away from processed foods and getting enough fruits and vegetables as well as exercise.
as my diet does consist of only liquids, its important to limit exercise as too much will cause your body to go into starvation mode, and you also have the risk of fainting, so im going to stick to toning exercises rather than doing cardio.
this diet takes a lot of sell control, determination, and motivation, as it is hard to resist foods that are in front of you all day long. however, im determined to finish the full 7 days!!
