Detox: A Fresh Start in 2010 | Crazy Sexy Life


2 weeks tomorrow
(Thursday Dec 24th
since we began drinking fresh
fruit & veggie
smoothies every morning for breakfast 
&
eating healthy dinners every nite.
We tossed all 
"crap"
foods from our fridge and cupboards
when we started this;
 our fridge 
was almost empty.
Now it's FULL of organic fruits & veggies!
We added some *kale* to the mix this week
(that was new to us)
and like it.
A dark green leafy veg light in flavor
very good for you.

There is no turning back at this point
~ we love it ~
:)

It does cost a little more to eat this way
but our quality of life 
is worth it!

I am still waking up feeling refreshed every morning.
I can't stress this enough!
I went from dragging my butt to the coffee pot upon
waking
feeling unwell every morning,
until we made this change.
I am also waking B4 my alarm
goes off every morning
which feels SO good!!!

As far as my "severe" back pain
I now know some is related to
hormones
peri-menopause/menopause.
I did some research the other night, and found that
fluctuation of
 estrogen levels 
have an impact on the way joints and muscles feel.
So I'll be adding new exercises they claim will help.
The strange part of the pain is
it shows up
severe
about a week b4 my period
(when they decide to randomly show up)
and lasts roughly 3-5 days in.
So 
the day those are
OVER
hopefully 
will be the day
this horrible pain subsides.

We also bought some cocao powder
and made some chocolate sorbet tonight using
organic raw sugar
2% milk 
vanilla
and 
ice
it was sooo good!
