I don't talk a ton about these things online and it's a conscious choice. And it's always a fine line for me. What to share and what not to share. It feels good to share some things and scary to share others.
I do want to share my latest goal though - completing a healing juice cleanse. I want to document it and to let it get me back in the groove of blogging. I know juicing is a trendy thing and all the major health food stores sell pre-made juice cleanses, but I've given this a lot of thought and done my research. This is not a trendy cleanse and it's not to lose weight.
I'm having some health issues that I won't get into here, but I firmly believe that my body needs a break. Juicing gives your digestive system a hand and let's your body rest while still providing the nutrition it needs to survive. Basically, the food will be broken down into its basic components and will be easily digestible when I drink it, leaving only minimal effort for my body to contribute.
Weeks 1-2: Juice, Clear Liquids & Tea Only / Yoga
Week 3: Juice, Tea & Raw Foods Only / Yoga and Weights
Weeks 4+: 80-85% Raw Food / Yoga, Weights and Running
I may do the first stage for more or less time, it really just depends on how I'm feeling. And if I do, I'll just push the other stages back. I'll share the juice recipes that I grow to love and the raw food recipes that I use to transition back. I also want to share the juicer that we bought and the process we used to pick it. But for now, I'm just sharing the goal.
Have you ever done a juice cleanse?
