I decided to do a three-day detox, this week, and I’m happy to report I made it! Having autoimmune disorders, from endometriosis to PMDD, and hypothyroidism (to name a few), I learned that clean eating is one of the best ways to alleviate symptoms. But, let’s be realistic, not all of us are made to live on carrot juice. Nevertheless, I did partake in a 3-Day Detox, this week. I’m going to share the basic guidelines I followed. What I ended up eating, each day, along with how I felt.
Sometimes, on rare occasion, I am asked for my take on diet & exercise. I usually assert my personal tongue in cheek phrase, Snickers and Squats.
I am not embarrassed to admit that I have a very healthy appetite. I can out-eat most men. I’ve entered more than one All-You-Can-Eat Wing Bowls- Once, against a large group of high school boys (as their church youth leader) and eh hem, won first prize. And yes, I am often spotted holding up buffet lines with my second helping of dinner or dessert. What can I say? My appetite is extraordinary.
Holy cow! Why have I waited this long? All this time, I never knew what I was missing. Yes, I had been to Aldi before. But, it was a while ago. It wasn’t essential for me to drive a few extra miles to save some money. Not to mention, I hadn’t realized how much of an upgrade this store has received. It’s much nicer and cleaner than I remembered and the selection of products is much better. But, after my visit this week, I’m totally hooked! From this point forward, I will always do some shopping at Aldi!
As you now know, my family has morphed into minivan contendership, practically overnight (read about that here), I think it’s about time that I start shopping at Aldi! It’s ridiculously great quality food and fantabulous prices. Come and see. I’m so excited about my finds. Almost as much as I’m excited about my new minivan!
Question for you stay at home moms (and retirees). Do you ever go through periods where you lack motivation? Perhaps more than when you were working and somewhat programmed into a daily routine?
It just so happens that there are easy ways to maintain a youthful look. These are things you can implement right now!
