Day 28 of my 29 day Cleanse

Recap of Day 27: Yesterday I rested and still got things done (what was meant to get done). I have to remember life's not a rush. My father-n-law used to say to me "you can't make chicken salad from chicken shit". That was him reminding me to stop trying to rush things. My husband reminds me of the same thing daily (and trust me he told me that 5 times yesterday). I am so thankful for the people in my life who guide me...from my amazing family and friends to my strong community. But when it comes to this health journey, my husband has been my partner and healer along the way. He calls me his muse for inspiration to help others,...

Day 27 of my 29 day Cleanse

Recap of Day 26: I stayed up too late the night before and then yesterday was a day of over committing and pushing it past my threshold. When I feel alive I want to do everything all at once in case I crash and burn and miss the chance tomorrow. I see how this habit starts; I start feeling good and I push it and see I made it, push even harder the next day and then BAM... I am done for. The irony is I've read the same message over and over lately "The thing we fear is the thing we attract". Ah Ha moment (as I type)...I just wrote "When I feel alive I want to do everything all at once in...

Day 26 of my 29 day Cleanse

Recap of Day 25: Who wants to talk poop? I figured you can't cleanse and not talk about it. Everyone thought the "she-shes" comment was funny, but I wasn't so sure I wanted to share anything beyond that. Why should I care? Everyone does it (some less and some more). So the truth is...I go at least 5-10 times a day (precleanse it was one glorious time in the morning) and let's just say it's has not been solid since day one, but no discomfort thankfully. Okay I officially just went there...I am slightly dying inside but I promised myself to blog the truth. I haven't been freaked out in the least. If my body has been in attack mode for 22 years, 25 days of...

Day 25 of my 29 day Cleanse

Recap of Day 24: I think my taste buds have finally grown up. In the last 24 days everything literally taste different. Examples, I used to tolerate tomatoes because I knew they were good for me and now I crave them along with jalapeños. Who am I? I am half Cuban and half Canadian, born with no spice in my blood other than garlic and cumin (and that's not even spicy). So last night I go into the fridge and have everything set for the family dinner except a meal for myself. I look around the kitchen with my normal "what can I do tonight without being totally bored?". I saw a vine ripe tomato, avocado, green onions, basil and a jalapeño and then...

Day 24 of my 29 day Cleanse

Recap of Day 23: I realized this cleanse makes me feels like a kid again, especially getting to eat all the fruit I want. It's fun to have the option of having a smoothie breakfast, lunch and dinner. The grocery shopping and veggies are the only adult part of this cleanse. Yesterday, my sister brought up that a friend of ours was confused by my switch from an anti-candida eating lifestyle to eating a ton of fruit (2 polar opposites). For those that don't know an AC diet is no fruit but green apples, no starches and heavy on the proteins. I did this for almost 3 years to control the candida overgrowth happening in my gut. It worked for...
