It's election day and time for a change.
The truth is, I have not been feeling well. My energy level dropped way down, I've been tired more than usual. Maybe part of it was the election this year? In any case, I could feel my body saying, HELP ME!
I own my part. I have reverted to consuming more sugar. It crept in innocently. . . a nibble here, a drink there, another nibble here, and so on.
I don't feel guilty. It's what happened. The good news is, my body has spoken, and I'm listening.
I have decided to do another 21-Day Standard Process cleanse under the guidance of my wonderful chiropractor who got me started. If you're interested to hear about it and how it's going, take a peek at my Day #2 video.
You might know my story with Rheumatoid Arthritis and, if not, you can read more here. I understand severe chronic pain. The SP cleanse was one of the puzzle pieces that showed me the inflammatory effects of sugar-- and how those effects could be lessened by eating whole foods and eliminating foods that were wreaking havoc. My goal was to feel better in my joints, yet I also let go of 30 pounds over two years.
I have received a lot of questions over the years about this program and the most valuable one is that it kick-started me to shift my eating habits long after the cleanse ended.
When I stick to eating better most of the time, I feel energized and my joints feel better.
I started the 21-day Standard Process cleanse again on November 7 and will be vlogging once a week so you can witness any changes that happen. I'll give you the good, the bad and the ugly!
By the way, I have never worked for Standard Process nor do I receive perks for writing about their company. This cleanse helps me feel better and I wanted you to know about it.
There are many wonderful whole food programs, doctors, coaches and nutritionists who can guide you. The SP cleanse is intended to be done under the supervision of a professional and I would be happy to make suggestions.
