I completed my modified Shakeology cleanse yesterday. I have to tell you – I feel so good! I don’t eat a lot of junk food, but we had started eating out a lot and I started eating way too much dairy. Cleansing all of that out of my body for a few days was exactly what the doctor ordered. I slept so well last night and I woke up this morning feeling really good and my stomach wasn’t pissed off at me like it had been the end of last week. I did lose 3 lbs, which surprised me because I didn’t really think I’d lose anything considering my normal diet is very similar to the cleanse (well take away 2 shakes and replace that with lunch).
It took me back to how good I felt when I finished the reset after 2 weeks of eating vegan. I go back and forth with should I go vegan. I don’t really want to…but I always feel so GOOD when I eat vegan for a few days or more that I feel like I should give it a good college try to see if anything longer than 2 weeks would be good for me.
The hubby wants to do the reset again very soon and obviously I’m so on board to do that. I’m not sure when we will do it, perhaps something for March after we move. I think if I do decide to go vegan for an extended period of time I can’t think of a better way to transition into it then the reset. The hubs wants to do it again because he is not feeling very good. He has not gone back to his old pre-reset eating ways at all, but I think he wants to do it again to push his habits more towards the good. He and I went in different ways after the last reset. I tried to maintain a similar to the reset but more food so I could support my exercise diet and he worked on replacing the foods he was eating with healthier options. Organic granola instead of Captain Crunch cereal. Organic cookies instead of oreos. Now – yes this is better than his old diet. He is eating healthier foods and I’m cooking healthier foods. But at the end of the day, organic junk food is still junk food. He knows he needs to make some changes and figures doing the reset again will help him break these habits.
