Well. I’ve decided to give the Standard Process 21 Day Cleanse another shot. My main goal in doing this again is not for weight loss (although I wouldn’t be mad if I lost some weight) but to regain healthy eating habits. Even though I’ve been tracking with weight watchers over the last year or so the scale really hasn’t moved. Basically it’s because I’ve been cheating myself. Either not working out or fooling myself on serving sizes. I snack with my kids and don’t track it or I eat 5 of something but only track one. Sweets. Oh yummy sweets. These are my downfall. This is where I go when I’m stressed. I’ll bake a cake. Eat half. With the promise to myself that I’ll do better the next day.
Saying that today wasn’t a challenge would be a lie. I started the day off great, then around 2pm I found myself caving to one of my weaknesses…frosted animal crackers. I bought them for the kids, knowing full well I would have a hard time resisting. So after I indulged I felt like crap, my stomach bloated and of course I confessed to my group that I’m cleansing with. They were all so supportive. It was a great feeling. I’m hoping these cravings subside even a little.
