I’m on the 4th day of my Crazy Sexy Diet cleanse and so far so good. I, of course don’t eat any meat or dairy and I rarely drink alcohol so it really hasn’t been too hard. The sugar, coffee and the gluten have been what I’ve had to cut out this week and that has been a little hard, especially when delicious smelling coffee is being brewed in the teeny little office I work in!! Oh, and the bag of chocolate hearts that was brought into the office too, that got my heart rate up a bit! But, I managed to ignore them both! I can do this for 16 more days, right?
My goal is not to lose a lot of weight, maybe 5 lbs, but to get rid of my little “muffin top” tummy. It’s been plaguing me since the birth of my second child. I know it’s the excess sugar and bread that I eat, so I will have to wait and see if this cleanse helps any.
So part of the cleanse is to drink green smoothies or green juice for breakfast. This part has been wonderful. I can’t wait to wake up and have my morning smoothie. They are the perfect energy that I need to start my morning. The salad dressing recipes in the book have been amazing too and I look forward to devouring my greens for lunch and dinner every day. YUM! I love salad anyway, but it’s nice to have an arsenal of tasty dressing to dress them up with.
I made a journal to keep track of my progress. The book has a checklist and questions to go through everyday and I’ve been enjoying the writing and tracking my yoga, which I used to do regularly, but somehow was lost. Now I’m getting up early and hitting the mat.
My journal was made with various pieces of paper folded in half and then grouped together into 6 signatures which I bound together using the coptic stitch. My first time ever trying this. I think I’ll be making more little journals.
