Becoming Healthy and in Shape Before I Turn 30 – Day 20

My last day. Wow I am soooo stoked. I woke up and ran to the scale. I lost a total of 20lbs. I was excited. Twenty pounds and my skin was as tight as it was before the detox. I thought nothing changed. I am sooo excited. I got dressed and went out to get a smoothie from this wonderful restaurant called Bloom. They have vegetarian and organic foods so it was a good mix for me and my sisters. We talked about my detox and how I felt and they were proud of me. …

Becoming Healthy and in Shape Before I Turn 30 – Day 19

Today I woke up at 6:00 a.m. without an alarm. I felt so refreshed. I went into the bathroom to start getting ready for work and noticed when I looked in the mirror under my eyes got lighter. I have had a problem with looking like a raccoon since I was younger. I usually would put foundation on or concealer to hide them. I decided not to get on the scale until tomorrow even though it was tempting. I got to my second job worked on the computer all day. I bought a smoothie for  breakfast and…

Eighteen days strong! It started out as a usual day. I was extremely happy for no reason at all. Got to work, and was extremely focused. I completed way more work than I was suppose to this morning. Around lunch time, I started feeling a little sluggish and my co-worker Kimmie gave me a few of her Dherbs Energizer Formula capsules she keeps in her purse and I felt like I had drank a 5 hour energy drink. I had so much energy the rest of the day, I didn’t know what to do. I…

Wednesday was a wonderful day. I woke up refreshed and happy. I had my smoothie and got to work. My co-worker Kelli and I were talking about how to become a vegan and all that you do and don’t do. She explained to me the different ways of going about making food that seems like what you would eat any day as a meat eater. My other co-worker Fatima made meatloaf from nuts, vegan cupcakes and other things that seemed to keep them satisfied with not just veggies and fruits. She said she would bring…

Tuesday was my day from hell. It started off wrong and ended wrong. Got up late and I seemed to be really worn out.I got my smoothie, and went to work. I couldn’t seem to focus all day. I got my work done though. I had my lunch, another smoothie and left work on time. I had to go to school even though I wasn’t feeling it. I went to school and by the grace of God we got out early. I started home and stopped by the store to get a bag of spinach…

Today I was late to work, finishing up a project for a real estate company. I had a late start on my food intake but made sure my pills were at least covered. I could notice the difference eating breakfast at a later time that my body was used to. I was kinda sluggish when I finished the project and started off to work. My smoothie usually lasts at least two and a half hours because I get a large and don’t just down it. I knew I wasn’t gonna leave for lunch so I brought a vegetable…

It’s Sunday and I punished myself by not watching football today. I did some homework and just sat down and thought about me and my goals. Dherbs says if you fall off, get right back on track as if nothing happened. So I did, I had a smoothie, veggie juice, a salad and nuts. The rash came back but only in the a.m. , by noon it was gone. I started to map out a plan and look at the vegetarian cookbooks to see the dishes I wanted to…

Today I decided not to go to school because of this spreading rash. It moved around my body all day. It was so uncomfortable and I looked like the Hunchback of Notre Dame.I had a house warming party to go to and I couldn’t go looking and feeling like this. I did not have any sea salt to put in my extra hot bath water so I put some tea tree oil that I use to clean my face in the water. It smelled so good and seemed to make the rash calm down. When I got out…

My day started as usual with a smoothie, snack, salad and off to my second job. On my way to work, I had the “how did you become a vegetarian” talk with a classmate of mine. He always seems so energized and never seems to have problems. No ever really sick, good complexion, you know, all that stuff. He said he went cold turkey. As I rolled my eyes as he talked, he explained it was your mind over your programing of we must have meat at a meal. He was right. When we went out, I would…

Is it Thursday already? The days are passing by so fast now. I’m kinda excited. I had a conversation with my boss today about my lifestyle changes I’m going to make. Right about now he is basically a vegetarian. Maybe every now and then he may have meat (mainly fish or turkey) but his girlfriend is very talented in the art of “Raw Cooking”. She is amazing. If I could make the dishes she makes I would have no problem being a vegetarian or vegan. I’m really gonna make an effort I told him….

Woke up hella early this time. Eyes just snapped wide open at 6:30a.m. As if I’m supposed to be up. So I followed suit and ate a banana this morning before getting my smoothie. This time Robeck’s was crowded and I proceeded to Jamba Juice by the job to get a smoothie. I got the equivalent to what I would usually get at Robeck’s, an all fruit smoothie with no boosts or juice and I by the end of the night, felt sick like a dog. Nothing was different. Went to school.  Had a…

10 days strong! Things are going OK. I find myself craving sushi, thinking of what exactly I’m gonna eat when I get off my detox.  Baby steps. I’m not gonna stray from my plan. Usual start, smoothie carrots, nuts, salad. After work, I have a client meeting and I’m skeptical on where they want to meet for dinner. His suggestion was Morton’s. All I could think was Oh-My-God! I love Morton’s, but what I always get is their sauteed spinach and Salmon. That is entirely…

So now I’m online on Dherbs.com article section reading about what could possibly happen on a detox. Low and behold, I find that it is possible to have an asthma attack.  My brain is now realizing that every blue moon when I’m with my sister, I smoke out of habit with her. I guess it was my body’s way of repairing the damage I did months ago. I start my day like the usual. Smoothie, work, school.. but when I got out of school I was hungry. I had some asparagus in the…

A week! A whole week. I guess I am gonna complete this with no problem. I am focused. I weighed my self this morning. Ten pounds lighter. Even more of a reason to keep pushing through it.   I went to Robecks and got another smoothie, except I had them put freshly squeezed orange juice in it.I had a bag of carrots today at lunch and unknowingly ate the whole bag. It was a large bag too. I proceeded home and realized I ran out of bags of salad. I stopped by…

Sunday Football!I decided I wanted to eat just fruit today for breakfast. I had a banana, grapes, plums and an apple. I didn’t eat them all at once though. Mixing fruits does not agree with me when I’m eating them whole.  A friend came by to watch the game and of course he is like “where are the snacks?”.So I air popped him some popcorn (I don’t use the microwave if I don’t have to. I just don’t like it and besides its better for you NOT to use), sprayed some olive oil on…

All Hollows Eve!!!The day I L.O.V.E. love! Dressing up.  I did the usual smoothie, salad, nuts and had some raisins today. School went by like a breeze. I do photography so I am in the dark for all of 4-5 hours at a time. This time my mind was clear. I did not have multiple conversations going on in my head like a usual day. It was perfect. I was way more focused than usual. Had an unusual craving for a beet salad from Wholefoods Market. So I…

Becoming Healthy and in Shape Before I Turn 30 – Day 5

This morning I checked out the dherbs.com website and found an article about the problem with Jamba Juice and their fruits. I vow to never attend that establishment again. It’s a great article and I advise people to read it. I MADE my smoothie this morning and headed to work. I still was feeling a little queasy and after it was done, I had a big cup of tea. Although it was the Hair-Skin-Nails tea, It still settled my stomach. I guess the hard part is over.      My co-workers insist on eating bad stuff that smells…

OK guys, today started off all wrong. I got up late, so I didn’t have time to pack snacks (more so I forgot while rushing). I stopped at Robeck’s for my smoothie as usual and made it to work. As I finished my smoothie and had a large glass of water I was slapped in the face by this smell. My co-workers were eating tuna melts from the truck downstairs. It smelled like heaven and naturally, my stomach began to churn for some of that wonderful meal smothered with cheese in between two pieces of…

Wow…today was a little different. My day started off the same as yesterday. Off to work, stopped for a smoothie, but this time…it did NOT help. I was hungry by 11:00a.m. an hour after I had the smoothie. I had a few nuts, even some all fruit and nut trail mix. Still no help. So I decided to down a 1.5 liter bottle of water and that helped. My co-worker Kimmie, who just got off a cleanse brought me a concoction she made of spinach and cilantro. Oh yeah, it was a…

Today was not as hard as I thought it would be. I started my day with a glass of water and positive thinking. I knew my time was short in being able to make myself a smoothie at home plus I had not gone shopping for all the necessary foods I need to complete the detox correctly, so I went to Robeck’s and picked up an all fruit smoothie. It was pretty satisfying. It kept me full most of the morning. For a snack I had some raw cashews that I always keep in my purse just in…
