60-Day Reboot Update: Week One!

Here’s what the plan was for last week:

Week One (Sunday to Saturday)

  • Eliminate sugars, caffeine and trans-fats
  • Drink as close to a gallon of pure water as possible
  • A detox bath with Bentonite Clay (1 time)
  • Walk (not run!) at least 2 miles daily, preferably outdoors
  • 30 minutes of strength/stretch daily
  • 10 minutes on the trampoline daily to get the lymph system pumping

One week in and I’m actually starting to feel human again.  The first week only involved the elimination of sugar, caffeine and trans-fats.  I knew I’d have a headache but I wasn’t at all prepared for how my body actually reacted.

Aches.  Chills.  Migraine.  Stiffness.  Back pain.  Restless legs.  Ridiculous!!!!

The detox bath was pretty cool albeit slightly gross.  What starts as clay ends up kind of slimy and icky.  But I guess that means it did it’s job and pulled out some of those toxic metals.

As far as exercise goes, I might as well admit I wasn’t able to keep up with the plan.  I felt like I had the flu and my head was literally pounding most days.  Managing to stay out of bed and actually take care of my family was a feat that I was proud of!  I got a few walking miles in but nothing much beyond that.

I did great with the water at the beginning of the week.  I did start to slack off as the days passed, though, so I am determined to be faithful to it this week!

Now for the results after one week of misery determination:

  • Pounds lost:  5.6
  • Inches lost: 4 1/2
  • My hair, which has been very fragile and out of sorts, is showing marked improvement!  I’m almost more excited about that then the pounds and inches!
  • My energy is coming back!  And this time it is authentic rather than sugar/caffeine induced!
  • The aches are pretty much gone though I still feel a little stiff.  More water should help that, though.

The plan for this week:

Week Two

  • Maintain the elimination of sugar, caffeine and trans-fats but now limit diet to fruits, vegetables, seeds, nuts, grains and beans.
  • Drink as close to a gallon of pure water as possible
  • Walk at least 2 miles daily, preferably outdoors
  • 30 minutes of strength/stretch daily
  • 10 minutes on the trampoline daily

I’m actually not as intimidated by this week as I was at the initial start of the program.  I’ve conquered caffeine…I can do anything through the strength He graciously imparts to me when I exert my will for good!

My *Radical* 60 Day Reboot

Following the birth of my twins almost 19 months ago, I experienced a steady decline in health.  I’ve taken various medications, undergone a medical procedure and have investigated the use of herbal treatments.  Things are much improved but still not where they should be.

{I’d be remiss not to give a shout-out here to my awesome friend, Jill from Jill’s Home Remedies! She has shared invaluable information with me and while she doesn’t diagnose or prescribe, she has given me some tips for a regimen that would put me on the fast track to improved health.  And I can testify that the girl knows what she’s talking about…my greatest improvements came upon following her advice!}

I’ve decided to take the bull by the horns and do everything in my power to change my health for the better.  My plan may seem radical to some, but I’m ready for radical!  I’m ready to reclaim my health, my energy, my body, my life.

**My goal for this “fast” is to reap the physical benefits of cleansing my body of impurities and retraining myself to make healthier choices.  Though the intended purpose of this is not a spiritual fast, there is no point in doing anything without God at the center!**

So here’s the plan: 60 Day Reboot

**Goal bedtime is 9pm–Rise time is 5am**

As I enter Week 9, I plan to ease back into a normal diet that I can share with my family but hopefully I will have established healthier eating habits.  I’m not a breakfast eater, so I will have Shakeology (<<–affiliate link) most mornings to jump-start my day!  My goal is to incorporate better choices into our eating plan long term.

I’m trusting the God who fearfully and wonderfully made me to bring the healing I seek!  May it be so for you, too, if you should choose to embark on this journey!
