Energy... please come back!

The weekends are never long enough for me. It is Sunday night, and I am just as tired as I was on Friday night. It seems as if I never really feel rested anymore.

I feel like I slept away my Saturday. I got up at about 8 a.m., then fell back to sleep at around 10 a.m. and slept until almost 3 p.m.! The day was gone, and I really got nothing accomplished. Today I made myself stay up, but found myself with no energy to do anything. I am always SO TIRED.

I was hoping with the improvement in food and the addition of exercise this week that I would feel somewhat better. I have ate more fruits and veggies and drank more water this week than I have in MONTHS. I can tell a difference in the way my body feels, I guess... Just not any energy yet.

I have decided to do a cleanse/detox using Isagenix products. I have read and watched videos and researched and I think this will help me get my body back into working order.

I have read enough and learned so much about the human body on this journey so far... and I know one thing. I have abused my body for a long time. I have yo-yo dieted for the majority of my life. I have NOT taken care of myself. I think this is why even when I do diet and exercise, my body still holds onto the fat for dear life.

I chose a 30-day detox because I think it will take at least that long to get me back into semi-working order. Honestly, I hope it helps me lose weight, but I really want this product to get me on a healthy playing field. I am tired of dieting. Diets suck.

I desperately want to FEEL GOOD again, no matter what size I am. I need to start taking good care of myself so I can be the best mother and teacher I can be. I am worth the time, effort, and money that it will take.

So get ready! Like everything else I do on this journey, this is the center stage! I am excited about this because my gut tells me that it is time. It is time... :)
