Now this is new...

Happy Halloween everyone! I hope that everyone was able to keep their hands out of the candy bucket this year! What I thought would be a struggle was actually not so bad today!

I decided to go ahead and start my Isagenix 30-day cleanse on Thursday. I knew I had a rough weekend coming up, with a lot of plans and eating out, but I went ahead and did it. I figured that even if I couldn't follow the plan 100% that I could at least try. I am so glad I did.

I was not 100% on plan this weekend, and I'm ok with that. Like I said, I knew that it would be a busy weekend and a lot of temptation was ahead of me. But I feel like being on this plan helped me stay focused. And let me tell you... I feel SO much better already.

I have had about 10 hours of sleep all weekend and I have still had so much energy. I will do a full review of the Isagenix products later when I can do them justice, but I believe that these products had a lot to do with my energy being up. Last weekend I had NO energy and I slept all weekend. This weekend was much different.

I am not hungry at all, and my sugar cravings have went WAY down. Tonight when my kids were trick-or-treating, after my second bite-sized piece of candy I just felt... "done". I turned down candy! If you have read my blog for a while you know that I NEVER turn down candy. But it just tasted too sweet and almost made me feel sick. I have also been CRAVING water, so I know my body likes being hydrated again.

I also feel like I am better able to stop eating when I am feeling full... period. Last night I went out to eat at The Cheesecake Factory (one of my planned outings for the weekend). The appetizer we were sharing was AWESOME, but instead of cramming those nachos until they were gone, I was just able to **stop**. I was actually so full from those nachos I was not hungry for an entree. So I decided to split something with the person I was with. After the food came to the table, I didn't even eat it. I took it home in a to-go box, and it's still sitting in my refrigerator!

I am going to weigh in the morning again to just see if there is any progress yet. But as good as I feel right now, and since my week is plan-free, I am going to commit to staying 100% on plan this week. I still haven't done a full detox day, so I am interested to see how that goes. You are supposed to have a few meal replacement days ahead of you before you do a full detox, so I want to make sure my body is ready.

I am so excited to feel this good after such a hectic weekend. Here's praying that next week will keep me feeling this way!


  1. I'm so admired by your strength... I always get tempted by chocolate and pastries and about 98% of the time I give into the temptation :(
