Starting on Monday?

I received my Isagenix 30-day cleanse today, and I am very excited to start. But I'm wondering if I should start right away, or start on Monday. Monday is November 1, which seems like a great day to start something - especially something that is lasting 30 days. But there is a part of me that says "Why wait?".

By waiting, am I giving myself permission to have "one last" weekend of eating? Is that really what I want to do? Do I even care about Halloween candy?

I just don't want to set myself up for failure on this product. I want so badly to do well, and for this detox to help me to get my body back into working order. I know the first few days of anything like this can be challenging, so why start on a weekend where I know I will have challenges? Not just Halloween, but a party on Friday night and a Fall Festival on Saturday.

But I also have that part of me that says, "Just do it. The time is now."

I'm gonna sleep on it.

Tomorrow is my ultrasound that will hopefully tell me and my doctor how long I will be able to hold off on surgery. I pray that I can wait until summer, but if it's bad I will do what I have to do. I have four kids to think of, and to stick around for. I have to take care of me.

I went to they gym on Monday, but had parent-teacher conferences with my students last night until late. Tonight, I was simply in too much pain to go, and then we had church. My goal is to go tomorrow after my ultrasound. I have taken the whole day off from work. I'll also be early voting... PLEASE get out there and vote!


  1. Voting is done -- absentee ballot this year because I got drafted to work the polls. Wonderful!

    Question about the detox and your dilema. I have never done this type of thing so maybe this is a silly question. Is there any reason you'd want to be close to a restroom? Like any side effects? I'd think I would want to start on the weekend if there were (instead of at work-especially in a classroom).

  2. I would probably wait to start on Monday. If it's something where you can't eat or drink certain things, then why waste it?

  3. Trust your intuition, and be gentle on yourself. You can do this! Keep us posted about your experience!

  4. I'm odd. I say the moment you want to start something, do it THEN. We all seem to wait on "new" weeks, months (err, and years, lol) to begin a regimen - don't waste time. Hope the system works well for you, whatever day you deem appropriate, though! ;o)
