What I learned, gained, wanted to pass on, etc from this weekly goal:
- Be prepared as much as you can prior to starting the detox program. Specifically, if you are a coffee drinker, slowly start weaning off the caffeine a few days prior to starting (thank you to my BFF for this suggestion). Cutting out that caffeine cold turkey was brutal!!! Also, the program allows many salads and vegetable soups-do as much prep work for these meals before starting the program. Making a salad is quite easy no?? Not so much when you have a raging headache and your body just wants to curl up on the couch. Next time, I will have all my salad fixings chopped and ready to go before hand as well as a big batch of soup already made.
- Pick a time period when there isn't too much going on...maybe a long weekend? I started on a Wednesday which is typically the busiest day of the week in our family-bad idea. I thought it would be a good day to pick since we would be so busy I wouldn't have time to think about it....I was mistaken.
- Don't be discouraged or beat yourself up if it doesn't happen the first time. I was a-okay with my decision and think I made the best one for me and my family. And I will most definitely be attempting this again.
My goal for week #5 will be posted later in the day!
