Spring cleaning! 🙂 I started a juice feast on Monday … yippee! I went into it thinking I would go 7 days, give or take a couple of days on either side. I usually have a number in my head & am pretty determined to stick to it … but not this time. I ended up eating dinner last night on day 4 … fresh veggies & kale chip crumbs, followed by a pear … I was feeling really hungry & emotional and I let myself follow my needs. Could I have pushed through it? Sure, & I often do. But I didn’t want to.
This morning I got up & juiced 2.5 quarts & decided to modify my feast into a cleanse. I will continue to drink lots of juice, eat fresh fruit & enjoy 1 meal a day as I carry on with my spring cleaning a few more days. While this wasn’t my original plan, sometimes we just have to listen to what our bodies are saying. This is the perfect plan for me for where I am right now and I am grateful that I was able to pause and listen.
Wishing you all a juicy weekend & a very Happy Mother’s Day to all of you mamas! You are such a gift to the world. xoxo Thank you for being you.
