Well my big week of driving kids all over the place is behind me. I am not sure how I survived it except to say that I ate my way through the week, gaining 3# and wondering how other moms do it all year long.
I have 3 days to lose that weight before Thursday when I will be heading to Utah for a Young Living retreat where I will likely gain it back. That’s OK, next week I plan to start a month of personal boot camp to lose the weight I have gained lately. It’s just life I suppose…the scale goes up and down. Life.
But I am needing to get my head back in the game of taking better care of myself and July is going to be my month.
So in addition to losing a few pounds by Thursday, I have to pack for my trip and I haven’t even given a thought to what to pack. I have no idea what to wear for the day labeled as “business attire.” When I think of great business attire I picture those suits that Doris Day used to wear, so fashionable and figure flattering.
I just can’t pull that off. Partly because I’m more of loose and comfy with red cowboy boots girl and partly because my figure is more like a Dr. Seuss character. I will look around in some stores today to try to find something smart to wear, possibly from the Gap.
I am really looking forward to the retreat, despite the attire situation. I will be learning more about this amazing company and these products that I adore. They have changed my life in so many ways and not to get all cheesy, but I don’t know how I would have made it through this past year without them. You never know what’s around the corner, my friend. Having these oils and supplements helped me manage some tough emotional lows plus spiritual and physical trials. That’s why I can’t shut up about them….they are amazing!
Which brings me back around to my personal boot camp next week. Beginning next Monday, June 29, I am starting a month of clean eating. No sugar, no junk food, lots of veggies and protein. Then on Monday, July 6, I am going to do a 5 day cleanse that will really get my body/mind back in focus. I did this same cleanse a few weeks ago and really liked it. So I am going to do it again and I am hoping to get some friends to do it along with me!
Last time I did it with my friend Pattie and it was so helpful to know that she was enduring the same difficulties and feeling the same resolve. We held each other up, made jokes and just got through it together. She made it SO MUCH easier!
If you want to join me in this effort…..go order the Young Living 5-Day Nutritive Cleanse. It comes with everything you need (except for a few real foods you’ll be eating). I felt so great afterward, lost a few pounds and I noticed I wasn’t craving junk when it was over. That was nice….plus there’s no thinking. Just follow the recommended diet (you can Google it and find the pdf from Young Living with everything you need to know).
You can do it! It’s only for 5 days and I am giving you 2 weeks to mentally prepare and order your products. After it’s done, we will keep clean eating for the rest of the month as best we can (but you can just join for the cleanse if you want).
I’d love to add you to the Facebook group where we can support each other for the month! Pattie is going to host it with me, so you’ll have both of us to cheer you on! We will be frequently sharing other YL products that are helping us too. But the 5-Day Nutritive Cleanse is all you need to join us!
And if you are not yet a member of Young Living, now’s a great time to join! The kit is all new and so beautiful! Let me know if you have questions. Click HERE to learn more and get started!
