It's Almost Summer:: Cleanse-o-rama
I've been feeling so sluggish and pretty disgusting. Physically I feel bloated and tired, and mentally, I'm not coping with the whole work/life/stress balance. As a result, last week I drank almost a whole bottle of wine two nights in a row. It's not something I am proud of, and afterwards I had a talk with myself and decided it was time to do something. Being a boozehound is not the solution for stress.
As well, my weight has been ever so quietly sneaking up behind me. On my bottom. Yep. Baby got back.
And my moods? OH EM GEE! I am totes Moody Judy.
So what PMM? So what do we care? I know. I can hear you through the computer screen (and I can see dead people). But quit being cynical.
I'm taking the bull by the horns.
A while ago I did this great cleanse with health and wellness guru, Nat Kringoudis. I was so intimidated by the thought of it, but threw myself in, and mid and post cleanse felt incredibly good. Plus it kick started me to get back in to looking after myself better.
I'm doing it again peeps! Starting tomorrow, I am a-cleansing!
And if you're not up for a pre-Christmas cleanse (and why not?!), Nat is running another after Christmas - so you can wash that Christmas funk right outta your hair.
And remember earlier this year I was walking like a complete and utter champ? And then the chair fell on my foot just before Easter, and well, I turned into a man and didn't go to the GP? Uh huh. Well I've shirked off my responsibility to my body and not done much moving since then. I know. Lexi. Bad. Bad. Bad.
But you'll never guess. I am booked in for my first session at the gym on Tuesday morning. I know right! I am so excited I even got some new sports bras. CRAZY!
What are your top tips for fitting exercise and healthy eating into your day?
Will you cleanse along with me?
And can you squat like the lady up there?
