Cleaning Up For Christmas
Oh my gosh, yes, it’s that dreaded word!!! Christmas! Halloween is now officially over, and the next big holiday a lot of people are expecting is Christmas (though I know for my northern American friends, it’s Thanksgiving!).
I’ve been reflecting on where I was last Christmas, and where I’m heading to this Christmas. Last Christmas I was in the middle of my new Life Journey.
At that time I had just recently completed a 10 week challenge at the gym, was sitting around 67kg (147lbs), looking towards achieving my goal weight of 60kg (132lb) sometime in the New Year. My goal over Christmas was to not gain weight – and, yep, I achieved that goal. In fact, I lost weight over Christmas!!
So, for this end of year celebration, as we head rapidly towards the end of 2014, I was looking at where I’ve come from and where I’m heading too.
Over the last few months, I’ve been feeling a little bit on the sluggish side, so I knew in my heart it was time to complete a 30 day nutritional cleansing program again. It kicks off today!!
As it was day 1, I decided to do my weights and measures (as I’ve not measured myself since I hit my goal weight of 60kg in March this year. I was very surprised at the results!
- Firstly, I am now the same weight – 59kg (130lb)
- Secondly, most of my measurements are the same – EXCEPT FOR:
Surprisingly this measurement has decreased by a full 9cm since March
THE UPPER ARM (BICEP)
Not surprisingly, this measurement has increased by 2cm since March
How happy was I with these results? A toned butt and biceps? Awesome!!!!
Anyway, that was the most surprising element of the measurements that were taken.
My goal for this 30 day cleanse is to improve my energy, clean up my insides, possibly release another 3 – 4kg (6 – 8lb) and increase my motivation as we head into the silly season.
In the way of accountability, here is my ‘before’ shot:
During my cleanse days, I will be actively recording how they progress on my Facebook page.
I will be undertaking some deep cleanse days, and these involved two days, yes two days, of fasting. These are supported by nutritional snacks, cleansing herbal drinks, lots of water and my special treat – a green tea infused dark chocolate!
So, enjoy my journey and I’m excited about seeing the final toned information after 30 November!
