When Austin was about a year old I was exercising regularly, by this I mean I was loving the high I got from it, every morning I was up early working out, taking A for walks in her stroller during morning snack time (she munched, I walked). I was losing weight, not quite to where I wanted to be, but I was feeling a lot better about my body. Then I hit the dreaded plateau, you know what I’m talking about? Where nothing changes in your routine nor your weight/body.
I went and bought a body cleanse and detox. It required taking 1-4 pills a day as well as drinking a certain amount of water, depending on which day of the cleanse you were on. I was excited to try it, get rid of anything that might be gunking up my system. I waited to see a difference of some kind. Hair, skin, weight, bloating, anything.
What I got, I wasn’t expecting. I got dog sick. I mean nose dripping and stuffed up, yes at the same time! Sore throat, cough, aches and pains. Within days. Not what I was expecting at all. I couldn’t exercise or walk, how was this suppose to help me? I finished off the package, and days later I started feeling better. Ugh, is this what is suppose to happen? Or maybe I already had the germs in my system and it just happened to come to at the same time I was doing the cleanse and detox.
So why am I thinking about maybe doing another, I think I am a sucker for punishment.
