Crazy Sexy Cleanse Update: Days 15, 16 & 17 + Recipes

Hello my friends!  Only  one more update post after this one and then the 21 day cleanse will come to an end.  I have to say that it won’t end here for me though.  I have learned SO MUCH about myself, eating, foods, life, healing methods, etc. that I will continue to incorporate them into my daily routines.  Let’s see how the past few day have gone.

Day 15

Woke up feeling good this morning saying “Today I choose LOVE, joy, comfort, abundance, prosperity, compassion and miracles.”  Set your day this way and it will run better.  I had lime cayenne water with a few drops of stevia first followed by a gorgeous beet/carrot/lemon/swiss chard juice.  Delicious!  Afterwards, I dry skin brushed and went outside to sun bathe for 20 minutes.  I have found that by dry skin brushing before sun bathing allows the sun to penetrate skin layer and absorb better due to skin being stimulated/ pores open and dead skin cells removed.

Prepared a HUGE superfood Acai bowl topped with frozen organic cherries, local bee pollen, Superberry Symphony and homemade acai granola.  I added some Sunwarrior Vanilla protein to the main recipe with a few other touches and it was PHENOMENAL!  Nutrient dense food is the BEST!  I wasn’t hungry till dinner.

Scott and I had some errands to run in town.  One of them was dropping off some stuff to the local thrift store.  Several weeks prior to starting this cleanse, I started to de-clutter the house.  I really got into it and still implementing it now throughout this cleanse.   Clearing out the clutter in your home will do more than make your space look nice and inviting. According to feng shui philosophy, de-cluttering your home will also help to free up space in your mind and allow for positive energy to flow into your life.  It is amazing how getting rid of stuff that has been sitting around collecting dust, not being used, etc. is so empowering, freeing for more good to come into your life.  I’ve de-cluttered the kitchen (first place I started), closets, book shelves, everywhere.  I am SO MUCH HAPPIER with less.  I will write a post about it sometime.  It is very interesting and inspiring!

We came home and spent several hours working in our yard while the weather was nice.  Got a great sweat on – detoxing, baby! – and a great cardio at the same time.   Came inside and drank a large glass of watermelon juice, cleaned up and spent some time at the computer writing.  I wanted to share with you the new way I am working at the computer.  My lovely friend, Lisa at Healthy Body Now posted on Facebook the other day that she sits on a HUGE exercise ball instead of a chair while working at her computer.   It was so brilliant I had to try it.  I did and LOVE it!  You have to balance so you are working your core and all kinds of muscles at the same time.

That is my dog, Meg, under the table.  She likes hang out near me and it’s also cool on the tile floor.   While sitting in the ball, I do rotations from side to side and in circles.  Bouncing on it is also fun and works your legs/ core too.  At any time, you can roll back on it for a good inversion stretch and open chest/ heart center.  Thanks, Lisa for the suggestion!

Dinner was Spicy Asian cucumber, avocado, tomato, onion salad followed up by a simple pizza.  Pizza is made by using a wrap (I used an organic spelt one), toasting it a few minutes then topping with marinara sauce and toppings of choice (cheese, etc.) then putting back in toaster oven for a few more minutes.  Pull out, top with fresh chopped basil leaves and EAT!  (I went simple with just a sauce and fresh basil leaves).

 Scott’s side has goat cheese on it.  It was delicious and quick.  I prepared in toaster oven because I didn’t want to turn on the oven.  Pizza is thin and crispy.  It’s a hot one here today!

We’ve got some work scheduled tomorrow, so I made up several smoothies after dinner so that I wouldn’t have to do it in the morning.  *Time saving tip!  Prepare snacks, smoothies or meals the night before to save time the next morning if need be.  It makes a huge difference.  I’d rather get that little bit of extra sleep instead of getting up early prepping food.

 Day 16

Woke up early and it was a beautiful morning.  Went out to the garden for fresh swiss chard for juicing – they’re HUGE! I could cover parts of my body with it easily.  I had my lemon cayenne water followed by a hot cup of yerba mate tea while checking emails.

Afterwards, juiced 2 swiss chard leaves/beets/carrots/lemon – LOVE this combination!  Got the coolers packed with LOTS of water, smoothies, guacamole and jicama fries.  Out the door we went to work.  

Worked for 2.5 hours at customers house and got a serious sweat going on – more cleansing/detoxing this way.  Drank protein smoothie after and then lots of water.  Afterwards, we stopped off at the “blueberry man’s” house that I mentioned from the other day and talked with him about picking blueberries and he said “Help yourself,  hon”.   So, we did!
