My Isagenix Experience and Cleanse Day

 

I started my Isagenix program on Friday a week ago. I have to say the first few days took a bit of mind control. It was not that I was hungry, it was that I love my food, and am a nibbler so the two shakes for two meals was a bit of a mental struggle for me. Determined, I persevered and looked forward to my meal in the evening with a glass of wine of course. Protein and a plate full, and I mean a plate full of delicious salad, which included everything but the kitchen sink. Avocado, carrots, onions, spinach, lettuce, mung beans, beetroot, fresh broccoli, feta cheese, coriander, basil, parsley, chilies, covered with balsamic, and Lesley’s secret dressing which I will give to you at the end of this story. After an hour I would have a piece of fruit which last week was lychees. I ate around 6:30 PM so it would be at least 16 hours before I would start again. I guess you could say I am incorporating intermittent fasting with it if you count the hours between evening an morning meals.

Yesterday I did my cleanse day which involves drinking this concoction from Isagenix called “cleanse for life” every four hours with heaps of filtered water. I was drinking Kangen water of course.  It is not a laxative which entails purging  it is a cellular nourishing and detoxifying  powder which you drink with filtered water so you are not purging  you are actually supplying your cells with antioxidants and fabulous plant botanicals

Well, that was interesting because I mentally was not looking forward to it but once again determined to do it properly. I was surprised that although I struggled mentally for the first few hours I found I did not get hungry and as the day went on I really found myself not missing the food. The hardest bit was not having my evening meal but got through that with watching a J Lo movie and an Aussie movie then it was time for bed.

Now to my surprise I actually had a great nights sleep which I have not done in months and I feel energized and clear-headed which also was interesting as I thought I would have felt a little sluggish this morning but no, I feel fantastic.

Have I lost weight? I think so, I don’t have scales and have not stood on scales in years so I cannot prove it.  Body wise I do feel lighter if that is any indication and I do believe my clinging dress is not so clingy.

So on to the next week a few more distractions next week so will power required.

Oh, my secret recipe for my dressing well I think I will keep it a secret a little while longer.

The Forbidden History Of Terrible Taxes

I know I go off on a lot of different tangents, mostly on about the things I am passionate about. Food, being healthy, being rich and independent and having fun and riding motorbikes of course. When I heard this video, I had that need to share as I do. 

This 13 min video is certainly worth the watch. I for one hate the Tax system. I personally believe it is hard-earned money stolen by a group of people who have never done an honest days work in their life. We complain but do nothing I know, but I think the day will come when we will rebel against the amount of tax we pay and how it is wasted.

Where does our tax go and how much do we really pay is all explained in this video.  Topher’s explanation is in-depth and very informative.

Topher is talking about the Australian tax system but it is  the same for many welfare countries and is a direction that America is heading. Look out America like the Aussies you will be taxed out of existence and under the control of a non productive Government because you will get used to Government hand outs and wont know how to live any other way.

Futuristic Faucets

Here are taps of the future. They all, are futurist looking and have a practical purpose. I am not sure if I would have them if I was building a new house  I think some of them would be worth looking at.

The “Flow” by Nadeem Haidary is a faucet concept that encourages an exceptional interaction on part of the user. Developed for an Asian restaurant, the new faucet drawing inspiration from the control of energy in Zen gardens places a stone on a section of fabric that triggers a switch to activate the flow of water like a natural spring.

Hailed as “+Shifter,” the new faucet by designer Shen Di is an innovative bathroom accessory that allows the users to control the flow of water by shifting the lever of its gearbox design. The distinctive faucet is not just glossy and minimal in design but it also helps in conserving energy.

Inspired by the beauty of ripples created in still waters, the Ripple Faucet created by Smith Newnam and Touch 360 Studio makes your daily interaction with water fun by establishing a visual relationship between the two.

Get the glamor to your kitchen with this Kohler Karbon Articulating Kitchen Faucet. Swap your lacklustered and outdated faucet with this artistic one and swing back to work in style. Giving you ultimate power to direct it wherever you want literally, the faucet is designed to hold any pose for you.

From Jordan Tomnuk comes a really cool fluid faucet series that includes bathroom/kitchen fixtures and shower heads for modern homes

Combining sophisticated design with high-end technology, the SmartFaucet by iHouse brings the utmost convenience. Using a facial screening application, the iHouse Smart Faucet recognizes the user and automatically turns on the water to the preferred temperature and flow. The touchscreen on the top of the faucet can be used to access email, check your calendar, check the outside temperature, among other things.

Coming from the house of Köhler Design (a German group of designers), Fluid is a flexible faucet that doubles as a drinking fountain and lets you drink water without the need of wetting your hands with a simple flip. The Fluid not just boasts a sleek design, but the faucet brags highly functional usage as well

The Twist Faucet makes you work for your water by cranking the knob in and out; reminding you that water is a precious resource. It also has a digital readout that shows your consumption, along with the water temperature.
