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.

When you’re so hungry you could eat a horse……

And chase its rider

When you're so hungry you could eat a horse

This Pasta Measure would make a good gift, as how often do we have guests and serve spaghetti only to find we have not cooked enough or we cooked way way too much.
You can get this measure on Amazon – Pasta Measure

Survive A Crisis – No 2

You Meet A Large Animal Who Is Not looking very Friendly.

(In this case I think I would prefer to be in a sinking car)

 

Escape-a-Bear-600x337

a. “Do not run” This is advice from Tony Nester the director of the Ancient Pathways survival school in Flagstaff, Arizona. What happens is if you run you most likely cause a chase response in an animal that had no plans to attack. Even if it is eyeballing you as a potential meal it prefers prey that is not going to put up a fight.
Spread your arms, shout, and make yourself look large (not to hard for me but I am sure I would be sweating big time) and threatening.
Slowly retreat and do not turn your back on the animal. If you are with a child he or she may look more appetizing so keep between the child and the bear.

b. If all else failsThe animal you are facing may be guarding its territory and not hungry. The plan is the same but be assured the animal will be more aggressive.
If this is not affective and it begins to attack use whatever you can such as a stick, fists, fight back and aim for the snout before he rips your arm off.

Stand Up For Your Rights Or Give Them Away!

In Australia at the moment, especially Queensland there is a vindictive ‘Legal’?? assault against any biker who wears colors or has any association with any club members. These laws are being inforced by the state Governments and Police.
They are not allowed to ride together as a group. The bikers can only ride in groups of three. They are not allowed to congregate in a larger group than 3. There are many other stupid and ridiculous new laws.
Australians should start worrying about what these so called power hungry employees of the Government are going to do with the average ‘Joe Blows’ rights in the future.
We all know that some bikers are not squeaky clean and if a crime is committed then the punishment should be fit the crime. Not make up a whole lot of new laws so it makes the police job so easy that they can arrest these people for just being who they are. A citizen of this country.
In the weekend a group of bikers met in a coastal town. They all arrived in separate flights, no bikes, stayed in separate accommodation, wearing shorts t/shirts and thongs. All mates. They were arrested and jailed for being known associates of a club and congregating. Come on, that is not right.
A father and son drinking at a local pub and another biker arrested and jailed over Xmas. I know of the pub and those guys have been drinking there for years.
A young man was fined in the weekend. While riding his motor bike on the highway he stretch out his leg as he had been riding a while. He was pulled over and fined $146. The reason was he did not have both feet on the foot peg. Don’t believe me? Read this.
They are looking at closing any Tattoo parlors that may have any association with Motor cycle clubs.

Now you maybe able to see where this video is going. People are getting fed up with this tyranny and so they should in my opinion.
