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.

A Giggle To Start Your Monday Morning

The Marriage of an 80-year-old man and a 20-year-old woman was the talk of the town.
After being married a year the couple went to the hospital for the birth of their first child.
The attending nurse came out of the delivery room to congratulate the old gentleman and said “This is amazing. How you do it at your age?
The old man grinned and said “You got to keep the old motor running.”

The following year the couple returned to the hospital for the birth of their second child. The same nurse was attending the delivery and again congratulated the old gentleman.
“Sir you are something. How do you manage it?”

Same answer with a grin “You got to keep the old motor running”

Another year later the couple returned to the hospital for the birth of the third child.
Once again the same nurse was attending. After the delivery she approached the gentleman and smiled “Well you sure are something.

“Well like I said before you got to keep the old motor running.

The nurse patted him on the back and said “Well I guess its time to change the oil as this one is black”

Hydration During Pregnancy

This is a must read. I for one did not suffer from morning sickness but I also used to drink lots of water in those days.  I also was not aware that dehydration is quite detrimental to the cells of the developing fetus. It is worth reading the article by “WellBeing” as it is very informative. The URL is included below.

Early pregnancy morning sickness is a signal of dehydration of the mother and fetus. It is caused by the water regulatory action of histamine, explains Dr. F. Batmanghelidj. Pregnancy creates a very high demand for water. As the fetus grows into a full term baby, over 1 trillion cell divisions take place. Each new cell must be filled with water. Pregnant women should drink water and eliminate all sources of dehydration, especially the consumption of caffeine and alcohol.

Kangen Water® through the ionization process creates micro-clustering that is able to change the size of the water molecules to smaller groupings of 4-5. Other waters have water molecule groupings of 15-20 that are not able to penetrate the cell, therefore only providing 15% hydration.
