New hcg journey

Here we go again, I’m deciding to start the hcg diet. I did it 3 years ago and was very successful in losing 40lbs in 40 days. I have 30lbs to lose in 2 months so I can fit into this bridesmaids dress. I have my products and I’m ready to start loading. This diet is VERY controversial, BUT very effective so I have nothing to lose at this time. Here we gooooo

DHerbs 20 day Full body cleanse

Hola! Bonjour! Hi 😀

Every time I say that I’m going to try my best to be more consistent with writing, the busier I get *Welp*. Anyhow I’m going to be starting this cleanse with my cousin and I really want to document the process. If you follow my ig you’ll see that I’ve been on this “get healthy tip” for a few months now. Initially it was just that my 30th birthday is coming up and I just wanted to be able to buy any dress I wanted to LOL. After a few weeks, it became more about getting healthy and fit. Getting my cholesterol down, not having diabetes or any disease that plagues society now.

Ok so back to the clease. About a month ago my cousin told me that some of her coworkers were all deciding to do a cleanse together and since I’m all about a good cleanse she asked me to do it with her. I will say this is a very expensive cleanse ($120) so when she sweetened the deal by buying it for me, I was more than willing to join lol (Thanks Nads) We’ve been researching it for about a month and I’ve been searching pinterest for all raw vegan type meals.

My package arrived on Wednesday and actually I started it today.

It is basically taking 30 pills total per day. Each pill is geared towards a different organ in the body. 5 pills are taken every 2-3 hours (Blood and Lymphatic, Cardiovascular, Liver, Gallbladder & Spleen, Lungs & Respiratory, Kidneys, Bladder & Adrenals and Colon & Digestive Tract) Along with this, at bedtime you drink 1/2 teaspoon of activated charcoal in a cup of water. The activated charcoal is used to “absorb digestive gas” and keeps certain substances from being absorbed in the body’s gastro-intestinal tract.

The gist of the cleanse it this:

For 20 days I won’t consume Meat, Dairy, Sugar, Anything cooked, anything processed, Alcohol, No prescriptions, No caffeine… I’ll be eating only RAW VEGAN meals. This shouldn’t be all that bad since I’ve been eating kind of like that anyhow.

Day 1, I prepared my pillbox

Breakfast was a blueberry, peach and mango smoothie

Lunch & Dinner: Salad made with tomatoes, strawberries and avocado

Snack: Almond

LOTS OF WATER! LOTS OF WATER

Now that day 1 is officially complete since I just drank the activated charcoal, I can say that I’m excited to see this through and don’t believe this should be all that hard.

Until tomorrow….toodles 🙂

Sidenote: this song popped in my head, had to add it LOL

New Habbits

Good morning loves,

Ok so to start off I’m feeling crappy and terrible. Reason for that is I didn’t go to the gym this morning 😦 It’s become such a part of my daily routine that it’s weird that I didn’t go this morning, weird, I know lol. I went out last night to celebrate my good friend’s birthday and got home so late that when my 4:45am alarm went off I didn’t hear a sound. Oh check us out

IMG_7697

This woman has been there with me through it all so I definitely had to celebrate with her. Anyhooooo. so I didn’t make it to the gym but I guess that’s ok. I can be allowed a rest morning :D. The good thing is that this is finally becoming a part of my routine, a habit even and I’m loving it. I saw this quote last night which made so much sense to me IMG_7576

It all made sense when I decided for shits & giggles to do a side by side of the Kardashian Kollection dress I wore to NYE dinner and when I wore it last night just to see if I can see any difference, As humans sometimes we can’t see the changes in ourselves. So here goes my side by side.

IMG_7683

This made me smile a little. It’s not a huge difference but it’s progress nonetheless and I hope the next time I wear this dress, I’ll seen an even bigger change. Until then I’ll keep with my workouts, eating as clean as possible & staying positive.

Thanks for reading, have a healthy day 🙂

Personal Training!!!

Omgggg so I decided to take the plunge and invest in my health. I’ll be 30 in October and decided that I need to take care of myself more, get healthy and lose weight. So I met with him, paid him 2 weeks in advance just so I would be accountable. I woke up, got ready and was determined to be great

This is the end of the first week & this is the best thing I could’ve ever done. My endurance is getting up to a good level so is my strength. I can’t wait to see my results in 4 months

Day 3- Green Smoothie Cleanse

Hey luvs!

I was rushing this morning so I wasn’t able to take a picture of my day 3 smoothie. This is getting easier though and I’m not tempted to cheat at all. I do believe though that the water has been my savior though because I get full after I drink it.  I jumped on the scale this morning and was down another 3.1 pounds which makes it 5.2 pounds lost  since Monday 😀 images1

PS: I couldn’t find a black girl on a scale LOL. Anyhow, let me get back this water & grapes.

Until tomorrow…..

10 Day Green Smoothie Cleanse

Sooooo hey y’all!!!! It’s been forever since I’ve had time to write anything but I’ve been super busy. Since I have a break from school until January 12 I have some free time to relax and write and share. I just decided to do another round of this smoothie cleanse by JJ Smith. I came across it on FB months ago and decided to give it a try. The first round I lost 13 pounds.

This was my results after the first round. Hope to have even better results this round.IMG_4532

This is my day 2 smoothie Apple Strawberry (spring mix, water, banana, apples and strawberries).

Will update tomorrow

Letting your guard down

Read this today and thought it was so true.

“Letting your guard down”

It’s when you take the risk to open your heart to someone. You finally commit your all and let them see how much you like/love them. Usually, people will keep themselves hidden behind walls. Letting those walls down, it just shows how much you feel for them. It’s hard though. You’re afraid to get hurt, not sure if they’re worth it. But, you can never really let your guard down. If you think that person is really worth giving your all, then you can give them your whole heart. If you let your guard down and realize that person wasn’t worth it all, you’ll be in a world of momentary hurt. It’ll take time to get through the pain and reach the normalcy without that person. Because sometimes it’s just the moment of infatuation that makes it seem like they’re your everything

“At some point in time you have to tear down your wall, open your heart, and allow yourself to love and to be loved.”
