That is not me. I wouldn't mind if it were but I am a little softer around the edges, which is a-okay with me.
This my fair readers, and Green Smoothie drinkers is my momma. My 57 1/2 year-old momma. This is one example of what health and happiness look like. Now, I know that I talk about my mom a lot, and for good reason. She is seriously the best PR person anyone can ask for. Not only does she sing my praises where ever she goes, but she is the walking example of the benefits of a healthy diet, regular moderate exercise, and a zero tolerance policy for whining, guilt-tripping, obligatory obligations and lame excuses. She lives her life, just as she wishes and she is 57 1/2 with unreal arms!
In the past, with the 3 Day Green Smoothie Cleanse, I have gone through the cleanse days offering info and advice for getting yourself through this challenge. This time, my goal is to offer inspiration. Now, I am not showing you this awesome photo of my mom who happens to be wearing a Super Green Clean tank (taken last week while she and my dad were cycling in Banff, Alberta) because this is what we should strive for. No. I am showing you just one vision of health.
We all have our own. I know what mine looks like and you have to determine and embrace what yours looks like. That is all the inspiration I am offering today. I ask that you take a moment and think about what health means to you. What it is worth to you. Where you are in terms of your health goals? What do you believe must happen in order for you to achieve them? And how are you going to do that?
Now write them down as a list. Maybe it is five things, maybe it is ten things- a list of things that you can do everyday that will change the way you feel. For example, a list could be as follows:
1. Drink one full glass of water with lemon right when I wake up.
2. Walk 20 minutes everyday, not because I need to get somewhere, just to walk
3. Take five deep, down to the bottom of the lung breaths at least once a day.
4. Decide what time I am going to bed and stick to that time no matter what.
See- simple things. Come up with your own list and I encourage you to post some of your resolutions on this page.
Now for those of you doing this Green Smoothie Cleanse for the first time, I won't leave you info free. Each day of this cleanse, I will post a couple links to past Green Smoothie Cleanse posts. Happy blending!
