6. Whole Living Action Plan

I am a huge fan of Whole Living magazine. They always have great tips for living a healthy life and since I'm completely clueless when it comes to health in general, I could use all the extra advice. In their January issue, they featured a 28 Day Whole Living Challenge. It starts with a detox in hopes of helping you create healthy habits (and recover from all the holiday junk food). I want to state that I am not in any way, shape, or form trying to lose weight. (I'm trying to gain weight, actually). I'm just tired of feeling guilty for my unhealthy habits. So, tomorrow I begin the challenge (I'm a little late as you can see, but better late than never!)

If you want to join with me, go here.

Tomorrow starts with a 2-day preparation for my detox. Whole Living suggests the following:
-Start the morning with hot water and fresh lemon juice
-Try to drink 8 glasses of water each day
-Toss unhealthy foods (a.k.a anything processed)
(I'm NOT excited about this one, but it needs to be done. Sigh...)

This plan is going to be especially hard for me because I am the pickiest person that has ever lived...not kidding. If anyone has tips for picky eaters I'm all ears. My goal after these 28 days is to reduce my stress level (which feels super high), cut out caffeine, increase my knowledge on a healthy lifestyle, and create healthy eating habits. It's going to be hard, man. I like sugar...

I'm off to drink some water,

hehe....i literally laughed out loud when i scrolled down and saw this picture of you. o, i love you-you are too cute. :) (i must say though, i would feel sad too if i had to throw out harvest cheddar sun chips)
i would love to join you! my body could use some major detox! does it take of lot of preparation to do each day?
i just thought of a tip! i am now addicted to water due to:
1. i have a cute, sturdy, ecofriendly water bottle i carry with me wherever i go... &
2. sometimes i put fresh lemon slices or cucumber slices in my water-it cheers it up, and gives it such a fresh/clean taste.

Notes From A Ragamuffin said...

It doesn't take much preparation besides the two days prior. Each day it's just something different. yes! I have a pretty nifty water bottle I got a while ago from Scheels and I take it to work with me. I'm getting better about drinking water, it's just the food part that will take a while...

I'm in on the water idea. [And Sharon..I love water with cucumbers:) ] I'm probably too picky as well to do the food part of it though, ooops. haha.

It's kinda funny that you're starting this out in Feb. because I woke up this morning and made a checklist for each day of February! January was pretty good for me, but February WILL be better :)
Good luck, my dear!
Oh and Milanos and Sun Chips totally remind me of living in the dorms and the 'burg! :)
