Fruit Infused Water

WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU LISTENED TO YOUR BODY?  Of course, you will not hear your body say, “Hey you, are you listening to me?” I mean, if your body actually does say that then forget the water detox and go straight to the doctor, lol.

Our bodies speak to us through different ways, maybe through dry skin, or an abdominal discomfort, or perhaps feeling tired. I am by no means a doctor so if you are feeling constant discomfort then you need to see a physician.

Lately, my body has been speaking to me through the feelings of sluggishness and lack of energy.  Today I listened to  I am doing a fruit infused water detox with the following:

  • Cucumbers
  • Limes
  • Lemons
  • Oranges
  • Peppermint Tea Bag (I like the taste of mint and I do not have any fresh mint)

This is a great way to just flush your body and rid it of some toxins. Here are just a few of the ways consistent fruit infused water detoxes can benefit your body

  • Better digestion
  • Skin rejuvenation
  • Boosting your metabolism and energy

I urge you to listen to your body and try a water detox. Research the benefits of various fruits and try one.  There are many websites out there that have great recipes. Enjoy!

Thinking Like a Size 8

My new thought process is to think like a size 8. I am currently about a 12 and my goal is a comfortable size 8.  I have been every thing from a 0 – 14 over the past 20 years. That sounds crazy right? It felt crazy to just write it down. Out of all the sizes I think 8 is were I would like to be right now. My body has change and weight has shifted to different places. I feel as though an 8 would look perfect on me.  In pounds that may be about 25 pounds away.

So I am thinking like a size 8. I have already been going through my closest to pack away many of my larger clothes. Why? Because I am a size 8, I don’t need those. I have also been going through the smaller clothes I have packed away so I can start wearing them. I am not delusional I know that I can not wear them yet….YET. However, I will soon. I know that. I am confident of that. I am excited.

A couple things that I have started recently are wearing ankle weights during the day and drinking water.  Those are obvious things to most but obviously I have not been doing them. I found this great 64 oz chugger at 5 below and I love it. That is also where I got the ankle weights.  SAMSUNG

I fill my chugger with water and add sliced cucumber, lemon, lime and orange.  I also add a peppermint tea bag for a few minutes to add a taste of mint.

Also when it comes to my food intake I am again thinking like a size 8. Once I become satisfied eating I simply stop. While we are eating why do we eat past the point of satisfaction. Just save some for the next meal.

What size are you thinking like?
