After spending the last few months eating pretty much whatever and not really being focused on exercise at all, I decided to do a 28 day cleanse that just happens to coincide with a 30 day Paleo challenge at my Crossfit gym. I really need a kick in the pants to get things back on track. The cleanse will basically consist of some supplements, 2 shakes a day, and a Paleo meal. No dairy, grains, alcohol, or caffeine. I will also aim to Crossfit at least 3x per week and do something on my own (swim/run) 2x per week. A coworker of mine signed up also, so we will be doing it together.
I am really going to take this one seriously for the next 28 days, starting this coming Thursday (June 2). At the gym, the challenge involves a point system (how well you stick with the program). The most points you get for the day is 4 points (+1 if you Crossfit, and + 1 if you sleep 8 hours). I am going to aim for no less than 3 points on any given day of the program. I see a few days coming up that may pose some challenges, but I am going to try to come up with a plan to handle that situation BEFORE it starts so I can stick with the cleanse. I am also going to blog as often as I can to hopefully get through some of the emotional tough stuff over the next 28 days.
Wish me luck! Here’s to a new and healthier me for this summer!
