Keto so far…

Keto so far…

The past two weeks have been pretty interesting.  Getting the body to switch fuel can be a bit challenging on the energy front.  The body goes thru a lot of changes being deprived of carbs. We are loving the food and the recipes are fantastic. 

We’re into Keto!  Weekend Review.

We’re into Keto! Weekend Review.

It’s been a great weekend!  We ended the juice cleanse and did a 30-mile bike ride on Friday!  My first of the year and I haven’t been able to do much riding.  The juice cleanse did wonders for my body.  I would not have been

I love juicing and doing a juice cleanse.  Juicing heals my body, resets my taste buds to crave healthy food, clears my brain and I feel renewed.  Cleansing of any sort cleanses not only the body but also the whole body, emotions, mental and spiritual.  It’s uncomfortable.  It’s a new start.  It’s worth everything!  We are blessed to be living close to Ashland, OR, and have a local raw food restaurant.   I buy ours from NW Raw so I can concentrate on the healing process.  Buying the juices ensures I’ll be successful, instead of having to depend on my energy to make the juice.

When we do a juice cleanse we drink our coffee, but this time I’ve changed it to Pure Joy Planet’s Superwoman Coffee.  It is soooo good!  I’m a big one for 1/2 and 1/2 in my coffee and lots of it. I was afraid that I wouldn’t be able to give up dairy in my coffee.  We go thru a lot of it in a week!  It’s important to have the Ashwagandha drops and Medicinal Mushroom powders.  The nutrition from the superfood rides in on the caffeine train! Whooop Whooop!  I don’t miss cream at all and feel more satisfied after.

We include a salad for lunch instead of just juicing.  At our age, it’s good to have the roughage to keep things moving and for us, helps the cleansing process.  It’s easier for me to stay on a program to be flexible, discover what works instead of following a rigid program that inhibits my progress.

Day 2 of our cleanse I had a big migraine for 1/2 the day, although we were getting a weather change so I’m not sure if this was detoxing, the weather, or possibly a combination of both. Day 3 and 4 I was feeling nauseous for part of the day, the ginger in the juices helped and so did chamomile tea.  Day 5…what what day is this…lol! Yup, that is today and I was feeling really spacey and tired.

With all that going on, I have way less pain in my body.  I haven’t been taking Advil at night and I’m not waking up in pain, YAY!  This is a great start before we begin the Keto program! ❤️
