Ultimate Reset – Final Day

Today is the final day. Lunch with seaweed was almost unbearable, but I ate it no matter what. I was starving. Cucumber-avocado soup in dinner, compensated for the fishy smell of the seaweed. Then we were done. 21-days of cleanse. I am glad I've done this with my mom and my husband. It really helped to stick with it, not cheat and go through. I … [Read more...]

Almost half-way. This is Day 10. Yaaay! 11 Days to go. I had to attend an alumni breakfast meeting this morning. I got my supplements and left home with my fruits in a container.

Just when I get down to the … [Read more...]
