Writing about me today! As president of a small company I wear a TON of hats. Yesterday, Monday of course, was a terrible, no good, very bad day and it had nothing to do with my business. I woke up tired and foggy, maybe partially because of my Easter celebrating i.e. both key lime & banana cream pie for dessert! Whatever the reason, my energy level continued to sink even after my nap at 2pm. So I got myself motivated enough to go to the market and pick up my ‘cleanse’ ingredients. I have cleansed 4 times since my darling friend Beth, writer of Haute & Healthy blog, told me about it a year ago. The first time I ‘cleansed’ I had a headache for 2 days but since then I LOVE IT! I started DAY 1 today and feel so much better already. More energy and much less foggy. I do believe diet is everything and if any of you ever feel like I did I suggest you try a ‘cleanse’. It’s an inspiring kick start to cleaner eating. If you need any help let me know – I’m not an expert but I know what works for me!
