In October, I completed the Beautiful Body Cleanse. It’s a 30 day cleanse facilitated by a Leanne Jacobs, who is also the founder of the program.
The timing of when this program couldn’t have been more perfect. In June of this year, I embarked on my Konmari journey - decluttering my life completely and only keeping the things that spark joy. This consumed most of my summer and I am still working away at the final category: sentimental items.
In September, I began a 30 Day Yoga Camp online with Yoga with Adrienne. I’ve done yoga before, but never 30 days in a row. As a mom of 3 little ones, finding the time to do yoga every day was quite challenging but so worthwhile! I felt stronger, centered and more focused than I have in years.
When I came across the Beautiful Body Cleanse towards the end of September, it was so clearly the next step on my journey. I was so excited!
What drew me to this program initially was that it doesn’t focus on losing weight, counting calories, or consuming some magical substance that will cause to to lose weight, eat what you want, fart rainbows and ride unicorns (hah!). It’s about nourishing yourself on every level - your body, your mind and your spirit. It focuses on the WHOLE you, not the number on the scale.
I consider myself a fairly healthy person normally but this program really brought my idea of ‘health’ to a new level. It wasn’t always easy - I had some deeply ingrained habits to break and new ones to create. It took commitment, focus and determination.
But it was SO worth it.
I can’t begin to tell you how grateful I am that I did it.
Over the next few blog posts, I’m going to share the most life-changing aspects of this cleanse with you. I hope that it will inspire you to make changes or perhaps provide you with strategies for moving towards a healthier you, whatever that may mean in your life.
2016 has been a year of change for me. I feel stronger and healthier than I have in a long time. I’m so excited to share this journey with you.
