HEALTHY LIVING: detox round 2

It has been almost exactly 6 months since the last time Kathi and I detoxed (check out our detox diary HERE), and in order kick-off the bikini season with a little help, we decided to go for round 2! Unfortunately, our schedules are so busy right now, that we were only able to squeeze in a 3-day juice cleanse, but I guess a 3-day cleanse is better than a no-day-cleanse, right? Since the last time around went fairly smooth for me (I didn’t get hungry at all during the 5 days and felt pretty good, even made it to the gym once), I decided to step it up a notch this time around and went for the Super Green Delight.

5 ways to a healthier lifestyle

Over the years, I feel like I have developed a fairly healthy lifestyle for myself, without obsessing over things too much. I enjoy the meals I eat, I have grown to love exercise and I am content with the way I look (most of the time). Personally, I am not a fan of certain diets, but instead prefer to make subtle long-term changes for the better. For me, radical changes are only short-term solutions, and in the end, I think it is more about being and living healthy. I do, however, think that a juice cleanse is an amazing thing. I did a 5-day cleanse back in December, and have noticed significant changes in my metabolism and well-being since then. To the point where I am actually already looking forward to the next cleanse in the Summer. But that’s off topic. Today, I want to share 5 ways to a healthier lifestyle, that will be easy to adapt and maintain over time.

HEALTHY LIVING: The Monday Ritual

Mondays aren’t always my favorite. It is hard to go back to emails and long to-do lists after all the weekend fun (I am sure most of you can relate). Lately, however, I’ve found a way to make Mondays pretty enjoyable. They are what I like to consider my “me days”. For a few weeks now, I’ve scheduled in my hot yoga class as an actual appointment in my calendar. It is at 5:30pm, which was usually almost impossible to make. There were other meetings or things that were prioritized, causing me to cancel on yoga and ending the day annoyed because I was skipping one of my favorite workouts – yet again. Now, however, that it is a fixed point in my agenda, it not hard at all. I treat it just like other appointments, with the same importance.

5 days of Detox Delight – a full review

After last night’s huge Christmas feast, I realized that I still owe you guys the second part of my 5-day Detox Delight review. Perfect timing, huh? For those just tuning in now, you can read about my motives to detox and the first 2 days HERE. For everyone else, let me sum it up in one short sentence: I’d do it again in a heart beat!
There has been a lot of controversy about “detoxing” and trust me, I’ve read articles both pro and con. I’ve done my research and decided for myself, that I personally wanted to try it and make up my own opinion. I am no scientist and by all means, I can not explain what exactly went on in my body during those 5 days. I do not know if toxins actually left my body, or if the liver and kidneys already do a good enough job. All I know is that I loved the results and felt amazing. Some people go on yoga retreats, others head to Las Vegas to wind down. Some like to treat themselves with a delicious burger or pizza, others detox. It is easy as that. Everyone gets to make their own decision on how they want to spend their time (or money) and treat their body. I decided to drink juices for 5 days together with my best friend, and guess what: I liked it.
