I hope you all did more than survive the holidays! I hope that you had so much down time and peace and tranquility not only with yourselves but with family and friends, and that your'e ready to take 2018 by the gonads and make it great!
So here we are now at the New Year and making all of our resolutions, especially as it concerns our diet. It's back to the grind after eating anything and everything. Time to refocus and make conscious decisions of what we're going to partake of (so to speak).
I admit it, I did have moments where I came off of my clean eating regimen and ate sugar, meats and processed foods but I did try to limit them and when eating them tried to eat as clean as possible. I didn't want to have to start over from last year (if you know what I mean). But if you went all out, no worries. Back on track!
So, where to begin? First of all try not to feel overwhelmed. Nothing happens overnight. Making small changes amount to big ones. But here are a few ways you can slowly ease in:
Another great thing would be to keep a food journal during this time. Write down what you are eating when, and how it made you feel. Then, you can go back over the journal to track your progress and see where you are or where you need to improve. Most importantly, you can pat yourself on the back for a job well done!
All of these things will help you to start to detox and you'll begin to notice you just may lose a few pounds, be sleeping better at night, and perhaps having no more digestive issues. And hey, who knows? You just may want to continue this journey of eating clean.
