Hey y’all! This post is going to be pretty short and sweet since its 10 pm, and I’m laying in bed writing this on my phone. Here’s a brief update:
1. Health is good. I’m just dealing with some peripheral neuropathy as a side effect of the chemo I was on for a year post-transplant. It’s supposed to go away, but I’ve been having a lot of weakness in my ankles and feet and very poor balance as well. The good news is I started physical therapy, so I get to see my future profession in action first hand!
2. I’ve been working back at Liven Up for the summer (which I LOVE)
And 3. I’ve also been taking summer classes.
So now to what I really want to talk about – I’m going to be starting the Standard Process 21 Day Purification Program tomorrow! Two other ladies I work with at Liven Up are also doing it as well.
I had wanted to do it for a long time, but last summer I wasn’t really able to especially with the supplements involved since I was still immunocompromised. Even now, I can only take a few of the supplements in the program as per the recommendation of my oncologist. There are some ingredients that, with my significant medical history and treatments, I should avoid in unknown quantities and with unknown impurities (since some supplements aren’t FDA regulates).
Anyhow, here’s what the program entails:
- No dairy
- No grains
- No added/refined sugars
- No nuts – only seeds
- No caffeine
- No alcohol
- No meat for the first 10 days
Now, I love my iced coffee and an ice cold cocktail at the end of the week, so this is definitely going to be rough. I’ll explain more about the cleanse and why I decided to do it in later posts. I have a nasty habit of getting very busy and then being too burnt out to blog at the end of the day, so at the very least, I’ll try to do a daily food photo blog.
If I don’t post on here, you can also keep up with me on Instagram! @run2yourownbeat
It’s off to dreamland for me now, for tomorrow, WE CLEANSE!
