It’s been a week since I started the Fast Track Detox and I am feeling FABULOUS. I’m not certain I’ll be able to say the same thing tomorrow because it is my fast day. All I know is for the past 7 days, I have felt fantastic. It’s a real shock to me because I expected to feel both hungry and drained. I was hungry the first few days but it passed.

This program is NOT A DIET. A diet is a long term course of action …this is just 11 days. The program is a rejuvenation.

The pain that I had in my neck for the past 6 months is gone. The varicose vein I had in the back of my calf has vanished. Honestly…I am amazed. My skin is clear and my eyes are bright. I can’t remember the last time I felt this good.

Now…for the all important questions I ask the foodie in me:

Am I going to quit eating bread – that is a definite NO.

Am I going to quit drinking wine – not on the weekend.

Am I going to eat sweets – maybe once a week instead of two or three times.

I recently worked with a life coach who reminded me of the value of self-love. I had forgotten how good it feels to do something nice for yourself.

7 Down and 4 to go...

Bon Appetit …and be good to yourself today! You deserve it!
