Isn’t life about the journey and changes? Well, it certainly is for this couple! We started this blog and Instagram as a way to focus on fitness and health, which is still a major part of our journey, but life is about so many side paths as well. Everyone seems to be pulled in so many directions these days!
For example we are definitely focused on our well-being and healthy food choices, but we are also focused on building a tiny home, renovating the home that we thought between the fire and smoke damage would just be sold ‘as is’ with the lot, but after closer evaluating we have decided to remodel it, converting our 4×4 big van into not a work vehicle for the hunter, but aslo a travel van for long weekend trips, I’m working fulltime as well as focusing on my freelance writing career, then throw in time with family and friends and anything else you can think of and we have quite a busy journey….BUT we are loving every minute of it!
So, with our life plates full, I finally made time to start my reboot as part of my well-being regimen – more details as posted in another article – Well-being: Mental and physical nourishment. Ask yourself ‘what are my health focused goals and what are my limits?‘ Suggestions:
- exercise, yoga
- nutritional supplements
- Healthy conscience eating
- Ensuring you drink enough water
- Get outside as often as you can
No matter what level you are at, movement and mental focus are important…there are some great online resources for various stages of exercise plans and the same for meditation and yoga. Personally, I’m still utilizing beginner videos and charts and find it very refreshing, renewing and nourishing. I linked a few above, but I’m happy to share more of my personal favs, if anyone is interested, just ask!
The reboot went great. I prepared by including lots of water as the website instructions suggests. I purchased several of the approved foods for the three day reboot (which IS NOT a cleanse, I went on with my normal life and did not have any issues). I purchased apples, kiwis, leafy greens, hummus, cucumbers, blueberries, mixed nuts, sugar free almond butter, and avocados. We even ate out on the second night and I had steamed veggies and a salad. The instructions suggest cutting out caffeine which I did for the most part, but I did enjoy my morning cup of coffee on the first two days.
On the fourth day, after all of the reboot capsules were taken I started the FundaMentals pack. I’ve been taking this group for about a week and I have much more energy and honestly juts an overall calmness. It’s nice, but not drastic and no jitters or anything at all. I take the powder in about a half of cup of coffee with some coconut cream. I don’t really care for the taste, but in the coffee it is almost undetected! So far I’m really liking the products and will incorporate the multivitamin once I make sure my stomach will handle these products OK, which so far they have!
I’ll keep you posted 🙂
