The 3 Month Health & Wellness Plan: Day #18
It's been a week since I've written a recent post about what's been going on with my body. Well all I can say is that it's been quite the challenge and quite the worry. When Chris Stephenson (Akaline Guru) and I called me this week, I was partially worried that I wasn't sticking to the plan nicely. We had the phone conversation and it turns out I'm on the right track.
I first brought to his attention that I've experienced two body crashes throughout the past few days. My body has never been used to so much healthy balance, it made the decision to reject the food completely. But sadly, it can't reject it completely. After all, I'm the one that's putting the food in my mouth.
Chris told me that what I'm going through is a normal state. My body is currently going through the process of ridding itself of all that junk, and accepting the fact that I'm trying to balance it. I took a deep breath as a sign of relief, for I thought I was doing the wrong thing. I just partially wish it didn't have to be painful. I think I'm partially experiencing Chris's detoxing experience.
The one thing Chris constantly tells me is that I can eat in moderation, but have to keep it balanced. If I don't, I'll pass out in my office again. That's what I'm working on right now. I stopped drinking a lot of juices and sodas, and been sticking to Fiji water. I'm eating more carbs like Mac and Cheese for example. I'm going back in the gym in order to balance the carbs. The list goes on and on, but this is just a few.
Before the end of our conversation, I did bring to Chris's attention that I've been losing memory lately. Every time someone tells me something, I would forget it in five seconds. People would always have to repeat what they've told me for the second time in order to let that stay in my head. So I asked him what's good food for memory.
1. Continue drinking water.
2. Oregano. Sprinkle it on top of pasta, my favorite food in the world.
That's exactly what I did. Knowing I was eating lasagna that very night, I put Oregano on top of it.
Once again, I completed another chapter down my road to health & wellness. I can't wait to see what's next. I can't wait to try out these new recipes Chris is going to send to me soon. All I know is this plan is really doing my body well.
Until next time everyone!
