The Next FOUR Days look like this….

I’m on Day 17 of the 28 Days to Health Cleanse and guess what the next FOUR days look like…

Shakes 3 times a day…and yes that is one of those venti size plastic Starbucks cups.   If I can’t drink Starbucks, I might as well think I’m enjoying a Frappuccino – don’t you think? 🙂 
(I put a lot of ice in my shakes so I have extra left over…makes the meal last longer.)
So far ~ I’m recommending this…

The Adventures with KALE!

So I tried it…very easy to make.  To my surprise…they were really good.  I couldn’t get my little man to try it – gotta work on him.  But the big man tried it.  I think I put a…

Over the first hurdle…

So I survived Day 1, 2 and 3.  They say that the first 3 days are the hardest so I’m doing the happy dance now.  I would say Day 1 was brutal.  But I think that is the case with anything when you change your eating habits on Day 1 – wouldn’t you agree.

I survived…Day 1

So I successfully completed DAY 1.  They say that the first 3 days are the hardest…so I’m a 1/3 of the way there.

I walked in to the information…
