It’s Monday and that means it’s time for a bootcamp update. If you remember my bootcamp post from last week, you know that the last 10-ish days have been trying for me. I had been dealing with some serious digestive issues, which in turn caused my numbers to stop moving, which in turn was making me feel gross and frustrated. Never a fun emotion to have to navigate, especially when trying to lose weight. But, as I said last week, hurdles such as this are inevitable with any lifestyle change. One must simply keep going.
Today I’m happy to be coming at you on a much lighter and more hopeful note. As you can see from my weigh-in numbers at the top, I am once again on the way down. After weeks of distress I finally went in for a colonic on Thursday. I have done these many times before and highly recommend them to all, but this one in particular was a revelation. Angels sang, clouds parted, spirits soared… it was just what I needed. By Friday afternoon I felt completely light and empty for the first time in weeks. Since then I have begun a 14-day herbal cleanse and will be going in for 5 more treatments. All of this will not only get me squeaky clean, but will (hopefully) reset the workings of my apparently polluted colon. Fingers crossed. In the meantime, I am once again excited and filled with optimism. My body is getting noticeably smaller – I have gotten so many looks and compliments. It shouldn’t be long before we see those numbers catch up. Eee!
This week at bootcamp is what they call “Skinny Week” where they narrow down our diet even further to promote an exceptional period of results. With only two weeks left on this first 5-week stint, I’m hoping that this will allow me to catch up some time I lost while battling with my gut. Wish me luck!
In honor of skinny week, stay tuned for inspired recipes and healthy Los Angeles eats!
