Isagenix and me

I know I talked about this before as part of my annual plan, but it’s happening. I can’t find anything wrong with the product of the business structure so I signed up and I grabbed my good friend Kim along for the ride. I tried to drag more into the cleansing muck, but they found different avenues to pressure their goals.

I decided to kick things off with a 30 day cleanse in March. 30 days to get it together and shed the bloat, all in time for my month-long birthday celebrations.

I was so in the thick of my life that I didn’t have time to open the heavy box on my doorstep this Friday, basically my entire diet for 30 days in a relatively small box. What it lacked in size it made up for in weight. I need to bulk up just to carry around my product. 

Yesterday filled with trepidation I cracked open the box to explore the treasures within. It was a quick education on everything as Zachary piped up from his nap earlier than I anticipated. It is a thorough system with lots to offer. I have Chocolate shakes and Vanilla shakes for 2 meals a day, a handful of supplements to support my bodies transition from gross to glossy – (the cleanse has drained my creativity from my body).

I had a full blown panic attack prepping for my start date; dizzy and spins, nausea and a headache. I had myself worked up over the results. I had myself wound up about moving forward and actually being accountable for the $350 price tag. That’s money away from my boys because Mummy likes to eat. Argh. 

I finally went to sleep and hoped for a restful night, but sweet Zachary had other plans with a midnight explosion. I skipped my very first workout, which is typically my favourite part of a new routine, but I was up at 1:30, 3 and 4:30 with Zac… I couldn’t imagine a 5am wake-up call for the day. So, I snoozed and felt ready at 6am to start testing the product.

On top of everything else, Mother Nature was like, ‘Hey, I wanna come play too!’ being a girl is the best.

This morning I did it, I took a shot of green goo, popped a pill and drank the chocolate sludge – I was way more into this, this morning at the moment I am at a 3pm lull feeling drained, dizzy and foggy. I would normally have a tea around this point. I would normally have a snack, but today it’s just water. Sorry there was a lunch in there… lots of greens; avocado, spinach and cucumber salad with apple and chicken.

I want to curl up and sleep for 100 years. 

I do remember this from my last cleanse, the headache should kick in soon and it will be an early night for me. I just keep telling myself, it will all be worth it. It will all be amazing in the summer around the pool, the late spring in shorts, feeling good in my skin again. It will all be worth it. 

I am grateful that I didn’t workout this morning, I would be asleep at my desk.

Stay tuned for day two when things get bitchy.
