So yesterday my husband calls me on the way home from his hot yoga class.  He says he feels he has reached a plateau.  He talked to his yoga instructor and they suggested a detox/cleanse.
"So let's do that, okay?"
Sometimes his simplicity is humorous.  When asked if he questioned his yoga instruction on advice for this, she told him a 5 day herbal drink detox was horrible but worked.  Great, I'll just Google 5 day horrible detox that works.
When I did Google 5 day detoxes almost all of them referred to a specific name brand detox system that was $95 - for the drink alone.  Then $39 for the bubble therapy drink and $34 for the probiotic supplements.  Yeah....we're not doing that.  So some more research on detox and cleansing brought me to a few other much cheaper program but they also got negative reviews of simply - not working,  "didn't do a thing"  I can't be wasting money for no results.
Finally I found good old Dr Oz and his 3 day Detox Cleanse.   I decided this sounds good, seems almost all natural and I was pleasantly surprised that I had some of the ingredients on hand.  Yeay me!!!!  I had to go to two stores for the other items, but the total cost was approximately $123 including the 2 to go tumblers my husband will need to take his breakfast and lunch drink to work - but remember that is for 2 of us.  This is  considerably less than the $328 it would have cost for both of us to do the all in one boxed up kit of drugs and chemicals.

Here are the links if you're interested, I'll try to post daily to let you know how we're doing. 

Basic plan and shopping list -

I recommend watching these 4-5 minute video clips about the cleanse.  They make some good points.

Day 8 Strawberry Spinach Salad

This is my newest obsession!  And let me just say, if ONE PERSON says Oh you know (___) is high in (___)" or anything, I'll pound them!!!  I LOVE THIS SALAD!
I bought a big contained of organic spinach, a small container of crumbled feta cheese, 3 containers of juicy red explode in your mouth strawberries, some green onions, chopped walnuts, and raspberry red wine vinegarette dressing.  This salad is to die for!!!!!!  And wanna know how many calories??? 316 calories.  The majority of the calories were the walnuts (HEALTHY) and then 90 for the dressing and 90 for the feta.  But I love it!

I did Just Dance 4 yesterday and burned 513 calories in 35 minutes!!! And I so enjoy doing that!  I never get to go dancing and I certainly never get to do a dance routine!  I crank that volume.
Wanna know my Songs list?
Call Me Baby, Mr Saxaphone, You Don't You're Beautiful (twice, cuz I love it), Living La Vida Loca, Hot For Me and then Umbrella. 
And I am literally dripping with sweat when I'm done!  So if you wanna give it a try, there you go!

The scale moved today 1.4 pounds, but I'll be honest, it's just the same 2 pounds that keep coming and going.  I won't be excited for about 3 more pounds!!!!!

Thnx for checking on me!
Feel free to leave words of encouragement - just don't knock on my salad!!!!!  ;)
