Day seven of my detox ended at about 2 p.m. for me. I was extremely pleased at my results and everything that I had accomplished during the process. Although I experienced some challenges, I was able to obtain encouragement from others as well as, muster up enough to encourage myself.
When I made the decision to go on a raw food detox, it was because I recognized that in the past three years, I was unable to discipline myself to do just about anything. You can say that I was pretty much in a rut. I had little will power and often used my situations as a crutch to not do better and be better. This year, something in me just did not resonate with settling in my then condition. I was unhealthy, unhappy, and very much so dependent on the opinion of others. At some point recently, I arrived at my "enough is enough" place.
At the completion of the detox I noticed that my energy levels were much better and so was my goal planning. I got the clarity that I'd been seeking. There were so many outstanding questions that had not been answered that I gained perspective on. Some relationships ended while others began. I found myself releasing some people within my life that took years to let go of due to past hurts and trauma. I can honestly say that I feel more lighter and freer than I have in a while.
Beside the emotional and spiritual benefits that accompanied the detox, there were also physical ones, of course. I had a weight loss of 9 pounds! Yes, 9 pounds! During the week, I had enough energy to keep up with my workouts, they actually increased.
All in all, I'm very happy with my detox results on all levels. They exceeded my expectations. In the future, I plain to make regular detox apart of my everyday lifestyle. I hope that you will as well. Abundant blessings.
