Getting Healthier This Year


My hubby and I are not exactly spring chickens anymore. Which of course means we should be taking better care of ourselves than we actually do. Procrastination has become our buddy, hehe, as we plan to walk "tomorrow morning" and start eating more fruits and veggies "tomorrow" as well. But since we are still in the first month of a new year, I am still motivated enough to put some action behind those empty promises and really work on getting healthier.
I have been checking out websites and books and getting ideas on how to kick start our "getting fit and healthy" regime going. One thing will be to fill our kitchen with healthy foods--if the junk isn't there, we can't eat it, right? So fresh fruit and veggies will be in plentiful supply while the chocolate chip cookies and chips will be taking a "vacation" for a bit.
I also have been reading about colon cleansing. I have a niece who did this, along with her fiance, and they also did a "cleansing diet" for two weeks as well. They swear they feel better and more energetic than ever before. I am a bit nervous, shall we say, about the colon cleansing thing, but I found out some interesting things about it. For example, The idea behind a colon cleanse,such as the herbal based Dual Action Cleanse, is to eliminate the toxins which have built up in your digestive system. These detoxification processes are so important to maintaining a healthy balance in your body that many doctors consider it to be a key to personal wellness! And I didn't know that more radiant skin and hair, could be benefits from eliminating the toxins in our digestive tracts. Maybe the hubby and I will give this a try. Sounds like a healthy way to start our "get healthier this year" regime. But I'd love to hear from anyone who has done it and hear what you thought of it.

  1. This sounds good...I've always wondered about the cleansing thing, and an herbal one sounds much better. Are you going to do it? I might look into that, too!
