Ultimate Reset Day 2

Yesterday was a pretty decent day. I felt a little foggy-minded and became really cold in the afternoon despite the 74 degrees.  I put on a hoodie and socks and I was good.  I slept really well, except for some anxiety dreams that woke me up this morning, but I was already very rested. Today I've been in the mood to clean and get rid of stuff.  I've heard that can be a side effect of cleansing your body, you also want to cleanse your life.  If that's the case, then I'm thrilled!
What do you mean I have to drink 3 of these?!
This morning I took my measurements.  I told my partners in this challenge that I have the perfect hour glass figure.  Unfortunately, it was a dark hour.  But the darkest hour is just before the dawn!

Taking my measurements was probably the hardest part of the entire reset.  I was afraid to do it. I've gained 8 pounds since Christmas and I had convinced myself that my behavior didn't matter.  "Sure, have this cookie!  It won't change anything."  I believed my own lies, like a fool.  These kind of shifts in attitude creep up on me.  I stopped believing in my dreams. I stopped believing that they could be more than dreams, they could be reality if I was willing to work. They became unattainable.  It surprises me to some extent because I already achieved one unattainable dream: to fit into my pre-children clothes.  I never thought I'd be able to wear that size again, but I worked hard, I never gave in and I achieved it.

Well, NO MORE! I have caught myself just in the nick of time.  I will achieve my dream of feeling confident in a bathing suit.  It's not about the bathing suit, it's about the body I will have that will allow me to feel confident in whatever I wear, not self-conscious at all.  I have an image in my mind and I'm going to find an image on paper that represents my goal and it is going up on my dream board.  I don't currently have a dream board, but I am a visual person and I need constant reminders, so a dream board I will make.

I hope you will keep me in your prayers for these 21 days.  I am not sure what I will be experiencing. Detoxing your body can have some uncomfortable physical symptoms and even emotional symptoms.  That's ok. I'm all in. But I will still welcome your prayers for a successful journey to better health.
