Day 5!

Got the sunshine above

Wow - the feedback has been amazing from all the cleansers! Im really proud of how well you are all doing. You are going to thank yourself next week when you reach the end, you will be shining from the inside out!

Today I put up the final 2 steps of the Step-tember Body Clean out. With these you will now have 10 in total, and you will continue with these for the remainder of the cleanse - this will be for a further two days before we then hit the post-cleanse phase, where we slowly reintroduce foods and gently slide you out of cleansing mode. For those of you who wish to continue, you may. You might want to stick to some of it but add a little more protein, its up to you. Just know that I'm more than happy to answer any questions you have.

Here is day 5!

Step 9.
SLEEP – Make it count.

Minimum 8-9 hours sleep is essential to assist in the cleansing of your body. Aim to be in bed at 10pm each night. From a Chinese Medicine perspective, this is when your body is cleaning itself out. Each hour before midnight is the equivalent to two hours after midnight.
Step 10.
SUNSHINE – you need to get some in.

So wether it is whilst you walk each day, or sitting down to read for 10 – 15 minutes in the sun, Vitamin D is essential for good body function.

“Man often becomes what he believes himself to be. If I keep on saying to myself that I cannot do a certain thing, it is possible that I may end by really becoming incapable of doing it. On the contrary, if I have the belief that I can do it, I shall surely acquire the capacity to do it even if I may not have it at the beginning.”
- Mahatma Gandhi

  3. Hi Nat,

    I'm a day behind the rest of you on the account of my visit to Ouyen & the mandatory Vanilla Slice on Wednesday! :)

    I'm feeling great, no headache yet & have been drinking lots of water. Can I drink more than the hourly glass of water? I have been feeling extra thirsty & needing extra to quench my thirst!

    Also, I made an extremely easy & delicious bean dip earlier. I had a can of butter beans in the cupboard, I added a tiny drizzle of olive oil, a sprinkle of vege salt & pepper & a splash of vege stock (salt reduced), pureed them all together & ate with vege croutons... delicious! Its amazing what you can throw together when you have to be!

  4. Isn't it amazing Luci! I was wondering how you were traveling. Wait until you see the recipes I'm blogging tomorrow! So delicious. Im glad you are feeling well. I wonder how the rest of us are doing?
    And you can certainly drink as much water as you like. Try not to drink too much with meals though as it dilutes the gastric juices.


I thoroughly appreciate your comments, don't be shy to leave one!
