I have decided to join four fellow rebel-reclaimers (Akilah Richards of Execumama.com, Trelani Hall Duncan of Sofundamental.com, Katrina Harrell @NovemberSage and Monique Halley of Simplyblissliving.com ) in reclaiming my temple and rebelling against the trend of the unwell. I had only recently (over the last year or so) made a decision to eat less gluten, more fruits and vegetable, and to cut down significantly on sugar, but I nevertheless enthusiastically welcome this Reclaim Rebellion journey. This will certainly serve to bolster my decision and will be right in line with my aging-well lifestyle that I've embraced.
This is a 38-day journey broken down as follows:
-- 7 days of transitioning into the journey
-- 1 day of water fasting
-- 20 days fruitarianism
-- 5 days vegan
-- 5 days vegetarian
Days 1 through 6 were quite easy and helped me get a better grasp on my wellness journey, particularly as a 50-plus woman.
I started eating even more fruits and vegetables by replacing at least one daily meal with a fruit or with a vegetable salad. Having a fruit-only meal is fun...it really is! Watermelon for lunch is filling, refreshing, nourishing, satisfying...ok -- let me stop! Another example is eating an entire pineapple for breakfast, then drinking lots of water afterwards. Super delicious! Other times I had a green vegetable salad (lettuce or kale with cucumbers) for dinner, and used a blend of mango and tomato as my salad dressing. Extremely delicious. These choices are in direct lining with my impending 20 days of fruitarianism.
I'm ready-- both physically and psychologically.
Ready for how great I will feel. Ready for the weight I will lose. Ready for the feeling of satisfaction I will get from sticking steadfastly to a journey that's rewarding to my health and well-being in more ways than one.
Join me as I chronicle this life-changing journey. You may be tempted to try it. In fact, I'm hoping you will.
