It's 10am and I've already unpacked all our suitcases, washed 4 loads of laundry and put everything in its place. I even had a conference call about the revamp of my personal website and a chat with my managers. Life just keeps on rolling no matter how tired you are!
I've never really blogged before.... so bare with me. I may write random and detailed accounts of things that don't really relate to losing 10 pounds. And some days I may give you more information than you wanted to know about my eating habits! I'm just going to have fun here at www.reshapingitall.com and hope you will too.
I wanted to start off by addressing a few things. I want you to know that I'm not writing this as a "celebrity". I'm not getting paid to promote any products. I'm simply writing this blog as a mom and wife who's job is being actress (which often times make me more aware of my body). I'm not blogging about losing weight to become skinny or skinnier. In fact, I'm a big advocate for being FIT. I love weight training and will take muscles over skinny any day. (And that's not put down anyone who is skinny by nature.) I've just put on a few pounds over that last year and want to get back to my normal weight range which typically fluctuates 2-4 pounds.
With that being said...I only have 7 pounds to lose according to my scale at home. To be honest (which I only will be honest with you), I weighed myself a few days ago in Switzerland at the end of our vacation and was up exactly 10 pounds from my normal weight. I knew some of those pounds were vacation pounds- which I expected to put on, HAPPILY! I also knew that the first few pounds would shed quickly just by being back at home and in my normal routine. A few days of clean-er eating, I'm down a few already. For instance, on the plane rides home, I skipped the desert, drank only water, took the skin off the chicken and just ate the side salad and veggies, not the grits. Yes, they served grits.
To start the process, I decided to do a 5 day juice cleanse. I know people have varying opinions about juice cleanses.... I happen to like them. It's not a fast, but a cleanse. I ate my way through Europe, literally. I ate my weight in pasta, cheese, gelato, bread and wine. Those are things I typically reserve for occasions or in major moderation, but for the last 3 weeks, I kind of went for it and enjoyed every bite! To get myself back on track, doing a juice cleanse will help get rid of all the toxins and sugars I've accumulated and help my body adjust to normal healthy eating habits.
Here's where I get my juice cleanse from. www.pressedjuicery.com If you're up for it, check your local area for a juicery. If you have a Whole Foods nearby, they juice too! Or, juice from home. Obviously, that's the cheapest route. I just don't have a juicer and needed the convenience of a service. If you check out Pressed Juicery's website, I'm sure it will satisfy your juice cleanse questions WAY better than I ever could. And because I know you'll ask... I'm doing cleanse 2.
That's it for today! I've got another pre-interview phone call in a few minutes.
