I don't know about your "neck of the woods" ... but, Spring is definitely here where I am!
Light rains mixed with milder temperatures ... Daylight savings time ...
What a great reminder to do some inner Spring Cleaning!
This is the time to start kicking your goals into high gear!
A great way to do that is to do a little "digestive" cleaning ... get things moving a bit, eh?
Be sure you are chewing your food well, taking your time to eat undistracted and drinking at least your bodyweight in ounces of plain water per day. Yes - plain water.
Water is IMO the BEST cleansing, detoxing agent out there!! It naturally flushes out your system, while hydrating you!
Adding in a cup or two of green tea is helpful too!
As far as food goes ... GREEN is the color for spring! Eat unlimited cooked/raw, plain green veggies. Add these into your current nutritional plan!!
Add spinach to your egg whites, a big salad to your lunch and steamed broccoli/asparagus to dinner!
You may also want to add some cleansing yoga twists into your workout warm up/cool down.
Here is a five minute twist series to try:
Have fun with your clean out!
