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!

Some beauty items have such cult status that I literally kick myself in my aerobicised butt sometimes for not adding them to my kit sooner!
Case in point, Cle de Peau concealer.
Year after year this creamy, flawless formula wins beauty awards and is mentioned as a make up artist must have.
I visited the Cle de Peau counter at the Fashion Show Mall in Las Vegas to discover whether the hype was true.
The make up artist at the counter not only gave me the best customer service I've had in recent history, but she also perfectly matched my skin and applied the product gorgeously.
So yes, the this concealer really is all that. It's the only formulation I've found that doesn't accentuate texture around the eye. It blends smoothly and actually diffuses and reflects light, created a "lit from within" effect.
Combined with Cle de Peau's fabulously rich and creamy, yet not greasy Eye Contour Balm, you have a concealer that looks fabulous while treating the delicate skin around your eyes to an eye cream that delivers results.
