Recently I was thinking about how people set goals to detoxify their body. Sometimes they do a juice cleanse. Always they set goals to completely avoid all sugar, alcohol, caffeine, soda, and anything that is not healthy for their body. This is so great for wellness! I am actually not one who has done a full detox for days at a time but I do fast regularly. I have recently lost 10 pounds doing the Warrior Fast. I eat only a few snacks of protein or fruits and vegetables during the morning and afternoon. Generally, I am probably intaking about 400 calories during the day. Then, in the evening I eat a regular dinner with portion control and only one portion of carbohydrates. I still eat some kind of a snack before bed, sometimes more protein or some popcorn. I am feeling amazing with tons of energy.
Just recently I was thinking, what if I did a detox for my relationship and get my clients to do the same? I started today, and I am challenging myself for 30 days. No complaints or criticism towards my husband, only positive comments. I am going to be extra supportive and loving. Today, I left a voice mail that was just nice and thoughtful like back when we were dating. In recent years, it seems like we are so busy each day that if I get his voice mail I just hang up and text him whatever my question is. Today, I got the voice mail again (he is with customers). Sigh. But instead of hanging up I left a nice voice mail. Maybe that’s akin to a fruit smoothie?
All right people, let me know how this goes. I think it’s going to be really bring some closeness and passion back into my relationship, and I am committed to making it work even if….. I mean when my husband gets a little grouchy!
