Day 4 of incorporating Isagenix into my life. So far so good. But I better explain my morning routine which is the most complicated. I wake up at 4:30 AM, yes you read that right. For some of you older people 4:30AM is not so strange but for you younger folk 4:30AM sounds a bit insane. The 4:30 AM wake up call is recent. It was one of my goals for this year. I go downstairs and take my Iso Supreme and drink my water. Some days I make our green juice and then go upstairs to start my workout and other days I do my workout first then make the juice, I wake the kids up after my workout which is usually 6:00 AM or 6:15 AM. It just depends if I do 50 minutes on elliptical or 60. After my workout I drink a NUM which is a 10 calorie drink with my vitamins. One day I will write out all the vitamins I take. Isagenix has a hydrating drink similar to the NUM but it's more calories and aren't we trying to cut out the calories. After taking my many vitamins I go back upstairs to shower and get ready. Of course the kids, dogs and the parakeets are up and fully awake. Its up to the kids to get themselves ready, this has been since they were young. Independence is key to a stress free zone. Wow, I am already had a full day between 4.30 AM and 7:30 AM. It's been a journey on a slow bumpy road to get to this point. If you had given me Isagenix 1 or 2 years ago I would not have made it to the fourth day. I can tell you I was not disciplined back then and I have had to work on it and continue to work on it. Discipline is key with any type of diet or program. If you don't have that then you are not going to get very far.
Today is the day I start Isagenix. I have been on a health journey for 4 years. I gradually started my journey but despite all I have done and continue to do I can lose the fat around my stomach. So, with that I decided to try this product and see if it does anything for me.
I am following it the best I can and today is day one. The exception is that I am not willing to give up my healthy blended juice in the morning which has done wonders for me and my children. So, I am incorporating it into the Isagenix routine. Let's see how it goes. I am going to continue to exercise on my elliptical 5 times a day for 60 minutes.
The Isagenix shake I choose to go with is the Berry non-dairy flavor which is more expensive. But I don't do dairy and I don's like vanilla or chocolate drinks. I have to admit I wasn't all to happy that because the product is non dairy it is more expensive.
I have downloaded an app to keep me on track. It's called Cleanse Tracker, it does not have the best reviews but it will do for now. I have also created an Isagenix calendar in my google calendar to help me keep track and stay on track.
I took the before pictures and my measurements. I will post new pictures along with the before in a week to show my progress. Wish me luck!
Why this blog? It's been a long time coming. I have been wanting to do this for such along time. Why have I been apprehensive? Well, because I want it to be honest, real and helpful. I have been on this journey for the last 3 years. It has been a step by step process that has helped me and my 2 kids. As a single parent, not by choice (I may or may not explain this later in a separate post). This journey has been difficult and rewarding. There are so many parts to this journey, I am not quite sure where to begin. I hope that as I continue to blog I can tell and recall as much as I can so I may inspire and encourage you to take the little steps that led me to bigger steps. I don’t want you to compare yourself to me but to see that changes can be made. Although, they may seem impossible at some point, that one day you will look in the mirror and say “Dam, I did it or I am doing it. Yes, I have done that and cried, I have looked in that mirror so many times and been amazed at how far I have gotten. Because if you want to get anywhere in life you need to do it yourself, don’t wait for others to do for you. That’s just unrealistic and honestly you will be waiting along time. Ultimately, you're the one that needs to do for you what needs to be done. End of story!
