Still Growing Healthier

A month later I am down 11 pounds and doing well. I feel full of energy and my thoughts are much clearer. How do I know? In class yesterday, before nine smart teens and in close proximity to the IQ-dropping whiteboard I was able to think through a Goclenian sorites and bring up from the depths of my Challenge B memories the notion of “self-supported statement” to answer a question. Yeah!

Some lovely feasts this week have kept me from losing but I haven’t gained. Moving forward! I’ll post Before and After at the end of my second 30 day.

Today I sat my kids down and gave them journals. Tomorrow they will weigh and measure so they have Before data. We’ll take pictures. I had them write down how they feel now and write over the next few months any improvement they notice. They have been on shakes for a few days. One wants to do the cleanse; others want the Ionix, which is full of adaptogens.

I ran a 15 minute room-cleaning blitz and rewarded all with an Isagenix chocolate. The one whose room improved the most got an Isalean bar too. And now we all have cleaner bedrooms! Win win win.
