the book


Inspiring pictures, delicious ingredients, and what seemed to be a do-able plan, I picked up this book a million years ago {just before my wedding} and set on my quest for a cleansed mind, body and spirit.

I quit within a week.

And true to me, I punished myself with guilt and then quickly ‘rewarded’ myself for feeling guilty.  I ate.  And ate and ate…until I felt better about quitting.  The peculiar thing about me quitting is that I felt great on this plan.  I remember feeling lighter and having a clearer head.  I remember regularity {!} and my skin beginning to look brighter.   Will someone please riddle me that?  In less than a week on this plan, I felt all these amazingly positive things about my mind and body…and I f*cking quit?!  Thankfully, I believe in second chances and I am giving this another {proper} go.  It’s about time I take control of my health.

I am on day 2 and just cannot picture myself on day 28.  I keep telling myself, “It’s just a month.  In your whole entire life, it’s just a month.”

  1. You got this Shell! Be proud of every small and big steps you take. You joinery will be a great experience. Remember to stay connected to the change that will occur in your mind first, and the rest will follow. This will not be easy, but you know that. Know that It may get harder too, before it gets easier …… And that you are amazing and worth every second you give to your self in this journey… Peace and love dear sister! I love you!

  2. Thank you so much, Moe. My mind is definitely playing tricks on me {cravings are really bad at this point}, but I am reminded of what JP said…do this first and tell yourself you can have whatever you want when you’re done. You are such an inspiration. I cannot even express how much!

  3. If anyone can do this Shell, It’s you! You’er such a beautiful person inside and out, and you make me want to be a better person! I love you and am I can’t wait till you finish your first week, that will be the hardest.

  4. Thanks, Meg! Such kind words!!! Thank you! I am on day 4…can’t believe it! When I finish my first week, I will be so proud of myself! The kids were eating chocolate cake with chocolate frosting yesterday….killer! But I remember what Moe told me a while ago…to use the smell as a reminder of the taste. It actually sort of worked. 🙂 xoxo
