How did your first day go yesterday?  Were you able to stick to it?  Go without your daiy coffee or caffeine fix?  Let us know :)

Here's today's interesting tid bit to help enhance your cleanse!

 

We often overlook our lymphatic system.  This can be seen as our personal sewage system as it carries away excess waste and toxins. The lymphatic system is located directly under the skin so a light circular massage is all you need to stimulate it.

Help your lymph fluid flow and remove dead skin cells with a dry skin brushing session once a week. 

Here’s how: Just before showering or bathing, start at the feet and gently brush with long, sweeping strokes upward toward the heart and main lymph nodes.  Continue brushing from the extremities toward the heart center.  Gently brush in a circular motion around the stomach and chest.  It takes only about 5-10 minutes!  

Here are two good diagrams!

Day 1 went great!! I loved the blasts, everyone of them. I had nothing extra but lots of water. It was easy. Day 2 is also going great. I find the only time I'm hungry is around 9:30 am, so I have my 10 am blast a little early. It's 12 noon and I'm still full. I love the Tomato Toddie with a little pepper it's a good subsitute for a bottled veggie drink. I like my own receipes but I am going to pay attention to NB receipes - they're great!! Maybe even read the 6 week Transformation info. Thank you, I'm enjoying my NB even more so now.
I am so dizzy.It's progressed from a fog to downright dizzy. Having the 10 AM blast now since I started late. I'm trying to stick with it, but I may need something else today.
Not to crazy about the Tomato Toddie. Decided for day two to dice up all the ingredients, add chopped parsley, a squeeze of lemon and eat like a salad.
This is the first time that I've ever completed one day of a cleanse! I'm very excited to continue. I did have one cup of coffee with almond milk because in the past it was always the headache that made me fail. I wasn't hungry until my family was having dinner but I followed the advice of taking my bath while they ate. Today I am ommitting the ginger and the turmeric and I'm enjoying it much more.
So glad you all are doing well! Keep it up and feel free to make modifications to help you stick to it. Try to resist the urge to have coffee/caffeine. If you must, try green tea instead. If you are feeling too light headed and/or are feeling cold all the time, then maybe heat up your Tomato Toddie and add in some spices for more of a soup-like treat! Or if you just can't handle any more liquid. Steam some veggies in place of one of your NutriBlasts. Think steamed broccoli, carrots, green beans, cauliflower, zucchini, etc. Just plain veggies, no sauces or butter :)
