Day 7: 8 Day Fast/Cleanse Diary

Written by Isabelle Giroux ND on . Posted in Blog, Challenge, Cleansing, Detox

Can you believe it?

Day 7: Well, I have I have made up my mind and I will end my fast tomorrow. I have made my decision regarding the liver flush. If I have come this far, I might as well go for it! Tonight I am getting ready for my liver cleanse and tomorrow, I will start reintroducing food. I am so very happy about my results thus far and I am looking forward to my liver cleanse. I really use to hate this part of the cleanse, but since I have brought a few changes to it, I find the oil goes down a lot better, probably because the taste is so much better! It is still a demanding process for the entire being (physically, mentally and spiritually) and should not be done without the supervision of a health professional.

Today was a great day! I had a great bowel movement this morning, my energy was high and I was clear and focused. I took full advantage of the day and spent it with my SELF. I did my meditation this morning, my readings and although I was not planning on exercising, running up and down the stairs 8 times gave me my physical fix. I had planned to do all my Christmas shopping also today because when done early with no rush, I LOOVVVEEE it! So that is exactly what I did. I prepped all my stuff for the day and was off. Aside the occasional pit stop for some lemonade and a potty stop, I felt wonderful the entire day. I arrived back home with excitement. Not only had the day given me a bubble moment, but I got a chance to listen to some inspirational CDs in the car and I got VERY clear on my goals.
I had been tossing a few around, but the fast helped me in more ways than one. Keeping direction is always important. This is what helps me know what to do and when so I feel I am moving forward towards my goals. I may not have reviewed my main goals daily, but with this new clear sense of focus, I am grateful to know where I am going and what steps I must take to get there.

Now onward, towards that liver cleanse!

Week 27 / Semaine 27

Week 27. Train for a triathlon even if you have never been a real athlete. Ten years ago, if someone told Heath Eskalyo he’d one day compete in the Ironman triathlon, he would of said they where crazy! Never a swimmer (his mom was too nervous), he got a coach who worked with him, and over the past several years he has built his way up from shorter-distance triathlons to the Ironman, which requires a 2.4-mile swim, a 112-mile bike ride and running a 26.2-mile marathon with no break in between. The mad event starts with some 1,500 people jumping into the ocean at the same time. “It’s a washing machine. You’re going to be kicked, punched, elbowed,” says Eskalyo, 44. Finishing the event requires endurance and willpower—and brings Eskalyo a rare sense of accomplishment that drives him to go after bigger goals. What about you, do you have a”bigger”goal? Do you have a coach that will help bring you “there”? What are you willing to do to LIVE your goal?

Semaine 27: s’entraîner pour un triathlon même si vous n’êtes pas un athlète. Si quelqu’un avait dit à Heath Eskalyo il y a dix ans, qu’il rivaliserait dans un triathlon Ironman, il leur aurait dit qu’il était fou! Par contre, avec l’aide d’un entraîneur, et même s’il n’a jamais été un grand nageur(sa mère était trop nerveuse), au cours des dernières années, il a réussi des plus petits triathlons jusqu’au triathlon l’Ironman, qui exige une course en nage de 2.4 milles, une course à vélo de 112 milles et un marathon de 26.2 milles sans pause au milieu. 1,500 personnes sautant dans l’océan en même temps pour prendre part à cet événement fou. “C’est une machine à laver. Vous recevez des coups de pieds, poings et coudes,” dit Eskalyo, 44 ans. Pour terminer l’événement, cela exige de l’endurance et de la volonté, et cela apporte Eskalyo un sentiment d’accomplissement qui le motive à poursuivre des buts encore plus grands. Qu’en est-il de vous, avez-vous un but “plus grand”? Avez-vous un entraîneur qui vous aidera à vous rendre “là”? Qu’êtes-vous prêt à faire pour VIVRE votre but?

Week 24 / Semaine 24

Week 24: Write a book with the time saved by not watching TV. So many people have wonderful ideas and would love to share them with the world, but when asked why they haven’t done so, it is more often than none, the lack of time that prevents them from doing so. By using your new acquired skill of cutting some TV time out, you can now use that time to start working on your new book. Waitley, author of 16 books suggests: “I’ve written them while most people are watching television.” Try to schedule uninterrupted blocks of time to do your best work. Don’t just write 20 words a week, or it’ll never get done. Act as if it’s a term paper or an exam. “You must treat it like that if you’re ever going to get it done.”

Semaine 24: Écrivez un livre avec le temps économisé en ne regardant pas la TV. Tant de personnes ont de merveilleuses idées et aimeraient les partager avec le monde, mais lorsque demandé pourquoi ils ne l’ont pas fait, plus souvent qu’autrement, c’est dû à un manque de temps. En appliquant votre nouvelle habileté a couper le temps de TV, vous pouvez maintenant utiliser ces moments pour commencer à écrire ce nouveau livre. Waitley, l’auteur de 16 livres suggère: “je les ai écrits lorsque la plupart des personnes regardent la télévision.” Essayez de prévoir des blocs ininterrompus de temps pour faire un meilleur travail. N’écrivez pas juste 20 mots par semaine, où il ne sera jamais complété. Voyez ça comme si c’est un travail de session ou un examen. “Vous devez le traiter comme ça si vous désirez le terminer un jour.”

Wednesday’s Thank You

I am so grateful that I didn’t give up!

There are moments in life when challenges seem overwhelming and without any hope, but there always is. Remembering “This too will pass”, working on maintaining a positive mindset and surrounding ourselves with positive “life” creating people/situations are the best and surest ways to insure that things will get better, the fog will clear and that there IS hope.

I believe it is like planting a garden/flowers. You rarely see the results right away, and sometimes not even the first year. But if we keep the area clear of weeds and nurture it, then the following year, it is in full bloom. The secret ingredient to making it happen, FAITH…

Je suis si reconnaissante de ne pas avoir abandonné!

Il y a des moments dans la vie que les défis semblent écrasants et sans espoir, mais il y en a toujours. Se rappeler que “ceci aussi passera”, maintenir une attitude positive et s’entourer de gens/situations qui créent la vie, sont les façons les plus certaines pour s’assurer que les choses s’amélioreront, que le brouillard se dégagera et qu’il y a espoir.

Ceci ressemble à la plantation d’un jardin ou des fleurs. Nous voyons rarement les résultats tout de suite, parfois même pas la première année. Mais si nous gardons cet endroit libre de mauvaises herbe et nous l’entretenons, alors l’année suivante, ça sera en pleine floraison. L’ingrédient secret pour s’assurer que ceci se manifeste, la FOI…

Another Dimension To Courage

When we all-heartedly want something, it can be very difficult to accept if it doesn’t manifest itself or if it comes in a different form than we had expected, especially if we have invested so much. It requires so much strength and courage to accept the things we cannot change, as to persevere towards the things that we can.

BE strong, BE courageous and have faith!

DARE! DECIDE! DO IT!
