You might be wondering, okay so what’s going on and what is she talking about now! Before I answer that question, let me ask you a couple of my own…
- Did you have a great summer?
- Did you get a chance to get out and explore?
- Did you eat well?
- Did you eat whatever you wanted?
- Were you able to try some new delicacies, restaurants, and foods?
So, you might be asking or noticed that my last 3 questions were pertaining to food; so yeah, to answer your question; that’s what this post is all about, RESETTING from summers heydays of fun and adventures, BUT MOSTLY……
Therefore, it’s time for a RESET! and what better time to make that move forward – than the present, especially as the summer winds down and fall make it’s way slowly up to home plate. I know recently, I decided to do a reset anddddd surprisingly – my son and daughter decided they wanted to join me! Which is amazing, because they NEVER want to do anything I want to do, so I guess for a split second – I felt cool (If you don’t have teens or pre-teens now or yet, this is a HUGE deal…just warning you now…lol)
We’re all doing the JJ-Smith 10 Day Green Smoothie Cleanse. If you don’t know who JJ Smith is, she’s the lady (see below) that busted on the scene in 2014 with the book entitled “10 Day Green Smoothie Cleanse.” In the book, JJ details and breaks down how to detoxify your body by incorporating “greens” into your diet. You can either do the full version (in which you’ll do 3 smoothies a day with snacks, in which she details which ones are better) or you can do the modified version of having 2 smoothies and a sensible meal. People have praised about loosing anywhere from 10-15 pounds or more within the 10 day period. Whether you do the full or the modified version, you’re still guaranteed to lose weight (if you do as the book instructs, which is with anything – right?)
This book sold like hotcakes when it hit the scene as everyone was interested in what they needed to do to lose those stubborn pounds and anything that states you will lose a significant amount weight within any 1 to 10 day period is guaranteed to be a WINNER. Now, I have to be honest – I’ve tried this system before and yes, it really does work – BUT truth be told, I only got through the first 5 days. However; you will lose weight and will feel refreshed once you go through it – TOTALLY!
That’s the reason why I’m writing this post in which as you’re reading – I’m on DAY 3! if you can get through the first three days you’re good, it’s the weekends that kill it for me but I shall persevere plus, I need to be held accountable so writing about it will help me feel somewhat accountable. I know that probably doesn’t make sense, but it’s a “my mind” thing. It’s great that we give our bodies a reset every 3 or 4 months I would say because we put so much in it and take it through so many different eating arenas – it’s no wonder it gets clogged up and can’t perform like it should. We have to push out those toxins! and while going to the bathroom to do the doo is good, sometimes that’s not enough as we still could be impacted, in which is why this cleanse and maybe others you’ve tried is beneficial to get to the root of the matter.
So, wish us luck – 3 down and 7 more days to Go!! We Can Do This, In which is the mantra I’ve been having with the kids ever since day one. We get in a circle, with all of our hands in and shout “WE CAN DO THIS!!” In which in turn they gave me blank stares when we got done as if to say, Really Mom? as I was smiling cheesily – Yeahhh, I think my cool card was pulled – And I had just gotten IT!!
Anywho – Hey, are you looking for a restart? Maybe for your family or yourself. Well, no worries – I took the liberty of typing out ALL of the 10 smoothie recipes for YOU! (see below). Feel free to print it out to get delicious recipes as well as follow JJ Smith and find out other “health” books she has available. I also provided the link to join her FB Group.

Your mind, body and overall well-being will thank you later…If you do take the initiative to start – let me know how it goes for you!
