It’s day-10 of my alkaline juice cleanse. I made it to the last day and I’m super happy to be able to eat again. However, I’m not sure I really want to. This post is going to recap the last half of my cleanse/fast. I’m not sure if it’s just me or if other people feel this way as well, but I swore the closer I got to day-10 the easier it would be. . Day-5 was great I was able to see major difference in my body from day 1–but I felt terrible. I’m sure it’s because I fell off my routine of surrounding myself with positive energy and influence. I’ve been starting my day off with music instead of Joel Olsteen. I’ve been fatigue and too focused on what I was going to eat after my cleanse was over. All of this definitely has me a little off.
This overall journey, has been a learning experience. I’m excited to be closer to my body goals than I was 10-days ago. From here on, I have to be mindful of all the work I’ve put in, to maintain this size.
Although my cleanse is near the end, I still have to tone up and get this peach sitting right. I’m considering waist training, because I do want an hourglass shape. Since I don’t have much hips, my waist will have to be “smaller.”
At the start of this journey, my waist was at 33.8″. By day-5 my waist was at an even 32″. I will be measuring myself again today for the last result. After today, I will be introducing solids into my diet, but slowly. I do not want to gain any weight from over eating. My plant-based diet will be in full effect starting tomorrow. I think I’m going to juice two of my meals and eat dinner or a light lunch, but I’m not entirely sure.
I have to be honest and say I’m really freaking out about eating solids again, just because it has been so long since I had a real meal. I’m afraid my body is going to reject it–but I’m also really dramatic, so I’m sure nothing like that will happen.
By far my favorite part about this journey. I’ve had so many me and God moments! I went to church Sunday and it was so necessary. I started working full-time recently and I got paid on Friday. Listen guys, being able to tithe properly is the most amazing feeling on Earth. Tithing has always been my downfall. I’ve always spend my money and don’t think twice about tithing. I always wonder why I can’t keep money in my pocket. Overall, I’m just terrible with money. I believe that’s the result of me being squalid in giving back to the kingdom of God.
I cried so hard! It was a blessing being able to give.
I have to include God in my financial life in order for things to turn around. My ultimate goal in life is to have financial freedom. I have terrible credit and tons of student loans to pay back. My current circumstance looks as if I’ll be broke forever. I rebuke all that in the name of Jesus! I will be debt free and financially stable! Tithing will happen rather I make it to church physically or not.
“Every tithe of the land, whether of the seed of the land or of the fruit of the trees, is the Lord’s; it is holy to the Lord. If a man wishes to redeem some of his tithe, he shall add a fifth to it. And every tithe of herds and flocks, every tenth animal of all that pass under the herdsman’s staff, shall be holy to the Lord. One shall not differentiate between good or bad, neither shall he make a substitute for it; and if he does substitute for it, then both it and the substitute shall be holy; it shall not be redeemed.” Lev. 20:30-34
I believe this scripture with every part of me. I’ve witness blessings to those who are living by God’s law of tithing. Everything I own belongs to God, there is no reason for me to keep it from him, especially if all he request is 10 percent of it. I know God appreciated my seed, I was so happy to give it back to him. I encourage everyone to invest in their spiritual life. Rather you believe in God or not, you must feed your spirit and invest in it. We all have a spirit and if we deprive it of what it wants it will starve and dry up. That’s why we surround ourselves with these things we love and enjoy.
I want to thank everyone who has been following these post and encouraging me throughout this journey. I appreciate it all.
Remember to love you and love your journey!
