Starting with the good news – I’m very happy to report that one week into my (early) Spring Cleanse and I’ve lost 2 kilos. Yeeha! I’m feeling lighter and better in my physical body, which is a relief after swinging in the opposite direction for a while there.
But, like most things in life, the results don’t come without some effort. In fact, I’d say that the No Pain, No Gain slogan has never rung truer for me than over the past week. I’ve felt confused, emotional and even a little whacko at times as all the toxins work their way out of my body, one fairy floss cocktail at a time. While it is not this way for everyone, it’s been tough for me this time round.
So tough, in fact, that week one has reminded me of giving birth seven years ago. Huh?! Like cleansing, it was an intense experience, involving a palpable level of pain that was forgotten almost instantly because the rewards were so great afterwards.
A good heart-to-heart with MFL Group Trainer Gus Rickard at morning sessions this week reveals what is going on in the body as we cleanse, and essentially, why it can hurt so much (for some, but not all people).
