The 30-Day Challenge: Day 3: Alkalizing Starter Bundle

Day 3 of my 30-Day Alkalizing Challenge improved over Day 2.
I increased the alkalinity of my diet by adding fresh heirloom tomatoes to breakfast and lessening the amount of sugar in my coffee (which I have cut down to 1-1/2 venti servings per day--way down from my usual 3-4 venti servings... also, my "caffeine withdrawal headache" is gone).

I had less physical exercise today (it was VERY muggy and over 90 degrees!), but taking time for meditation and using the chi machine helped me focus and feel better for the rest of the day. Nevertheless, I had a small weight loss of two pounds since Day 1: See my tracking chart

Finally, don't forget the SuperGreens! I mixed in some organic, squeezed lemon juice to the SuperGreens and water, which increases the alkalinity further, because I didn't have any LL Prime pH on hand.

However, InnerLight does sell a nice Starter Bundle package, which includes powdered SuperGreens, LL Prime pH, a Water bottle, Alkalarian Optimal Health Booklet, SuperGreen Instruction card, a full Product Catalog, and a Health Talk CD to give further encouragement in your alkalizing lifestyle--at a modest discount than if everything were purchased separately.
Well, until tomorrow... Happy Alkalizing!

The 30-Day Challenge: Day 2

Well, day 2 here, and everything seems to be going well enough. The main thing I noticed today is that my breakfast is pretty acidic-oriented. I used to eat salads for breakfast, so I'll try that out tomorrow. Also, I cut down to one coffee yesterday and got a significant headache, but I just headed out on my bike for a 2 hour ride around the city's bike trails, and everything seemed okay. I plan to continue tomorrow!

The 30-Day Challenge: Day 1

So, my 7-Day Cleanse really energized me, but staying on a full-time SuperGreens juice cleanse is just not possible--and then there was drift... bad habits crept back in to my lifestyle and undermined my progress. I'm not all the way back to before my cleanse, but it will happen if I don't stop.

Friday though, I received an encouraging email from my own InnerLight IBC enrollers, Jim and Marie Dahlen (click to see them in an earlier post), suggesting their downline try 30 days of an alkaline lifestyle.
For me, this email arrived just at the right time, because I knew I was sliding back down the acidic path but wanted to be healthy and fully energized for some travel I am planning at the end of the month.

Their first suggestion was to believe 100% that you can make these changes for 30 days--an investment I've made before in the past. I'd already followed their first suggestion, so the rest was easy.

Today, I planned out what exactly my goals are and made a chart to reach them. My goals are:
  1. Track the foods I eat for 30 days, plus weight and activities
  2. Make a tracking Chart - Feel free to copy and use it
  3. Blog about my progress, to create accountability and more goals
