First, I want to say “Thank You” for the amazing feedback with my efforts with my new blog. I appreciate you all. Now, let’s get back to business.
My last blog I tried to simplify the thought process for helping ourselves to get healthier and lose some weight in the process. I promised to return with some better food choices and here I am. I never write to assume that anyone is ignorant, however, I only write to help with the information that I already know, from my own experience. I would not suggest anything that I have not tried myself. I will leave that to skeptics. I like to deal with facts and experience because personally, I am not fond of looking stupid. If I make a mistake, then by all means, please feel free to correct me so that I may learn too. And I do not mean occasional errors on grammar. * Smile* I am human and not a robot. Ok, Let’s go…
Lemons: Hello, why did I not know this years ago? I recently decided to add lemons to my daily routine of doing something amazing for my skin and health. Why? One day after using lemons for a fad diet/cleanse, the one thing that stood out the most to me was how my skin GLOWED. Yes, literally glowed with a healthy look. I then read something, somewhere, where it was suggested that lemons be used to start one’s day. In my last bout to lose excess pounds to be onstage to compete, I was willing to try anything, and everything. I now squeeze a full lemon into my 16oz of morning water (because it is mandatory that I start my daily schedule with getting that first 16oz of water in and out of the way) and I do. I down it! I do not think about it; I just do it. I tell son, ” Son, you are not doing this for fun, you are doing it for health. Do not think about it, just do it ” He now guzzles his water in too. Who in the world is going to be able to sip in a gallon a day and that is how much I require of my healthy little family (That will be another blog topic to come)
Think about this, besides the researched facts based on lemons that will support my efforts here (I will leave that to you, always remember to do your own research), let’s just use some common sense. How many products do we see on the shelves that use lemons to do what? yes, CLEAN. Hello, duh! As a very practical woman, that is convincing enough information, and I for one love to clean out my insides (if you know what I mean) so, yes, I drink the lemon water daily to stay feeling lighter on my feet and to continue attaining that glow. I also have my son drink the lemon water (I add a little stevia to his water in order to mimic the likes of lemonade) when he is having difficulties with his skin. As a growing 14-year-old , teens are bound to have outbreaks, however, it certainly may be a worse break-out for that day if my son had been making greasy food choices lately. I promise you that I have stood by his side and had him drink two, back to back, glasses of lemon water along with his nightly cleaning regimen. In the morning, it is like a freegan miracle, my son’s face is always much calmer, and sometimes his face has cleared up completely. Now, I am sure results may vary but, I have seen it work like magic, and now my son asks “ME “to make him the lemon water if he knows he has made naughty food choices that day. (especially if he has big plans the next day and needs his face clear). So that is three great reasons to add lemons to your daily eating plan. Even if you hate my reasons, what would it hurt anyway? Again, research all of the other amazing healthy aspects of a lemon and then decide for yourself.
I have way more to share, but I want my blogs to be short and sweet because let’s face it, I bore easily myself, and will not read a long blog so why would I expect anyone else to. I will be back soon, with many other food choices, to throw into your daily regimen. Little changes daily, weekly, or even monthly will all add up to a life-changing experience. It is my hopes that we can do this together for the long haul. Y’all have a great weekend and be safe. Thank you for reading.
