This is my favorite time of the year. I wake up to the birds singing. Really! It stinks when I want to sleep late, but otherwise it’s fabulous.

Open the windows, trim the plants, get the cushions back on the deck furniture, look in the mirror… OH MY GOD! Who’s THAT!

The winter has not been very good to me.

Should I choose to list all the reason why the Winter has not been good to me, we would hear the faint sound of violins playing in the background which would increase in volume as my excuses got more dramatic.

But the bottom line, and I mean bottom, is that now it’s time to do damage control. FAST!

Everything about Spring is inspiring. The plants and animals come back to life, the days get longer and the flowers are blooming. These are from my yard. I always feel revitalized and motivated this time of the year.

But (or should I say butt) back to the bottom line. Spring is also a time to clean up our act. The house, the yard and our waistlines. You handle the first two, and let’s talk about the last one…

I need to get my body’s attention! Snap it out of the comma it has been in. So I’ve created a plan of attack and here it is.

I am focusing on nutrients and protein. I am making an “elixir” of veggies to eat for the next five day. And for protein, I’m going to eat two to three ounces of fish, eggs or chicken four times a day. I will also drink 100 ounces of water each day. Some of the water will have fresh lemon juice and a little cayenne pepper mixed in. The lemon and cayenne, along with the shear volume of water acts as a diuretic, as does the elixir. The recipe is in the recipe section of this site.

So that means, doing the math, if I don’t eat past 7:00 p.m., I would eat every three hours. Now I will be the first to say that this will take some planning! I tend to get busy and forget to eat. So I will make a big pot of elixir and precook my protein ahead of time. I will also plan around working and meetings. But for five days I can do anything. And to get back to my fabulous self will be well worth it.

The goal is to clean out my system and rev it up at the same time. And if this doesn’t do it, I don’t know what will!

With this approach, I will still be giving my body well needed nutrients and sustain my muscle mass while purging out the sludge collected over the Winter. It will also get me back into the habit of eating clean, lean, unprocessed foods.

I am not a believer in complete fasting. For those of us who have ruined our metabolism from yo-yo dieting over the years, fasting can do you more harm than good. Once you start back eating, your body stores more fat incase you get the crazy idea of fasting again! I hate it when my body tries to protect me from me!

I’m going to get back into my cute Spring clothes if it kills me (or heals me!)

Join me, won’t you?

And until next time, Eat On Purpose!

Happy Living!
