In my last post, I talked about wanting to do a reboot and I will be doing in just not set on a start date yet. I think it is important when doing something that may not be the easiest to set some goals. I need to figure out why exactly I want to do the reboot and what results I expect from it.
I want to be clear the reboot is not to lose weight. I am at a healthy weight for my height and body type. I really have no clue what my actual weight is. I don't weigh myself religiously, I don't think that is healthy behavior, and it has been a long time since I have been to the doctor.
The reboot is for me to clean my body of all the toxins and junk I have been eating over the last year and the 22 years before that. It's a jump start for me to get back into a plant based whole food lifestyle.
I also hope it:
- helps clear up my skin. I have always suffered from mild acne. It is so much worse when I eat dairy. Recently, I even started to get acne on places other than my face, like my back. I never struggled with body acne before and I am not a fan.
- give me more energy. There was a time when I only drank coffee because I thought it made me look cool. Since having kids, I went from not even owning a coffee pot to drinking a whole pot of coffee black every morning. I feel the need for coffee even on days when I go to bed early or sleep in late. I love coffee but I want to drink only two cups a day, at most, and not feel drained in the afternoon.
Those are my three main hopes. Any other improvements will be a bonus in my book.
