Detoxification is the process our body uses to cleanse itself of everyday toxins our body takes in such as preservatives, caffeine, nicotine, alcohol, and certain sugars.
For most people, the body cannot get rid of the toxins as quickly as we put them in. That is why it is important to help your system catch up.
Choose a detox program that helps reduce the amount of toxins we ingest and assists the body's natural processes for eliminating toxins already in your system.

The Ideal Meal
Breakfast plays several nutritional roles, variety is a must.
High quality Carbohydrates (whole grains, cereals, fruit, 100 percent juices, yogurt, chocolate milk) provide quick muscle and brain energy.
Protein (eggs, meat, milk, yogurt, nuts, nut butters, seeds, legumes) provides satiety and helps maintain and build lean muscle tissue.
Fiber (whole grains, fruits, vegetables) also boost satiety while providing other benefits like lowering lipids, maintaining regularity, and controlling blood sugar.
Fluids (water, milk, juice, smoothies, coffee, tea) helps get people hydrated after a night of sleep.
Avaid: foods high in fat, that are fried, or made of processed sugars
Look for cereals: four or more grams of protein, five or more grams of fiber, and 12 or fewer grams of sugar per serving

Count Your Blessings
Playing to Your strengths
It's temping isn't it. It's so much easier to see what's wrong with yourself and your life than to take advantage of what's right. The problem is, too much focus on the negative can affect your attitude and opinion of yourself it's a quick road to burn out. While it's important to pay attention to things you can improve. your best bet for a break through lies in maximizing what you are already good at. The secret is to use those strengths to help boost yourself up where you need to help. What are your major talents? What do you have a special knack for? Set specific goals to improve those talents and don't fret as much about your weak spots. They'll get the extra help they need as a climb higher.
The sun will come out tomorrow.
Remember: if you spend too much time working on your weakness, all you end up with is a lot of strong weaknesses
To stay consistent long enough to become a creature of healthy
habits, surround yourself with visual, written and well-placed reminders that
steady the course and help you refocus. Use positive images and words. Find a
visual that shows why you want to lose weight in the first place, or what youíll
be doing with your weight loss. A picture of your kids, the new dress you want
to wear, a basketball.
Every day is a chance to build momentum or to slack. Every day, you have to decide to make the right choices. Keeping your goals and motivators close by helps you make that decision and feel good about it. Remember, this is a positive experience! Youíre doing something good for yourself, your loved ones and your future. Donít waste any opportunity to remind yourself of that fact and congratulate yourself on progress.
"the body will adapt to your usual and ordinary workouts, hence, NO CHANGE.. REAL TRANSFORMATION comes from enduring tough and diverse workouts.. YOU have to WANT IT bad enough.. keep trying to jump starting your engine.. IT WILL START.. when it does, DON'T STOP or DON'T TURN BACK!"
"your mind, body, and soul are your most valuable possessions, so keep them healthy and fit.."
"to loose weight you must shake it and bake it... when you bake it, it burns fat and it builds lean muscle to keep the fat off... "
"do everything in moderation, especially how much you eat.."
