One Week To My Raw Food Cleanse.

Well as you know I ventured into a sugar free lifestyle way back in January of this year - and I've done really well to stay off the sugar - which is amazing for a huge chocoholic like me!!!!   But I will admit that I have had the odd piece now and then.

I have lost 16kg in the process and I feel amazing.  Its been so much fun shopping for new clothes.  So to top it all off I am going on a 8 day Raw Food Cleanse in Thailand.  This is something I have wanted to do for such a long time and given what has transpired in my life over the last 18 months it is now time for ME!!!!  This will be great for me physically, mentally and spiritually.

I will be leaving behind the wet and cold Gold Coast for the hopefully sunny but warm Phuket next Saturday.  I'm on the countdown now......

I will be going to Atmanjai which is located in Rawai, Phuket.  I chose to do the Raw Food Cleanse rather than a full on fast as I thought it would be must easier to transition back to "normal".

My preparation (which I have started) is to eliminate all of the following:  carbs/sugars/alcohol/coffee/dairy/fish/meat/poultry, so basically everything except raw fruit and vegetables, which as you can imagine is very hard to do seem as its so cold at the moment.  But I am managing quite well.  I have to be totally raw for four days before I start - but I will go raw on Monday so it will be 8 days out - Wish Me Luck!!!!!!

I will blog on a daily basis so you can see how I'm progressing.  I'm hoping to come home with a wealth of knowledge and to be feeling even more fantastic than I do now.

Today I'm linking up with Grace from "With Some Grace"
