Only TWO days left till I embark on my November Cleanse and I couldn't feel more ready!
If you missed my post about the brilliance it will be - check it out here.
Today I want to write a Daily Goals list. Easy, accessible and realistic. I have zero desire to set up for failure... so all of these goals are nice, realistic and BENDABLE. If I can't do all these things in a day - no biggie.
Shove in the water. Should be easy enough! I love water.
And always make sure I drink a large amount first thing in the morning. Water before food helps with digestion and drinking it first thing wakes up your system and flushes out anything still lurking from the day before.
This is the big one for me. Hannah - SORT YOURSELF OUT! I want to aim for 8 hours a night, which never used to be an issue for me. But lately - it's been nearly impossible. November - this is my priority, even more so than food to be honest. I want to get enough sleep!
Things that will help with this are:
- Eating early (leaving at least 3 hours between food and sleep)
- Not watching TV/YouTube SHIT right before bed. Close the damn laptop!
- Get back into reading...
- Making my bedroom a sanctuary again... somewhere I want to be. I feel like a bit of a stranger in my flat at the moment because I'm there so rarely. I want to spend these last few days giving my bedroom some TLC and making it somewhere I want to lie for long periods of time!
3. Yoga and Movement
Not daily, of course. That's not realistic. But if I can do Yoga twice a week, I'll be really happy with that.
What I do want to do daily - is movement. Every morning when I wake up - spend about ten/fifteen minutes stretching and waking up my body.
This was an old habit that served me so well. Why do we stop doing things that make us happy? Oh, self sabotage...
I also have a beautiful bike now... so I have zero excuses to not move my butt.
4. Positive Inner Monologue
Yep - call the Lame Police - I'm talking about positive thoughts.
But honestly - they work! I want to put an end to all negative inner monologue this month, or at least as much as possible. I am preparing myself for a pretty epic come-down once I stop going to rehearsals every night and have all this free time - so I want to make sure I don't slip into any negative talk "what if I don't get another role?" "What am I doing with my life", "Why aren't I feeling amazing on this cleanse..?"
NO! My inner monologue will be the following:
"Life is so exciting... I am the luckiest person in the world.... Every day I feel better and better.... I wonder what my next big project will be..... Daniel Radcliffe is about to propose to me...."
5. Minimum 1 Raw Meal
As you may have read in the previous post - the goal for this is High Raw, but in a realistic world I want to say a MINIMUM of one raw meal a day.
Please Hannah, just at least have one raw meal. The goal is two, but minimum one.
See how good I used to be at this? Look at my amazing Beetroot "Pasta" from the last time I tried being a raw foodist? I made some good shiz.
6. Stick to my "No" List
That is: no COFFEE, no SOY, no GLUTEN.
I can do that. It actually excites me. I genuinely want to see how I feel... and I have a feeling it'll be positive!
I'm already a pretty good "Journaler", but I want to make sure I journal for a few minutes a day doing this to record how I'm feeling and what I'm eating.
Journalling is a great habit to get into. When I have some free time (ha!) one of my favorite things to do is pick a random old page of my journal and read it.
It's amazing how much we change in such short periods of time.
Here We Go!!
I think that is a very achievable list :) What do you think? Anything I should add?
Last TWO DAYS of Soy Mochas....
Have a good few days everyone! See you on the 1st when I'll post what I've eaten that day and how difficult my lack of caffeine is.
I'll keep my Instagram / Twitter and Facebook regularly updated - so if you want to see what I'm eating on my amazing cleanse - get following! It also makes me feel good about myself. ;)
Love and Sweet Potatoes!!
