The new thing for me this February is doing a 2 week reset (actually it is really five weeks, but you really eat strictly 2 weeks). I signed up for Chris Kresser’s 14four program, and am now into to my second week of rebooting and resetting. The program addresses the four big factors of life: Diet, Stress, Exercise and Sleep. I did a bit of indulging over the holidays, as we can all tend to do, so I am taking this time to focus on my health inside and out.
Not that I booze it up every night, but I’ve been known to enjoy the cocktail hour every now and then. Sometimes you just need to tweak reality a little, to fool your brain into thinking it is NOT getting deprived. So in the evenings right about cocktail hour, my girls and I have been concocting the mocktail. We drink them in fancy wineglasses, and I have to say I don’t miss the alcohol…… (dark chocolate is another story).
I really recommend a reset it feels really good! It is fun to try some new recipes and to focus on the other important areas of our lives we tend to dismiss . I can’t speak well enough of Chris Kresser and his work, he is a functional medicine practitioner in California, and he is spot on in my book with his approach to wellness and healing. Check him out HERE you’ll be glad you did!
