reflecting on your physical progress
Day 81, only ten days left. Today let's just take a moment to reflect on our progress so far. How's your body feeling? We call this a mindful audit of your body - draw your attention to your heart and your lungs, think about your breathing and how shallow or deep it is. Move from your heart and lungs to your fascia and connective tissue, does it feel loose and fluid or tight and achey. Think about your joints, your knees, shoulders, wrists, hips, elbows - is your mobility better than before. How about your muscles, do they feel more solid, more engaged, maybe a little sore? It's important to check in on our body this way from time to time. Not only is it important to recognize areas that may need some TLC (ice, heat, massage, stretch, etc.) but it's also important to recognize your progress, not matter how small or big that may be.
Your Exercises For Today
Liquid diets have become something of a fad in recent years for successful weight loss. They are often used as an early stage technique in a longer weight loss program and can be useful in that sense. However, liquid diets that only allow you to drink certain juices, teas or other beverages are not good long-term weight loss strategies. Solid foods contain many necessary nutrients and therefore it is not recommended to stay on a diet consisting of liquids alone in the long term. This may, however, be a viable option for a day or two during the week or month if it is an easier way to manage lower calorie intake.
