A day in the life of the cleanse…


First of all, the cleanse is a cellular cleanse–ridding cells of toxins. NOT an intestinal cleanse-so no worries! It is a nutritionally supported fast–meaning, you keep your blood sugar stabilized while your body works its magic. 

So this is what the day looks like for me…

After a shake for the last meal of the day the night before, we wake up and drink our “bullet proof” coffee. Essentially coffee, butter, and coconut oil.  This is our routine–not part of the system.

I usually plan my cleanse days on days I am very busy. So yesterday I worked and taught a class in the evening. It works so well for me and is easy to incorporate into a work day, a day on the road, a day in class…whatever! It is just that simple. 

So from the coffee pot on, something is always going in my mouth.

The other thing that I love, is that I do what works into my own personal schedule–making sure to keep components constant. Regardless of what my day looks like, one thing is always the same. 

Cleanse for life -which I drink 4 ounces of at 8:00, noon, 4:00, and before bed. A drink full of goodness. Take a look…

In between the cleanses are snacks in which you have choices. I choose to do 2-3 Whey Thins, hot tea, Isadelights (a nutritionally packed chocolate bar), and lots and lots of water. 

There are also options  between a one and two day cleanse which is completely up to you in what works with your life at that time.  Lots and lots of information and ways to do it–I prefer the two day cleanse. 

At the end of the cleanse (the evening of the second day or morning after the first day) you get a shake. And it is the best shake you’ll have all week! And you’ll be full. 

That’s what it looks like for me. And I have more energy during cleanses than I do at any other time. It is the best. And to think I actually look forward to them? I really do. You just feel like a million bucks!

I am happy to answer questions if you’re interested in nutritional cleansing.

Ready for a cleanse!


We just came off of a fun week of Spring Break! And by fun, I mean lots of eating! 

Pair that with March Madness and watching lots of basketball…well, you know you have to have fun game food when you’re watching. And celebration when the KU Jayhawks go into the Sweet 16 after a 20 point spread victory. 

I am beyond thankful for a nutritional cleansing system that resets my body. It is not a “go eat whatever you want because I’m going to cleanse” type of system, but rather a tool to keep you on track and more than anything,  by continuing to drink shakes (which travel awesome) I know that my body is getting the best nutrition it can get. Even if I go eat a burger and fries at Rodeo Goat in Dallas. (Sounds gross–but it is an amazing little joint!)

Steve and I are cleansing together today and tomorrow. It’s awesome to do together because we keep each other on track and held accountable. I can honestly say I have been looking forward to my cleanses the last few months mostly because of how amazing I feel after they are completed. 

Tomorrow I will give you a little sample of what our double cleansing days entail if you’re interested. So check back!

The “Why” behind the “How”


I’m not excited to share publicly some of my videos, because honestly? I sound kind of ridiculous. But, I did document my Isagenix journey in the beginning before my life went just a tad bit crazy with the start of school and start of the crazy 6 schedules we try to keep. 

Thank you to all who have inquired about this lifestyle. I am more than happy to share the good, the bad, and the ugly of my journey. I’m pretty real! Just contact me and I’ll send you my initial video which introduces you to me and the program. (I was driving to work, so it’s kind of obnoxious since I’m mostly looking at the road) 😉

Nutritional Cleansing


I’ve been fighting with myself whether to share this or not. I don’t want people to be bombarded with this by me, but able to read if interested–so what better way than to bring it through a blog post!

My latest posts have centered around a time in my life where big changes were happening. Accepting a new position at the hospital, saying goodbye to Mary & Martha, and a possible diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis, which  has lead me to a new lifestyle of nutritional cleansing. 

This is where it began for me. As I was faced with a suspected diagnosis, I wanted to do everything in my power to keep myself as healthy as possible. Upon further research, becoming nutritionally sound was important–as it is for all of us. Making sure I do not allow myself to get over-tired which may exacerbate symptoms in addition. God had set me up for all of this, as my overnight shifts at the hospital would now be very few and far between. So good for my health–but my soul definitely misses my fellow nightshifters! 

Through Mary & Martha, I met a very precious friend. She had started posting about nutritional cleansing.  I pretty much sat back and watched as she continued this new lifestyle for quite a few months. Finally, I made the call last July and after talking with her, made the decision to give it a try.

I have a lingering fear of pushing anything on anyone, but know that I absolutely LOVE to share when I’ve found something I am passionate about. So instead of keeping this to myself as I have done for the last 7 months, I have felt strongly I need to be upfront with my love for the Isagenix products and what they’ve done for me. 

I believe the nutrition and mechanisms of nutritional cleansing have huge benefits. I did not begin this program with weight loss as my biggest motivator, however I did become more comfortable in my clothes as inches melted away. My biggest motivator was my health. And I’m not sure I’ve ever felt better physically. Granted, lifestyle changes in my work schedule have helped, but my energy level has been noticeable. I sleep better than I ever have and wake up rested. After 7 months, I know I can attribute it to this nutritional cleansing lifestyle.

I wasn’t going to share, but I just can’t help it. If you are interested in learning more, I’d love to share. I’ve made videos of my journey. I’ve taken pictures of before and after. Things I am willing to share if you think it may help you. 

This week is a huge promo and it just felt like the time was right. Thank you Leslie for introducing me to the healthiest me!
