Welcome everyone to this week’s Prose for Thought and thank you to everyone who linked up last week. It was wonderful to see some new contributors and their poems.
Yesterday, I started a 5 day juice detox. To be honest, I am totally fed up with following diets. All I want to do is be healthy and make sure that I am putting the right food into my body (with the occasional treat!) so I have decided to hit the reset button. It isn’t easy by any means. I started feeling really hungry around 4pm (the time of day I always do) and rather fancied a cup of tea – although I am rather pleased that I haven’t been desperate for coffee as I have been weaning myself off the stuff over the last week in readiness! I must have drunk around 7 pints of water too – thankfully my office is right next to the bathroom.
When I finish on Sunday, I am ready to start a whole new meal planning service (details to follow together with a 30% discount code for my readers) to ensure that we all eat better. Plus, I have signed up to Graze boxes which I am really looking forward to.
Now you know what inspired today’s poem!
A Clearer, Brighter, New Me
Refresh, renew, a whole new you
Is what I’ve promised me
Far less junk, smaller portions
Let’s all eat healthily
I want my body to feel better
To step out of it’s tired frame
But if I carry on doing nothing
Each day will stay the same
I want this juicing to give me plenty
Health, vitality, better skin
Because if I continue in this vein
My body may just give in
And what about my mind and thinking
I want it so much clearer
Each day that this cleanse is done
I feel it getting nearer
So, it is only 5 days I tell myself
It’s worth all the lethargy
Because when it is all over and done
There’ll be a clearer, brighter, new me!
