Prose for Thought – A Clearer, Brighter, New Me.

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!

    Perfect Victoria, I am in the same frame of mind as you & want to just feel better in myself with healthy eating.

    Oh I saw the juices on fb or instagram or something? GOOD LUCK! Summer is an ace time to start all this. Being hot makes me not want to eat so much anyway! xxx
