cleanse recap: day seven
plus! a giveaway.

on day seven i had been invited to a luncheon for military mothers & wives sponsored by a local radio station. it was going to be catered by a local italian place (that we love) and i knew it would be a pretty big temptation. but, it turned out to be okay. they had salad, roasted potatos, and sauteed zucchini and yellow squash that was all delicious.
this picture was taken (without permission) from the KIOA website. thanks, guys!

i had a single bite of chicken, but it was certainly not worth cheating on the cleanse for (no offense, barratta's), so i didn't eat any more. the big temptation that day actually turned out to be the mini cupcakes they had for dessert. (lemon ginger?! come on...that sounds totally healthy. wink!) but, i made it out of there without one.

that afternoon i stuck with the plan. i had a left-over smoothie for a late snack and when the girls and i went to a friends' house for dinner that night, i packed my own meal; veggie chili (again) but i spruced it up with avocado and these guys:

day 7 nutshell
breakfast - smoothie
lunch - veggies, salad, one bite of chicken, ha!
snack - leftover smoothie
dinner - veg. chili, avocado, nut chips
feeling: proud of myself!
fitness: umm...none. :/

i've been finished with the cleanse for over a week now.
after completing day seven, i decided i wanted to continue to incorporate a lot of these eating habits into my everyday life. i felt so good, i was hesitant to start piling the "junk" back into my body. in the days since then, i've continued to eat mostly gluten-free, dairy-free, and meat-free. (with a couple major exceptions during a girl's weekend to chicago! more on that later...) this 7-day cleanse did some incredible things for my body and mind. plus, i lost 4 pounds! (can't argue with that.)

i highly recommend doing this for yourself. lucky for you,

  1. Oh my gosh... I think I totally need this! I have loved following your cleanse but I feel like I need some one to force me to do it - this would do that for me! (plus, I would blog about the whole thing - is that considered bribery!?!?) :)

  2. Hi there! I have been reading your posts for a while now, and especially like the "wear" ones. This cleanse series has been intriguing for me since I try to have a healthy lifestyle, but am learning there is so much more I can do. Thanks for sharing, and thanks to Katie for being so generous with her knowledge. Blessings to you and your family. -D (adventurehood@gmail.com)

  12. Would love the cleanse! I've been enjoying your recaps of it. I also liked them on FB. :) meredithemeyer@gmail.com

  13. I'd love it!

  14. I live on the lake and work with a bunch of tiny teen staff girls and candy......enough said.

  15. Oh, I could really use this!! jordanfaeh@gmail.com

  16. This would be a great jump start to maintaining a healthy life-style! I've gone to the doctor to get blood work done to try to understand why i'm so tired all the time but all my blood work is normal. I would love to have the opportunity to try this out!


  17. Thank you for the opportunity! I followed your posts and kept asking myself: could I do the same?
    My email: ennica(AT)gmail(DOT)com
    Facebook follower as well: Ena H.

  18. I really enjoyed reading about your cleanse! I did one a few months ago and I felt so much better! I didn't loose but a few pounds but felt much thinner because I wasn't so bloated from all the junk food.

  19. Oh, this is so awesome! I've loved reading about your experience with the cleanse, and I'm so glad it worked so well for you! I would absolutely LOVE to get a chance to work with Katie, but being a recent colleg grad, it's not really in my budget :) I also 'liked' rooted wellbeing on Facebook (Mary Lange). Thanks to both you & Katie for hosting such an awesome giveaway!

  20. You've totally inspired me! Great to get some "reality" on a cleanse besides movie stars :)

  21. This will be a great addition to my summer wellness plan! Thank you for sharing your experience!

  22. Loving the regular updates Kelcbell(at)hotmail.com

  23. I am a high school teacher and I needed to be cleansed!!!!! I would love to kick off the summer on a healthy note and leave this unfortunately toxic year behind me. I'm ready for some changes and a rejuvenation. Cheers!

  24. I got on her website the other day. I am VERY interested in her plan, however I am pregnant and wasn't sure if I should wait to try (at least until I'm not feeling so nauseated). I should send her an email asking my various questions about the cleanse and pregnancy. PLUS I have celiac disease so this diet would be perfect for me since I am already gluten free!

  25. Would love to win this! sigma_veronica@hotmail.com

  26. I would love, love, love to win! Just what I need to kick my butt into gear!

  29. Considering I've been feeling frumpy lately, this sounds like just the thing I need! I can work out all I want- but it's the eating part I struggle with!

  30. Would love to win this!


  31. Sounds like a great way to start off the summer, and lord knows I could use it!! erinwood@hotmail.com
    Thanks! Erin

    WOOHOO!! fingers crossed. :)

  33. This seems like such a great idea! Now that its summer I am looking forward to snacking on more veggies!
    I would love to win!

  34. Oh I like Rooted Wellbeing on facebook too!

  35. Thank you so much for sharing your journey of the cleanse! I am very intrigued, and would love the opportunity to try it out!

  36. I liked Rooted Wellbeing on facebook!

  37. I have really enjoyed following your experience on the 7 day cleanse and commend you for sticking to the program. I recently found out my cholesterol is elevated and I would prefer to take a holistic approach to revamping my diet versus taking medication. I think the 7 day cleanse would be an excellent introduction to the lifestyle changes I need to make as well as provide the motivation to do the 4 week cleanse. I also like the fact Katie is there to help coach you thru those "911" moments. I love Katie's website and liked Rooted Wellbeing on facebook.

  38. I am totally on board to do this. I am pregnant right now but feel like I will need this at the end of my nine months :) mccabe414@hotmail.com

  39. I need this so very badly!

  40. Would love to receive this! I've always wanted to try! mnielsen120@gmail.com

  41. I could totally use a clenase to kick-start my summer workout routine! So glad I was able to read your encouraging and honest cleane re-caps to help encourage my raw food exploration.
    Woo hoo for giveaways!


  42. Okay, do I need to try this again and actually follow the directions to leave my email address! This would be a great addition to my summer wellness plan!


  43. i'd love to try it!

  44. I am always up for keeping "clean" :) thanks for doing this!

    "Thượng đế a… hắn là một người bạn rất to lớn của ta…, có cơ hội sẽ giới thiệu cho nàng biết" Lưu Phong không nghĩ là tại đây sẽ truyền giáo, tùy ý ứng phó vài câu, cũng không có vì Ân Tố Tố mà giải thích lại lịch thượng đế.

    "Rất to lớn… là ý gì"

    Bực à… cùng người cổ đại nói về cái này, trách sao không lao lực…

    Ân Nguyên Đạo nhận được tin nha hoàn báo lại, hai người đang ôm ấp ở phía sau hoa viên rừng cây

    "Ôm ấp?" còn không biết bọn chúng muốn làm gì nữa??? Âm Nguyên Đạo lo lắng, nha đầu Tố Tố không biết trúng phải ma pháp gì, trước thì sống chết cũng không chịu kết hôn, bây giờ thì ôm ấp, và với tốc độ tiến triển như vậy, thì đêm nay dám động phòng luôn quá…

    Không được, phải ngăn cản, đường đường là thiên kim của Tổng đốc phủ, nếu chưa lập gia đình mà mang thai thì con mặt mũi nào nữa, không chừng đến lúc đó phải trốn khỏi nhà…

    Trương Mỹ Nhân cũng ý thức được vấn đề nghiêm trọng, không nói đến chuyện chưa lập gia đình đã có thai, chỉ chuyện Lưu Phong nhiễm hoa liễu, không thể để cho bọn họ có phát sinh quan hệ. Nếu không, đến lúc Ân Tố Tố bệnh phát, chính mình sao trả lại công đạo cho Ân Nguyên Đạo. Huốn hồ còn có Ân quý phi ở trên...
