9/28/13- Paula's Eating/Exercise Journal: Tuesday

As you all know, I just returned from a vacation cruise with my husband.  I missed my children a lot, but time away with your significant other is invaluable.  I met some great people, and heard some great life stories.

We did a spa treatment together that was called a ‘detox treatment’. I like to do different treatments (as long as they aren’t dangerous) to see what’s out there.

The concept dealt with detoxifying your system with blue and brown algae, following up with organic foods, clean eating, and exercise.  Sound interesting.  Then…came the bill!  To ‘cleanse’ my system would require 6 weeks of follow up algae treatments.  For my husband, it would require 8 to 10 weeks of treatment.  The bill for this long-term cleansing was about $4000.  Hmmmmmm.  I don’t think so. 

This is where my logical mind kicks in. Yes! Eating totally organic is best for my family.  Reality!  Accomplishing a totally organic home is extremely expensive and quite difficult.  That means organic fruit, vegetables, dairy, and meats when available.  But, it would also mean jellies, peanut butter, oils, flour… with 5 kids and a new marriage and home, a blog, cleaning and laundry for all those people….you get the picture.  My point?  Make an effort to eat clean and implement organic with as many food groups as you can.  But, you can’t create an environment that causes you more personal stress, than eating the totally organic foods would bring you benefit!
