Living an unhealthy lifestyle filled with high levels of sugar, alcohol, abuse or the intake of toxin-filled foods can have devastating effects on the body. For example, when toxins and waste accumulate in our colons, it leads to a host of undesirable conditions that extend beyond the digestive system and could eventually turn into serious illness.
Take a good hard look at how you’re feeling lately. Are you feeling run down and sluggish, or suffering from gassiness, bloating, weight gain, skin abnormalities or the inability to deal with stress? If so, this could be the ideal time for a body cleanse, which will clean out the accumulation of toxins, add natural energy and offer a host of other desirable conditions, suitable for a healthy lifestyle.
To make it easy on you, I’ve put together a list of my top tips to cleanse your body, clear your mind and help you relieve stress this holiday season.
Start sweating! You heard me, I said sweat! Your skin is the largest organ of your body so get on it by sweating out those toxins! Weather you choose to hit the gym or hop in the sauna, it’s all about getting your sweat on!
Detox the negative Nancy’s and Pessimistic Pauls out of your life! When I take my clients through a detox, it doesn’t stop with the body, it starts in the mind! So nix the people who are bringing you down in your life! I call this the “no contact” rule! Just let them go completely, no phone, no texts, no checking out their Facebook wall or Twitter account, just say goodbye & for good!
Now that we have my top 3 tips under our belts lets move on to some juicy raw-licous juice recipes shall we? These recipes are designed to make your skin glow, cleanse your liver and blood, remedy water retention and aid in digestion. They are great to have once or twice per day while still enjoying your favorite holiday foods!
Green Goddess Elixir:
8 pieces of flat leaf kale
1 medium beet
1 green apple
1 small piece of burdock root
6 stalks of celery
Love my Liver Juice:
1 medium beet
Handful of parsley
1/2 cup of pomegranate seeds
5 stalks of celery
Both of these juices will detox your liver, clean your blood and clear up any skin issues you may have! Celery is a great digestive aid as well and it’s full of natural sodium that your body needs! DRINK UP!

Blue Skies to you....my name is Kathy Babcock I have been in the fitness industry for over 25 years....wow....I am old....which brings me to my next thought...We can Feel, Fantastic, Fit, Fulfilled, and Free at any age.....So here goes 50+ for me and my new decade where I will continue to strive to live by the idea we truly can Feel Fantastic, Fit, Fulfilled and Free at any age if we take small steps consistently to treat our bodies like a temple and remember that it is the only place we have to live in....why not REALLY LIVE! If I can motivate any of my Corporate Groups, Private Pilates Clients, Women's Groups and Youth Groups to Value their 'Wellness', Love Others with an open heart, See their Worth and to 'REFUSE TO LIVE AN UN-LIVED LIFE'. I believe that if I can leave a client, group or loved one 'BETTER THAN I FIND THEM'....then my work is done! 'Health and Love...Jewels of Life' ...
