Detox Day 18: RISE

Morning Friends,

Finally I woke up this morning with my normal energy level. I was in bed at 7:40pm last night and so excited to be there! I have received a few of your emails for the 3 things you are going to change after this cleanse. I am waiting for the rest of you. If you can not think of 3, give me one thing you are going to change.

As you know, diets do not work, but lifestyle changes do. In Stephen Arterburn’s Book, Lose it For Life, he shares an acronym to help us to take action to create a regular habit. It’s called RISE: Reduce, Increase, Substitute and Eliminate. He recommends this as an action formula for each area we need to change. Some days I feel like give me chocolate or nothing else will do. Now, I can reduce the amount, increase the quality to raw chocolate, substitute it to cacao nibs or simply eliminate it. Certain days of the month, I can eliminate chocolate, but today a nice cup of hot cacao powder and water does the trick. It’s healthy, high in antioxidants and no sugar! Bam! It’s a great substitute without going crazy and feeling deprived.

I hope you are excited about all the healthy options out there! Without all the genetically modified foods, preservatives and additives that are lethal to your body. Shop your local health food store and find substitutions for your favorite foods and even your body care products. It doesn’t have to be expensive either, shop around and you will find the best prices or even things on sale. You and your family are worth it!

“God loves you just the way you are, but He refuses to leave you that way”, Max Lucado.

Let’s RISE to the challenge and make ourselves better from the inside out! We were called to take great care of our bodies, like the temple or house. I heard this my whole life, but I didn’t make the shift until I had a health opportunity. Don’t wait until you have a health opportunity. Make the changes now and prevent any health issues you can.

Can I pray for you?

Heavenly Father,

Thank you for my friend joining us on our Detox journey. I pray that you would help us rise to changes you have whispered to us in our hearts. Help us to make lifestyle changes that will only glorify you and our bodies. Lord, you have given us life, hope, and a faith to conquer anything we desire. I pray that you show my friends, what they need to do to conquer any challenges they may have. We give you this day. In Jesus name, Amen.

God Bless,

Dr. Angie
