Fitness Fridays | Detoxing My Way Back!

Well well well, it's time for another Fitness Friday post! On last week I celebrated my 26th birthday (woop woop!) and thoroughly enjoyed myself including indulging in some deliciously unhealthy food! I knew that with my birthday week coming up my clean eating would wane. Well the birthday celebration is over and it's time for me to get back on track. While enjoying a lovely pinning session on Pinterest (Click Here to follow me!) I discovered various detox water recipes. I thought to myself what better way to get back on track than with a detoxifying drink to help rid my body of all of the yucky stuff I've been consuming lately.

I decided to try a recipe that includes readily available ingredients (i.e. I can get it from walmart). The recipe that seemed the most simple to me is the Lemon/Lime/cucumber recipe. Basically you get yourself a pitcher, fill it with water, slice up the ingredients, and let it steep over night. Sounds simple right? Here are some of the benefits of this easy detox water:
  • Lemon and/or Lime juice helps to stimulate and regulate the digestive track. It also helps boost your immune system while cleansing the body
  • Cucumber is excellent for rehydration and also contains anti-inflammatory properties
While this isn't the tastiest thing in the world it has such great benefits until I don't mind!
