I've had an analogy, that doesn't happen very often, but I look at my body similiar to my house. When I do spring cleaning, and I mean the type of cleaning where you move the fridge to clean behind it, I'm more likely to keep a routine so that I can keep it that way. I almost become fanatical, is that a word? I'm following behind my children picking up every little crumb. I am annoying, just ask my kids. When my house is messy, I just shrug it off and think, "What's the point? It will only be messy again tomorrow." I just tend to not take as much care of my home, as I do after I clean it from top to bottom, which is an entirely separate blog.

Ever since I can remember I have had a hard time having a bowel movement. I remember as a little girl hiding in the corner with my knees up to my chin rocking back and forth waiting for the urge to poop to pass, because it hurt so much when I would go. My mom took me to the Doctor and he told my mom that I will always have a problem, and that when I get married she would probably have to tell my husband to remind me when to take a sh*t. Trust me, this comment has haunted me my entire life. My husband got a big kick out of it, and now he carries on my mom's legacy of passing along that statement. My mom used to give me mineral oil on a daily basis, and would keep it in the fridge so it wouldn't taste so bad. So when I say I'm full of sh*t, I'm not joking.
I'm not nearly as plugged up as I used to be, but I promise you that I do not have 3 BMs a day, and No...my husband does not have to remind me when to take a sh*t. I'm lucky to have one a week. Anyways, I watched a video about your colon and that you could have 20 pounds of feces sitting in your colon, that's a lovely thought. I decided to look up colon cleanse, since I'm starting this new lifesyle change. I found Dr. Schulze's Intestinal Formula #1, which got really great reviews on Amazon. I headed to his website and a little tab that said "new customers" drew my attention. When I clicked on the tab it talked about his vitality program. It basically states that the Super Food Plus will blast your cells with nutrients to give you more energy, I need more energy. It removes toxins and waste by cleaning and strengthening your colon, my colon needs cleaning and strengthening. It strengthens your immune system to fight viruses, infections and disease, who doesn't want to have a strengthened immune system. Well, I fell for it hook, line and sinker. I received my package today and will start it tomorrow. It's a 30 day supply and it's not necessary to take forever, just until you start feeling better.
So, to go back to my analogy, I figure if I clean my house (body) and start ridding toxins, I will be more aware of what I put back into my body, and become fanatical about keeping it clean. So here's to starting the Vitality Program!
