Today I start my 3 day juice cleanse. They have a set of six juices that they suggest doing in a certain order. You drink six a day and a bottle of water between each one. Lemon ginger honey isn't part of the cleanse :(
Here are some reasons I decided to go for this:
- I watched Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead probably over a year ago and I've been intending to buy a juicer so I could do a juice cleanse at home. Since I fail at buying a juicer, this seemed easier.
- Instead of getting closer to my pre-pregnancy weight I'm actually starting to gain weight. This should put a big giant halt to that!
- I had a chinook book coupon that got me 3 days for the price of 2. They also threw in an industry discount (I think..?) because it ended up being way cheaper than a juicer!
- I just want to feel better.
I've decided this is a rare enough occurrence for me that it would be worth blogging about in more detail, so I shall likely write a couple posts a day. This is what the experience has been so far today:
I picked up my box this morning and headed over to the pool for Charlotte's swimming lesson. I drank the Romaine, Collard Green, Cilantro, Cucumber, Lemon, Ginger. I'm pretty good at convincing myself to like things when it comes to food. This took some extra mental conditioning. I chalk it up to the fact that I'm completely addicted to sugar and this has none. I drank half before the class and half after.
On my way home from class I kept thinking of all of the places I could stop to grab some food on my way home and found myself craving beans. My next juice is the Apple, Beet, Carrot. I put all of the bottles in order in my fridge so it would be easy to keep track. Now I have to go teach a voice lesson at the high school with Charlotte. It should be interesting to see how the rest of the day goes without any solid food. I'm not hungry but I feel compulsion to eat.
