I DID IT. I MADE IT. FIVE WHOLE DAYS ON NOTHING BUT JUICE.
When I started this cleanse, I didn’t really know what I was getting myself into. At first, I wasn’t doing it to lose any weight or anything like that. I had been getting sick a lot recently, and I just wanted to reboot my system and get back on track.
I had seen Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead almost a year ago, and it did inspire me to go on a juice fast for weight loss purposes, but a juicer has never been in my budget. I was so thankful to my Mom for purchasing me one for Christmas.
I wasn’t prepared for, nor did I expect, the significant change in my mood, body, and mind. I’m not even able to properly describe it. My mind has just been clearer, I haven’t been as lethargic and lazy, and my body just feels lighter.
I made my normal juices today. I woke up feeling amazing, no cravings all day. Today was definitely the best day out of the 5. Maybe because I know that it’s the last day? We’re supposed to get an ice/snow storm tonight, so right after I finished at work, I went to the grocery store and picked up a few things to eat tomorrow. That is so weird to say, I get to EAT tomorrow. It will be my first meal of 2014! I know that, coming off of the cleanse, you’re supposed to only eat things that would go into the juice. While I will do that, I also picked up some chicken breasts and tilapia fillets that I will be eating.
I’m hoping that this cleanse will be the boost I need to get my eating right and healthy back on track!
With all of that said, I am officially down 10 lbs since I started this juice cleanse on Wednesday. I plan on incorporating at least one juice into my every day routine, because they’re just damn good.
I did not think that I would be able to complete this, honestly. I had days that were great and days that weren’t so great, and I just wanted to drive my hungry ass to the nearest drive through. I’m so glad that I stuck it out, though. I am extremely proud of myself.
I can’t wait to see how good I continue to feel with the juices in my every day life.
Thank you to all who followed along with me with this cleanse and these recaps, I know that I haven’t been the best blogger in the world, and I appreciate all of you who read and commented on these recaps. :)
Here’s to a great new year!
