Juice Cleanse Day 3


I lost almost down 5 lbs. as of this morning. I feel like I can do it. Just one more damn juice and then go to sleep and it'll be Christmas. I may set my alarm at 5 or something just so I can have some cereal. Oh, and believe me, I am well aware of how crazy this all seems. I have been dreaming about food... cucumbers and Christmas cookie bars. Apparently there's nothing in between really good food and really bad food in my dreams.

While I feel great and don't really have a headache right now, I am a little nervous about what will happen once I start eating again. Will I get sick? Will I pack on these 5 lbs. in one day? Will I be as hungry? I have no idea... some people say you're supposed to ease yourself back into food. Um, I definitely want a nice big salad tomorrow with lots of crunch, but I'm not eating vegetables all day. There will be chicken. By God, there will be chicken. And croutons. Sweet Jesus, the croutons.

Barring I get through tonight, I will be very glad I did this. I will be especially proud, considering I did this cleanse during an episode of Pass-Megan-Sweets. Challenge accepted, and challenge (almost) won. Supposedly I can control what I eat, and that is an outstanding lesson. I didn't think I had the will power. Now, let's be clear... it's not like I ran a race or anything. But cleansing for 3 days counts for something in my book, and that's what matters.

Juice Cleanse Day 2

I am sooooooooo freaking hungry. And thirsty. And I have a headache.

I am definitely glad I'm doing this, and I only have 1 more day, thank God. Fortunately, Mac and Ashley are feeling similar to me. It definitely makes it easier to do a cleanse with other people.

I lost 3 pounds as of this morning, but I'm pretty sure that's because I have so much I can lose.

My stomach feels good and basically, not full. It's crazy how it's not really growling, but I'm still hungry. In fact, I've been dreaming about food. Seriously, this is crazy. Why would someone do this to themselves?

I don't know. I don't know all the benefits of cleansing or juicing, but I do appreciate the challenge. I am already looking forward to just being able to say, "I did it." Sure, it's only three days. Sure, people probably do this kind of stuff all the time, but for me to actually commit to something and hopefully complete it is a big thing.

I also made it through Target and the grocery store today without buying anything except juicing items. Success.
