Getting the crap out

I’ve fallen off the wagon and gained about ten pounds in the last couple of months.

It sucks.

It sucks even more because I have Trinidad Carnival in less than two months and I based my costume for Trinidad Carnival on the measurements that I was before I gained back all the weight.

So as of tomorrow I get tough on myself.

I am going on a juice cleanse for 10 days.

It’s a fast to get the toxins out of me and to kick start my metabolism.  I am going to start working out hard again.*

I am starting it tomorrow because I am off work until January 2nd.  Starting a cleanse on Saturday lets me get the majority of the cleanse over and done with before I go back to work.  As much as I despise work, I think I would despise it even more if I was living off various juices and not able to partake in any of the inevitable goodies that people will bring in from over the holidays.

To be perfectly honest, I am terrified of this fast.  I know it is going to be hard.  I know that I am going to want to cheat.  I know that there are days when I am not going to want to work out but I have to make myself do this.  Also, if I cheat my body will rebel against me.  According to everything that I have read and seen on You Tube, you have to be dedicated to this fast.  You have to want it and not cheat even the teeniest bit or else the physical pain from cheating is extreme.

This is going to be way harder than anything else that I have ever done.

But I am going to do it.

*that means I will be doing Insanity at night and Asylum in the mornings.
