Day 1 – Juice Cleanse (Take Two)

OK, I am officially calling day one of the juice cleanse over.

I survived.

I’m not really hungry but I am not full either.

I miss the act of eating itself.  And I think that will be my downfall.

Here’s my full recap of today:

I got up around 7am and the very first thing that I did was a water flush.  I had to drink a litre of water before I could begin any of my juices.  I did that this morning before I even took a shower.  Yesterday I did this after I had been awake for a couple of hours and I think that is what screwed me up for the majority of the day.  I was hungry when I did my flush and that carried through all day yesterday.

Today was different.  It made my slightly nauseous but it wasn’t as hard to do as yesterday.  Drinking all that water as soon as I got up made things easier.  I was able to distract myself by doing my regular morning routine and that was really helpful.  When it came time to have my first juice, it wasn’t too bad.  I made it spicy because when things are spicy, I tend to consume them better.  And then I went about my day.  I had my ever present juice cup with me for most of the day, even when I went out to run some errands with Beanz and the Ninja Princess.  I have to get used to taking my “food” with me whenever I go out.  Before all this I would just get something while we were out, if I was hungry.  I don’t have that option anymore.  I can’t buy anything.  I have to have my juice or nothing at all.

And the nothing at all really sucks.

After running some errands, we came home and I made dinner for everyone else* and another juice for me.  Then it was bed and bath time for the boys and that is where I stand right now.  At present I am chilly and have a slight headache but other than that I am OK.  I made a cup of herbal tea and I am hoping that will warm me up.  Also, I have had to potty a whole lot today, but that is to be expected because all I am consuming is liquids.  I don’t think that I am too cranky but I do feel off.  One thing that a lot of the blogs said was that I would be a lot more alert and full of energy on this cleanse.

I’m not.

I’m tired.  That’s nothing new though.  I tend to be tired a lot on most days.  I was hoping that I wouldn’t be as tired as I normally am.  Lastly, I tried to work out today but I wasn’t able to get a full workout in.  It has nothing to do with the cleanse though, the kids were awake when I tried to workout and they wouldn’t let me workout.  Tomorrow I am going to try and get a full workout in and see how I feel.

    I wish you werent doing this cleanse AND those damn workouts. You are going to hurt yourself. 🙁 Woudn’t Bernstein have been easier? Weight loss is almost as fast. Probably 3 to 3.5 weeks for 20lbs lost – but at least you can have food.

    Don’t workout, just worry about the cleanse, you won’t have the energy. hubby did the master cleanse for 7 days, for health reasons not weight loss, although he did lose a lot. It was hard, he said the first 3 days are the hardest. You don’t realize how much of your time involves food, so you have to find something else to keep your mind off of it.
