Day two down. Today was hard. Very hard. I didn’t work today and I think I had more temptation at home than I did cooking food at work the previous day!
I woke up and had my morning drink of hot water, lemon, and ginger. While I was drinking that, I made my morning juice. I put three carrots, two apples, and a little piece of ginger. I really enjoyed this drink, compared to yesterday. I was able to put the right amount of ginger in it and make it taste good. I also made the second juice while I had everything out. I just put it in to the refrigerator until I needed it. This one was also better than yesterdays.
At lunch time I made the third juice. The one that tastes like straight up cold tomato soup. I could deal with it, but this one makes so much juice that I saved half this juice for my dinner juice. I also made the fourth juice at this time too, and I was able to tweak it to make it taste a little better than yesterday.
And like I said, for the fifth juice of the day I used half of the lunchtime juice I made. I just couldn’t bring myself to make the one with beets and sweet potatoes. Just the thought of it was making my gag, so I just did what I had to do to complete this day.
For my dinner, I made carrots and sweet potatoes in the oven again. These really are delicious and almost tastes like a treat. I also had a salad with kale, avocado ,carrots, tomato, and cucumbers. I had a banana for dessert again. This really helped fill me up and satisfy my hunger for the rest of the night.
I have to say I’m very proud of myself for accomplishing this for at least two days. I could have easily given up, but I told myself that I was going to do this for three days and I will.
My body does feels great. I do feel more energized during the day, and again, my body just feels tighter and a little lighter. It makes me feel good. However, at 8 o’clock I sat down on the couch to watch a television show and feel asleep right away. This happened the night before, too. Its kind of strange, I feel completely energized throughout the day, but the moment I sit down to relax, I’m out like a light and cannot force myself to wake up.
I also weighed myself in the morning and I’ve lost a total of 3.5 pounds since I started this juice cleanse.
One more day. I can do this.
