Some of you may have read over at Chris's blog about our 10 day juice cleanse. For some reason I let him talk me into starting it the day after getting back from BlogHer. This has it's ups and down sides. First of all, I'm exhausted from my weekend and my head is full (I promise, tomorrow will be something about my trip). Also, something the internets probably doesn't need to know, I start my period tomorrow. So, of course, I'm thinking that this has something to do with the 168 lbs reading on the scale this evening (I had been hanging out at around 163). This morning, I had a lovely juice of apples, lemon, kale, celery, carrots and something else I can't remember. Oh, wait. Watermelon. Any way, it was good and filling and then Chris and I made a bunch of green juice for me to take with me to work. All went really well until I ran out of juice some where around 3:30. Then, I was hungry. I kept thinking of this book I'm reading where a reluctant nun starves herself in order to see visions. At one point while riding in the elevator, I thought "now, this is the time of day I start my own vision quest". I had visions of crackers. Profound visions of crackers.
But really, for the most part I'm fine. Dinner tonight was a juice of onion, parsley, Romaine hearts, celery, tomatoes, broccoli, and garlic blended with avocado, Cayenne and black pepper. And it was tasty and I'm full. I think I'll have dessert juice later of pineapple and cantaloupe. Day one and not so bad. Only nine days left!
