After promising myself on January 1st (so cliché, huh?) that I would make this year about health I decided to do a month-long cleanse to kick it off. So far i’ve survived eight days with no sugar, gluten, dairy or alcohol. I thought I would be miserable but I actually feel pretty good! There’s only been one bad moment when I wanted something sweet and got very sad and very mad that I had agreed to do something sooooo ridiculous for a whole month. This was fixed by getting out of the house and going to a yoga class with Rachel. Breathing through those sticky moments seems to help.
Feeling excited by the fact that I feel so damn good I decided to take this whole health kick up a notch and order a three-day juice cleanse by Pressed Juicery– it arrives Saturday morning at 7am. Anyone can survive anything for three days, right? It’s just three days! Ok, I’m actually a little scared. The thing that frightens me the most is the no coffee thing. Ummmm, I don’t think I’ve ever gone without coffee. I’m hoping that all the packing we have to do this weekend will be a good distraction from the hunger and caffeine withdrawals. Brian said he was thinking about staying at a hotel for those three days to avoid me. He was totally kidding…I think.
Have any of you ever done a juice cleanse??? Any tips for this newbie???
