So it began today. Well, really this evening. All day I ate only raw foods as part of the prep. I was supposed to be prepping all week but I was in Vegas so you can guess how that went. I went to Mother’s Market in Brea today and got the 16oz “liver cleanse” juice. Beets, apples, ginger yumminess. That kicked off my day right. But, I do admit it was the first time I started feeling nervous about this whole cleanse. My thoughts were made up of fears that I won’t have willpower, that I will give up, that I’ll be too hungry, etc. My imagination went wild as I watch Josh eat his Tempeh Bacon, Lettuce, Avocado, Tomato sandwich with a generously portioned side of lemon-quinoa (one of my favorites!). Boooo!
Later, at home, I juice up 32 oz of a green blend which included spinach, celery, zucchini, parsley, mint & lime. I added lemon, too, because it was pretty bitter. I liked the drink overall. I am letting myself be proud for also prepping my veggies to take to work tomorrow so I have enough for a recipe. I also pre-juiced my breakfast and left it in the fridge. I’m not sure if it’s ok to do that but I feel like the morning will be hard if I don’t. Then, I cleaned the juicer out and packed it up to take to work tomorrow. Laura and I plan to juice in the office! I wonder how she’s feeling tonight. I’m feeling a little bit more optimistic than earlier. I feel alert and awake. Josh and I rode our bikes around when it cooled off this evening then I took a hot shower and am now ready to relax until I fall asleep. Who knows what tomorrow may hold. I am supposed to go to the dog shelter early in the morning to see about adopting a puppy. I know the timing is probably bad but I can’t control that we found the cutest little pup today and he will be available tomorrow. It’s first-come first-serve so I plan to be there before they open at 10am. A puppy will throw my world into chaos but I want our Lulu to have a little pal. Maybe drastic change will actually be good this week – will keep me busy and focused.
Not gonna lie. Would have loved to have a cold beer tonight.
