Update: I’m doing another 3 day starting 6/26. I’m actually very excited about it. Since this cleanse I’ve gotten very into juices, and I’ve found that I missed them! I even ended up purchasing several in between. 🙂 So we’ll see how round 2 goes!
Well with no celery and more variety of juices, there isn’t much to say about Day 2. The juices were fine; it was me who wasn’t.
I cheated again with the crystallized ginger and handful of pistachios, and then had a bag of frozen peas (cooked of course). Sigh. Around lunch time I just really wanted to eat FOOD! I then ended up in a funk about how much weight I’d gained over the past few years, but decided that I was going to don a bathing suit and go to the pool to get some sun ANYWAY. That was all fine until a gang of kids came and started making comments about “the lady’s bootie”. Fortunately I was enthralled with Bruce H. Lipton’s Biology of Belief and was able to ignore most of it before I left at my usual time.
I tried to do some exercise too–I decided to pull out my difficult Bar Method DVD because I didn’t make it to a class, but then I found I really couldn’t do much. I desperately need another chiropractic adjustment, so everything just feels off , and that has nothing to do with juice.
Overall I felt disappointed in myself, which led to old familiar feelings of hating my body. But as I rode to the Cedar Park Center to watch the Texas Stars get their butts whipped in game 6 of the AHL Western Conference Finals, I decided that I could spend those three hours beating myself up with automatic negative thoughts, or I could go and have fun. I decided on the latter.
It was somewhat more difficult than usual to smell things and not want all the nasty food stuffs there. One smell that stood out in particular for me was ketchup (which I never eat, weird!)
I slept mostly OK, but woke up to a nightmare about discovering that my juice was ground up body parts–likely due to a comment made yesterday by a yoga student’s husband, who said that in the 60s or 70s there was a movie like that, though I can’t find any reference to it.
More than yesterday, I am thinking this would be a good once-a-month “clean house” kind of thing. Although I will admit to getting excited about eating food. Honestly, what I really have been craving is a banana.
