All the Juicy Details: Day Three

No, I haven't changed my iPhone background since February. Hush.

6:45AM- Waking up feeling very rested.  I have a leeeeeeetle headache, but nothing major. It's the last day!!  Step on the scale -- down another .6 pounds. I'm not feeling "skinny" though -- which is really strange, because I usually feel "skinny" if I'm two hours late for lunch one day.  I think I know a reason for this, but it's kind of TMI (the next paragraph covers the TMI details, so skip it if you'd rather not know)

7:35AM- You kept reading after I warned you that it was TMI? Of course you did.  Sicko*.  Truth be told, I haven't, umm... expelled of any #2 waste since the cleanse started.  Well, that all changed around 7:35AM.  Man, I feel light as a feather.  Bee tee dubs, your waste tends to be the same color as your food.  So no, you're not dying from internal bleeding, you're just drinking beet juice.

8:00AM - Take the first sip of the Start Your Engine (Carrot, Grapefruit, Orange, Kale, Spinach, Parsley, Beet, Ginger & Cayenne).  It... it tastes good. I've grown to really like starting my morning with this juice.  I know, I know... I can hardly believe it myself.

9:15AM - That headache from this morning?  Yeah, still hasn't gone away.  It's not terrible, just lingering.  Plus, remember how I mentioned that my office was having breakfast this morning? Everyone around me is chowing down on grits, bacon, scrambled eggs and chocolate chip french toast.  They all assure me that it's really not that good.  I think they're big fat liars, but I appreciate the effort.

10:56AM- Okay, I can force myself through the Stamina (Carrot, Pineapple, Kiwi, Kale, Spinach, Parsely Cucumber & Celery) on my last day, right?  Wrong.  Trash time.  Notice that I didn't even attempt the Purple Powerhouse (Apple, Cabbage, Kale, Spinach, Parsley, Cucumber & Celery).

1:00PM- Okay, this is when things go a little crazy.  All of the sudden, this happened:

Yep.  You heard right.  I ate solid food.  I went to Whole Foods and got a Vietnamese spring roll (cucmber, carrot, and red pepper rolled into a rice paper wrap).  Want to know how much guilt I felt?  NONE. ZERO. I mean, it was all raw veggies.  The day I feel guilty for eating raw vegetables will be the same day that hell freezes over, Lilo is sober, and puppies stop being adorable.  IT WILL NEVER HAPPEN. And guess what?  My headache is gone. Imagine that.

3:07PM- Despite my brief indecretion, I don't plan on completely diving back into pizza and burgers.  I want to stick with the plan the rest of the day.  I open my last Filler Up (Apple, Pineapple, Kiwi, Orange, Lemon, Celery & Chia Seeds).  Man, I've grown to love this stuff.  I want to keep drinking it after the cleanse is over.  Really, who am I??

5:00PM- I haven't drank a single Salad Sipper (Carrot, Kale, Spinach, Parsley, Cucumber, Celery & Broccoli) during the cleanse so far, so why break tradition now?  I have a ton of energy right now, so I throw it into the trash with superhuman strength.  A slam dunk, if you will.

7:30PM- Home from work! Sweatpants, ponytail, chillin' with no makeup on.  Levi comes home with Pizza Hut (have you noticed a trend in Levi's eating habits?). Pizza Hut is my FAVORITE (I know, I'm a disgusting person).  When Levi orders pizza, he always gets Dominos or Papa Johns.  He swears the Hut had a sale, but I think he's being an evil person and proceed to yell at him for every little thing for the rest of the night.  Honestly, I probably am overreacting since the pizza isn't tempting me at all (victory!).  Don't tell him that, though. Let that be our little secret, k?

7:49PM- Savor every drop of my last Night Cap (Raw Almond Milk, Dates, Vanilla, Cinnamon, & Sea Salt).  I has a sad.  I don't want this to be my last Night Cap.  It's just so good!

10:43PM - Goodnight, world.  Tomorrow, we eat (again).

*It's okay, I don't blame you.  In my world, TMI stands for "Tell Me Immediately", not "Too Much Information". 

Today was definitely the best day.  My energy was high, and I felt good (especially after my spring roll).  I'm craving healthy food, and I cannot WAIT until tomrrow!  SOLIDS!!

Also, be sure to read my BFF Katie's experience with cleansing.  She was the maid of honor in my wedding, and she's just kind of awesome.  She's also new to the blog world, so go give her a big blogland welcome!!
