Day 3 and doing much better

Ok so I'm not so sure why 3 or 4 days makes a difference but evidently it does.  What is it about 3 days that gets you over the hump?  I woke up this morning not really hungry but still a little cranky and inpatient.  I think I am more inpatient with myself though because I slept until 11:00am./  Which I hate and is totally not like me.  I hope the day today brings me good success!!!

6:00 On a Holiday 2nd day in and truly struggling

You know I guess who knows me better than I know myself.  There is a reason that I forced myself into a situation where I didn't have a choice but to do the cleanse.  If I had money or means right now I would probably cheat.  Addiction is what it is but this is journey is truly giving me an opportunity to get in check with myself.  I want to live!  End of Story!

I want to have a great rest of my life.  I live to eat instead of eating to live.  My addiction has truly completely taking over my life and I hate it.  I'm so glad that I don't have the capability to be out in the world because if I did there would be no way I would still be on this journey.

This is way harder than Atkins ever was.  At least with Atkins I could eat food.  It's only been two days and I'm so want to give up.  But I can't.  I just simply can't.  I have to be strong not only for myself but my family.  I know at this point I'm totally rambling but it is the only thing that is keeping my mind off of the detox.  I feel as if I'm in mourning.  Mourning of a best friend - food.  Food and I have a really bad and unhealthy relationship.  I just hope I can beat it this time.

Day #2 and cranky

Well today is Day 2 and I'm super cranky this morning.  Obviously this cleanse is having a different affect on my husband.  He seems bubbly and happy.  I'm on the other hand cranky and pissed off.  The funny thing is I don't even know if it is about me being hungry necessarily.  I think I have depended on food for so long to make me happy (definitely a reflection of the addiction) that now without it I'm not exactly sure how to act.  lol!!!  I know that what I'm doing is going to better for me in the long run.   I just wish there was an easier way to do it.

I drank my tea last night and it was the most disgusting tasting thing I have ever had.  But it eventually grew on me to the point of where I was able to finish it.

I just have to keep my eye on the ball.  I can do this I know I can do this!!!

Stay Fit with this Nutritious Mean Green Juice Recipe | Williams-Sonoma

I can't wait to start juicing.  June 10th is our D-Day!!  We are going through our cleanse for now.  I know that this is going to be the hardest thing we have ever done.  But my goodness the results that we will get on the other side of this is going to be amazing.

Is a 60 day Reboot right for me? - Reboot FAQ

I love it this is exactly what my husband I have done.  My daughter is gone to California for the summer.  So once we have done our cleanse we will begin the juicing and we are so looking forward to it.  We have nothing going on except work and we work at home so this is perfect.  Locked in our house while we are juicin

Day #1 Before the juicing begins it's all about the cleanse

So before we begin juicing we have decided to cleanse our bodies.  So that the nutrients we take in will really have an affect on our bodies.

Day #1 to the lemonade cleanse and actually so far so good.  Along with the cleanse I am also doing a sea salt water flush which according to the Lemonade Site is supposed to "wash out the intestinal track".  I know that seems totally gross but when you have done as much damage to your body as I have you know deep down inside it is definitely needed.

I'm now on Day 1 of the cleanse and so far so good.  According the the Lemonade Site by Day Four it should present a large boost of energy which I am totally excited about experiencing.   Day #1 is here and almost closing and so far so good!!!  Day 2 here I come!!!

Another Journey

Well I promised my husband that if we were not successful with Atkins this last time that we could try whatever he try.  He has chosen to do the Juicing.  I'm actually pretty excited about this whole journey we are about to go on because it kind of intersects with the future life I want to live.  My heart leads me to a lifestyle of country living.  I want a garden, and I want to raise chickens.  So this lifestyle of juicing and only eating fruits and vegetables is super cool

Now most people would call that becoming a vegetarian but I refuse to place a label on what I am going to attempt to become.  I love seafood, I love chicken, I even love some beef.  But it's funny I am realizing as I'm getting older that I simply do not have a desire for meat the way I used to, especially pork.

So for the summer we are going to become juice aholics I guess.  We are going to attempt use the same approach as Joe Cross from Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead.
