I have lost 25 lbs over the past year, which was a goal I had been working toward my entire life since I can remember. It took a number of methods, but mostly diet (zero alcohol, very little dairy, sugar and gluten) and exercise. Recently though, I had been slacking off eating sweets and bbq too often! I needed to get back on track so I decided to try something new… a juice cleanse!
Food is something I consider medicine. I know it cures and causes disease, yet I have been so lax with it my entire life. I love feeling good and energized and I feel better than ever when I eat well. This cleanse was something I’ve always wanted to try, but always chickened out. I finally thought, it’s veggies and fruit juice which is full of nutrition! Nutrition=medicine and I need healing and energy so I’m trying this and we will see what happens to my body!
I started this cleanse with 2 of my best friends. I was pretty cocky going into it. I didn’t even consider that I would fail. There are 8 juices per day that are numbered to drink in order. If I felt the need to eat I could snack on unsalted nuts or lean protein. I didn’t have unsalted nuts or lean protein on hand because I was so excited about drinking 6 of these yummy juices (I LOVE their juices) I honestly didn’t think I’d need anything else. I was READY for this. I had my mind right. Wrong. I got through the day and after my 4th juice I fell off and ate 5 chocolate chip cookies and 2 tacos. I was pretty mad at myself. I texted my girl friends and told them I was a failure. They were doing well and I couldn’t do it and I was just so hungry I fell off the wagon. I went to bed feeling bad about myself but decided I would start fresh the following day.
(Probably shouldn’t have had that chicken fried chicken the night before my cleanse 😂)
I was determined not to screw this day up because I knew I was going to blog about this and I was already so embarrassed about my taco debacle. I drank all 6 juices! I drank the recommended water and I had A LOT of unsalted nuts as snacks and chicken on a side salad twice. It wasn’t easy but I did it and I was proud! I made it!
I drank my juices like A BOSS. I needed ZERO snacks. I had to MAKE myself finish my last juice I wasn’t even starving for it. I had so much energy I went to the gym, I organized my salon and I had more energy at the end of the day for my kids. It really was unreal. I couldn’t believe it. I also used the bathroom about 6 times. I never had a stomach ache though! I really was cleansing for sure!!!
My cleanse was over! First thing that morning I weighed myself, down 7 lbs! Whhhhhhat?!!!!! Incredible. I still had energy and I felt so incredible that I wished Clean Juice was closer so I could go buy more because I wanted to keep going. I worried if I started eating my normal “easy to grab” things I’d feel sluggish again. I highly recommend this for anyone wanting to jumpstart their healthy diet or goals, or even if you just need an energy boost!
