Post Cleanse

What a glorious day!!  I woke up at 5am I was so excited and then fell back asleep until around 7. Surprisingly, I was a bit apprehensive about eating. I thought it might be good to just have oatmeal instead of eggs, but was still craving something salty. I decided to go down and check out the sauna for a last bit of detox. It was actually big and nice in there.  I will have to go more often! 

Half asleep still
 I am not sure what I am more surprised about: that I managed to do the cleanse, or that I went 4 days without washing my hair.. It was starting to look pretty dire.

The sauna has different hours for ladies and gents-
 my building is old school like that
I then went back upstairs to wash my hair and eat some real food.

This was my amazing breakfast- 420 calories-  almost half my daily intake on the cleanse. It was well worth it. 

I should probably clean up this mess- I was starting to drown in empty juice bottles and herbal tea mugs
People have been asking me how I feel and if the cleanse did anything. I think it is too early to say. I felt fine during the 3 days. I probably would have gotten more and more used to it and had increased energy if I continued for longer. I would not recommend doing a cleanse if you are doing a lot of exercise. In that regard, the timing worked out well for me.

I am down 6 pounds from before the cleanse. That seems like a lot for 3 days but I will probably gain half back just from eating again.  I just hope it motivates me to continue to eat healthy and to include an abundance of veggies and fruits in my diet.  I figure my body is full of nutrients from at least 27 kilos of veggies and fruits.. that must be good for something.My skin does look clearer and feels softer.

In some ways it was harder than expected and in some it was easier. It was definitely a challenge and an opportunity to test my determination. Thanks to Stu for obliging my crazy idea and joining me on this hilarious adventure.

I would definitely recommend Urban Juice Press to anyone looking to do a juice cleanse, or even just to try out try out their juices.  They were so helpful and encouraging throughout!

Thanks to all of you for all the encouragement! I couldn't have made it through these 3 days without you.
