I put food in quotes because I’ve been on a juice cleanse for the past three days!
It’s been a very easy going 3 days, to be honest. It’s been way too long since I’ve done one, and since going back to school my eating and drinking habits have gone to hell and I managed to find a few pounds I thought I lost a decade ago.
I decided that a reset was in order, and planned this fast for mid-week. I like weekdays vs weekends since you’re so busy at work and there are fewer food distractions. I had plenty of energy and, aside from the various juices, also had tons of water. I averaged 220 ounces of water per day.
I did a blend of juices I made myself and some I had shipped from Jus. All told, yummy and I feel wonderful! A friend in Kenya did it with me too! It was nice to have another soul doing this at the same time.
I’m considering migrating to a smoothie fast for 3 days to get a deeper reset. Well see, but will keep ya posted.
Speaking of smoothies, the whole fam is joining the #smoothieselfie movement!
Strenuous fitness while on a cleanse is a pretty poor idea. I hit up a lovely gentle/restorative class Wednesday night. Thursday was a bad day (not the cleanse – work), so I pretty much got through the day until I could go to bed! Today I went hiking at the state park with my youngest daughter and the pups. I physically feel fine, and by today I felt mentally better to.
Not going into too much here. Been a rough week, but you know what. They happen. And what matters is how you move forward, and that’s what I’m going to do. I will focus on the loves in my life (my husband and kids, friends, and school) and the rest is what it is.
Speaking of my studies. She’s back! Ginny, my #fluffystudybuddy
Of course we need other fun pics to wrap up the post!
