juice cleanse, day 2

good morning to all you lovely people who ate breakfast this morning. i hope you had super sugary, super chocolatey donut for me. we are on day 2 of this juice cleanse/detox/whatever we are doing...its only for 2 days so the end is near!!

im usually game to try just about anything, even more so when it challenges me physically. this juice idea is something the three of us had been thinking of doing and its definitely/infinitely easier when coworkers are in cahoots with you.

what i am noticing the most on this cleanse is just how much i miss the act of chewing. i dont feel hungry, per se, just light. ive been munching on celery during the day and at dinner and chewing a few pieces of gum to keep my mouth busy but thats it.

i skipped coffee yesterday COMPLETELY. that wasnt cool. i had tea instead which really sucked...no idea why, but i hate the taste of hot tea. today i am drinking coffee. i am going to drink coffee going forward so i figure it was kinda cool to skip a day but its fine to start again. the world thanks me :)

i noticed i felt a bit loopy yesterday. we all had that feeling of being high...were told thats normal. makes sense...technically were hungry so our bodies are reacting. each day gives us 5 juices....i wish i liked them all, but i just dont. yesterday i drank about 3 of them (maybe slightly less). I could only stomach about 1/5 of the beet juice flavored one and none of the kale one. i drank about 2/3 of the blueberry one but once it started to come to room temp i was over it. i drank 2 of the orange juices yesterday...AMAZING!

i started today with my last orange juice one...orange, grapefruit and lemongrass. DELICIOUS! my second juice today is a mix of swss chard, kale, dandelion, celery, cucumber, etc...its SUPER GREEN! i dont love it but i do know its good for me. and quite frankly, i need some sustenance so ill down it :) cant lie though, im downing some more coffee later to fuel run club tonight!

thats it for now...the juice recap will come tomorrow!
