Master Cleanse – Day 1
Summary of cleanse: Drink lemonade made from lemons, maple syrup, cayenne pepper, and water. Eat nothing. Do this for a MINIMUM of 10 days, and all the way up to 40 days if you want.

Well… where do I begin?? The day didn’t start off too well. I woke up at 4am to drink my “salt water flush”. I gagged so many times. That was absolutely disgusting!! It consisted of 4 cups water and 2 level teaspoons Pink Himalayan Sea Salt. Ugh!! It took me 15 minutes to drink it and then I went back to bed to wait for it to “kick in” and clean me out… um… yeah... that did NOT happen.. lol... So I’m a little worried.

My lemonade got all messed up too. I started juicing my 1st ½ of a lemon, and didn’t want to do another 11 halves and I was running short on time. So… I just peeled the lemons, and threw them into my awesome blender ; )… that worked ok… until I actually had to drink it. The taste was fine (mixed with maple syrup and cayenne pepper). It took me about 4 hours to drink 10oz of the lemonade... but ONLY because of all the pulp that was in there kept making me gag. (I finally ended up straining it which made is so much more pleasant)

I was all set on starting the cleanse yesterday (Thursday, October 18, 2010). Which I did. I got to work, and right away people were like “oh, the employee break room is filled with doughnuts, fruits, juices, chocolate milk and so on”. I had 3 people come up and tell me that within minutes of me walking in the door. All of a sudden thoughts such as “oh, I don’t have to start today…. I’m not really THAT fat, I don’t really even have to do this”... it’s like I was trying to talk myself out of it. But thankfully I did not give in. I officially did not eat ANYTHING yesterday. All day I drank my lemonade, my spring water and that is it. Except for in the evening, I did have 1 cup of laxative tea. I know that’s gross, but the cleanse requires you drink one every evening.

Don’t get me wrong. It was really, super hard to keep from eating. I wanted food so bad! Especially when I could smell it or would start thinking about it. Then I realized that physically, I was not hungry one bit. But mentally… mentally

I could eat and eat and eat. My brain kept making me think that I was hungry when I was not.

The day went good. By the late afternoon, I did start having a headache which I still continue to have. It seems to fade, then come back, fade, then come back. So it’s not unbearable. I did get really cold at times. I did get irritated, mostly in the late evening when there was lots of food around me and I couldn’t have any of it. That made me mad. Lol.

This morning (Friday, 2nd day of the cleanse) I woke up 3 pounds lighter. It was nice to see the number on the scale drop by that much just in one day. Quite motivational.

Right now I am feeling “the cleanse” a little more. I keep having doubt run through my mind... should I really be doing this?? Is it really safe not to eat for so long?? Will I be able to keep the weight off?? My head still really hurts. I am very sleepy. This is my 2nd day of not having any caffeine, so I’m starting to feel it. I still do not feel physical hunger, just mental. Everything little thing around me is so tempting right now... the hot chocolate, the coffee, the green tea... I would happily eat and drink right now. But I know that once I would finish indulging, I would feel even worse.

So far, so good. Day one (hopefully that was the toughest day) is finished. The 2nd day has begun... let’s see how long I can last on this...
