In t-minus 12 hours, I'll be able to eat!!!!!

Day 3 is practically in the bag. I felt alert and well-rested today even though I got about an hour less sleep than I usually do. My clothes are also pleasingly loose on me, but like I said, I expect that to last all of a week. On the downside, I'm so completely nauseated by (and sick of) the taste of the juices, that I'm not going to be able to make myself finish the last 2. Instead, I had a small handful of walnuts, and when I start to get really hungry, I'm going to go to bed. Unconsciousness is always the best defense against discomfort.

Now, the important part: getting back to eating the foods that I love! I wish I could stuff my face with everything pictured above tomorrow, but in reality, I'll have to ease back into eating solid foods slowly, starting with the ugly stepchildren--cooked veggies and salad with grilled chicken. One thing I WILL be indulging in is a cappuccino, which I've been depriving myself of for the past week. I guess the one thing I've learned through this whole juice cleanse business is you have to pick your vices. Of all my vices (of which there are so many!) I pick:

alcohol (in moderation, of course)

And the vices I have to do my best to curb are:

bread, cereal, pasta (I'm a carb hound)
Red meat (ok, I'm not swearing off of it forever, but I'll try to cut back)

Ok, enough about all this. I've bored myself. I promise never to talk about food again unless it's delicious food that I'm eating. Amen and good night.


  1. Wow! You go girl... That sounds like an amazing idea. Lord knows I definitely need to cleanse.. Although since cutting back on my alcohol consumption (wayyyy back) I find the pounds just shedding and my usual next day apologies are pretty much non existent. Way to go though! I'm getting hungry just looking at those pics..


  2. When I read your previous post, I was a little confused - I thought that exploding ovaries were perhaps a symptom of juice fasting? Okay, I finally got it - such a cute kiddie blog! Those dishes above do look divine. I'm a big fan of baby octopus too. And eating is such a sociable activity - seems such a shame not to share a delicious feast for the senses.

  3. You almost make it! Good for you :)
    The food pictures looked mad delicious!

    Lol Shortcuts are so much better, ain't it?I will definitely put myself to test this whole cleansing thing. Plus I have been over-indulging lately, it would be a great excuse to lose some weight!
