3 Day Cleanse: Day 1 Diary

And so it begins. I I completed Day 1 of my cleanse and I'm happy to report that I haven't passed out yet! I decided to keep track of every drink I consumed in order to give me a sense of purpose and to show how easy this is to do. I constantly mention how this super healthy lifestyle is new to me and I don't pretend to be a pro. I would have loved to have this kind of discipline back in 2009 but I'm glad I finally have it now. Better late than never, right?If you need a refresher on what each drink contains just click here


1. Absolutely Everything (10am)
I read everywhere that starting the day with a green juice on an empty stomach is the best thing to do during a cleanse so I will . This juice isn’t as chewy as I’m used to so I’ll make sure to not strain the next ones for the day as much. I need to start soaking my nuts for tonight nut milk because i’d rather they have a thicker consistency.

I weighed myself today and the scale read 153. I blame this on time spent away where I just ate and drank like it was nobody’s business. This shows that I still have a long way to go on this health journey. I normally don’t workout or diet while on vacation but being away from work is totally different and no excuse.



2. Skin Tonic (2pm)
This one was a bit lighter but chewy which I liked. I drank this one a bit slower but still faster than I wanted to. I felt hungry after this one and I think it was mental. Perhaps I didn't mentally prepare for this cleanse like I did last month. Argh!



3. Replenish (6pm)
Four hours between juices. Not bad. I got kind of busy re-doing my bedroom and bathroom which was a bit helpful. Getting my mind off of food is what I needed earlier today. This juice was my favorite of the day. It was really refreshing and I liked how it was a break from the heaviness. I cheated with this one by adding celery. It made a huge difference and added an extra bit of freshness that it didn't have the last time I made it. Two other people tasted this one and LOVED it. A plus is that It can def be mixed with vodka to be turned into a cocktail. But not until after I'm done cleansing. Aside from water the only other thing I will consume during this cleanse is chai tea. Speaking of which....



4. Nourish (10pm)
I had a chia tea in between the 3rd and 4th  juice which helped curb my appetite. I’m trying to not need 6 juices a day but if my body wants more I will submit. I refuse to be physically hungry. I put this one in the freezer for about an hour to get a bit slushy and it was a pretty fun drink. I can't believe I'm voluntarily swallowing beets!

I started to soak the nuts for the nightly nut "milk" earlier in the day because I thought I'd want it for a nightcap but I'm not hungry so I decided to save it for tomorrow. The longer nuts are soaked the thicker the milk will be which means I'll have an amazing vanilla or cacao nut milk to send me off into dream land tomorrow.



Final Notes on Day 1

So far I’ve felt a bit hungry on this cleanse, I’m not going to lie, but I think it’s because I’ve made them more juicy and less chewy. I’ll have to change that up tomorrow. I need to make them thick enough that I'm forced into taking my time with each juice to let myself get full. I also need to drink more water in between.

I don’t feel any changes yet. I did go to the bathroom a lot more than I wanted to thanks to the carrots so it’s safe to say that while the juices aren’t as thick they’re still doing what they’re supposed to!


One down, 2-6 to go!
