Detox Day 2
Day 2 of this detox, I'm pushing through, yesterday was not a great day. I didn't feel very good in the evening and ended up crying for about half an hour. Ridiculous! I complained to my husband how much I wanted chips and cookies and cake and french fries and ice cream! He just laughed at my silliness. I told him that if I couldn't make it through the breakfast drink without gagging, then I wasn't going to continue today. I made it. Dang.
If you're curious what this detox includes, you can find full instructions here, but I'll do a brief summary.
First thing in the morning:
-water with lemon and ginger
-green breakfast juice: celery, kale, an apple, a small cucumber, parsley. So far I hate it.
Mid morning snack:
-cut up veggies-celery, cucumber, carrots. I did not include celery today for fear of throwing up. It would appear celery on it's own makes me sick. I've never really liked it anyway.
-sushi salad-grated carrots, avocado, cucumber, cilantro, nori, toasted sesame seeds, and a soy/lemon/ginger dressing. Not bad, I like the nori the best because it reminds me of sushi :D
-'activated almonds'-I soaked them overnight and so they are damp, that's supposed to bring out more of the nutrients. These make me want to gag as well. It's sort of a love-hate relationship. I like almonds, but something about this texture is not working for me.
-Vegetable 'soup'-basically a ton of cut up vegetables in water with a little bit of salt and spices. Not bad.
-Chia seed pudding-it never turned into a pudding consistency like the site said, I ended up drinking it. It was weird.
-Cup of Chamomile tea-it's supposed to relax you. And I did have a very good night. Of course that could have been because of all the crying.
I am curious to see how I feel tonight and tomorrow. A lot of the reviews I read said that the first and second days are rough but everyone feels amazing on the third day. We'll see.
