Day Two … The Cleanse.

I hate this. I’m dying. I hate this. What was I, crazy? I’m dying–literally dying. 

Over dramatic? Yes. But that’s me.

Day Two=I hate this detox.

Day Two Observations:

A) The shake was not nearly as good the second day. It was more watery–I’m not sure why. I used a little apple juice and used only half a banana. Not my favorite.

B) No amount of food satisfied my hunger today! And totally not a good idea to start this thing when I’m single-moming it for the weekend. Being the only parent in such heat taking crazy Josh to parks when all I can munch on are almonds and cantaloupe chunks was TOUGH!

C) Oh–I dropped 4 whole pounds between 7am and 11pm yesterday. CRAZY! (Water weight, I know, but crazy!)

D) My sister said that Day Two was her “I hate this” day as well. I think Day One I was like, “Yeah, I can do this. I’m awesome. It’ll be great!” and Day Two I awoke to reality, gnawing hunger, a headache the size of India, and discovered, “Yikes–I want food. And not carrots–FOOD.”

E) Don’t ever think it’s a good idea to prepare lasagnas for the freezer on Day Two (or any day for that matter) of a detox. BAD idea. Major temptation to nibble …

F) I vividly recall glancing at the clock at 4:44pm and registering that I only had to wait 16 minutes for dinner. GLORIOUS!

G) I just realized that yesterday I used numbers for the observation list, today letters. Strange.

H) As I ate my bland chicken, tasteless brown rice, and steamed veggies, my sister Molly mentioned that she had put avocado in her detox dinners for flavor. I raced to the fridge, found avocado, sliced it into my bowl …. HEAVENLY! The clouds parted and angels sang–avocado is my new hero.

I) I’ve had a headache all day, my faces aches, my jaw bones ache, my vision feels hazy, and I’m lethargic … What the … ?!

J) Cherries are amazing. They are my dessert for tonight.

K) 1 through 10 is a lot cleaner than letters …. A-K? Weird.

That’s all I guess …. Until Day Three ….
