The final Morning Cocktail! Huzzah! Turns out, they’re not so bad. I will probably continue to make these a few times a week.
Triumphs: I finished the cleanse, without cheating once and it wasn’t very hard at all. After the first day or two, I wasn’t even very hungry. It shows me that what I thought were hunger pangs were actually false hunger. I didn’t need food, I needed to feed a craving.
I love five pounds and I feel so much better!
Makeovers: Today, at my second day at work, I made a point of wearing the kinds of clothes that made me feel really good about myself.
Challenges: On Saturday, I work a full shift and haven’t had time to make any arrangements for what I’m going to eat. When coming off a cleanse, it’s wise to not jump back into old habits, for two reasons: you can feel ill if you do, and why undo the good work that’s been done?
Intentions: I intend that eat some leftover quinoa for breakfast, so I’ll be full until lunch. Then I intend that I go to Sprouts (a local health food grocery store) for lunch to find something suitable.
Current Conditions: Feeling triumphant!
Daily Thanksgiving: I’m thankful that I’ve proven to myself that I can still do this (I was feeling very discouraged and depressed before I started). I’m grateful for my doctor’s recognition that I needed to do a cleanse. She was right.
