So yesterday was the last day of my cleanse, and let me tell you, it was tough. I had a hard time to get the juices down, so I ended up modifying it by removing the second Green Energy and the Cashew Milk. Instead, I finished my day with a light meal. I had a salad with spinach, vegetables, nuts and small dried fruits with a balsamic vinaigrette. And a few pieces of chicken. I realize that’s a no no while doing a cleanse, but I just couldn’t do it anymore. If I had to restart, I think I would only have done it for two days. It was my first cleanse so I had no idea what to expect.
Overall, I lost 5 pounds but gained 1 back. I’m quite satisfied with that since the goal wasn’t weight loss but actually doing the cleanse. Overall, after all this, I feel great. Better than ever actually. Would I recommend it? I don’t think so. The juices themselves don’t taste all that good. The first day, the taste didn’t really bother me and I could deal with it. By day three, I couldn’t really stand it anymore.
Since it looked so nice outside this afternoon, with the bright sun, I decided to go for a run. But it was too cold for me and my lungs. It was -11°C but it felt like -18°C. I only ran 1.5 miles in 20 minutes.
I ended the day with 30 minutes on the elliptical and 3.6 miles. Overall, great day for me since I feel very energized after the cleanse.
Watch for my post tomorrow as I introduce you to my new running watch. Hint: it’s a Garmin and it’s grey and pink!
