Juice Cleanse??

So I first started off doing a juice cleanse, but let’s be real.  I need my food.  So then I added some oatmeal and fruit to the diet, and then by the end of the day, I needed an actual meal so I decided to incorporate food.  So this is my version of the “juice cleanse.”  Basically, I am not eating meat, any sweets,

I am doing this to:

  • develop a smaller stomach.  I want to get fuller faster, rather than keep eating.
  • not feel guilty eating and enjoying myself on Christmas and New Years.
  • lose weight (obviously, but I want to do this for reasons other than that)

Honestly, I feel way lighter and I still feel somewhat bloated in the morning, but without all of the guilt.  My skin feels smooth and it has gotten easier to avoid sweets.  I just think to myself, “No I can’t have that” rather than just go for it and feel guilty while eating.

I can’t believe my 3 day cleanse turned into eating healthy for 6 days straight.  Yes, I did fail somewhat in not being able to do a juice cleanse and staying away from food, but instead, I did eat clean with somewhat of the same effect it would have had with a juice cleanse.

For Christmas tomorrow, I am going to splurge, but on the 26th, I am going to eat healthy again until New Years Day buffet at the Ritz with my mom.

Love,
C
