cleanse | days 19-21

January 26, 2012

DAY 19 –
breakfast: smoothie [protein, bee pollen, coconut water, mixed berries, peaches, mango, spinach]
snack: none
lunch: [applegate] chicken sausage, avocado, herb lettuce, wrapped in a brown rice tortilla
snack: 1/2 larabar
dinner: juice [2 large kale leaves, 3 carrots, 1 beet, 1 lemon, 1 pear, piece of ginger]

the thoughts of cheating keep getting stronger and stronger. everything i look at that i am not allowed to eat right now, i think about taking a bite.

just one bite.
no, don’t!
you’re so close.
but no one would know.
just a tiny nibble.
no way!

my mind goes back and forth. back and forth. thankfully, the side that really wants to see this through prevails every time.

DAY 20 –
breakfast: smoothie [protein, fiber, flax meal, bee pollen, water, mixed berries, peaches, spinach]
snack: carrots with hummus
lunch: turkey lunchmeat, guacamole, lettuce, onion wrapped in brown rice tortilla
snack: none
dinner: smoothie [protein, flax meal, almond milk, mixed berries, mango, kale]

i confess. day 20 and i cheated.  i had carrots at 11 PM. the closer i get to the end, the stronger the urges to cheat.  all in all, a great day though.

DAY 21 –
breakfast: none
snack: none
lunch: smoothie [protein, flax meal, bee pollen, fiber, coconut water, raspberries, mango, kale, spinach]
snack: piece of [applegate] turkey lunch meat
dinner: smoothie [protein, flax meal, coconut water, raspberries, mango, kale]

i rushed around early morning and then headed to apple store at 9:30 AM, to get my computer fixed.  i was there two hours, hence my not eating breakfast or a snack. needless to say, i was starving by the time i got back home at 12:30 PM and rushed to make a quick smoothie. so here i am now, just a few hours from being done with my 21-day clean program cleanse.  can’t believe i made it. proud that i made it. feeling great.

so what’s my first day post-cleanse going to be like?
coffee
smoothie for breakfast [water, ice, 1/2 banana, peanut butter, protein, fiber, kale]
i might try a gluten free cookie, that i’ve been eyeing at the health food store [hope it's yummy as i've been fantasizing it is, but probably not]
something super clean for lunch
dinner out with a friend, which will include a beer

i’ll be sharing my cleanse conclusion in a few days. i figured i’d get a couple regular days under my belt before sharing all my post-cleanse thoughts.

so happy i’m done!!!

You did it!!! I am pretty sure I would have caved on day 3… I noticed lots of food pins on pinterest the other day. Couldn’t help but think that you were torturing yourself with all the delicious imagery ;)
