Juice Cleanse - Day 5

Day 5 (Friday – 11/9/2012)
  • Sleep: okay
  • Feeling: good, but tired of juicing for 1-2 hours every damn night
  • Exercise: 45-min Jillian Michael’s (No More Trouble Zones) DVD
  • Energy level: tired…just felt like lounging all night
  • Weight difference since Day 1: 6lbs
  • $ spent on juice ingredients since Day 1: $16 today + $97 (prior total) = $113

Today was TOUGH… there were an annoyingly high amount of temptations at work – “bagel Friday”, a plate of trail mix, some insanely good looking chocolate-covered strawberries, and mini cupcakes – jeeeezzz! It’s like the universe was testing my ability to RESIST all these goodies, which on a normal day, I would’ve stocked up on and lovingly brought back to my desk to enjoy!

BUT- I am happy to report that I was able to proudly walk away from it all & drink my green juice instead. Pat on the back for me!

Then my sister kept telling me how much she wanted to stop at 7 days, because next weekend a friend of hers is in town – and realistically speaking, weekends/friends/EVERYthing revolves around FOOD! I even have an early Thanksgiving with some of my in-laws next Saturday, which would only give me 2.5 days to ‘ease’ back into food.

I. Love. Thanksgiving.

At Trader Joe’s this evening, getting more juicing goods…I kept staring at the stuffing and gravy display…gahhhhh. Just put me outta my misery.

So…I may join her…just so I don’t risk a crazy tummy ache/digestion issues later on. I think the holidays/winter is the WORST time of year for a 10-day cleanse. Maybe like, March…nothing is really going on in March (for me at least). Though I’m feeling a little guilty, like I let myself down after committing to make it a full 10 days! Ugh.

Orange Dream Juice (around 32 oz):
  • 2 carrots
  • 3-4 oranges
  • 2-3 pears (I only had 1)
  • 1 medium sweet potato (I had a yam)
  • 1 red apple
