Let me just tell you that I am not happy with myself after today. I'm embarrassed. I'm in awe of how low I have stooped. I was not aware of this nasty obsession that I have.
We are officially starting our Master Cleanse tomorrow, but today was Ease In Day #1, and that meant we could only eat fruits and veggies. I was miserable. I went grocery shopping for the kids and for our cleanse and you would have thought I had never been in a grocery store before. I wanted to eat it all. I wanted to get some cheese, noodles, chips, salsa, black bean burger. Oh my gracious do you see my problem?
I then began to beat myself up over the fact that there are people all over the world that would love to eat fresh fruits and veggies for a day.
This cleanse for me this week is hopefully going to be a spiritual road for me. I need to spend 10 days finding my joy, comfort and happiness in something besides trying to stuff my face with food. I truly do have a food obsession. I love to eat. I love good food. I love good wine.
I'm hoping that this is the best exercise I have ever done in self-discipline and will power. I need to practice that. I need to master that. I need to get a grip on it.
So ….. tomorrow I'll be drinking my meals.
Rumor has it that Beyonce lost weight on this cleanse and kept it off. I think she looks fine in picture #1, but who am I to say what someone needs to weigh!
I did the master cleanse right after Christmas a few years ago and made it a time of fasting. I felt great – truly! The only issue I encountered was the acid of the lemon juice gave me mouth sores. Otherwise, it was a big success and adding the prayer/fasting factor gave me a strength & endurance I wasn’t sure I’d have had otherwise.
If you & Aaron are doing it together – even better!
You’ll have to keep us posted on your progress – you’ll do great!
Happy New Year 😉
I’ve done this cleanse twice…..just a word of advice….make sure you continue to drink the amount you are supposed to! I really disliked the taste and after probably day 3, I wasn’t really hungry anymore and just stopped eating/drinking almost entirely…not a good choice!
You are no one to say you need to lose weight! And don’t be surprised if you start to notice a strange smell coming from you…bye bye toxins!
I’m like you – love good food, good wine (why is it only 9am and I’m thinking about hummus?). I wish I had the motivation to do this. I’m not fat at all — but like you say, need more of a spiritual detox from these things. And…. after reading the ingredients, I threw up in my mouth a little… haha. I look forward to reading how it goes!
