Day 1 of The Master Cleanse

So, last night I decided that I was going to try something: The Master Cleanse. For those of you who don’t know, this consists of 6 – 12 glasses/day of:

1. 8 oz pure water

2. 2 tablespoons fresh squeezed lemon juice

3. 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup

4. 1/ 10 tsp (or as much as you candle handle) of cayenne pepper.

5. Nightly laxatives (Hey, it’s a cleanse…these are necessary)

This morning I made my very first meal. I have to admit that it was pretty good, flavorful and not hard to get down. I’m definitely a little nervous about doing this, but would really like to make it for 13 days. I have a cruise to go on and would like to give myself enough time to do the cleanse, and work my way back up towards eating regular foods. Just because I will be eating again, doesn’t mean I’ll be eating crappy food though, I’d like to still try to attempt a healthy diet to maintain my weight/health.

Since I’m trying to keep myself motivated, I feel the best way to do so, is make myself write about how it’s going everyday.  I’m starting to get hungry so should probably start drinking my next little meal :)

Wish me luck.
