Day 3: The Master Cleanse

The Master Cleanse

I’ve made it two full days on the Master Cleanse thus far. This morning, I woke up though, and realized that I only had enough maple syrup to make 8 oz glasses of me “lemonade”. This isn’t a huge deal seeing as I can go to the store and buy more, but the idea of going into a building full of food seems quite difficult at this point ha.

Quite honestly though, last night was probably the most difficult night yet. A few of my friends and I went to Bingo at Hamburger Mary’s and EVERYONE there was ordering food and drinks like no other. Seeing drinks coming and going, plates filled then empty was like pure torture. I was also exhausted, but thankfully the entertainment was amazing and I couldn’t be stopped from having a good time :)In fact, last night I happened to win a game of bingo and was able to do my prat falls in front of the entire Flipping Out cast, Sara Rue and the rest of the crowd at bingo. I always get a kick out of making my friends and everyone else laugh at my embarrassment, so that was pretty awesome. All around a good night, with good people :)

I’m doing pretty good so far today, but just wondering how long I’ll be able to last. My friend is coming over tonight to cook us dinner, and I want so badly to be able to enjoy it! Hopefully my will power will keep me strong enough to resist (although I’m doubting it at this point).

Day 2: The Master Cleanse

Today is the second day of my Master Cleanse. I know I had initially said I was going to attempt 13 days, but I have chosen to do 10 days with a 3 day transition back into eating foods. Already I’ve noticed that my stomach is smaller (due to not having ingested any real substance in over 24 hours, most likely), and my energy level isn’t too bad. Last night I was struggling with my hunger because just about every damn commercial that came on revolved around food: taco bell, Kate Plus 8 eating dim sum (mmmmm), subway, quiznos, i could go on and on, but it’s just making me remember how good it all looked. Anyway, I woke up this morning and wasn’t too hungry, which I was thrilled about.

Now I’m at work and thinking about the fact that tonight I’m going to Bingo at hamburger Mary’s. No drinking. No eating. This is going to be hard. Not to mention, tomorrow a friend is coming over to cook us dinner (which I can’t eat) AND it just so happens to be Labor Day Weekend. I mean, there is going to be an abundance of food and drinks this weekend, and usually, I would be ALL OVER IT. Unfortunately, I’ll have to watch as everyone enjoys and I am sipping my lemonade concoction. I know I can do it though, I just have to keep telling myself that it’s possible and I CAN do it.

Sadly though, I really wish I could substitute a lemon drop for my lemonade this evening :(

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.
