On the plus side, what do I hope to gain from this cleanse? A detoxified body that is finally ready to lose weight (my baby is a year old, hello baby fat fall off!). More awareness of what I eat and how many healthy options there are (I've thought of about a hundred things that would be good for me besides an apple). Self control. I have never had much willpower when it comes to sticking with diets or fasting. If no one is holding me accountable, I crumble at the first temptation. I keep thinking about all the people in the Bible who fasted for 40 days or more. Jesus, Moses, Elijah. It makes me look pretty wussy to be whining about 10 days when I'm actually not even that hungry.
So that's today's update. Tomorrow I get to add raw nuts to my salad, whoo hoo! In case anyone is wondering, I'm also taking these supplements to go along with this cleanse.
And because a post is not a post without a picture, here's one from the park the other day. Did I mention that I'm in love with my camera? Love it, love it, love it.
