Zenful Dancers! Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day! How the heck are ya? I feel like it’s been a whole day since we’ve last…
O.K. so here’s the gist of it: Today was day 6 and I have not cheated once yet this whole time. Even though this is my fourth crack at a juice cleanse, I still surprise myself that I haven’t eaten any food yet. Of course, I haven’t really been hungry at all. I drink juice when I’m hungry and I do my best to keep my calories up and drink tons of water. This all seems to be working very well except I CANNOT STOP LOOKING AT PICTURES OF FOOD ON THE INTERNET. I know, I know; this sounds like maybe somebody else you know. 😉
Sadly I have been looking at online cookbooks and dreaming up new recipes for my soon-to-be-eating-food-freedom-day. Frankly, it’s sick. I know I have a problem. I have every intention of finishing this cleanse but I can’t help but look!
