Juice Cleanse: Day 2 - Why Am I Doing This?

Day 1 Recap:

Difficulty: 8

Physical: Great, minus hunger pangs.

Emotional: Not so great. Being hungry makes me uber cranky. In retrospect, I don't think I was hungry so much as I missed the ritual, excitement, comfort, etc. of eating.

Pounds Lost: 4 (Wow - a lot more than I anticipated after just one day.)

Moving on to Day 2 - yes, it's been harder than Day 1. Today is the first day I've seriously considered giving up on this stupid cleanse. I've spent nearly the entire day in bed, either sleeping or complaining. I was supposed to go to the gym and run today, but there was no way that was happening. Running makes me extremely hungry, and I knew, I knew, I'd break down and eat something on my way back home.

It's only 8:24 p.m., but I'm already drinking my cashew milk because I intend to go to sleep after finishing this post. I have to be up really early for an eye doctor appointment anyway, and I just don't have the energy to do anything else besides lay in bed and sleep. This cashew milk is the only thing that keeps me going, to be honest. It's so thick and delicious, and last night I found myself attempting to get every last drop out of the bottle. A new low, for sure.

Also? I skipped Juice 5 (green) again today. Honestly, the idea of drinking yet another one of those makes me want to vom.

I have nothing else to say except that I'm glad tomorrow is Day 3, and I'm glad I have work to keep me busy for most of the day. I also have to say that I am seriously considering breaking this cleanse tomorrow before dinner. Would that be awful?

How the HELL do people do this for any longer?!?!?!!

Day 2 Recap:

Difficulty: 10

Physical: Low energy, but no other detox symptoms evident.

Emotional: Miserable. Angry. Annoyed at myself for doing this.

Pounds Lost: Will report tomorrow...
