Urban Remedy Cleanse Day 2

Woke up feeling pretty good.  Not the ‘raving awesomeness’ that you would expect, but then I haven’t been sleeping so well with hubby away. My skin is clear, and my lips aren’t chapped, for once, however my body has an odour to it that makes me a little glad that hubby isn’t around to smell it!

Juice 1 -  I mixed my unflavoured Fish Oil and a cranberry capsule into this one today. I have to admit that this is my least favourite juice, and I am not sure how I will go having this one another three times! I don’t hate it though...I just find it a bit...pulpy and grassy. I also feel a little unsatisfied after it today, in a way that I wasn’t yesterday. Perhaps I drank it too fast? I can’t wait until 10am comes so I can drink the coconut water!
Juice 2 – I like this much better today, and rather than trying to imagine it as food, I gulp it down as you would an apple juice. I actually have it a bit later than planned, as I was caught up in an osteopath appointment, but while I am starving as I drink it; it feels like barely any time at all until it is time to have my luncheon soup.
Juice 3 – Mmmm. I really am a fan of this soup! It is just a little too much to fit into my large soup mug or one of the bowls in the office, so rather than struggle with an over-full bowl I put 3/4s of it into my mug and drink the rest cold. I know, I know, potentially gross, however my family often had deliberately cold soup during summer, so it wasn’t so bad.
Juice 4 – Celery goodness and so refreshing! Although, my tummy is still gurgling quite hungrily.
Juice 5 – Again, I split this into two mugs of ‘tea’ substitute...and busy myself doing housework while I drink them both, just to pass the time. By the time 5.30 comes around I am starving and dying to have a proper dinner....instead I have a reaaaaalllly long and hot shower and think about how great I feel.
Juice 6 – I heat the first half of this, but although I finish it, it really doesn’t hit the spot and i wish I had saved the whole drink cold. I splash the rest of it over some ice-cubes and sip it slowly as I watch Home and Away. I go to bed early in order to stop thinking about yummy food options.
Ive drank lots of peppermint tea today, and only one green tea. I need to buy a new water bottle for work and hopefully up my water intake a little...
