Cleanse: Day 5

Day 5 goin' strong...
2 days left!!!
Today was good.
I woke up feeling a little draggy and tired
but as soon as I woke up I was perky for most of the day.
As far as the hunger factor...
I don't really feel all that hungry anymore.
I think the hardest part is mealtimes.
I don't know what to eat.
I like variety when I eat and I definitely miss that.
It's frustrating to open the fridge at any given meal time and pull out what you pulled out for the last 3 meals.
It gets a little old,
but it's alright.
Only 2 days left!!
My sister mentioned my skin today.
She said she thought my skin looked "glowing" today.
I hadn't really noticed but I did notice as I was brushing my teeth before bed,
I think it has helped my complexion and given a glow to my skin. :)
Today my brother-in-law asked me what I'll be eating for dinner a week from today,
I didn't know how to answer.
One thing that I know is that it's not like I'm going to be eating only fruits and veggies for the rest of my life that' for sure.
It has made me think twice about all the junk I'm used to eating however.
Don't get me wrong...
I still like the yummy desserts and things
I will be more aware of what I choose to eat.
I'm going to try to no longer just eat to eat,
it's honestly not worth the calories.
But I haven't grown obsessive so I feel good about that.
Overall, I think this is something I could do a few times a year maybe,
I feel like it has helped but hasn't made me want to do it more than 7 days.
Maybe some other type of cleanse,
I don't know...
but not this one.
Anyway, I need sleep.


  1. Merilee, A suggestion for new ideas is to google raw food recipes and you'll find all sorts of fun and good recipes. I know variety really helps. I haven't been doing a cleanse, but I've been trying to go raw until dinner. Green smoothies are a fun way to get lots of fruits and veggies. You can find info at You are an inspiration to me!! You go girl!!!

  2. Thanks for the suggestion!! :)
    Thanks for reading.
