Day 2

I thought today was going to be the hardest day of them as far as willpower, but I surprised myself. I did have cravings for a bag of lemon flavored potato chips that's hanging out next to the bed and going through Pinterest doesn't make things any easier. But I managed to get through without cheating! Well...unless you count my morning coffee, which I DON'T! By the way, why are there so many incredible looking recipes on Pinterest? Would I ever venture out into actually MAKING them? No. But it's like looking at food porn. I want it and I convince myself that if I wasn't on this cleanse I would totally make it. I got so lazy yesterday that I didn't even make myself dinner. I just opted for a second shake. Haha!

So yesterday was DEFINITELY a low energy day. Low energy plus a baby who is super fussy because she's trying to get back to her normal routine after our holiday travels is a bad recipe. I literally only did the bare minimum and caved in to hold my baby whenever she cried. I just couldn't handle it yesterday. I knew that there are a few days of feeling crappy when you begin the cleanse, so I'm just staying hopeful for the days to come. I've been told the reason for this is because your body is getting rid of toxins and blah blah blah. I think my body wants all that fat and sugar it's used to, but the toxins thing sounds so much better, so let's go with that.

I usually drink Garden of Life Raw Protein but it has a texture you have to get used to. It's like you're drinking the desert and a flood all at the same time. Sandy wet texture. But, once you drink it for a little bit you get used to it and kind of miss it when you try another shake. Well, I haven't had it in a while and I was not feeling the texture, so I've switched and stole my honeys protein shake (he's not drinking it anyways, he's on a protein bar thing). I have a dairy allergy, not lactose intolerance, an allergy. I'm a strep carrier and break out in strep throat when I have too much dairy, so I can only tolerate vegan protein. So my honeys protein is Vega Protein & Greens which is much smoother and creamier and easier to mix with different flavors so I can change up my shake every day.
