Crazy Sexy Diet: Day Three
Ahhhh day three of the Crazy Sexy Diet Cleanse, the one that I read was the hardest. Yay. I woke up really hungry which is something that never happens so I immediately drank water and had some fruit. I decided to ditch the Kickstarter drink because I really wasn’t digging the taste and knew I wouldn’t be able to stick with it for the rest of the cleanse.
I snacked on some nuts and juices throughout the morning and then decided to order a salad for lunch since I didn’t have enough time (or energy) to pack one before work. It was full of veggies and I topped it with a little bit of EVOO. It totally hit the spot.
Our friends came in town for the night (hi Sara!) which meant my first meal eating out during the cleanse. Honestly when I walked into the restaurant I was a little sad. After a long week I would of LOVED a huge glass of wine and some fish tacos. And I almost caved. Almost. But as luck would have it, our waiter had actually done the 21-day cleanse and gave me a pep talk. I mean seriously, what are the chances??!
He did his cleanse with his church and totally agreed that it was REALLY hard, but he felt amazing after it was complete. Soooo because of his divine intervention I concocted a meal from the menu and made it out without straying from the cleanse!
And for that juicer/smoothie maker cliff hanger? Here are my choices:
Why did I land on these two items? Because of a conversation with my juicing champion and cancer fighting friend Renae. She basically lives this cleanse (Portland hippie) 🙂 and has been really helpful. Here are some of her comments in case you’re wondering:
“Don’t buy the Magic Bullet. The NutriBullet is WAY better, but it’s still a smoothie maker and not a juicer. For a juicer, I love my Breville and got it on Amazon for around $140ish. Also, don’t heat your juices… sounds like you won’t because they are gross but the heat will also kill those enzymes that are so important.”
“Also, there are two price points on the NutriBullet. If you get that, splurge for the more expensive one. Get one of those 20% coupons for Bed, Bath, and Beyond and it really cuts down the price. I think they are around $150 full price.”
Things I’ve noticed:
- Lots of potty breaks (this is becoming a trend)
- I need to drink more of my juices
- Decreased caffeine effects weren’t as bad as Day Two.
How am I feeling at the end of day two?
Excited that I made it through three days! Onward to day four…
