Crazy, Sexy Diet: Day Six
I’ve lost the will to live. JUST KIDDING. I actually feel amazing today. I don’t know if it’s the weather, the new cute shirt I have on (that I’ve received zero compliments on RUDE), the cleanse or a mixture of all three, but I haven’t felt this good in a while.
This morning I headed to Crossfit , had a really strong workout and guzzled a ton of water. I’m still drinking my half-caffeinated coffee with no cream or sugar in the morning but I’m actually thinking I’m ready to take the step down to ¼ caffeinated tomorrow. I know. The barista at Starbucks may actually call 911 when I tell her that news.
Today’s Eats: For breakfast I had a banana plus some cleanse-approved granola and for lunch I ventured over to Arden’s Garden for smoothie. Do you people know about Arden’s Garden? Unfortunately for you it’s only located in Atlanta right now but I’m sure there are similar places all over the country. I’ve actually been going on and off (more off) for a couple of years but never really understood their philosophy.
Today I sat down and talked to some of the employees and clients and by the time I left I felt like I was ready to buy stock in that place. Note: I’m easily swayed. If you’re looking to start a cult and have an argument that’s even half-way convincing, I’d most likely sign up within minutes.
Arden’s also offers a 21-Day Cleanse—I haven’t read all of the details but it seems pretty similar to the Crazy Sexy Diet Cleanse. Every location offers fresh juice daily, “We’re purists. All our fresh juices and smoothies are made from fruits and vegetables, nothing else.” You can even sit down and take four shots consisting of wheat grass, ginger, lemon juice and cranberry juice. I’ve watched people doing it before but today I actually sat down and participated. And now I’ll stop going on about Arden’s Garden (but it really is amazing).
And dinner tonight was AMAZE-BALLS. The hubby and I had a date night (yes on a Monday) and went to Cafe Sunflower, a local vegetarian restaurant. Their menu actually has everything labeled as either Vegan or Vegan and Dairy Free which was super helpful for a newbie like me. And now I present to you my cleanse-approved feast:
Things I’ve noticed:
- Feeling awesome – no afternoon cloud. Yes really.
- I’m trying new foods at new restaurants.
How am I feeling at the end of day six? Great! Onward to day SEVEN…
