Dun Dun DuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuN….
Well, we’re FINALLY at the AFTERMATH of my Juice Cleanse Journey Luvahs…and A-to the-Men for that! Seriously. Taking a bite out of this never felt so unbelievably AH-MAZE-BALLS!
<<Enter>> Banana Blend
Burning My Buns proved equally euphoric! Hollaaahhhh Treadmill!
Now THAT, My friends is how you get your day started!
Now before I get to the nitty gritty of my overall experience and the conclusion of my Juice Cleanse Journey…
I have a confession:
We didn’t have the remaining two juices for dinner…and we didn’t starve ourselves, either…<<hint hint>>…No. No more of that rubbish! Instead, around 6pm HB (Honey Buns) & I both felt so miserable that we collectively made the decision to…
EAT SOME MOTHER EFFING FOOD!
And ONE BIG GIANT Skinnygirl Margarita CHEERS to that!!!
At that point I felt so lackluster, restricted, depleted and depressed, that I knew I just HAD to put an end to my journey. Why? Because along the way I lost my vibrancy, clarity and motivation which was a clear-as-day sign to
I cannot tell you how liberating that decision was! It honestly felt as if I were being released from some sort of a prison. I’m sorry to say, but it’s the raw truth of how I felt-and you know I ain’t gonna lie! Before a morsel of food even touched my lips, the mere decision to not continue brought forth a feeling of restoration and elation because I knew I was no longer going to exist in such confinement.
Unfortunately, the cleanse didn’t have the positive effect on my body (or mind) that it can have for others, so it was time to call it quits! There was no sense in continuing because I saw no good in me essentially starving myself another day-Surviving on nothing but water and maybe some cucumber for the remainder of the eve hardly sounded appeasing…or healthy for that matter!
Overall, this experience reinforced my philosophy that taking temporary measures that are extreme and restrictive aren’t beneficial for us in the long-run.
Instead, it’s about finding a healthy balance that’s realistic, enjoyable and conducive to your lifestyle!
What you do over the course of your lifetime is what will make a difference, not what you do over the course of 3 days. Even though I was “flooding my body with nutrients,” I did not enjoy the experience, nor did I feel great physically. But this was MY ACCOUNT…I’ve read many other experiences on juice fasts and others reaped some major benefits, albeit TEMPORARY- *Key Word*
Look, I still love raw foods and juices, just ON MY TERMS. So my advice to you would be…
TRY IT YOURSELF
You never know what will work for you, and what will not if you never experiment! There’s always something to gain from a new experience!
And that my friends closes My Journey on a Juice Cleanse. I hope you enjoyed the ride!…
Muah! Muah! Muah!
