Anything Interesting Happen?

So even after 26 days I still made a very similar mistake yesterday to my Day 1 rookie mistake! I ate too many nuts and fats. By the evening I was in the fetal position with a hottie (hot water bottle), feeling sorry for myself. What a muppet. Maybe this time I’ll remember too many nuts and fats = tummy ache!

I decided to do a juice and green smoothie day today – I really felt like it after last night. I had fresh orange juice for breaky, a green smoothie during the morning but was STARVING by 1pm… so had a salad. ;-) I haven’t ever done a full liquid / detox cleanse before, and even with the green smoothie – which has a bit more oomph than just a juice – I still couldn’t do it.

I’m keen to give it another go at some point but I kinda feel like my energy and motivation for additional diet restrictions is pretty low right now ;-)

I was actually starving all afternoon as well and ended up having another salad about 5pm. I did eat less sugar and fats today than I have been recently so even that change felt good.

I really can’t believe it’s the last day tomorrow of my raw diet. This month has gone incredibly fast for me – way faster than I had anticipated.

I feel good :-)

Recipes And Facts

I haven’t ever really thought about doing a juice or green smoothie cleanse before. I’m not sure I’m a fan, but I guess… don’t knock it until you try it (well…I did try it today but failed so that doesn’t quite count)
