Well, I got through the first day of #summersolsticecleanse2015. It was more of a mental game than anything. My physical symptoms were limited, but my moods were all over the place! About lunchtime I started getting really grumpy about the fact that I “couldn’t” eat anything. Luckily no one was home but me so it was just me and my grumpiness, and I took it for a walk. I know you’re not really supposed to do much on the first day, so it was a leisurely walk, but it was a wonderful distraction, and I came home feeling 100 times better.
But today I get to drink fruit and veg juices of my choice! SOOOO excited! I have already made my first juice of the day, which is similar to what I make most mornings…
As you can see, the ingredients consist of:
- 2 apples
- 1 orange
- 1 head broccoli
- 1 cucumber
- 1 large stalk kale
- a whole bunch of mint
Wow, did that taste good! I had a bit of a headache this morning, but I think it was probably dehydration because after a glass of water and my juice, it’s pretty much gone. I’m already feeling lighter, and today the impulse to eat solid food (at this early point in the day at least) is definitely not as strong as yesterday. A very interesting exercise, this is!
Keeping track of the progress?
