My first day on the 10-Day Green Smoothie Cleanse was successful. Why? Because I did not lose my mind at Chuck E. Cheese’s last night! My good friend’s little darling turned 2 and the party was awesome! There was unlimited pizza, bread sticks, and hot wings but I maintained my cool and calmly stated to everyone, “I’m good…juicing right now…need to do it for my health.”
The truth is – I was silently negotiating with myself. I am pleased that the healthy wanna-be within won the battle. However, it made me think about why it was a battle. I also thought about if the opposing side had won, how the carnage of pizza crusts and chicken bones would be have been a sad reminder of my failure.
On a serious note, I realize that it must be extremely difficult for drug addicts, smokers, and alcoholics to endure day by day. I have mad respect for anyone who has managed to recover from addiction. IT IS NOT EASY!
Last night, I felt like a crack addict in a crack house trying to kick the habit. I did it!
New Years day – 2016 will be my 10th day on this cleanse. The goal is to start the new year without craving sugar and sodium (caffeine, unhealthy fats too).
I am halfway through DAY 2! Yay!!!
