C'est fini!

I finished my ten day cleanse! I'm so happy. I feel incredible! It's nice to have accomplished something that can be difficult for many. But it's more about challenging myself.

I'm on day two of easing into eating so-called "real" food. Fruit, soup, salad and anything light. Like I mentioned before I feel completely renewed. My head isn't fuzzy and waking up in the morning doesn't require caffeine etc... just the morning light and knowing how great this day will be.

Eating for the first time after ten days yesterday was great. I made a broth the night before and it was so tasty. Also, the texture of vegetables are mesmerizing. I had an orange juice as well and the pulp and flavor made me think I'd never tasted anything so wonderful (in terms of OJ anyway).

Anyhow, this cleanse has made me appreciate food even more and though I've always maintained a vegetarian and healthy diet I would like to significantly limit certain foods because without them I've noticed my skin is more radiant and I feel healthier overall.. I'm also more motivated to exercise and maintain my health in that sense because it always takes a second (or third) to other things.

In other news, I have a lot happening as this month goes on. I enjoy living in my new place where I can walk to the ocean, there are more activities and people around and so much food haha! I guess my childhood home is so much more country- even on this small island.

Alright, I promised pictures so I'll get on top of that. I'm off for a couple more days and I'm really hoping I don't work Easter Sunday but who knows :/

Hope you're all well. Have a wonderful day!!

Deep cleanse

Sorry I haven't written in so long! Things have been a little hectic with job searching, getting more work where I am and life in general.

I started something I've been meaning to do for months and finally set a date and began. It's a cleanse! As in no consuming of anything other than this lemonade concoction ( yep, the Master Cleanse) for at least 10 days. Sounds pretty absurd but I'm loving it!! Of course I was like, "not eating?! I love food!! What am I gonna do?" but really it hasn't been that bad. I'm around food and crave some things but never enough to give in. And you know what? It's day 7! I'm almost there! Can't eat a "real" meal till this coming Friday because coming off the cleanse requires "easing out" so your body isn't shocked when you eat again. That means three days of going from lemonade to juice, juice to broths and then the last ease-out day is raw food. Hmmm what should my first meal be?? All I've been wanting is brown ice and kale LOL!

I've been calling this cleanse/detox: Spring cleaning. Why only clean your house etc..? Cleanse from the inside. I feel rejuvenated, refreshed, energetic and just so ALIVE:) I truly recommend it to anyone who feels lethargic, tired, etc.. Your body will take care of you of you take care of it so why not start now?

Sorry for the rambling :p I'm just so pumped. I have a cleansing partner who's also doing it and it's nice to talk about it and have support. So if you're trying for the first time it might help to do it with someone else.

Alright, that's all for now. Will post pictures of my recent adventures in the next post.

Hope you all are well!!

Aloha:)
