Juice Cleanse Day Two went an awful lot like juice cleanse Day One. I drank juice and water, didn't eat food, and generally felt pretty good throughout the day. I'm still disappointed at how easy this was.
By "easy" I mean easy-in-all-ways-except-drinking-the-juice. One of the last cups of juice I had was really pulpy, and, combined with the sourness of the whole thing, kinda made me feel like I was drinking vomit. Needless to say, I didn't make it very far through the second gallon.
Did I want to eat food? Yes, of course. But there wasn't much need to do it because I was full on juice, feeling good and committed to goal.
The end of the day was pretty hard because I was starting to feel irritable and pretty tired, but I don't even know if those things were related to the cleanse. Sometimes I'm just irritable, especially when the puppy was dragging me around, acting up, and pooping in the apartment. I also wake up at 6:30 AM, so staying up past 10:30 generally makes me tired.
Otherwise, when I woke up on Day 182 (the day after the cleanse), I felt really, really good, as if I had been eating well for a couple of days and drinking lots of water. That was really the purpose of the cleanse after all, detoxify and rejuvenate. I don't think my hair was shinier, or my skin brighter. My pants fit the same and I didn't lose any noticeable weight, but I did feel rejuvenated. So much so that I'd actually do this again. Like, make a ritual out of it.
This isn't a great, dramatic, horrifying story that makes great blog fodder, but it was a good learning experience! I would recommend it for anyone needing a pick-me-up after the holiday season, after vacations, after bouts of bad eating, as the seasons change.
Honestly, I'm all into this cleansing thing :)
