Today marks the first day of an experiment: I’ve set forth to do The Master Cleanse. Yes, that’s right, for the next 10 days I will be subsisting on a "Lemonade" mixture, replete with Cayenne Pepper. No food. No drinks other than this, water, and mint tea. And no, I haven’t lost my mind; I’ve wanted to do this for a few years so figured it fit in well with my Detox Month (aka, July, in which I’d already committed to no alcohol until BlogHer.)
Lofty goal, I know it. I’m interested to see how I do.
The book (and testimonials from friends who have done this) say that days 2, 3 and 7 are the hardest; the book also says that most people aren’t hungry. So far, so good (though around lunchtime when everyone was doing something, I found myself sitting here and printing out photos on my ‘lunch hour.’ Exciting, I know.) I think I’m going to hit the gym across the street as a daily distraction; I’m overdue to begin my running program.
Anyway, that’s that. I’ll keep ya posted (sans gory details) on my progress, but Internets, wish me luck. You KNOW how much I love food.
