Day three of the Master Cleanse, and I cheated.
Last night I had crackers. Not one or two. Enough to make me feel that a full on confession was needed in the form of a blog.
I've done it a number of times before, but the longest I've lasted was between 4-5 days. In my mind, if having (a numer of) crackers is going to keep me on this juice cleanse for a more extended period of time, then oh well. I didn't have a meal.
At least, that's what I told myself until the cramps started to ensue. I paid for my negligence. I won't be doing it again. I'm either sticking straight through it, or getting the hell out...gradually.
For those of you who don't know, the Master Cleanse is something that rids your body of toxins, a juice fast. It's recommended to be done for 11 days (good luck and godspeed on that one) but I do feel it's a personal decision. Everyone's body is different.
I tend to start it when I really feel the need. This go round was because my 'pipes seemed a bit clogged' and I felt remnants of Thailand still around. Nasty, I know, but not as nasty as what comes out of you on the cleanse itself. That Sea-Salt water flush is no joke. Give yourself an extra hour in the morning. You'll need it! I finish when everything is out and I feel the difference. Not to mention, I've dropped 3 pounds over the last 48 hours.
