health. cleanse.

Broke down and am in the middle of a health cleanse with Nate. Today is day four. Of ten.

Basically, this is how it's going:

The day before the cleanse we were a bit hungover...and by a bit I mean mac and cheese for breakfast hungover...happy birthday, Brett.

Our "last meal" included oysters kilpatrick, haloumi cheese salad, eye filet, creme brûlée. It was amazing. And helped finally kick the hangover.

Days 1-3: Good. Not as bad as I thought it would be. We even got work outs in (Nate is much better at working out than I am).

Day 4: Sniffed banana bread with cream cheese frosting for about a minute (yep, holding up people at work from actually enjoying the bread). REALLY wanted Thai food for dinner but instead had chicken and a salad. We'll see how days 5-10 .

Downside: We don't have a scale so I won't be able to tell you if we've lost weight.

Upside: We are feeling better and I think a pair of jeans that are usually snug seem to be a bit more comfortable. Nate created a delicious salmon recipe that I'll add to the blog.

  1. How did this work out for you? I tried it and didn't loose a thing, others I know did and lost up to 10lb each, and even a few inches...did you do all 24 days?

    1. Hey Richelle! Our first problem - we don't have a scale so I'm not sure if I lost any weight. We only did it for 10 days and in general we felt a lot better and well...cleansed. I don't think I'll do it again, thinking juicing is the way to go.
