Juice Cleanse Day 3

Here is the lowdown on my path to dewey skin and clear eyes
Day 1: Kidney and Liver. The juice is cucumber, celery, kale, broccoli, spinach, cilantro, lemon,apple,beet greens, tomato and romaine.
Day 2 : The Intestines ( they call the intestines the 2nd brain……I hope not especially raising 2 boys ) cucumber, celery, kale, cilantro,broccoli stem, spinach, parsley and ginger.
Day 3: Superskin and Colon Detox . Cucumber, celery, beet, carrot, parsley, cilantro, kale,spinach, lemon, ginger, garlic, cabbage, romaine and garlic.
Though I did not eat anything for 3 days and was starving, ( my family was gone for the weekend, which was a great idea considering the possible grumpy side effects ) and still drank some Louis Jadot Chardonnay nightly my skin looked super dewy and my eyes were whiter. All I kept thinking about was what I was gonna eat for breakfast on the 4th day. I am convinced much of the benefits are due to the tremendous amount of water I was consuming, the cute girl told me there is like 30 celery stalks in a serving. I definitely believe for the most part we do not CONSISTENTLY drink enough water. I would do the fast again sans the Louis, but have integrated juicing into my daily routine. My favorite is the beet juice with jalapeño . I always ask for more jalapeño for my lunch juice. Aside from my new conviction regarding water consumption , I truly believe including fresh organic juices in your daily menu is tres Bueno for one’s skin.

Juice Cleanse Day 2

Cleansing fasting
Juice Cleanse
One down 2 days to go,though I must say it has been easier in the morning. My skin looks amazing and my eyes , despite my chronic allergies, are brighter. I have to say my allergies have been quelled , though I have had a mild headache throughout the day. The program consists of 64 ounces of juice and water daily, hence the constant peeing. I have to say that 3:00 is brutal. I was starving, my stomach beyond grumbling , I wanted a cheeseburger. So I took a nap. Now I get those 5 hour energy drink commercials they play on TV at 3:00 , even when not juicing is 3:00 not brutal ?

Juice Cleanse for Clearer Skin Day 1

Benefits of Juicing
Fresh Sqeezed Juice
My client came in the other day and I complemented her on how bright her eyes looked and how dewy her skin was, she said she was on a 3 day juice cleanse. So I thought what the heck I can go 3 days without food, caffeine and alcohol. Here is my experience with Day 1. First thing  I did was make a cup of tea ( I am a 2 tea bagger ), I suppose I already blew it. I got the boys to school and went to pick up my juice for Day 1. So far so good as the day progressed, you are to follow your 12 oz. of juice with water. Thus one pees quite a bit. By 11:00 I was already starving so I made a cup of coffee, I know that does not make sense. Part of my Honey Do chores for the day was to go to the market , not good to go to the market starving. While rolling through Sprouts I mentally took note of all the yummy things I would eat in 3 days . I also way  over bought chips, snacks and cookies for my boys, I suppose I hoped to feel satiated by the over purchases, my God this is only one half of day 1. The rest of the day went fairly well and I definitely navigated my day with the knowledge of where restrooms were located. 5:00 and time to start dinner for my family, which went better than expected until I poured my 1st of 2 glasses of wine ( large pours by the way ). And then as I am serving chicken that I had marinated all day, my mouth was watering , my stomach grumbling and my juice gone, I succumbed to a drumstick. Aaaah Heaven . Went to bed with my 6 year old at 9:00 PM, so I could sleep through my hunger pains. I actually did feel better though. Not bad for day 1  I thought.

Don't Do Drastic Things While Bored!

I cut my bangs 2 weeks ago and I am already growing them out. Why when we
are bored, we seem to mess with our hair ? Just because you see a picture
of Kate Moss in WWD doesnt mean you will look like Kate Moss in WWD. Ouch.
I am looking more like Danny, my Toy Poodle. Point made: do not cut bangs
when bored. And  as a side note do not cut your hair in your 3rd trimester
( believe me I know ).
