Days 3 and 4 are over!
I must confess, I did not go to the gym on Wednesday. I think my body just needed some time to recuperate and adjust to living off of fewer calories. After my run on Tuesday, I was SO sore and my body just hurt everywhere. I also experienced some dizziness and overall fatigue, so I decided to go easy and take a break. I was back on my feet on Thursday and ran my usual 5k with no problem!
In terms of the eating portion of the cleanse, things have been going well. I have been feeling a little bit bloated, but that is apparently not that strange on this cleanse. Actually, I woke up (on day 5) feeling significantly less bloated and uncomfortable than I did the previous 4 days, so that’s good! Maybe my body was just adjusting to the sudden change in my diet.
Here’s something I made to help battle my sweet tooth (and to celebrate pi day the best I can on the cleanse):
All I did was chop up 2 apples, zest some lemons and limes, measure 2 tablespoons of orange juice, throw all of these things in a pot with some water and season with a copious amount of cinnamon. Then I cooked on low heat for about 45 minutes… It’s actually quite delicious! It’s a crustless apple pie. (Although I must say I miss the crust…)
Cheers to day 5!
