Juice cleanse, day four

Wednesday, July 13, 2016

If I could sum up today in one word it would be this: happy. The shift from day three to day four is just unbelievable. My appetite still hasn't completely shut down but my energy and focus are back and I'm already experiencing some heightened senses. I think faster, and i'm more alert. For some reason I can't stop smiling. I swear that this juice is making me high. It certainly feels that way. No amount of junk food has ever produced this level of euphoria.
I'm not exaggerating. And it's not the taste of the juice. Today I got bold, and added stuff into my juice that I wouldn't normally touch. Like grapefruit. I hate grapefruit juice. I juiced it for breakfast along with an orange and some watermelon and you know what? Turns out I didn't like the store bought juice, even the stuff that was 100% juice. I needed it raw and unpasteurized. You know what else is in my juice? Cabbage, something I hate all forms of. But then you pair it with some cucumber, apples, oranges, and spinach, and it's pretty tolerable. I'm not even sure I taste it to be honest. I've also added beets. It's not that I hate beets, I just don't go out and get them on my own. I didn't think it was so bad paired with strawberries and watermelon. And all this is giving more energy than I know what to do with. I know I can't cleanse forever, but I sure wish I could.
I guess that'll help when it comes to eating solid foods again to keep me in check. I've always been a slave to my taste buds and cravings but now I feel different. It's not that I don't miss a good bar of chocolate but I know what healthy feels like, and that euphoric feeling is something to hold on to. Something to chase. Eventually, hopefully by the end of this 30-day cleanse, the feeling of health and strength will outweigh the need for comfort food by an overwhelming margin.
I can do this. I am doing this. I am being cleansed. I am becoming renewed. As a result, each day I'm feeling better.
