Day 2-5

Well, today is Day 5 of the "cleanse" far, so good. I know one of my friends liked the idea of me updating every day. I actually thought I might do that, well, until our house has been consumed with the stomach bug all week! So now it's Saturday, all appear to be well & healthy again, and I thought I'd just update these past few days in a little synopsis.

The one thing I do like about this cleanse, and I think I said it before, is you really aren't "starving yourself." She gives so many options & choices for all your meals and snacks--that you are just basically substituting bad with good/whole food options! Even last night we had dinner and casual dessert party for a friend adopting 2 little boys. So I wondered how hard all the "food" would be for me. But I was able to find a veggie plate at the restaurant with house salad, and 3 other veggie sides. And I was very satisfied. Then instead of their "dessert" I stopped at Starbucks on the way and had my first "hot drink" in about a week of decaf latte with soy milk--no sweetener, as I was reminded that soy milk actually has a sweet taste to it anyways. And honestly I wasn't really tempted or just miserable watching them all eat their cookies, brownies, etc. So will I never eats sweets again--doubtfully, I'm sure I will. But it is good to know I do have some willpower if I really want/need to resist.

Tonight I'm going to make up a stir fry with veggies and tofu and brown rice---I haven't had tofu in years! So I'm hoping my recipe/meal with some tweaking will taste as good as when I use the chicken!

And for the grandparents, aunts/uncles out there--sorry, no new pics to update at this time. We did get some good outside time the past few days with the warmer temperatures. Maybe today--though not as warm, but at least sunny and low 50s I can try and take some and upload later this weekend. Happy Saturday!


  1. How did you decide on what cleanse to do? I am trying to have a game plan for post baby...

  2. Tofu is one of our family's favorites!
