:::cleanse::: Day Seven!

I can't believe it has already been a week of my cleanse...
What's even harder to believe is that I have actually kept it up!

I have been feeling pretty good and eating well, but I have definitely noticed a few things since I started:

1. I have been pretty lethargic... combo of cleanse + lady time + hot weather? ugh.

2. I am missing... alcohol. I'm not having withdrawals, I just miss having a glass of wine
or beer with dinner at the end of the day.
(...or, let's be honest...a margarita, just because.)

3. I have a smaller appetite but am eating more frequently during the day.

4. I really love pumpkin~banana smoothies, so yummy!

5. Fresh fruit satisfies my sweet tooth

6.  I have a head cold/congestion (also a common side effect of cleansing?)

7. Lots of yummy, filling, flavorful meals are surprisingly cleanse-friendly!

8. Husband has actually enjoyed said cleanse-friendly meals

9. I have lost 2lbs (yay!...but not the point)... prob just by cutting out dairy,
 so that won't last long!

10. I should have planned ahead and started taking supplements a week before hand,
I definitely feel like I'm lacking iron and vitamins.

Overall, I am happy that I am doing this, and I know my body is thanking me...
but i'm just trying to focus on the visions of sugar plums and 
other delicious holiday munchies that await in the not so distant future!

Sweet justice!

Thats so awesome that you are so far along in this already! Despite the few lame side-effects you're feeling. Plus, those treats at the end of this will be that much tastier :)
