It gets better.
Or maybe it's because I used some Chinese medicine to counteract the diarrhea/detoxing...and maybe it's because I didn't use as much celery as the recipe called for.
Yesterday was oranges, apples and celery. I also made sure to make a little less. So I drank about 600-750ml of juice last night instead of nearly a liter and held my breath. (It was a hideous shade of barf green - but went down smoothly.)
I didn't toot like a crazy lady (like the first night).
But I also didn't sleep in PURE FEAR of crapping myself in my sleep (when the aim should've been a toot...a blast at most...).
I did use the bathroom this morning in a rush before class and hoped and prayed to the detox gods to cut me some slack because I can't afford to miss ANY more school. (I have a ton of meetings coming up and other stuff that is mandatory for me to go to - so really...I can't miss school!)
The detox gods were kind to me today. I made sure to not even fluff in the empty aisles of the library...not at the empty bus stop...nope.
I tested myself before going out the door with the kids. I had a banana and perhaps that helped because so far so good.
I'm currently snacking on salted mixed nuts and doing alright.
Tonight's juicing menu says 2 apples, 2 oranges and you know...14 FREAKING CARROTS.
And of course it's the "Eye Opener" recipe.
Yeah no frigging kidding...
Not a typo - the site even said so.
I'm going to be swapping those 14 carrots for maybe strawberries instead. 14 strawberries (frozen - I'll take them out to thaw first) is a lot more manageable than 14 carrots. Sure, I can shove 3-5 at a time into my juicer but I also could use those carrots for meals.
Although, considering the load of my homework - maybe it'd be worth to get ill again....
I found I'm still energetic and not as hungry - but made sure to eat small meals still - and healthier snacks - just so I don't mentally think I'm starving and end up eating something ridiculously un-healthy for me.
