JuicyTox Cleanse: Day Two

It's day two of the JuicyTox Cleanse which means I'm halfway done already! I can honestly say I am shocked at how easy this is, whether that is down to practice or not I really don't know, but the nutritional content of the juices is definitely playing a major part in keeping everything under control.

I cannot fault these juices at all. The orange is probably my favourite - no surprises there! - and I'm still deciding on how I really feel about the green juice; while I don't struggle with the morning green juice, the late afternoon one seems to take me a very long time to drink and I'm almost forcing myself through it. I think it's the texture/after-taste, which seems to have echos of a wheat-grass chalkiness to it which it more than likely from the leafy vegetables and pretty unavoidable. I don't know. It's just, not as easy to drink. Regardless, the quality is incredible and that counts for so, so much when you're buying into a cleanse like this. 

Day two and day three are the hardest for the vast majority, I'm definitely nervous about tomorrow! I saw this quote on pinterest and thought it was so relevant to today's diary entry and how we're all going to come up against this time and time again. I'm quite lucky that when my boyfriend cooks his own food, 99% of the time it's not something I would want. What has surprised me is that my only real battle has been with the coffee! My stomach hasn't been growling, I haven't had that horrific bile taste in my mouth, and my mind is much calmer today. Perhaps my brain has realised what's going on and decided to stop drawing attention to the lack of food, because nutritionally, we're ok! 

By far, the most interesting part of this experience so far has been how easy it has been to sleep! If you're new to my blog, it's worth me mentioning that I am a chronic insomniac and have had problems with sleep since the age of about 10. As a general rule from previous experiences, my sleep tends to get into trouble when I'm doing a cleanse, so to go to bed and sleep for 10 hours solidly was nothing short of miraculous and I was genuinely shocked when I woke up. The mint tea definitely had the desired effect as I began yawning not soon after my first cup - you can get two drinks out of a single teabag if you leave it in the mug. 

I have been able to study effectively and don't feel weak or dizzy when I stand up, which I know is a concern for lots of people considering this. 

That's all for today. I'm off to the cinema with the boyfriend to see The Equalizer, my lemon water is coming along too... haha! If you have any questions please leave them in the comments or drop me an email and I'll do my best to answer them in a helpful manner!


EDIT: I forgot to mention that I've lost 0.7kg so far!
