The day has finally arrived. We have finished our Master Cleanse. I can't believe we actually made it for 13 days. To be honest I can't believe I made it through the last two days which had to have been the worst.
I have not been hungry once during this cleanse until today. It's like my body knows it's going to get to eat tomorrow and it's ready. We do have to ease into eating, or ease out of the cleanse - however you want to look at it. Tomorrow we will have fresh squeezed orange juice during the day and fresh fruit for dinner. Most sites and blogs I have been to recommend just having juice for a few days, but poop on that. We both want food. This is how we eased off last time and it was just fine.
I feel really good right now - about myself and physically. It really feels like an accomplishment to have completed this and I feel emotionally energized to do some great things this year. Honestly, I don't think I have felt this good in a long time.
While the juice part of the cleanse is over, the cleanse itself is not. It's going to stay with us as we ease back into eating and from now on as we focus on putting only healthy things into our bodies. I have our whole menu planned out for the next few weeks, which I will write about later. For now I think I am going to hit the hay and knowing that I really accomplished something and that tomorrow I will get to have something other than lemon juice, syrup and cayenne pepper.
