So I made it… sort of.

My last day was Friday and I have to fess up to actually having dinner that night.  With my cold I just wanted something hot and spicy so I did have some vegetarian pho at Hanoi3 Seasons – which has the best Vietnamese in the city.

Before sitting down to break my fast I weighed myself on the same scale I had before I started and can report a 5-6 pound loss.  Now while I didn’t do the cleanse to loss weight, I am not going to complain about that added bonus.

All-in-all it was a great experience that I plan to repeat monthly (although I am going to request a little more palatable green juices – if that doesn’t defeat the whole purpose). I also ordered some juices and elixirs for this week that I am excited to try:

Love Your Liver: Cranberry, orange, carrot, beet

Cellulite Blast: Orange, Grapefruit and lemon

Tropical Intervention: Apple, Celery, Carrot, Pineapple, mango, papaya, spinach, Kale

POMPOM ME: Pomegranate, Lemon, ginger

Immune system Kick: Lemon, Ginger, Cayenne pepper

Now, I truly believe I am almost over this cold, that has held other people hostage for 3 weeks, because of the juicing. The 3 days also served as a start to a healthier everyday me which was what I was hoping.

Who knows, maybe next I will make it through the last couple hours! I also plan to get a workout in next time and maybe some yoga. I did have a massage Saturday morning which was also helpful I am sure in pushing the toxins to my lymphatic system.

I don’t expect that I will refrain from all the goodies next weekend but I think I will be smarter about my choices in general!  If you want to do your own cleanse – check out Raw Juice Guru (no, they aren’t paying me to promote them) or Belmont Raw which has a location in Leslieville.

Cheers to a new week!
