detox and work outfit

(Sorry I look "unamused" in the first picture.  Please don't take it the wrong way.  I love my reader very  much!)

I decided last minute to join in on all the detoxing fun with phi_style, Dru!!!, and our friend Seo.

So our week long journey ends and may I say that I am so proud of all of us.  Not only did we endure 1 week of only drinking spicy lemonade (yes, I said spicy), none of us cheated at all!!  So proud... so proud.

I'm pretty amazed that you can survive with only less than 500 calories a day.  Also, none of us really felt the hunger, only the need to chew and eat something, that was the hardest part.  Which is probably why the four of us frequently sat around and talked ONLY about food the whole week.

Now that it's over, I think I'm going to try to maintain this mentality and only eating what I need to eat and not what I want to eat.  But I want to eat ALL THE TIME.  We'll see how this goes.

Would I do it again?  I might, in the future if I ever feel like I've lost that self-control of eating too much unhealthy foods too often.  And it's a nice way to cleanse your taste palette because right now I can probably taste everything without eating a handful of it, which is pretty nice.

I'm doing a detox, too, as you probably know from Twitter... but I heard the 11 day lemonade diet makes you POOP a LOT. And I'm not sure if I'm ready for that.

So I spiked my lemonade with oranges and canned lemon juice and agave nectar, and I'm only using it as 1 meal replacement instead of all meals. Other meals will consist mainly of vegetable soups and salads.

After my sister's wedding in a week or so, I think I'll do the full cayenne/lemonade detox, but I'm totally conscious about the shitting and how much you shit a day... ACK!

BTW You look amazing. But you also look kind of not amused.
