This weekend turned out to be a flop when it came to the green smoothie cleanse. I made it through day 5 and almost all the way through day 6. I was so proud of myself for making through day 5 with my cousin being in town. My family was so supportive and kept telling me “you can do this!” Friday night I went with my family to Red Robin where I only snacked on some broccoli while everyone else enjoyed delicious looking burgers, fries, and (my favorite) freckled lemonade. It was torture.
Saturday turned out to be a very bad day for me. My mother and sister put on a trunk show for their business, which they held on the side yard of our house. It was set up so cute. While I was outside enjoying the show almost passed out at least 5 different times, I felt extremely light headed and people kept asking me if I was okay because I even looked bad. I also tried to hold my two year old cousin and was so weak that I couldn’t hold her for 5 minutes. I drank a smoothie for breakfast and lunch that day and I also kept snacking on peanut butter to see if that would make me feel better, but it didn’t. At the end of the night I was sitting on the couch feeling so out of it, I couldn’t recall some things I did that day which is completely out of character for me. I contemplated sticking to the cleanse for hours, knowing that I only had 4 more days left and I was trying my hardest to be an inspiration for y’all, I finally decided I needed to go back to whole foods. I don’t know if I felt this way because I am sick with a cold that has continued to get worse or because I wasn’t getting enough calories and protein in my system or maybe both. I just couldn’t keep going while I felt this way and I knew that I had 3 exams next week, it would be horrible if I felt this way while I was trying to study or during my exams.
I took this photo for y’all because I thought you would all have a good laugh. I couldn’t actually drink that coffee or eat that cookie because they were way too sweet after 6 days of cleansing, but I tried lol! After I ate dinner Saturday night, I felt like such a failure for not finishing and felt like I was letting y’all down by not sticking to it, but then I thought about how hard this cleanse was and how good I did for 6 days. I definetly recommend this cleanse for anyone that wants to give it a try and I highly recommend that you listen to your body while you do it. I loved the things I learned during the process. I actually love fruit and green smoothies even more now. I ended up losing 4 pounds, 1 inch in my waist, and 1 inch in my hips in only 6 days!!! But weight loss wasn’t my mission. Learning more about my body and getting into a healthy/clean eating lifestyle was my mission and I feel like I’ve accomplished that. I’m very proud of myself!
Today I enjoyed egg whites, wheat toast, strawberries, and a latte for breakfast with my sister & cousin before we did some shopping. I found a really cute new bikini top and some new workout clothes today.
Check out these cute pajamas I found at Walmart today. I NEVER EVER go to Walmart, but I went today and these pants were so freaking comfortable that I had to get them. And I also don’t have a Star Wars shirt, so I thought “why not?” Lol.
I hope that y’all had a wonderful weekend and have a very happy Monday! I am about to be consumed by endless studying until the end of the week and then it’s SPRING BREAK!!! I’ll be back soon.
