consider me cleansed

Soooooo. I just broke a 9 day cleanse and I'm feelin good :)

For nine days, I drank the following mixture:

5 cups of water,
2 tbsp of lemon juice
1 tbsp of pure maple syrup.

oh and a pinch of cayenne pepper... i guess i left that out at first cause i am trying to forget it.

thats all.

I wasn't planning on doing the whole ten days, just a couple of days to clean my body and make my stomach aches and desire to eat a whole batch of cookies in one sitting go away. That's what the cleanse is for; getting rid of your sweet tooth etc.

But one day at a time, I realized I wasn't all that hungry and decided to shoot for the recommended 10 days :)

I was doing great until this morning, when I woke up sooooo drained of energy. I struggled to get through my classes, and finally made it home for my lunch break. I just ate a pear and broccoli, and haven't felt this good in a while! wooohooooooo

What about the Cayenne pepper ingredient? Isn't that in there somewhere? It is the thing that made me know I could never do that cleanse. I'm glad you're feeling good!
