Jenny’s diary: 7 DAYS OF ME Cleanse, DAY FOUR
Today was tiring for me, the afternoon particularly. We had an early morning meet and had to be out of the house by 7.15am so this morning I toted my overnight oats with me in a jar and had them after the meeting when I was at work as I didn’t have time before then. I was too busy getting a toddler ready for kindy and out of the house by 7.15am! Usually I have breakfast just before 7am so it was really hard to wait until nearly 2 hours later to have it – my stomach was definitely making growling noises at me by the time I sat down to eat it. Needless to say, I savoured every bite! I love that the breakfasts are able to be taken with you – such a bonus!
At lunch time it was great to see all the healthy lunches the others who were doing the cleanse had and it was nice to share the experiences we were having with each other. If you are the only one in your household doing the cleanse then I would definitely recommend meeting up with a friend who is also doing the cleanse for lunch or a catch up to share how it is going, the challenges, the differences you are finding already as it is really encouraging! It’s also great to do around day 4 when you are over the worst of it and seeing the light at the end of the tunnel!
Lunch today was the tuna and broccoli salad. Previously to doing the cleanse in March, I would NEVER eat tuna and couldn’t stand it, however one of my goals last cleanse was to try all the recipes/food even if I thought I didn’t like it. Surprise, surprise tuna is now something I love and have kept eating since the cleanse. Healthy and easy to add to lots of meals!
The afternoon I found myself the most tired I have been during the cleanse and struggled a bit to stay focused. I enjoyed a cup of tea and was very thankful that we eat dinner early with our toddler! 5.30pm couldn’t come around fast enough as well as bedtime!
DAY FOUR – Possibly the hardest day for me but glad that it is now officially over half way and there are only three days left. In saying that I am really enjoying the effect it is having on the digestive system and body. I definitely feel much better in that regard and know the tiredness won’t last so it is all worth it! Perfect time to be doing it as well with the weather getting warmer and the smell of summer on the way!
Remember the cleanse is running for all of September to it is not too late to join me!
