All the things

On Thursday, I ended my juice cleanse thing and I was like...
This is not how you are supposed to end a juice fast. You are supposed to start with solid fruits and vegetables and work back to your normal diet. But man, I ate all of the things.

Man, eating things sounds so good.

Juice fast thing: hour 46 ish.
I still really want some quesadillas. I want to eat a lot of things. Somehow my orders-two-entrees-for-himself fiance is doing so much better at this than I am. He's all "I have energy!" and I'm all "nobody talk to me."

I'm going to force myself to go to the gym and hang out on the elliptical for a half hour and hopefully some sweating will make me feel better. The sweating or the Gossip Girl I'm going to watch while I do it.

26 more hours.

Breakfast: pineapple, grapefruit, carrot, beet, kale, lemon and apple juice. It's delicious(not sarcasm.).
Lunch: same
Dinner: Probably the same thing plus a blood orange? I kinda failed at V8 last night. I added peppers and the spiciness was the only thing I really liked about it. But I forgot the beet. Probably the missing link. That or salt. wonderful, beautiful salt. (I did actually add a little bit. It wasn't enough)

This is the juice I've been drinking all day. When you mix it up it's just a dark beet color but it sure was pretty while I was making it. 
I'm roughly 20 hours into a 72 hour juice cleanse/fast/whatever. I'm pretty hungry.
I set a goal at the beginning of the year to complete a juice fast/whatever because I've read good things about giving your body a reset. I'm not particularly kind to my body food-wise so a few days of vitamins seems like a great idea. Ideally I hear I should eat better all the time steps. 
I'm doing the 72 hour version before I try a full 5 days for a couple reasons- 
1. 5 days of consuming nothing but juice is really expensive. It's a shitty truth of today that it is often cheaper to eat poorly than to buy produce. 
2. I have a lady date on Thursday at Louie's in Eugene. I haven't been to Louie's for years. I'm going to eat some food. 
3. If I make it through 3 days without killing someone I can probably do 5 days right?

Today's juices:
Breakfast: a little bit of almond milk, then a tasty mix of carrots, apples, lemon, and ginger.
Lunch/allllll day: beets, kale, grapefruit, carrots, apples, lemon, and ginger
Dinner: Thinking of creating a V8 type of deal. I need something that's not sweet. 

I feel okay. Just hungry and craving cheesy things like a mofo. And bread. Basically I want like 10 quesadillas.
