Afternoon of 'cleanse' day

Well...I made it to 1pm. Yes, I'm weak. I was starving.

I went on all the 'lemonade cleanse' sites and they did address hunger. They said it could be cravings and that it was my body trying to get rid of the toxins. They said, "imgaine yourself eating a huge salad" and if that didn't quench the 'hunger' then you were having cravings. Well, I could have eaten about 3 cups of greens, so I was hungry. I tried to drink hot tea, water, more lemonade...still hungry. Stomach growling hungry.

Although, I did a bit of self-discovery on the way back to the office... (I broke down and had two string cheese things and then went home and ate a small quesadilla)... Okay, so, as much as I want to tell myself that there is nothing wrong with me and that I'm the exact same as everyone else I'm not.

How silly was it to try and do a liquid cleanse with no Dr. supervision with the kinds of medication that I take? I mean, it's one thing when I don't want to wear my medical bracelet or drink myself silly...but to not eat food at all will jack me up - fo' sho'.

1. If I don't eat any food and continue to take my medication (even for a day) my blood can get too thin because of my dosage.
2. If I don't take my meds for a day or three my blood can thicken up to the point of clotting.

Good options huh? It kind of pisses me off that I even have to think of these things, which of course I just pushed to the back of my head while I was plotting this whole thing. It doesn't make up for the fact that I broke down because of hunger, I mean this "epiphany" didn't come to me until after I had gobbled down some cheese....

Well, now I have some Grade B maple syrup and a small bag of lemons...and tomorrow my arse will burn because of the amount of pepper I ingested. Lovely. I guess I'll have to "cleanse" some other way. Boo.

The usefulness of these cleanses are medically dubious at best. I sure couldn't do it. In my experience, attempting fast weight loss always backfires. I also really hate being hungry, and try to avoid it. But good luck!

Apparently, I'm still not getting enough sleep because I can't see the connection between maple syrup and lemons. And if you tell me that they are combined...

I may just have to put you on speakerphone to enjoy the resulting sound effects! :)
