I had been hearing a lot about the 7 day juicing detox. From what I understand, for seven days, you drink nothing but fruit and vegetable juice that you make yourself in your own juicer. Yes, you will lose weight, but really it's supposed to flush out your system of all the nastiness.
I knew that juicing wasn't for me. Even if I did have enough willpower to drink only juice for a week, I really didn't think The Agent would approve, even for a week. I was sure he would say that a juice only diet would not be healthy.
But I figured I could modify it a bit... what if I ate just fresh fruits and vegetables for a week? That would be cleansing, right? No processed foods, no preservatives... that would be healthy, and doable, too.
I explained my plan to The Agent, he was game, let's get started.
Day One (Sunday)
6 am-- BK woke us up and wanted to play. He does not understand Sundays. The Agent went downstairs and made me coffee. "Thanks, Sweetie, but I can't drink coffee this week."
"No coffee? Coffee is natural."
8 am-- breakfast. The Agent and the kids had cereal. I had an orange.
We spent all morning running errands and we didn't get home until 1 pm. I am thankful for that.
1 pm-- lunch. The Agent and the kids have sandwiches, chips, and pears. I had two pears.
3 pm-- snack. I had a bowl of cherry tomatoes and a cup of bottled green smoothie from Naked. This was my weakest part of the day. I really wanted some chex mix. Or some Pringles. Or some Ruffles with french onion dip. As luck would have it, we possessed all of these items.
But I resisted.
6 pm-- Dinner. The Agent grilled a tri tip, and a portabello mushroom for me. I also had some asparagus spears and half a (dry, plain) baked potato.
That's it. Well, I also had like 5 grapes.
How do I feel? Well, not great. I'm not hungry exactly, but I'm certainly not full. I need something to counteract all that freshness.
Like a loaf of french bread.
