TGIF. I’m relieved to announce that today is the last day of my cleanse. The only reason I’m so anxious for it to be over is so I can regain my social life. I got used to the way the 16 oz. concoctions tasted and instead of trying to gulp them down as quickly as possible I began somewhat enjoy them appreciate the health benefits.
However, being the only one sober at happy hour with the girls on Wednesday and walking past Dunkin Donuts on my way to work every morning has been extremely painful. (I can smell the DD coffee from the second I step out of my apartment.) The side effects weren’t bad, but I did do an “easy” cleanse. I had slight headaches in the mornings, but I think they were due to the coffee withdrawal and my level of energy has been low. I did get to sleep early and slept like a baby every night though, which was nice. I wouldn’t recommend cleansing during a busy week.
Overall, I’m glad I was introduced to Organic Avenue and do plan on trying different levels of cleanses a few times a year to keep my body in check. I also feel it helped me build a better awareness of what I’m putting into my body and I plan on being more careful about what I’m eating.
