21 Day Adventure Cleanse- Day 2

I survived Day 1 and I'm ready for more. Some easy things I added to my day: Instead of driving to my neighbor Victoria's place I decided to walk and my positive affirmation today was "I'm stronger than I think." Also, this morning I drank a large glass of water with lemon and a hint of cayenne pepper, which is part of the cleanse. It's supposedly great for circulation and loaded with anti-oxidants. It's supposed to make you think clearer too... I'll get back to you on that one!

21 day Adventure Cleanse- Day 1

It's Day 1 of this cleanse from the book "Crazy Sexy Diet" and I'm giving it somewhat of a shot. It's pretty much everything you could think a cleanse would be. No sugar, cut out dairy and drink that so called "green juice." Also, incuding some food for thought based around spiritual awareness.
Since I like to take baby steps with just about everything I do, I thought I would start with the eliminating caffeine. Actually, not so fast. So, I didnt eliminate coffee, but I thought for the next 21-days I would only drink my coffee with no sugar. So far so good.
Also, during the next couple of weeks, I'm going to pay attention to Gluten-free items and incorporate it into my diet. My favorite Gluten-free bite of the moment are Pure Organic Bars in apple cinnamon.
