Juice Cleanse: Day 1 - Everyone's A Critic

My juice cleanse/reboot has officially begun. I didn't mean to start it on the first day of the New Year, but it happened that way. You see, I bought a juicer last Tuesday and was ready to start my cleanse. Then I took the juicer out of the box. It was broken! Grr. The next time that was convenient for me to get a new one was on Friday. I then went to a New Year's Eve party last night and well, had my last food feast.

Everyone that I've told has something to say about my cleanse. From that I'm crazy to I have to eat at least once a day, I've heard it all. No. I'm not crazy. I've decided that I need this cleanse. I'm young and not letting my health/weight get in the way of me living. Food is my crutch and it's time I throw it away. I want to be healthy and enjoy the life I live. Don't get me wrong. I love my life, but I think post-cleanse it'll improve immensely.

I woke up today at around noon (haha, it was a long night), and had my first glass of juice at 2pm. It was freshly squeezed apple juice. It's amazing how fresh apple juice tastes so much better than concentrated apple juice.

Tonight my "dinner" will be green juice that includes celery, cucumbers, lemons, and granny smith apples.

By the way, I went with the Jack LaLanne Power Juicer Express out of convenience. So far it's been good. It's quick and takes out all the pulp. Although, I enjoy pulp. It gives the extra fiber I love. However, I think this might make the juicer last longer because the skins aren't clogging up the machine.
