Day One Down

Yesterday marked the first official day of the 3-day Green Smoothie Cleanse. I say “official” because there were a few days of transition leading up to it. Considering how my transition days went, I’m beginning to think that I don’t handle change well. Those of you who know me can get up off the floor now. It wasn’t that funny.

The cleanse is going well so far, I think. Having never done this before I’m not sure what to expect. I’m a bit tired and spacey, but I have days like that anyway. My head hurts a bit, and I had trouble getting to sleep last night. Again, I’ve been feeling stressed about work, so it’s hard to tell if it’s the cleanse or the job causing those symptoms.
On the plus side, I’m not particularly hungry, and I’ve had no real cravings so far. I even went to a pot luck last night and wasn’t even tempted by the food. That is quite odd for me. I’m usually a mindless grazer when it comes to pot lucks.

The first day of the cleanse was made much easier by hubby’s joining me. When I announced my intention to take on this challenge I had no idea he’d be interested. He immediately decided to support my crazy endeavour by doing the transition days and the first day with me. I am honoured by his thoughtfulness. I was so moved and grateful that there were tears yesterday morning. Mine, not his. (Did I mention I've been a bit emotional so far during the cleanse?)

Mind you, it hasn't all been wild emotions. There was a moment yesterday morning when we realized that there are some silly side effects to green smoothies. We recorded it to share with you here. Note that hubby is the one with the whiskers.


  1. I'm glad to get clarification about who's got the whiskers!

    I just wanted to stop by to let you know I'm still reading and enjoying your blog, even if my comments are a bit spotty these days. I'm especially enjoying your stories about shopping at the farmer's market--keep 'em coming!

  2. I'm loving it too Meghan! Thanks for taking on the task of being our fearless leader.

    And thanks for your kind words Rosiecat. It's good to know you're out there, and it's wonderful to have such positive encouragement.
