Day 4 Winding down [Jul. 30th, 2010|08:55 pm]
I'm at the end of my fourth day and I had to skip going out tonight because I know downtown is going to have lots of food vendors. I never really buy them anyway but I know just seeing it will bring back cravings and I really don't want that. I'm really excited that I've gone this long on just the lemonade but I'm worried about the next upcoming week.

I haven't really told anyone I'm on this yet because I'm afraid they'll freak out at me. I'm mosly worried about this weekend when I'm home with my family and they'll wonder why I'm not eating in lieu of my Lemonade. Not to mention an upcoming event that could possibly draw a lot of attention to my lack of solid foods lol

How do you guys deal with this? Have any of you ever gone through a cleanse without telling anyone?

I talk to a few supportive friends and don't tell anyone else because it's not worth the arguments. However, I also schedule my cleansing around things like family gatherings, so that I won't be a) faced with all the yummy food that I can't eat, and b) having to explain to people who I would just as soon have left ignorant. I know that plenty of people do go to gatherings, or cleanse while still cooking for husbands and children, so it's totally possible, but honestly I don't know that I, personally, would have that much willpower.

I've also learned that I need to schedule it around my period and my premenstrual cravings - if those hit me in the first several days of the cleanse, I'm done for. Never thought about that before it happened, lol. Learn something new every cleanse, I swear...

Oh wow I didn't even consider my period. I should be done with the cleanse before it starts, thank god. I did try my best to plan around gatherings but this one snuck up on me. I guess it's best I do let someone in on what I'm doing so I don't feel like I'm keeping a dirty secret or something.
