    Hi Rebootylicious, I am on day two and doing ok. How are you?

    I've been on a cleanse plus dinner of protein and veggies since March 7th. I've lost 4 lbs, so I might have to amp it up to juice only. And I keep forgetting to drink water until it's almost end of day, which is not good. Hang in there, it gets better.

    I've been remiss in not posting. I've made an executive decision - it's been 5-6 days, I've lost 4 lbs. and I'm still eating some protein and veggies for dinner. I am writing little articles about my juicing adventures. Initially I was on blog.com but they were having 'issues', so I went over to medium.com Lots of fun.

    Day One - 4 carrots, 1 honey crisp apple, 1 golden beet, pinch of ginger powder.

    Other than a headache and some stomach percolation, not a bad one day start. I like my vegetables, but I don't eat enough of them. Had some asparagus and summer squash and they tasted so good. I almost feel like I'm tripping, because flavours and smells are magnified. I am still not doing the complete juice cleanse as of yet - but I'm drinking juice for morning, pre-lunch, lunch and before dinner. Yesterday I only had two juices and dinner. And yes, I ran to the scale this morning to weigh myself and was up. LOL. Like anything is going to happen the first day, when it's been 20 years like this.

    They say, when God gives you lemons, you make lemonade. The ramp up starts with lemon water in the morning. I look around my kitchen. No lemons. Not the best start. I decide to make juice. I dust off my Braun juicer and dive right into a carrot apple golden beet juice with ginger powder (no fresh ginger either). Mmm... yes, I remember how good that tasted the first time I ever tried it. A little sweet - but oh so yummy. I then decided to grab another bull by the horns and start a blog of my descent into hell and back to a new and improved me. Working out some kinks, but this the blog: fruitsofmylabour.blog.com and I'll continue to post status updates here as well. I met a friend for coffee. Instead of feeling like I was wearing waders full of water and walking in a lake, I actually ran for the streetcar. Okay... and then my friend says: Your skin looks great! And I'm thinking, seriously? Already?!

    We stop by a coffee house. Now... this is truly the WORST place I could make a pit stop. Especially on day one of my journey. I look at all my enemies behind the glass: vegan, gluten-free, spelt flour, butter this and butter that. I will not be pulled back into the doughnut 'hole'! I frantically scan the chalkboard to see what I can have. Phew! They serve fresh pressed juices. I grab a small Kale-licious (apples, kale, pineapple and spinach). It is soooo good. I hear my stomach percolate a little and this little voice in my head is almost gleeful when it says, you're in for it now! And then nothing. I'm feeling good. No headache this time, like I experienced for the first 5 minutes after I finished the morning juice. I'm not heading into the cleansing just yet. I'm giving myself two days of easing in - and then BAM! I'm in. I swam this morning and I walked for two hours in the city, with a cart full of vegetables. My face is as red as a beet. I really had to push myself to walk home too. So far so good for the first day. Note to self: must drink lots of water too. Flush out the toxins.

    My middle name is sabotage. My mind is already starting the back talk. I have juiced before - I love it - so that's not the hard part. It's the "only 5 drinks a day" that's the kicker. 3 days to begin ( a little jump start), but first my hourly swim in the mornings.
