So, today is Day 10 of my BePure cleanse! I am feeling amazing! I’m starting to wonder if I didn’t have enough toxins in my body before the cleanse, haha! That’s a joke – as I did binge a little on the sweets before I started my cleanse. I do know that I’m a healthy person, so maybe I’m not feeling horrible because the horrible things in my body aren’t a lot compared to others! Maybe the toxins are moving out of my body during the night, while I’m sleeping. I have been going to bed a lot earlier than usual (at least before midnight) and I’m waking up earlier too! Waking up earlier is a blessing! Today, before I went to work, I was able to fill out my FAFSA for college, clean the kitchen, make breakfast, and even go on a short shopping trip with my roommate! (Okay, I bought a new bathing suit!)
So, this weekend…well…it wasn’t that hard! At first, I thought I was going to have to lock myself in my apartment all weekend. I was nervous to be around my friends, who were going to be drinking, but it really wasn’t bad! Friday night I went to a friend’s birthday party and succeeded being the only person not drinking. I didn’t know a lot of people in attendance, so I decided to “pretend” I had a drink. Before I went over there, I made a hot tottie – hot water, lemon juice, cayenne pepper, and a drop of maple syrup! I think that made people think I was drinking a little, which makes it less awkward. I don’t understand why not drinking is so unacceptable, but I guess, when you’re a 21+ college student, you are expected to drink every chance you can get. Well, not me!
Saturday night I enjoyed a bonfire with my favorite guy friends. It was very relaxing. All the girls were astonished that I wasn’t drinking. Now, this may make it sound like I drink a lot, but I really don’t. I’m a two-drink-drunk kind of person so I never really get to the point that others do. I don’t black out, I don’t get hangovers, and I don’t forget what I do. I’m a reserved and social drinker…so it isn’t that hard to pull off the not drinking thing. I am fun either way!
On another note, today is April 2nd! Yay! I didn’t get to fool anyone yesterday, which kind of stinks. I did go to hot yoga (3rd time since the cleanse began) and I love it! After doing yoga, I made a fake milkshake – peanut butter, greek yogurt, a banana, ice, and a scoop of peanut butter/chocolate Spirulina protein powder! I even had some guys try it, and they liked it! Then they all went to get milkshakes, haha!
Well, today I have to do a lot of homework! I’m in the last stretch of classes – 3 weeks left and then exams! I’m so excited and nervous for the end of the semester. This is my last spring semester of undergraduate schooling! How amazing!?!?! 🙂
Well, that’s all for now!
