Today was shopping day. Thankfully the program, Danette May’s 30 Day Challenge, includes a check list for the 3 Day cleanse. After looking through my kitchen I was able to check off items I already had on hand and then those I needed to purchase. The private Facebook page for participants has also been full of suggestions complete with links to amazon or stores where difficult to find items could be purchased. The program even includes a substitution list for some items you may not be able to get or be unable to stomach.
I elected to purchase the items for the 3 Day cleanse as well as for days 4-7. I imagine I will not want to go to the store after 3 liquid days, in and out. A friend commented that I was thinking ahead. I told her, “No one wants to see me shopping while hangry.” Truth. I had hoped to prep the veggies and pre make the quinoa this evening, but the day got away from me. I decided I would rather lay in bed sipping on my final bourbon and enjoying some dark chocolate pre-cleanse.
I should have added up my receipts, but I didn’t. I also shopped for the family while shopping for me. I would say I spent about $100-130. Some of the items will last into week 2, while others will last well into week 3. I plan to get new veggies each week.
Tomorrow I will get up early and have my first cup of warm lemon water with apple cider vinegar and cayenne pepper. After getting my guy off to school I will complete the food prep that will make the week a bit easier. Then I will follow the plan for the day: Meditation, smoothie, tea, pilates, water (3/4 gallon no less), smoothie, snack, water, tea, smoothie, water. Sleep and repeat. (Something like that.)
See you tomorrow………………………..
