juice clease, day 2

Day 2 of my juice cleanse has so far been much smoother than Day 1.  I have had only mild bloating so far and very little need to rush to the bathroom.  I'm feeling happy and more clear-headed, though a little sleep deprived....  I never have trouble sleeping, and last night was no different at first, but at 1 am I woke up and could not get back to sleep.  I'd read online that many people have trouble sleeping. 

This morning I started my juices much earlier, having lemon water beginning at 5:45 am and my first juice at 6:15, before my commute into work.  At work I had a splash of yesterday's #6 juice, the vanilla cashew milk, in green tea and two glasses of water.  No headache!  I really love that cashew milk, though I couldn't finish my serving last night -- it was so rich and I felt I needed a little protein boost this morning.  Kelly at Juice Hugger told me this is not cheating, so away we go!

At around 9:00 I started in on my second juice -- the one that yesterday induce all kinds of "detox" activity inappropriate for the workplace.  This time I drank it verrry slowly - over an hour - and alternated with sips of water.  Still no headache and only very slight stomach bloating and movement.

It's now 1:00 and I'm halfway done with my 3rd juice, which is a delicious tomato one that can be drunk warm.   (Yesterday I did the Love Cleanse and today I'm doing the Clarity Cleanse, and tomorrow, I'l do the Happiness Cleanse.  This was suggested by the folks at Juice Hugger as a way to keep the cleanse interesting, and I think it's a great idea.)  It's a thin soup, really, and nice and salty and savory.  A nice change from the others!  I am taking it slowly and again taking sips of water in between, wary after yesterday's experience.
