7-Day Alkalizing Cleanse with SuperGreens: Day 1

I have been thinking to do a SuperGreens cleanse for the past few weeks, and today is the day to start it.

Why today, instead of yesterday or tomorrow?
Because I can feel myself getting sick and tired, but mostly because I have stopped telling myself excuses not to do the cleanse...

"I'm too busy..."
"I'm too stressed and will forget and eat solid food anyways..."
"I have no will power..."
"I will miss my food..."
"I won't be able to socialize with friends..."
"I will have to run all over the place for lunch time looking for a juice bar..."

These and other things are basically little lies I have been telling myself to let myself off the hook and ignore my health. But I am confronting them as the lies they are...
They simply aren't true.

So, when I woke up today, I drank a liter of water mixed with a dash of lemon juice (to increase its alkalinity), three small scoops of SuperGreens (the ultimate alkalizing food) and three small scoops of Organic Hemp Protein Powder (because I plan to lift weights today and can use the protein and fiber).

I also had a cup of delicious coffee--not exactly alkalizing, but I plan to wean myself off the coffee, or at least to decaf coffee.

After I already started, I remembered there are helpful suggestions and audio recordings to help you through a cleanse on the InnerLight website.

I'll check those out later today, but here is the link for now: 7-Day Cleanse
