One of the hardest times I have staying on a cleanse is when I’m in a social situation. Yesterday I helped a friend celebrate his birthday by eating ice cream. So instead of saying I can’t celebrate with you because I’m restricting sugar from my diet I decided to simply start my cleanse over. If I had been further along this journey I would have begged off. Since I was only five days into the cleanse it wasn’t a huge sacrifice.
My taste buds loved every lick of that ice cream. But my body was totally thrown off-balance as a result. It was such a reminder of why I am getting off of sugar in the first place. I still feel the effects of it over 24 hours later in my system.
