Pop: I only have two more days to go and have selected my favourite juice of all time: lemon, water, agave nectar and cayenne pepper. It’s delicious and it’s what you would drink if you were on the Master Cleanse/Lemon Detox diet. It might not sound exciting, but it’s like homemade lemonade with a kick. The only thing that would make it even better would be vodka. But that would be wrong, no? Beyonce drank this stuff for 14 days to prepare for her role in Dreamgirls and lost nine kilos. Surely I can make it through five days. I don’t want to be bootylicious, I want my booty to fit into the jeans I just bought at the sass and bide sample sale. I start singing “One Night Only” from the Dreamgirls soundtrack in my head, but change the lyrics to “Two days only! Two days only!” I’m nearly done!
Fab: The morning juices aren’t cutting it today, all I can taste is grass again. I’m cranky and hungry but keep on sipping 'til I can sip no more. I nibble on almonds to help get me through this difficult day. The whole office is making fun of my juice meals, and although I admit to being hungry, I’ve never felt better physically. I also have to point out that my eczema (which flares up on my legs in cold weather) has been stable all week, which surprises me. Could it be the detox?
See you tomorrow for the final instalment. Same time, same place.
