beauty guinea pig part 3: in which i cleanse
i'm a bit of a junkie. a beauty junkie. and both in bed and in life, i always say i'll try anything once. this series details the spa/betterment/prettying procedures i've had the good fortune to experience. and the ones i'd rather cut myself than do again.
so kate's wedding is on the 23rd. and i've decided i'd like to lose 10lbs in the next 10 days. and to do that, i'm trying the master cleanse.
basically, my diet consists of lemonade and lemonade only. today is day two. yesterday went swimmingly but i often will go a whole day without eating. i just sometimes get busy and forget, which sounds ridiculous, but i more than make up for it with the copious amounts of french fries i consume in a month. not to mention the near constant eating out that i do.
so far i've learned two things: 1.) drinking salt water is gross and 2.) cayenne is more spicy than i thought.*
i foresee a reasonable amount of crankiness. i'm looking at a bag of plantain chips and wondering whether just two chips wouldn't kill me. i really really like food.
the only good thing about this is the timing. a lot of my friends are out of town this weekend so i hopefully won't be pestered to do a lot of socializing.
i plan to read the moyers book i started last month and to finally crack open gore's new book (which has been collecting dust since it came out).
all with a zen attitude and a whole lotta lemonade.**
