About a week ago my 3-day cleanse from Kaeng Raeng arrived. Since I knew I would be going to vacation I decided to hold off on using it-I mean, I wanted to be able to enjoy my vacation, right? And enjoy I did, frequently eating and drinking items I save for cheat days. Faithful readers will know that I try to avoid animal-based products, baked goods, and generally try to maintain a vegan diet. I rarely drink. Of course, these little “guidelines” were largely ignored in preparation for the upcoming event. I present the evidence below.
My boyfriend and I shared a dessert called Oreo Madness at Friday’s. I don’t even want to know the calories.
I’ve yet to see a veggie burger on the “fit and trim” menu at a restaurant. Sort of telling. And who eats any kind of burger without fries?
Gift to whomever can guess what is in this glass. Hint? Not just pineapple juice.
This black bean veggie burger was so good that I almost keeled over and died. I forgot to ask for no cheese.[/caption] Yeah, self restraint wasn’t a big part of my vernacular this week. But I still ate some healthy things too.
A Peanut Butter Protein Shake-the healthy alternative to vanilla and peanut butter ice cream.[/caption] I also continued my usual routine at the gym, as well as doing some physical recreation.
And then it became clear we were straight up rock climbing. I was terrified!
When I look back on the week I feel as if I actually maintained some sort of balance-for someone who was letting herself off the hook, as they say. But I’m still more than happy to be cleansing now and getting back to my routine. I couldn’t eat another veggie burger if you paid me.
Let me know how you get ready for a cleanse. Do you take that opportunity to eat whatever you want or do you still stick to your routine? How about when on vacation?
Two weeks ago I wrote a post about my failed attempt to do a juice cleanse. At the end of the post-you should read it-I called out to all juicing and cleansing companies to reach out to me if they had a line they wanted me to review. A day or so later I was contacted by Kaeng Raeng, a vegan,gluten free cleansing company.
I’m going to be reviewing it next week towards the end of my vacation. I figure a week of debauchery will include some unhealthy activities-like sugar desserts-so I’ll really need a cleanse. I didn’t have groceries in the house for a good week and a half, so I’m feeling fairly svelte. Being broke can do wonders for a girl’s figure! But seriously, I really want to clean out my system, and curb some of my cravings for junk. Am I the only person who craves chips? I think it’s the crunch factor.
Kaeng Raeng is far cheaper in comparison to other juice cleanses and even one of the author’s of Skinny Bitch loves it. I’m super excited to try it, so I’ll let you know how it goes. I sort of want to start the cleanse tomorrow, but I leave for vacation on Friday, and I feel like I’ll be going out to party that night.
What do you guys think? Start cleanse tomorrow or next week?
