Day 2: January 8th...How did your first day go?
Howdy y’all! How did day 1 go? Are you feeling tired? Cranky? Energized? Giddy? Let us know and talk to your fellow cleansers here on the forum!
Days two and three are generally reported to be the most difficult days of any cleanse. Here are some tips to keep you pushing on:
- Drink water
Although you are constantly drinking fluids during this cleanse, it is very important to remember to drink water. Many of the 7-day Cleanse NutriBlasts have diuretic properties—which eliminate water from the body along with toxins from your organs. To keep your body hydrated, we recommend drinking 16 oz (2 cups) of water with each of your NutriBlasts.
- Exercise (with) Caution
The cleansing process uses a huge amount of energy and your body will be running on less fuel than it is accustomed to, so we recommend limiting exercise this week. Save the spinning, running, CrossFit, and P90X workouts for another time, and opt instead for light activity like walking, leisurely bike rides, gentle yoga, and possibly Pilates. Be sure to stop any activity if you begin to feel fatigued or lightheaded.
- Rest Up
As mentioned previously, you might be very fatigued at this point of the cleanse. Don’t fight it! To truly take care of your body, it is important to respect your limitations. Tune into to your body. Go to bed if you’re tired. Sneak in a catnap on your lunch break if necessary. In a day or two, you’ll feel so energized that a little temporary sleepiness will be well worth it!
