Master Cleanse: Day 3 Epic Fail

After dealing with the same nausea, dizziness and migraine from Hades, and after fighting it to the death, I decided to get off the lemonade diet a little short of Day 3.  It was just not going well with my system.   I kept on vomiting and just couldn’t function at work.  So for the sake of my health and the kids, I ate some soup and crackers and called it a day.  Pride kills.  So as much as this cleanse has challenged and pushed me, it has also humbled me.  I accept that my body is damaged goods and just can’t take cayenne pepper, lemons and maple syrup.  I’ll never understand it as I watch @maimailim and C handle the cleanse like pros.  And that’s okay.  It wasn’t the hunger that made me accept the truth, I am not questioning my willpower…it was the hurling and the migraines that made my eyeballs want to pop out and good friends with their concern that finally made me say, okay, it’s time to stop.  Sigh.
