Day 5 - Fun with Fractions

Discovered a great new drink last night: Pom Wonderful pomegranate juice. I watered it down because it's very concentrated and like all fruit juices high in sugar. But with all the good stuff you're getting in there, it's worth it. Polyphenol anti-oxidants to fight free radicals, vitamin C for collagen and muscle health, Vitamin K for blood coagulation, Potassium for lower blood pressure and strong bones, iron for the production of hemoglobin, and even fiber to help reduce bad cholesterol and maintain digestive regularity. Always lovely to discover a healthy new drink on a cleanse.

My first Friday and Saturday nights are over. That's always a big milestone. It's actually been the easiest and most pleasant cleanse I've taken so far. I'm not sure if the timing has anything to do with it, but I do know that cleanses get easier with each cycle. This one, however, has proven it to me beyond the shadow of a doubt.

But if you're flagging, I've found that it's fun to "fraction" your way through your cleanse. After day 2, you're 1/14th of the way through. After day 4, you're 1/7th of the way through. After day 7 you're, 1/4 of the ... well you get the point. You'll notice how quickly you're actually doubling your accomplishment. Once you start getting to 1/2 and 3/4, it really gets exciting. You never had this kind of fun in algebra class.
