The Master Cleanse...bum bum buuuummmm...

Ok, so my daughter has decided to join the Navy. Please don't ask, and yes, I'm devastated but supportive. She needs to lose 15lbs so that she qualifies, and I need to lose like 50lbs just cause I'm chunky. She talked me into doing this alleged "master cleanse" with her for 10 days. Not sure how long I'm going to make it, but effort will be put forward. Here are the basics...

7 1/2 oz water
1 1/2 tbs. grade B maple syrup
1 1/2 tbs. fresh lemon juice
a pinch of cayenne pepper

Drink this concoction along with 8oz of water at least 8 times per day or whenever you're hungry.

The purpose of this cleanse is to clean out your body and prepare it for accepting good and healthy foods. Some people use it to lose a few pounds for a special event or what have you, but it's supposed to be an overall cleanse.

So, for us, it's Day one. I've weighed myself just for the purposes of keeping you updated. I will NOT be sharing my actual poundage, only what if anything is lost lol.

So, heeeere we go!!!!
