A Marvelous Cleanse?

After a fun Thanksgiving holiday spent in West Virginia, it’s time to get back to work. Travels and fresh starts are most definitely causes for a Marvelous Monday.

Marvelous is celebrating Thanksgiving with loved ones.

Marvelous is a delicious seafood feast at Legal Seafoods. The lobster was on point!


Marvelous is a cleanse. Okay, not so marvelous, but it’s a necessity every once in a while, right?

I’m doing the lemon water with cayenne pepper and maple syrup cleanse. I actually did this cleanse for 24 hours last year here. We’ll see how many days hours I last this time around. ;)


Have you tried the lemon water cleanse? What are your thoughts on liquid cleanses?

    Oh man, let me know how that goes! I don’t know if I could do it while I’m working. I’d just become quite cranky but I have thought about it!

    I’ve never heard of that cleanse but I don’t think I have the willpower in me. Maybe in the past, but now this girl needs solid real food or I’m a cranky and crabby girl. Nobody wants to see that happen! :P

    Haven’t heard of that cleanse – but i do think occasional juice cleanses CAN have a purpose – when you need a “kick start” back to healthy-habits-mode … As long as the cleanse doesnt make one so cranky, hungry & weak that it causes you to end up binging!

    Keep us posted!

    I have actually tried that cleanse and barely lasted a day (or maybe it was one day?) All I remember was that it was disgusting and actually made me dislike lemon water for several years. I believe a juice cleanse or smoothie cleanse could be a good thing but maybe for 3-5 days maximum. I’ve heard mixed reviews on the benefits of a cleanse (I’ve heard that our liver takes care of the things we think we are cleansing out of our system); however, I think it is a wonderful way to restart a healthy lifestyle after an indulgent weekend or time period :)
