DAYS 2, 3, AND 4 OF THE MASTER CLEANSE...
Wednesday, August 10, 2011
Honestly, right now I feel like yuck. But I have a good attitude and am looking forward to seeing more positive things happen with my weight so even though my body feels badly, my mind is in good shape.
Day 2 of the Master Cleanse I did well up until supper. I planned all simple meals this week since I had to cook them all but not eat any. I made frozen pizza for supper (which only happens once every 6 months or so, so you know I was desperate for easy meals!). But it smelled pretty good. And after no food for almost 2 days... I took a good long smell of my daughter's piece. Yum. I was headed down to workout on my elliptical and saw the pizza on the cutting board and... I took a bite. But then I couldn't stop. I ate once piece. It was only about 100 calories. But I had put extra toxins in my body. Grrrrrr. Then later I started craving carbs and my son was eating chex mix in front of me. Yep. Had some of that two. About two large handfuls. I was disappointed in myself, but told myself that the next day would be better.
Day 3 of the Master Cleanse. Woke up feeling good with lots of energy. Nice start to my day. Made my lemonade, got my water ready, did my salt water flush. Ready to go. My friend called and asked if we wanted to meet at McDonalds for lunch so the kids could play. Okay. I can do this. Well, my determination wasn't very strong I guess. I ate probably 10 fries and a bite of ice cream. Ughhhhh! Not nearly as much as the day before, but it was still food, calories, toxins and just more that my system needed to flush out again. I began to wonder if every bite I took was just putting me back at the beginning and then all this was for nothing. I did meet a friend at Starbucks last night and while she had a mocha and a piece of poundcake, I had peppermint tea which I brought along (allowed on the cleanse). That was a good step in the right direction.
Day 4 of Master Cleanse (today). I woke up feeling good again, but had a slight headache. It stayed with me pretty much all day long. I have had my lemonade, but not enough water. I was 100% determined NOT TO EAT A SINGLE BITE TODAY. I did it! Right now I am not feeling very well though (I believe YUCK was how I put it earlier, lol). I have chills right now that are listed as common side effects from the detoxing and I am also having some pain in my lower back sides that make me wonder if I am having a detox reaction in my kidneys.
Anyway, since I made my determined decision at the end of July I have lost 13 pounds. I think I am doing well. I don't know if I will make my crazy goal of 34 pounds by the end of August but I am sure gonna keep on working at it!
