Good morning Lemonheads!
Wow - DAY 8! I'm half way through!
Trouble sleeping last night - really stuffed up and things on my mind. I'm hoping the stuffiness is a detox symptom. My first movement this morning (before the SWF had a chance to really go through yet) was pretty phlegmy. Yuck - but I think good to get stuff out of my system!
Was so nice at a small gathering yesterday to have someone really interested in the cleanse instead of looking at me funny and listening in a skeptic manner. My husband commented that he likes that I do this and that I usually seem brighter and glowing after doing the cleanse!
Planned a dinner out with friends for the 17th, which will be my first real food day ... and most likely will just get a yummy salad. Yeah - so excited for that! In the mean time I'm going to yet another large party on Saturday which will be a potluck full of great foods - but I"ll just remember how amazing that salad will taste on the 17th and how great I will feel!
Oh, I had a dream that I got on the scale and had finally gotten down below 140 (I think the scale said 137). In the dream I kept getting on the scale over and over to make sure it was reading correctly. What a great feeling in that dream! I'm still over 10 pounds away from that goal - but WHEN I get there, it will be the first time in decades (probably since having my second child who is now 17). I don't know how old all of you are, but I'm 51 and let me tell you that even a pretty active an athletic person like me can pack on the pounds so quickly as the decades pass. SO frustrating. Since turning 50 I feel like I'm trying so hard to eat less and eat better, only to just barely maintain weight (and sometimes still put more on). Gotta accept this change and develop new habits. One thing I really am mindful of after the cleanse is really enjoying every single bite of food ... truly savoring it ... and try not to just eat mindlessly without even noticing the food (and therefore stuffing more into my face).
My weight stalled as of this morning's weigh-in. This is normal for me, but I'm going to really down alot of water today - to help flush out this phlegm (with toxins) and clear things up!
little piper - I'm so impressed! For me this cleans is SO mental and I always have to decide the number of days before I start. I don't think I could go day by day and just "see how it goes" and keep going as long as I can. You are an inspiration!!!
baddison - I love your energy and "Yay Me!". Awesome! and Happy Mothers Day coming up!
Keep posting, all - it's so helpful to know we're all together in this!!
Make it a great day,
