Day Six … The Cleanse.

Day 6. I’m not sure I believed I’d get here! I think a huge part of my success (so far) was knowing I had to blog about it each night. 🙂

Day Six Observations:

1) I awoke today with my normal fatigue and desire to lay on Joshua’s floor with his teddy bear as a pillow, but without weakness, intense hunger or cravings for bad food. Hip hip hooray!

2) Because of my renewed energy and lack of weak/hungry feeling, I decided to take a walk with my Mom.

3) Taking a walk was a bad idea.

4) I felt my stomach go empty 15 minutes into the 45 minutes walk. And I almost fainted. Stupid stupid idea.

5) After guzzling a nasty green shake, I felt worse. Sick, stomach cramps, nasty. Blah. Ick. Don’t try this at home–or anywhere.

6) Finally, I felt better. And realized that today was the best of the days so far, as far as hunger, cravings, weakness etc. Yea for day 6!

7) I cheated. I had a bite of bread. My mother in law led me astray by pointing out that is had no preservatives and was all natural. *sigh* I can’t even say it was that amazing. I think it was more the idea of it … though is was soft, and warm, with a crunchy crust. Mmm…. In my head, it was HEAVENLY.

8) On that note, so much of my cravings are in my head!! I’m realizing this!!!

9) I LOVE veggies! They are so incredibly flavorful! I can’t taste this normally because of my taste for chips, cookies and crap. Carrots=amazing! Zucchini=incredible!

10) Glad I did this .. and trying to heed my sister’s wisdom. She said, “I was so excited for Day 7 and then I got up and realized … I still had to do Day 7.” So, I’m trying not to be too excited.

But I am …. 🙂
