Master Cleanse Day 9
I started out the day doing really well, smiling, talking to people, feeling energetic, moving (light) furniture. I was a little unfocused during the class session because I didn't time my drinks very well.
During theses 2 class sessions, the teacher uses a lot of examples revolving around food. I'm like UGH! But once I had my lemonade I felt better. Garrison thought we should make our drink concentrate and mix it up during the break. I told him I didn't think that was a good idea because I just didn't want people asking about the cleanse and getting distracted from the material being taught at the class. So instead we brought bottles of pre-made lemonades. You're really NOT supposed to do that but we had to be practical. The funny part is that all since we were cleansing and just having the bottles with us, people were asking us questions about it. 'DOH! That's people getting distracted and not focusing on the word being taught...
Oh well. We've found that it's something that people can do to get healing and deliverance so it was good that we shared with them what we were doing and how it could benefit THEIR life. There's one guy who has had some health issues. He was in and out of the hospital but no one could figure out what was wrong with him. If he did this cleanse, imagine how much better he would feel!
After I got back, I was feeling a little lightheaded and tired. I took my herbal tea at about 1:30pm and it kicked in about 5pm. I felt like crap. All I wanted to do was lay down. I must have run to the bathroom 12 times. But not much came out. Sometimes nothing. I'm thinking "Am I done? Is this it?" but I still felt awful so maybe I should keep going. At some point I finally got up and felt better. There's no way I'm dealing with that at work so I didn't drink the tea at night.
Now it's the morning of day 10 and I couldn't be more excited!! I'm not taking ANY laxative until I get out of work. Well maybe I could drink some tea around 4pm. Then will probably do my SWF when I come back for one last flush of the colon before easing my way out of the cleanse and back into normal eating.
Ah yes. This morning's weigh-in was 5 pounds less than Day 1. Good news?? As long as I can keep it off.
