Day One: So far, so good!

I didn't make it to the gym this morning. I did spend some time in the bathroom with my guts feeling knotty. OW OW OW. Dang, that tea the night before was EFFECTIVE. Suzanne says that it doesn't bother her so much but dang...it just twists me up.

It was bad enough that even after several successful bits o' time spend in the bathroom (how much detail do you want folks?) I didn't do the salt water flush until after 10 in the morning.

I had been hoping it might be sort of like broth...but no. Just salt...water.

Bad...but not "gag me" bad. It was best to just chug it down, try not to think about it and then brush my teeth. Gah.

My first batch of lemonade I realized I had forgotten the cayenne so not too bad. I peeled the lemon and put it all in the blender with a wee bit of the peel. Pretty yummy! I haven't really been hungry all day which is good...nor do I have a caffiene headache which I've been dreading. I suspect tomorrow will be tougher.

My second batch of lemonade I think I ODed the cayenne...but I did manage to drink it all. It's an interesting feeling drinking it down and feeling my ears warm up on the INSIDE.

I'm done with the lemonade for the day. I've sipped some peppermint tea (heaven!) drunk a liter or so of fresh spring water (YAY) and naturally have spent more time in the bathroom.

I *feel* pretty good. Alert, strong...not sluggish at all. I made it to the gym for lunch and did a quick 2 miles on the elliptical trainer. My legs are still stiff from the 5K so warming them up is good.

Since I've been home I've garbage sacked my drawers and my closet. I feel as long as I'm purging my body I'm going to do the same with my environment and mind and soul.

I'm trying to stay busy...at least until Heroes is on. Trying to avoid the evening/bored munchies.

I read your posts on this and then scurried off and read like eight different accounts on it. It is interesting and perhaps I should try it. I've reached a point where I have to do SOMETHING.

Yeah, there's a lot of good information on it out there! Let me know what you think and when you want to start! RRARR!

I think it might be a good idea for the week leading up to starting Weight Watchers again.

I am fascinated in this report; as I already discussed with your sister, this is all a process that, on the surface, seems to carry no little appeal to my own life. Reports such as these are, therefore, of great interest to me.

So: Thanks.

Good luck. More holiness give you--more strivings within--more freedom from earth stains--as described in the lyrics of the hymn.
