"Cleanse" or "Day 6 Report"

I've felt really weak today. Kind of a shock since the previous days I've felt quite good and enjoying a really high energy level. It started pretty well...I made it to the gym and did a mile and a half on the elliptical trainer... not much I know...but I was already starting to feel a little wiped.

My favorite part of the gym though was the weigh in. I have dropped another pound. That makes 7 pounds so far. I FEEL so much better which is the reason I'm doing this...but seeing the scale # go down is a terrific perk.

I halved my salt water flush today to see how that felt. That is *the* hardest part of this cleanse. I had read that some people halved their SWF and it worked for them but sadly it didn't seem to do much for it. There wasn't really a FLUSH at all. Okay, tomorrow, full dose.

I spent most of the day at wyckhurst's. We have been doing the cleanse together. We both had a rather weak day today but it was good to spend the day in the company of someone I can chat with about it and compare notes.


A few questions I've gotten during the course of this. As my sister says, I am not google but I'll tackle a few that have come my way.

Q: How long am I doing this for?
A: 10 days plus 4 or 5 days properly coming off it. Some people have been known to go as far as 40 days doing this. I can easily see how people can do that...the biggest hassle is the SWF and boredom. I haven't been HUNGRY per se...but the same thing over and over gets dull.

Q: What is this cleanse exactly?
A: It's been called the lemonade diet or master cleanse. You can find a lot of really good information here:

Q: What am I going to do after?
A: One doesn't do this for a period of time and then go have a steak dinner. You have to carefully prep your system back to having solid food again. Once I'm there I plan on eating as clean as I possibly can. A lot of fruits and vegetables and lean meat. You are what you eat and I want to be made of healthy stuff.
I've been pretty good this year but I need to step it up a notch. No more one a day Dr. Pepper habit and I need to plan my meals better.

Any others?

Off topic but peripherally connected
You had informed your loyal readers that you were using your laptop in the restroom.
What type of laptop do you have?
I am thinking of getting a MacBook (white), and was wondering if you have any thoughts you would like to share on laptops or MacBooks.
Thank you,

I have a little iBook that's running on almost 5 years. Terrific little machine but it's starting to show its age. I highly recommend macs. They JUST WORK.

Ahh. Thank you.
This report is much the same as everyone else's ideas on the subject.
I am a lucky person to have so many knowledgable individuals around me.
I shall join the cult of Mac.
