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.
