Day 7 – Nutritional Cleanse (pre-cleanse phase)
Well today I lived through not having coffee and sweets with my walking/running group this morning. And I lived through a full day of just veggies. And thankfully nobody invited me to a Super Bowl party because the beanie weenies (or whatever) would have been tempting.
The further I get from junky food, the easier it is to resist it. I’m just a few days into this new eating routine, but it’s getting easier. I didn’t even miss not drinking coffee this morning. Seriously.
Tomorrow we start the real deal – just vegetable broth and green juice. I can have as much as I want but that’s the menu. You might be thinking “she’s nuts.” And maybe I am, but time will tell.
I think my body is going to love having all my cells bathed in pure nutrients. In fact, my body told me that today. Before the cleanse started I did a mental scan and made a list of body issues I want to heal including dry thinning hair, dry skin, brittle nails, cloudy eyes, mucous-y and achy muscles. My tongue has been feeling weird too. It’s hard to describe–dry and a bit numb.
As this cleanse continues, I’ll be monitoring these symptoms. How my body likes all this good food will be revealed as I get a few more days of nutrition under my belt. I’ll keep you posted but for now I’m OK!Print This Post |
