Great advice and thanks cj. I did start exercising on the 11th day and have done some each day since. Yesterday, I went for a one hour bike ride in the park and it felt wonderful. Other days, I either do very very light weight training or treadmill for just 15 minutes. Today, I hope to go to the Y for 45 miinutes of lap swimming. Exercise is a big part of my life now and definitely contributes to a general sense of well-being. After all, in addition to all the other benefits, doesn't it realease those 'feel-good' chemicals in the brain?
Up until 2 years ago I pretty much was a high sugar, high fat, hi carb-o-holic, but I have begun to make many changes and since visiting here, I can see I need to make alot more. One thing, I think I am going to buy an attractive salad sized plate and put my dinner on that, because this fast is teaching me to be happy with really small portions. I have a fabulous blender so I think I might be able to make juice in it. Fruits, veggies and nuts will definintely be a big part of my routine.
My marriage is not what it needs to be, but we are working on it. This 'whole thing' is not very sad as you put it. It may seem that way to you from the limited information you see here. It's hard (and sometimes unnecessary) to convey all that is happening in our lives. There are some very positive and wonderful things going on - one of these is this cleanse I am experiencing and I look forward to continued growth in that area. (I'm going to start the Bowel Cleanse
in conjunction with this Master-Cleanse
on Monday........ee gads!). My life becomes richer every day as a continue to enjoy a wonderful relationship with my son and my husband and I are communicating after years of trouble. I am involved in a phenomenal bible study and coming from the black empty void of months and months of depression, all of these bright rays of hope and joy are a welcoming breath of fresh life for me.
Thanks for your input, I really appreciate your advice and am already putting it into action.
