Ohhh...but it gets harder? 13 y
I almost gave in today.
Today was absolutely brutal. It took everything in me not to break my fast. The cravings were almost unbearable. After my walk I took a nap to keep myself from eating. Later I started breaking out in a sweat. I am hoping tomorrow will be a better day. visit the page
Day 4 13 y
Not such a good day.
I woke up this morning feeling a little out of sorts. I didn’t seem to have the energy to get my youngest son ready for school. I had a slight headache and was experiencing some dizziness. My nose keeps getting stuffy and then the mucus starts to drain. This pattern just keeps repeating. It is almost like I have a head cold. I had a coughing fit about an hour ago. Oh...and I am freezing. It is 70 degrees outside and I am wrapped up in my blanket like a burrito. I chose to skip the SWF this morning and drink some more Smooth Move. I had about 5 small BM’s so far. I was disappointed at first ... read more
Starting to feel side affects 13 y
My body is starting to heal itself.
I am feeling super nauseous right now. I have some type of weird film covering the inside of my mouth. I keep touching it with my tounge. It is thicker towards the back. My tounge is only a little white with a thin white strip down the middle. I feel dehydrated even though I am drinking close to a gallon of water a day. My lips are chapped and sore. My back is a little sore too. These side affects are only mildly annoying. It makes me happy to know that my body is starting to benefit from this. It makes it worth it and strengthens my resolve.
I have finished my lemonade already and I dr ... read more
What the fudge? 13 y
Why is my body holding on to salt water? Hmmmm....
Yesterday I weighed myself after the tea ”worked” and I was at 198.2. This morning I weighed myself after the swf and I was 200.1. I waited a few hours and weighed myself again and now I am 202. I know that I am not expelling all of the salt water that I am ingesting. What do I do? Do I just drink the tea as normal tonight and try really hard to drink the proper ratio of salt and water in the morning or do I transition into drinking the laxative twice a day?
BTW, It is 2:19 and I am finally forcing myself to drink 8 oz of lemonade and 16 oz of water. I feel my stomach rumbling, probably ... read more
Day 1, 2 & 3 13 y
I am so much stronger then I ever imagined.
Okay day one was not that bad. Thank God I did the 3 pre-cleanse days! I accidently put 2 tablespoons of cheyenne pepper in my lemonade. I had to make four days worth to even out the cheyenne pepper. The pepper has way to much kick for me. I am going to have to reduce the amount I am taking until I adjust to it. My husband took my son thru the Mc Donalds drive thru while I was in the car. They are both EVIL!!!!! Ohhhhh....it smelled soooo gooood! I had to get out of the car and walk around the shopping area until they were done eating. I didn’t know how I was going to stop mysel ... read more
Pre-Cleanse: Day 3 13 y
My last day before the cleanse
I wasn’t hungry this morning either. I did sleep for 12 hours today and I still feel like I could take a nap. When I finally did drink my orange juice I realized that I was hungry but the hunger felt different. It wasn’t as intense or urgent as the hunger I felt a just a few days ago. i suppose my body is adjusting to less food. My problem is mental. I am used to the ritual of eating food. That is what i miss. I miss fixing a bowl of Raisin Bran in the morning, I miss chewing, I miss the comfort. But those are all habits that I am trying to break.

Pre-Cleanse: Night 2 13 y
Okay....It is definetly betting better
Tonight I feel waaaay better then I did last night. I am not hungry at all. I did have a few moments while I was fixing dinner but I kept reminding myself that I was strong and that temptation is temporary. I know that I cannot let food control me. I have had nothing but juice today. I am tired earlier then usual but hopefully that means I wont feel so tired in the morning. I am totally psyched about tomorrow. It is my last day before I officially start the cleanse. I didn’t walk today because it was raining but I am contemplating adding a two mile walk to my routine while I am cleansing. ... read more
Pre-Cleanse: Day 2 13 y
I think it's getting better
Well, the day is starting off pretty well. I was a little hungry this morning but it passed quickly. I juiced some apples and celery. It is taking me a while to drink it but it keeps me from feeling hungry. I think I am a little better mentally today. My husband and I are going for a walk. I am curious to see how I am going to feel afterward.

Pre-Cleanse: Night 1 13 y
Not much better
So, here it is a quater to midnight and I am wolfing down a grapefruit. I am not going to lie and say that I haven’t been tempted to eat because Lord, have I. I was tempted to taste food while I was cooking. I held fast though. I found that if I concentrate on something other than eating the cravings went away. I did quite a bit of laundry tonight to stop myself from eating. I am going to finish this grapefruit and go to bed. I am preparing myself mentally to deal with a day of nothing but liquids tomorrow. I know that it will be worth it in the end.

Pre-Cleanse: Day 1 early
Okay, I am going to prepare for the master cleanse the next 3 days.
Day 1: Eat all raw fruits and veggies, drink plenty of distilled water.
Day 2: Raw foods, freshly juiced organic veggies and fruit, plenty of distilled water
Day 3: Freshly squeezed orange juice and 2 tbsp of organic grade B maple syrup.
Okay, confession: So far it has been exteremly hard. I have been constantly hungry. I am eating fruit, and very little veggies but I have been nibbling all day. I know that my hunger is mental and not physical but that doesn’t make it any easier. I just slipped off ... read more
introduction 13 y
A little bit about me and my goals.
Today is the first day of the rest of my life. I am embarking on a spiritual/physical/mental journey and I want to share it with all of you. I am going to be starting the Master Cleanse Detox Diet. I am fasting to get rid of all the toxins in my mind, body, and spirit, as well as to give me a better attitude on life as well. I feel like a catapillar who is entering a cacoon so that I can come out a beautiful new butterfly. I believe that through the process of detoxing I hope to get a mind/body/spirit tune-up. Not only will I become healthier physically, my mind will be ... read more
