Day 8

And then my mom called...

2/1/09 10:30 a.m. Ė Well here I am on day 8, and itís hard for even me to believe that I havenít eaten in 7 days. Again the SWF was no problem and Iím just waiting for it to do its thing. I think I may have made a crucial error though. Iíve been so focused on the fact that Iím getting closer to finishing this cleanse, that all I can seem to think about is how much longer I have until the end. Yes itís only 3 days, but in real time, if all you do is think about how much time is left, it tends to drag on. I really need to try and distract myself today, and not think about time in terms of finishing this cleanse. Iím on my own today; my boys are with their mother, so this may prove to be a challenge. I need to be creative in inventing activities to keep my mind occupied but Iím sure Iíll think of something. Maybe Iíll take a drive or hit some golf balls, either way my work is cut out for me today.
Oddly enough, the one thing that I miss the most, while on this cleanse, is the freedom to see anyone or go anywhere. Not that my world ever revolved around food, but it is a normal part of a healthy social life. This Superbowl Sunday, for example, I decided not go and visit my friend. There just would have been too much temptation, and frankly I donít care that much about football to put myself through that. Usually when I go to a Superbowl party Iím not even watching the game, Iím off to the side talking to my friends and enjoying their company and the food.

7:00 p.m. Ė Oh man, I just had the conversation that I had been dreading. My mom called and asked me what Iíd like to do tomorrow for my birthday. At first she suggested going out to dinner, so I said ďWell uh, we donít have to go out for dinner, thatís not necessary.Ē Her next suggestion was to have the family over for cake and ice cream, so again I said ďWell, we could have them over, however Iím not going to be eating any cake or ice creamĒ and then she blew me away and said ĒOh youíre not eatingÖare you doing some kind of a cleanse or something?Ē I searched franticly for any sign of sarcasm, and found none. First, I didnít think that she even knew what a ďcleanseĒ was, let alone be able to recognize someone whoís on one. Sheís not what you would call with it, or even mildly informed but I guess I stand corrected. So I said ďYeah I am, how did you know?Ē and she replied ďOh, well I donít know, I mean if youíre not eating then maybe youíre doing one of those cleanses thingiesĒ bizarre. Well as Iím typing this she called again asking about arrangements, and I got the feeling that she felt I bit frustrated as she was going to have to work around my strange non-eating experience. She sounded a little irritated; now thatís the mom Iím used to. It reminds me of a friend of mine. When her mother found out that she and her sister were becoming vegetarian, she had a difficult time adjusting because so many of their family gatherings were revolved around having dinner. Now instead of making beef or ham, she needed to be aware that 2 out of her 3 children werenít eating meat. Not only that but their friend, me, was also not eating meat. She doesnít respond well to change, but she reached deep within herself and decided to make macaroni and cheese. It was very good and she seemed to be happy that we were happy.

10:25 p.m. What a bizarre evening. About 8 oíclock I started to feel really depressed and was really feeling tempted to eat. I just wanted to be done with this cleanse so bad, I didnít care one way or the other. So I was making some lemonade and, of course Iím in the kitchen, I started taunting myself. I said, ďYou know, you could just eat a piece of bread, its right there, itíd be very easy and so deliciousĒ I had to get out the kitchen and talk myself out of eating, scary! In Glickmanís book he describes days 2-3 and day 7 as major detox days, and that this is when the majority of people seem to quit. He says that you can bet on experiencing major detox symptoms, anything from boredom and hunger to irritability and depression. Well funny thing is that for me my worse day was day 4, and here I am on day 8 feeling really tested. Maybe Iím a day behind, damn because I hate being late.
Well I made it another day, thanks, in no small part, to the love and support of my friends and family. I suppose that I should be ashamed of myself for thinking that they would be anything other than supportive. Iím going to put myself on a time out after writing this. Iím feeling great, despite the fact that not more than 3 hours ago I almost quit; thatís another testament to the power of the mind. I know that the despair and cravings that I was feeling were detox symptoms and Iím glad theyíre gone. Tomorrow should be a great day, not only will I be on day 9 but itíll be my birthday, happy birthday to me.
