So it's saturday afternoon and i finally create the time to set up a blog to help myself get through this and better understand the process.
Today is day 6 and i have to say i feel a little weak today. weak in both body and mind. i have had a big week and there's not much rest for this wicked one so who's to blame? ;) i look forward to lying out in the sun in a short while. today though, i don't feel motivated to do much. at the same time, i understand that what i am doing is powerful and can allow myself the time to rest and do nothing at all if that's what i choose.
Writing about my experience is part of it. it was on my list - and i didn't think of blogging until just now - though i had though about sharing my experience so others could possibly benefit.
Day ONE started at 5am - all enthused, i glupped down the SWF - thinking, 'hay, this ain't so bad'. i purchased a celtic sea salt that is quite dark - on recommendation that it is much more palatable. am thankful! i watched the day dawn from a peaceful recliner at the window. i tried to meditate then went back to bed for another few z's. wasn't woken by an urge for the loo and in fact didn't have a bowel movement until i got to work around 11.30am. i walk to work - a beautiful 1/2 hour meander. taught class - i teach bikram yoga. then took class later in the day. was suprised at the energy i had for both classes. i was also suprised at my lack of hunger on this day.
day TWO and te alarm did not wake me, but i got up, drank the salty quart 07:45, squeezed the ju-uice and left for work. i can recall reading - don't trust a fart - so i waited till i got to work and passed the quart 08:45 - very thankful for that piece of advice! i guess the walking really helps. taught class, then took class by myself - massaged my legs and walked home. legs felt great. mental note - massage legs when ever possible - toxins can accumulate here and cause discomfort, stiffness. thankful that i got a ride back to work before teaching the evening class. the class was spectacular - one of those moments when all the stars align and every word is powerful and penetrative. my students came out of the room wowing at how great the class was for them.
a friend took me to the lake and we watched the almost full moon rise and brighten over the hill and reflect her face in the water. this was very special. what great inspiration! arrived home, scrubbed my entire body - including my tongue - which had a good white coating, read and went to bed with a huge smile on my face.
day THREE and i didn't walk after my salty quart... silly - there was no BM (until a little later on - and even then it wasn't the quart, still passing a small amount of fecal matter, very much containing bile - characteristic yellow but some semi-solid none-the-less. classes were ok today though the class i took by myself was not that great. the heating in the room wasn't working properly. a few hunger pangs today - easily satiated with the spicey lemonade.
day FOUR and an early rise along with a stroll to work had my BM right on time. today was a good day. a few hunger pangs - only when i am teaching, and that's ok, beacuse there's no way i can be tempted by food in that room - and a small chug of water of-sets that any way. i have been thinking about different meals i am looking forward to making - is that just torturing myself? i feel ok about it and am still strong enough to do that at the moment. went out for a tea with friends and informed them all about the master cleanse. my skin and hair have become very greasy and a few spots have broken on my forehead.
day FIVE started brilliantly. early rise accompanied by SWF and a stroll down to the creek out my back door. here i sat on a rock in the middle of the creek. fingertips occasionally drifting through the water. i could feel myself becoming grounded - i didn't realise i was so high up in clouds. my BM was right on par.
as i waitied for a friend to pick me up, my front lawn called me to lie upon it. sprawled in the sun, staring at he crisp, blue moring sky i began to giggle and could not stop. my friend arrived to an interesting scene.
the day slowly went down hill and i became very frustrated and almost had a hissy fit. went to a friend's farewell party where people were drinking and eating. i had water. i watched people cut pieces of cheese off the plater and it made me think about my own eating habits. i accompanied my departing friend to meet with others who were out eating. i was tired and a little cranky but made myself go - for her. i got to the table and ordered a peppermint tea. the others were eating so i talked. my stories were a little jumpy as i didn't have a lemonade on hand to bring me back down from the clouds - rather dilerious. ha! entertaining i guess. i was surprised that i didn't really want to eat. i do really want to accomplish this.
day SIX and i woke with a bit of anxiety. in my dream i had scoffed some hot potato fries. i don't know why i did. but it really upset me in my dream and i woke up thinking that i had failed the MC. didn't like that. SWF and walking to work gave me my morning BM and then the class i taugh was another fine one. very enjoyable. i decided to take a day off yoga and came home and had a hot bath instead. epsom salts and a nice home made green clay mask - help draw out all those unwanted oils.
the bath gave me a good sweat and when i got out whilst still warm and sweating, i scrubbed my feet, had a good stretch and massaged my legs.
so it has been a relaxing day and will continue to be....
