I began doing my update on what has become of my cleanse thus far but everytime I finished a days update, I would be off to the races again so when I finally finished typing and submitted my information, everything was gone - somehow the system logged me off and all the information I had put in was lost.
My statistics are the same for everyday. The only thing changed will be my weight. Well, here goes:
Day 1 - Jan. 19, 2008
Weight: 157.2 (I guess I was expecting to loose something overnight - my bad
SWF: 5:15AM (in 15.....off to the races)..........WOW! is all I can say
That SWF is NO JOKE. I must remember to do this even when I am not doing the MC. I think my daugther could benefit from this flush perhaps on the weekend. Anyone out there have any suggestions for having pre-teens do this MC for probably a weekend only?
The LA is actually quite good and I like the cayanne too, it gives it a little kick. Although I read the instructions on the amount of the syrup, I did not realize that it took so much given that I would make enough for the entire day so I would use half of the bottle. Does anyone know where I can get the Organic Grade B maple syrup less expensive than Trader Joes?
Day 2 - Jan. 20, 2008
Weight: 155 (and going down.....)
I have a built in alarm clock that wont let me sleep past 5:00 a.m. My sister lovingly calls me a crackhead because I stay up late and get up early (even on weekends).
Okay, back to the progress. Now, I know what is meant by butt pee. I had read it on a couple of blogs but I thought it was something someone made up - well all I can say is I am glad I took the week off from work.
So far I have not exhibited any great hunger pangs. In fact, my kids are happier because now they have a stay-home mom for a week. They are eating meals at home every night and I have time to pack lunches in the morning before school (so they have to eat what I give them) The school lunches are not healthy like they to used to be.
I tried to do a lukewarm LA today and that was gross. I will stick to the chilled - it tastes much better.
I have been getting to bed by 10:00 PM on average
Oh, I almost forgot, I wanted to share a funny thing that happened to me today. I had to go out this morning to get more LA because now my sister decided she wanted to try this cleanse as well so we used up the rest of the syrup. It is Sunday so not a lot of things are open early in the morning - I had forgotten. Anyway, I went to Trader Joes and since nothing was open I was just going to read until it opened. Well, it was off to the races and I could not find anywhere to go except for the hospital ER. I came through those doors as if I had someone on a gurney stretcher. I made a bee line straight for the restroom and the weird part is that all the chairs in the waiting area face the bathroom so that everyone has a clear shot of you. Now, I am not usually one who cares about that anyone thinks of me but I have to admit that was a little embarrasing under the circumstances. I was thinking I hope no one remembers my face or there is anyone out there that actually knows me. I would hate to be remembered as the woman to stormed in the ER bathroom and left a moster.
Day 3 - Jan. 21, 2008
Had some cramping today so I actully got up at 4:45AM - nothing happened until my regular time getting up at 5:00AM then off to the races again. My weight today was 153.4
I must be getting used to the SWF. Don't get me wrong, its nasty but it is not as bad as I thought it would be. It reminds me of my childhood when we used to lose teeth and my mom would make us gargle with salty warm water. She would tell us not to swallow any but of course when you tell a 5-8 year old not to do something you can be sure they will do it so we used to actually sneak and make it when she was not around. I do notice that it only takes me 1 to 15 minutes for the SWF to work on me.
I decided to try the limes today - not bad. I had so much energy that I decided to go the gym. Man, I tell you I felt like Forrest Gump today on that treadmill (you know...Run Forrest Run). I normally run for 30 mins. and I can usually do 1 mile. I must have done 2 miles in 30 mins. and that was a real milestone for me.
I do notice that my stomach is going down a lot and I can actully see a two-pack. I am working on the other four. I am started to get the sniffles. I don't know if this is allergies or a head cold.
Day 4 - Jan. 22, 2008
Still plugging away at my daily routine. My weight today was 153 pounds. I did not drink all of my LA. I have not been as hungry so I take drinks when I get a pang. I know I am supposed to drink it but I just have not had the appetite for it. I actually miss food today and have my cravings for chicken and beef tacos with guacamole on the side (I know I spelled it wrong but I did not want to try and find a dictionary and lose my information again - so pardon my spelling if I offend anyone).
I went to the gym again today and incorporated one more exercise into my plan, I started doing lunges in addition to my running and sit-ups. Boy this is going to hurt tomorrow, I just know it.
Day 5 - Jan. 23, 2008
Today I am feeling so bad. I think I have a cold and can't stop sneezing. I am also freezing as I have been for the past 5 days. I could probably make ice with my hands and feet. I am also very sore from my day before workout and I can't breath out of one of my nostrils. I think I will stay in the bed today. My energy level is not great. I weighed myself before I went back to bed and it's reading was 153 again. This is probably because I am not drinking enought LA. I have to increase it but I just don't have the engergy to get out of bed. My sister told me that all my pains and aches is because I have not drank enough.
Day 6 - Jan 24, 2008
Feeling much better today. Back to my old self. Thank goodness. I weighed in at 152 today
Boy am I jazzed about that. I will try and take it easy today and not try and be like Forrest Gump.
The time now is 8:10 AM and I am off to make my morning LA. I will follow up tomorrow.
