Woo hoo! Day 10 coming to a close! I've been feeling grumpy today - and I think lately in general. Not sure if it is the cleanse or just normal annoyances.
I went out to run some errands today and was looking at some ziploc bags at the store - the picture of cupcakes on the ziploc box surfaced a huge craving. I had to put down the baggies and checkout quick so I could get home before I did something I would regret
On a not so lovely note, but worth noting since removing toxins is what the cleanse is all about:
I haven't had a lot of bowel movements on this cleanse. This evening, I suddenly had to go the bathroom, and it was different than the normal runny/flakey-ish bms. It was solid. And it was floating. It was a long worm like thing. I'm almost positive it was a parasite worm or something like that. It did not have the texture of a bm at all. Or maybe it was a piece of something stuck on the lining of my intensines. Either way, it isn't anything I've ever seen before and I was a little disturbed. To think that type of thing is inside me - yuck!! The good news is that it is gone now. Hope there isn't too much more like that in there.
So, I really want to eat. Who doesn't?
It's Day 10 so technically I could break the cleanse tomorrow and do OJ for a couple of days. But I think I'm going to do the lemonade for at least one more day. I figure I don't have to decide right now. The nice thing about being past the 10 day mark is that you can end whenever you like. So I'll take it one day at a time. I'll probably decide after I weigh in tomorrow.
- Sorry to hear about the terrible hunger pangs. I have found that the hungrier I am, the more weight I am losing. But not sure if that is the case with you or not. Are you breaking the cleanse for 2 days with OJ only according to the book? Not to disappoint, but you may not be able to eat quite yet
Although I have had a whole orange here and there along with the OJ while breaking the cleanse - just so I could actually EAT something! Great job making it through the 10 days! Are you glad you did it? Do you feel different?
- I feel for you - it is REALLY hard to stay on the cleanse when there area lot of family events and the like. I have fortunately been able to avoid those scenarios for a couple of weeks. I just moved to a new city and don't know a lot of people. And those people that I do know, I'm scheduling dinners and stuff with for after I'm done with the cleanse. For me, I just can't take stopping before I get to my goal. I'm sick of getting close but not quite there. If not now, when? Really? When? That is what I ask myself. It does take a lot to self motivation to get through this!
My last SWF was a few days ago when I gained the weight. I don't think I'll be doing anymore, but we'll see.
I don't know anything about lady issues - except that my period came earlier than expected. I guess the flow is lighter, too, now that I think about it. It just started on Sunday so it's hard to say much more now.
Congrats all on finishing Day 10!! Stay in touch if you keep going. If you break the cleanse, I'd be curious about your experience with that, what you ate, etc.
