Woke up this morning feeling a bit better. Some cramping was still there. The chills came and went yesterday by the way which I forgot to mention. Right now at 11:00 a.m. on day 6, my legs are still sore but feeling better. Mentally and emotionally, I need some relief from the pain.
I’m going to drink water like crazy today. I cleaned the water filter yesterday. I had put lemon in the tank but found they get rather funky. So don’t take that step, just add lemon to the glass of water instead.
Today is also day 6 of my raw food cleanse. That’s going pretty well. I have to admit that I cheated a bit on that. I started putting some raw cashews in my veggie salad about two days ago which set up eating the raw cashews. I guess I’m just really feeling hungry at times. Last night for dinner I fixed a piece of salmon for my husband and had a small piece in my veggie salad. Adding that small piece of protein probably wasn’t too bad.
Overall I’m really pleased with the cleanse and detox. I feel much lighter in one week and it’s obvious that some weight is coming off. That is a great reward for this “jump-start” program. No doubt I’ll keep going on that. I doubt that I’ll go back to coffee after this, even for a small amount. It just doesn’t seem worth it right now; I’ll see how I feel afterwards.
Getting through today will be the problem. It’s the 4th of July holiday weekend so I expect my husband will want to go do something. I’m usually the one talking about getting bar-b-que ribs. I can’t see doing that after a week of raw foods without tearing up my stomach. But I might fall for a bit of fish.
Everything on the coast will be fish and chips I know. We leave by the Pacfific Ocean where the smaller towns always have some type of festival or something on holidays. It’s really a fun thing to enjoy.
I still need to get my green smoothie for the day. That’s a part of this adventure that’s going very well and I’ll start letting you know about that soon.
