This morning I woke up with mild headache that resolved after I had half a cup of coffee. I am slowly overcoming my coffee addiction. I am down 3.5 lbs. I'm not hungry because I'm eating lots of whole foods. The early weight loss is just the excess water I was holding and the idea of this cleanse is to feel better, weight loss is secondary.
One thing about a cleanse or any dietary change is you have to plan ahead. I am not the best meal planner at the best of times so planning two or three days ahead is a stretch for me. You have to plan to succeed.
Today my goals were to get back on Twitter and to Tweet, and to work on my physical injuries, accomplished!
You will now see a Twitter button at the top of this page. I also went to my new RMT friend Nicola Carroll.
Nicola does this very cool and interesting treatment called Matrix Repatterning. I will tell you more about it as I learn more.
Day 4 - Mild Headache
On day 4 I woke up with a mild headache so I had half a cup of coffee 30 minutes after my nasty tasting Dandelion extract. Dandelion helps to support the liver which is now working hard to filter out the candida die off and toxins. After breakfast I felt great! I'm still 3.5 lbs lighter and I don't experience hunger, cravings yes, but not hunger.
After lunch of a spicy soup I was craving sugar and coffee big time so I had to brush my teeth and go out with my daughter.
On this day for my life cleanse I wanted to spend 2 hours with my daughter Meredith and not get distracted by my BlackBerry, but I didn't accomplish this. I did hang out with her but I responded to 6 messages while we were skiing! Seriously, thats just silly. I'm going to try this one again but leave the phone at home or in the car. My phone is like junk food for me, out of sight out of mind. I am happy to report that during the afternoon my coffee craving diminished and I didn't feel too tired.
Today's picture is of one of our favourite snacks while on the cleanse. Its homemade guacamole and hummus with Mary's crackers. Mary's crackers are so crunchy we call them "the loud crackers" and they're the only ones I've found that are fine on this cleanse.
