I couldn't decide If I wanted to do a 28 day or a 30 day cleanse, so I did a modified 30 day cleanse, classic indecisiveness! The evening of the 28th day I went to a gathering with friends, okay I'll admit that I'm a Scrapbooker, and the snacks were yummy. I brought an extra digestive enzyme and indulged in some fresh fruit salsa and chips but managed to pass on dessert. The really hard part for me was avoiding the candies, I love candy but it doesn't love me. Would I wake up with a headache if I indulged? I really didn't want to find out and I think I'm finished with late night candy. After you finish a cleanse like this you really need a plan for how you'll finish and how you'll incorporate what you've learned about yourself and what foods work for you. I am planning to follow The Wheat Belly next but Dennis was just so happy to be finishing that he made plans for a sushi feast.
Now, I have learned that a sushi feast following a cleanse is NOT a good idea. I already knew that I should slowly introduce more food but I wanted to go along with Dennis and I wanted sushi. I was fine that night but the next morning I had a troubled tummy, cramps, bloating and a general unwell feeling but by the afternoon I was fine. I'm still working on the small projects around the house as 30 days wasn't nearly enough time to get my act together, baby steps :-).
We finally went to the stone place and picked out a top for a beautiful cabinet we had made several months ago. I wanted to find an environmentally friendly solution, Dennis wanted rock, so that's my excuse for why it took me so long to make this final decision! For the kitchen we will look for a different option.
I'm still working away at my accounting but I now have the help of my friend Sylvia Cook, yippee! Check out her services at Making Sense.
My next step is to write this cleanse as a proper blog, so please look for it and join. Once I finish publishing all the old posts then I will get to work on The Wheat Belly Blog. Thanks for following, to be continued, because our health is worth it.
