I will recall the past seven days with as much accuracy as I can.
Day 1, Monday: I had actually decided to juice Monday & Tuesday and start the water fast on Wednesday. I decided to just go for it. I thought about food all day, but my energy level was higher than on the days I eat. This was a nice beginning, as I knew some of what was to come... My sleep was okay. Very vivid dreams already, and a little tossing. All in all not too bad other that the immense desire for food!! Especially while cooking for the kiddos. My weight upon starting was somewhere around 117-120? Should have checked before starting.
bty... I am 5'4" and have a very small frame. If I gain five lbs everyone notices, same the other way around. much of my weight is in my tummy. I'm sure stress is a factor there. Anyway, I don't think I'm fat, but I do have too much fat on my body...it's at like 22%.
Day 2: The headaches begin. Still a very strong desire for food. Some weakness sets in during the afternoon. I say "I'm not feeling too good" to my employer, scared that a day soon might be spent calling in. Satyed up a little late, maybe 10pm (I am early bed, early rise) Sleep was fitful, very vivid dreams, constant waking. I believe I checked my weight this eve, and was below 115. Again, I'm not sure what I was at start.
Day 3: The headache gets worse. Emotional. Definitely worse when I'm lying down. That goes for the lower back (or kidney, I'm not sure) pain. Hungry all day...and that is an understatement. The lightheadedness begins to kick in, and the fatigue worsens. CLEANSE body CLEANSE!!!!! I am sure I had a cup of green tea on this day. Partially in hopes of it helping me feel better, partially because I was FREEZING. This is common for me. I hold my hands around the hot mug and it helps tremendously. I'm irratable. Again playin "sick" as I am afraid of what tomorrow will bring. All I want to do is sleep. Bedtime was usual. Fitful and vivid. Back pain growing worse when I lie down. Makes it very hard to get to sleep. Knees, too. I will add that I have pre-existing knee pain.
Day 4: A little improvement from day 3. Very emotional. Especially at bedtime. I had a little more energy, but not much. Lightheaded when getting up, or walking too much. Exercise? Oh no. Just some light stretching and walking. Green tea again today. I'm over the "playing sick" even though I desire sleep during the day badly! Highlight of the day...it was BEAUTIFUL outside, so during my lunch hour I went to the park and walked in the woods around a lake for 25 mins, and meditated for 25 mins. My motivation grew. Sleeping, back pain still preventing me from sleeping easily. It does subside after a few hours. I keep waking up around 5-ish needing to pee... getting up makes it hard to fall back asleep..aarrggghhh! My tummy has been rumbling. So far no white tongue out of the ordinary or very bad breath or beakouts...all in good time. Oh, and my eyes are shiney and clearer. My weight here was maybe 112?
Day 5: TGIF!!!! I simply cannot wait for two days off! Overall not a bad day. Back pain still there, sleepiness, lightheaded. I had rashes on my upper arms I noticed after my shower. I was actually kind of excited about thatt. DETOX :) Tummy still rumbling. I still want food, but it's not hard anymore prepearing it for the kids. In fact, they are getting healthier foods and portions. I am preparing it with care and delight. I have always lovesd cooking, but the art in it disappeared a while back. I feel it returning, and it's lovely. My thirst has slowly been growing stronger and I use water as mu crutch. When I feel sick, hungry, uncomfortable, I'm drinking more. Lips becoming drier. Back pain still present, especially in bed. Dreams vivid. Waking up too early to pee... Oh, and I did an enema. Well, it was one of those 99 cent water ones. Maybe 8 oz? Dunno. Nothing much came out.
Day 6: Saturday! Well, up and going at 6am. Took car to shop, did laundry, home to make lunch, and....naptime. Oh yea. Then cleaning, more car repair, visitors, etc. Very busy day. Did more stretching before bed. More pain lying down. Funky taste has hit my mouth. Alkaliney? Highlight of the day: BM!!! All that rumbling wasn't without cause. Nothing funky. fairly normal, just a little dark. ew!
Day 7: Planned to sleep in. Had to pee. Upon returning to my bed I noticed the clouds in front of the yet to rise sun. Irresistable. Took a short walk. Exhilarating. Til I made it home. Head hurt from increased blood flow. Lightheaded. Laid down til my son awoke. Another busy day. Don't know what got into me. Did some mega cleaning! And I didn't really feel great. Even kinda lightheaded doing it. Guess my motivation outdid my lack of energy. No nap today! (pout) Oh well. Another BM...mostly gas, watery & some mucous, smelled AWFUL! Yay for detox! Tummy still rumbling, though. Pain in back at bedtime, although my knees don't hurt as bad at bedtime.
Oh, and weight now around 110. Same on day 6.
