This is all new to me and my intent in keeping this blog is to share with you my ups and downs, pitfalls, and what I'm learning. I became aware of the master cleanse a few years ago, attempted it back then and failed. What particularly interested me was how the desire for certain "bad habbits" would melt away. Let me also say that I am 47 years old, been a musician, work daytime hours at a bar, have a grown daughter, lost my dear sweet boy to a health issue a few years ago, live in a very rural area, and lost my drivers license due to two drunk drivings in under 5 years.
I'll go into that some more later but for now I want to start out by saying what I've done so far. I attempted the cleanse on Tuesday May 19, 2009. I brought peppermint oil to work and used it on my lips and around my nose (it is said that peppermint will help curb hunger cravings). I went most of the day until I got home from work and ate dinner....and boy did I eat. But I did concentrate on eating really healthy foods.
On Wednesday I did great in the morning but evening was not so good again. I started drinking about 5:00pm and told myself I really should eat something. Then I kept drinking into the night. The next day (Thursday) I got up and thought I really should eat something cuz I was really feeling rough! But I still concentrated on a healthy breakfast. That morning at work, my boss, who is a drinker herself, said I smelled like booze big time and made a big production of it. I was really embarassed and told her she was probably smelling the peppermint oil I was using. She agreed that was probably it. I ate like crap the rest of the day and I couldn't stop thinking how my boss made me feel.
So far can you see the insanity??? I am determinded to make changes in my life! They say that insanity is....doing the same things over and over and expecting a different result. So I keep trying and will not quit.
By Thursday night I found myself coming down with a cold. Friday I prayed for God to help me. Maybe I should have kept praying all day because I still failed to complete the fast but as the day progressed, my cold symptoms were mild and I wonder if it was the master cleanse "lemonade" that helped. PLEASE LOOK UP MASTER CLEANSE ON CUREZONE IF YOU DON'T KNOW THE FORMULA.
Today is Saturday and I stayed in bed and rested until about 2:00pm. I started out with the salt water flush since I didn't work today....and it works. I got so hungry again by about 4:00 that I began to eat again...started with healthy nuts and went to other things....but still...kept it pretty healthy. This cold has really not been able to really kick my ass. I'm still drinking the lemon, maple syrup, and cayenne pepper mixture. But since I've eaten a bit, I keep eliminating the maple syrup and just drinking lemon, water, and cayenne pepper.
Well Folks, tomorrow is another day. I don't plan on doing anything for the memorial day weekend. There are so many things I would like to do...yard work, etc. but I will get there. Right now I feel a bit run down. But I DO plan to attempt the master cleanse again tomorrow.
Stick with me....feel free to comment it you wish. Please don't beat me up for the drunk driving. It was a year ago and I have already beat myself up for that enough and so has the law. I am hoping you will chear me on and offer your thoughts and advise and.....I've lived a lot of life and would love to answer any questions you may have......TO BE CONTINUED....
