Re: Day 6 (and 5, and 7) Enders
Today was totally rougher on me than the last few, but it doesn't sound as rough as yours, missp! Good for you for sticking to it. My problem was that I didn't get to do a SWF (Salt-Water-Flush)
this morning, and those piling toxins made me pretty friggin' sick. I was in bed for a couple of hours this afternoon before my morning tea started getting it through this afternoon ... as in right now ... (good thing its a saturday.) But I'm doing better now (whew!) and more positive. But today was a lower-energy, higher-craving day. I think having a buddy is helping my morale a lot. He's doing way better today, so we're pulling each other along. I *know* I am detoxing, though. I love feeling so cleaned out. And that's a big motivator, too! So is the 8 lb drop, although I'm not expecting for it all to stay off. (*hoping* though) I know most of it (day 1 & 2) was water weight. I still can't stomach straight molassas, but my maple licks are a nice treat/booster. Teeth a little less sticky today. Sort of.
The big thing for me with the cravings is that I know I can't have that stuff at all again. Or (realisticly) at least for a very long time, and NEVER as often. Getting through the fast seems doable at this point, even with the crappy days. No more Mochas ... a little harder to swallow. But I know that feeling better on so many levels will help. What a way to cold-turkey addiction.
I totally envy you your relaxing at-home spa evening. :) Sounds sweet.
Keep on Chuggin!!
