Today I feel so much better! I got about 11 hours of sleep last night, and woke up feeling energetic and happy. Best of all, no headache! I really just wanted to curl up and snuggle with some hot tea, but alas, I went straight for the salt water.
I drank my 32 oz down first thing in the morning. About 25 minutes later I had a normal BM, and about 20 minutes after that the SWF was ready to bid me adieu. Quite enthusiastically, I might add. It’s such a strange sensation, totally unique and certainly comical, and I couldn’t help but think to myself, “Alright, so I guess we’re doing this.” Bring on the Master Cleanse!
My energy was much better today. I was able to focus and I worked for quite a long time. Afterwards, I took the pooches on a nice long walk, which I’d been procrastinating all day but actually felt really awesome. The wind had died down a bit by the evening, and with This American Life in my ipod, I was good to go. Around dinnertime I cleaned out the fridge. I’d tried to eat all the perishables before yesterday, but I’d failed. Lucky chickens! They got a big bunch of cilantro, some old carrots, half a giant tomato, and half a head of cauliflower. MmmMMm . . . cauliflower . . .
But don’t think the day was all peachy keen. I had my headache coming and going randomly at random intervals. I had trouble focusing whenever I went too long without the drink, and I definitely feel less ‘present’. I’m not always the most present person to begin with, so this can be sort of difficult. Less important when I’m by myself, but it does interfere if I’m trying to run errands or talking on the phone or something. And late tonight, my hearing went all wonky and my right ear was ringing for 10 minutes or so.
But all in all, I can’t complain. I feel amazing considering I haven’t eaten in 2 days. Perhaps my RAW trial sort of prepared me for this, and I’ll just have less to detox. Or, perhaps it’s just taking a while and it’s about to come crashing down on me in all its poison-purging fury. My tongue has *just* started getting gooey this evening, and my molars are starting to feel filmy as well. So who knows?
I don’t know how it got so late! I had all this energy, but now I’m fading fast. Love and luck to you all!
