Master Cleanse Day 8


Today was tough! I was so tired this morning and so cranky all day! Not to be gross but I have started releasing solid toxins. It's really making me feel a bit poopy. I don't feel sickly, just tired. I drank the tea last night, but didn't have to get up in the middle of the night, thank goodness!! This morning is when I started the toxin thing. I didn't really understand what was going on, but after looking at some Cleanse blogs, I found out that was it. Now, this one diary I have been reading said that when she went through this on Day 8, she decided to keep drinking the lemonade until she only had mucus again. NO WAY JOSE! I can't do this beyond tomorrow and Friday. Okay, I actually could, but I am tired of it and I have my whole weekend of getting back to food planned. Two soups on Saturday and a special veggie tofu dish on Sunday. Besides, I think I really have gotten what I need out of this - a change in lifestyle!

So, there is one thing I did learn today that is new for me. Boy, exercise really helps the mood out! Even just a short walk! I was super cranky today. I had to meet someone from work to get some files a few blocks away. About a five minute walk really. Well, after walking down the hill and back up I really felt much better. My mood totally improved! I need to remember to take a little walk even if it's only 15 minutes! I especially need to do that if I get cranky!!!

Exercise is such a vital key for me too! It is especially great when I am listening to Chaka really loud on my ipod which I shake my booty!

So vital, but so easy to ignore! I need to get right back on that bandwagon.
