Today started off rough. I had crazy-weird dreams last night. I don't know if that's because of the cleanse or watching the season finale of Fringe followed by Downton Abbey. Maybe a little bit of both.
Last night we had our Smooth Move tea. A huge part of the cleanse is to keep things moving and this seems to really help. It didn't last night. I woke up feeling bloated which was the perfect feeling before I drank my quart of salt water. Mmm mmm good! The salt water is supposed to work it's magic in about an hour, so when no magic was a happenin' after an hour and a half I was very discouraged. Not to mentioned more bloated than before. I felt like I had an ocean inside of me and someone had secretly put a cork in me. That or the little Dutch boy had his....okay that just sounds dirty. You get the picture.
I was feeling pretty horrible, so I had some more tea. At that point I didn't care. I wanted movement. There was no use moping around the house so Joey and I went to have lunch with his mom. Let me tell you I almost nabbed that chicken right off her plate, but I didn't. I politely drank my Lemonade, Syrup, Cayenne Yum (LSCY) and tried to ignore the fact that I felt like a water balloon.
On our way home we stopped at the nursery and something magical happened. Yes, the little Dutch boy pulled out his finger and I wanted to sing and dance. Well, not really dance, I was kind of busy. I tell you, though, I did feel better. Much, much better.
By the time we got home I really felt great. I had more LSCY and went out and worked in the garden for the rest of the day. I didn't need to run upstairs once and honestly, I had and still have lots of energy.
I went back and read my blog from four years ago and pretty much the same thing happened. I felt bad in the morning and great by the end of the day. I wasn't quite as vivid when I wrote back then, so I am not sure of the exact events, but it was probably something similar.
So, lesson for Day 2 - You'll feel poopy til you poop!
