Master Cleanse: Day 6

Standard

Morning Weigh-in:  146.8 lbs.

Today’s Intake:

6:30 am – 1 quart salt water
8:10 am – 12 oz water
9:00 am – 1 quart lemonade
11:00 am – 1 quart lemonade
1:14 pm – 1 quart lemonade
3:07 pm – 1 quart lemonade
8:20 pm – 1 cup herb lax. tea

Wow, I drank a lot today!   And, after today’s prep, I’m out of lemons again.  I think I’ll get limes this time, too, since the concoction can be made with either.  While I’m at it, I’ll probably stock up on at least some bananas and tomatoes so they can be ripening for next week.

I’ve cut down even more on the cayenne, as I can actually feel when it passes, as if I’ve had a big, spicy meal. = /  Now, I’m just using a pinch.  I can already tell it’s cleared away a lot, if not all, of any mucus.  The only other thing I’m noticing on Day 6 is that my stomach is quiet and peaceful, just like it is when I’m raw.  The elimination -type trips to the restroom (RR) slow down around 1 pm.  Phew!

By the way, I received an email confirmation that my dates shipped today.  They are fast!! I just ordered them yesterday evening.  Excited!!

Master Cleanse: Day 5

Standard

Happy New Year!!

Morning Weigh-in: 148.2 lbs

Today’s Intake:

7:54 am – 1 quart salt water

I am loving the simplicity of this cleanse.  Just two teaspoons of salt, plus water, to start the morning.  I ate ice the rest of the  morning.

During one of many trips to the RR, I pressed on my stomach to massage the colon and experienced way more elimination.   I was already feeling just fine before — no dizziness, weakness, or headaches.  I felt even better after helping things along in this way.  I did it because every time I moved, I can hear and feel the latest quart of fluids sloshing around inside!

11:51 am – 1 quart lemonade

I sipped this quart while watching The Matrix, one of my fave movies, and playing Sudoko.  I love the part where Trinity says, “You know that road.  You know exactly where it ends.  And I know that’s not where you want to be.”  It applies to so many things for me, and at this moment, it is the familiar road of cooked food versus the raw food path.

Let it all go…fear, doubt, and disbelief.  Free your mind.

3:16 pm – 1 quart lemonade

4:14 pm – 1 cup mint tea

5:03 pm – 1 quart lemonade

8:48 pm – 1 cup herbal lax tea

I ordered some Khadrawy dates from 7hotdates.  I will need them next week!  I’m very much looking forward to eating again.  My mouth is salivating looking at raw vegan recipes.  When I get back to eating, I plan to eat mostly fruit and keep it close to 80/10/10 at least for a month.  I really want to work on taking in the seemingly large amount of fruit on a consistent basis and getting used to it.  Then, I may stick to raw for longer than a month.  For good would be nice.  = )

How synchronistic!  I just received and signed up for FullyRaw Kristina’s 21 Day Challenge. This is perfect as I prefer to eat LFRV, and the program will be beginning as my cleanse is ending.

Master Cleanse: Day 4

Standard

Posting yesterday’s notes…

Morning Weigh-In: 148.4 lbs

Tuesday’s Intake:

6:35 am – 1 quart salt water

8:34 am – 1 quart lemonade

11:00 am – 1 quart lemonade

1:00 pm – 1 quart lemonade

3:00 pm – 10 oz mint tea

I didn’t have a chance to prepare the quarts this morning, so I took all the ingredients into work.  I juiced six lemons by hand into a pint jar.  I  made the mixture throughout the day as needed.

By 4 pm,  I am starving!  Looking forward to making another quart when I get home, as there’s not enough lemon juice left to make another batch.

When I actually made it home, I ate ice instead.  *shrugs*

6:00 pm – 1 quart lemonade

I scheduled a massage and sauna session for this weekend.  The most relaxing way to detox!
