Wait, what day is it?!? Oh yah, it’s Friday…just not my Friday. Haha. I woke up this morning feeling pretty well rested. I opted out of the aloe pills again last night so no surprises this morning! I did get up with a sore throat, nothing major though. I also noticed a stiff spot in my back that has since radiated up to my left shoulder and neck area. Boo. I called in my good friend Michelle for a nice chair massage this afternoon! I can hardly wait. I have been jumping on my trampoline every afternoon for a few minutes at a time to help release the goo from my lymph nodes, don’t know if its helping but it can’t hurt. It was suggested in “the book” so I’ve been doing it. I also gave myself another really good loofah scrub down last night before bed…gotta flake off all that dead skin and allow the toxic buildup to escape! I was a little itchy this morning but it didn’t last very long.
I started my day with the usual warm water and lemon and cup of hot tea. Made my juice for the day – the Liver Cleanser – yummo. Beets, cucumbers and lemon. Today I also decided to reward myself with a protein berry smoothie. So glad I did this because I felt I might be needing a little extra sustenance today. I also passed on the probiotic supplement that I added to my morning regimen simply because I realized there were plenty of these AND enzymes in the berry powder and the protein I took in today. I didn’t know they were already in there. That’s one less thing I have to worry about.
I have felt a little yucky off and on all morning but nothing that has me down. I just know the crap is trying to leave my body and I might need to drink more water in between my juices and nutrient packs. I weighed in at 137 this morning, another lb gone! It’s still hard to see ahead and imagine that I could lose more. Just doing what I’m doing has been pretty satisfying and not too difficult in the grand scheme of things. Let’s hope the meltdowns everyone else has told me about aren’t too bad for me…those should be coming any day now. Or maybe not at all! Wouldn’t that be great. I’ll keep ya posted!
