Day 21 – I read in a book that one really doesn’t get the full benefits of a cleansing diet until after they hit day 21. So this is my day! I still feel on top of the world. I feel close to my husband, children, and most importantly to Heavenly Father. I feel that angels are assisting me in hard times and that I am being watched over. Most of all I am grateful today.
Day 22 – I kept busy yesterday, took my daughter to Seattle for a new summer wardrobe. We had a blast together! I was truely in the moment with her the entire day. Normally there would be a distraction at hand or I would think about what I had to get done–and I never really lived in the moment of happiness. I am learning that now. Actually, breaking my addiction with food has helped me. I don’t know what has made the difference but maybe perspective? At any rate I am happier than I have been in years.
Today I woke up and (this is gross so do not read if you have a weak stomach) I went to the bathroom. Now usually my number two’s are liquidy with grainy poop. I do poop a lot every day. But this morning my poop was a semi solid huge waste. Day 22 and a pretty solid bowel movement? Wow, I am so glad that came out of me. It was also very dark brown to black and stinky. Gross, I know. Okay, enough of the potty talk.
Other than that I am cooking delicious healthy dinners for my family without much problem. I have already noticed while on this journey that I am making better choices for my loved ones. I want to protect them from harm and provide them with good nutrition too. I am excited for day 23!
Day 23 – keeping busy is the key to avoid boredom on this cleanse. Boredom is often one of the side effects, and it definitely is in my case. It’s not like I don’t have a million things to do, but that they seem boring to me. It’s a very odd feeling indeed! I started implementing colon massage last night. Stanley Burroughs used massage a lot in eliminating toxins. I noticed my eliminations were double the amount so I will continue with this new practice each night. I forgot to take my morning laxative tea and ended up feeling very ill and flu like by the afternoon. I even had to lie down for a few hours and almost puked. It went away as soon as I was able to go to the bathroom. Don’t forget your laxative teas and/or salt water flush each day. These toxins have to leave the body or it will make you sick! On a happy note I was down another pound today!
