Master Cleanse Days 24, 25 & 26

Day 24- Today I still had a lot of boredom. I realize how much a part of my life food has been. It has been my good friend for years…and I am lonely without it. As soon as I could identify this was my problem I did much better. I took advantage of the extra time I felt I had and cleaned out my entry, a huge cupboard, did the laundry as well as started to clean out nooks in my entire house. I feel kind of like my house is going through a cleanse (so to speak). While I clean out the inside of my body I will also tackle the unseen drawers and cupboards that have stored unneeded things for years – so called “stored toxins” in my home.

Day 25 – This morning when I got on the scale it had dropped two pounds! It seems to me that my weight will remain practically the same for a few days and then like magic I will see another huge loss! I am really going to town cleaning out all of mt kitchen cabinets! My kitchen is going to be spotless by tomorrow!:)

I’m still feeling better than I have in years. Starting to miss food though, not hungry at all, but I’m wanting to chew on something.

Day 26 –  My son is graduating from high school this week, so I have been keeping busy with lots of projects and continuing cleaning the house.  I bought some tomato plants and put them in cedar planter boxes.  These projects have really kept me sane.  I used to be so busy I would pray each and every day that I could feel like I had enough time in my day to accomplish what I needed.  I rarely if ever felt that way and was always anxious and overwhelmed.  I suffered with anxiety/panic attacks almost daily which made it hard to get anything done.  During this cleanse I feel amazing.  For the first time in years that feeling of urgency—needing to get everything done right now—has almost disappeared.  I am also feeling like I have time once again.  I love this feeling and I don’t want it to end.

I lost another pound today. It really has helped to keep moving and going. My energy levels are still up and stabilized.  I am only needing a good 7-8 hours of sleep. As I am coming up on my day 30 I am really considering going off for a bit.  I miss food.  I am not hungry but I want to taste, chew, and enjoy once again. On the other hand, I feel like I have come so far it would be a shame not to make it to my 40 day goal. Furthermore, as of today, my tongue is still white.

    I like your comment about your house going through a cleanse also!! It is funny how much time food takes up in a day with grocery shopping prep and cooking three meals for six people, it is a lot of work, but it seemed easier on the cleanse because I was out of the picture, and it wasn't about what I wanted to eat or felt like eating, but about preparing good food for my family. For some reason it seemed simple and now that I have been off for a week, I can honestly say that eating is overrated and I am looking forward to the next ten day cleanse to approach other habits and get rid of even more toxins!!
