Today I am on day 7 of a "Master Cleanse". Don't ask. My DH is a fabulous gourmet cook - and he does full course meals. Rich sauces, butter, lots of cheese. But alas, I feel like a slug on this type of diet. My brain turns to mush, exercise is difficult and my motivation to get anything done is non existent...and I feel bloated.
The cleanse is for 10 days, although you can do up to 20, and then you need to take 4 more days to come off of it slowly. It is based on a booklet by Stanley Burroughs. I am keeping a diary. I also joined a yahoo support group that gives you great feedback about what is going on in your body as it is ridding itself of toxins, and what to expect - what is normal and what is not. So far so good. Day 5 and Day 6, I got hungry. Otherwise I have not been. My DH still cooks for himself, and I like to smell it cooking - my sense of smell has become very sensitive and I love the aromas. He even puts away the leftovers and cleans the dishes so I won't have any temptations. I am so lucky!
Lately, because I needed to occupy myself (and stay away from the kitchen and refrigerator), I have done a lot of artwork - some backgrounds, some drawings, some experiments. I keep meaning to take pictures - but I haven't!
And my Anniversary presents arrived! I got a Swingman heat press woohoo! and an Omni II glass saw. They are both very easy to use and I have wanted them almost forever!
....but until I clear away the boxes I stacked into my glass area when I had company, I have no space to put them! ...(ay dios mio! manana!
