Day 1 - Back to Health
Today is day one of the colon cleanse. I could have started yesterday, Monday, but I had a girlfriend birthday party to go to and I didn't want to sit out of the champagne and fun, so today is the day. I got up this morning and instead of a protein bar as my usual thing I had a pear and my coffee, black. Wade put my arms and shoulders through the ringer and I thought I might "DIE"! Not really but I was really, really hungry and a bit light headed when I got home and a bit worried. It was fine after a bottle of water and my first shake. I did frozen blueberries and a bit of pineapple for some sweetness, the shake mix (nutrition), and ice cubes. Not bad, not sweet but hey, I managed it just fine. Before I even started though my tummy was doing some somersaults for some reason this morning and I have not been far from a ladies room. I do that though and it's probably because I have been eating a lot more fresh veggies the past few days anyway. Another shake for lunch and some veggies and I will be good. I'm thinking about purchasing a juicer so I can do some carrots but not sure I want to invest if this is a short term thing. I do have a challenge this weekend, Sunday. My cousins that Daddy stayed with in Arizona a couple of years ago are here for the weekend and my aunt (Daddy's sis) is having a BBQ! EEK! Luckily I had planned on having my shake and taking veggies to munch but then she asked if I would bring a veggie tray! Works perfectly for me. That will be my 6th day of the shakes and stuff and then I will add the brown rice, legumes, chicken, fish and lean meats. I can do this thing, I can do it!
