Halfway through! Day 4.
May 8, 2008

I woke up this morning and got on the scale.  137.  I lost approximately 10 pounds in 4 days. 

I had a very long day.  Support group meeting. Working out. Matlab programming. Mime practicing. Grocery shopping.

I am pooped!  Therefore this post is going to be shorter than normal.

I have noticed that my sweat isn’t really ‘sweaty’.  I don’t feel all dirty and salty when I sweat now.  That’s pretty cool.  My skin also has a ‘glow’ to it, and I haven’t broken out recently on my face.  My skin is softer and appears to have a more healthy and elastic feel to it.  The difference is really noticeable now.  I am over the hump of this detox!

Today, I had:

  • 6 cups of water
  • 2 cups of apple juice
  • 4 cups of carrot soup

Ok, I am down by 4 cups (2 cups water and 2 cups juice).  My boyfriend is making broccoli juice right now. MMMM…yummy. lol  I will get in my 4 cups before the night is over.

Verses of focus during this experience: 1 Cor. 12:12-26

Ok, I am done…I am OUT!

My first detox program! Day 1.
May 5, 2008

Yesterday, my boyfriend and I decided to start a detox program by going on a vegetable/fruit juice diet. Lord, give us strength to make it through this whole day! We are trying to do this for at least a week.  We took before pictures to compare them to the after pictures next Sunday.  This morning I had a cup of carrot, cucumber, and celery juice blend. It was not so bad going down when I first started to drink it WARM but as it got cooler near the end of the cup, I started to feel like BLAH!  I have a broccoli soup in store for lunch and apple juice as a snack between lunch and working out.  I am going to finish up my cup of carrot, cuccumber, and celery blend after I finish my exercise to carry me on until my boyfriend and I decide what blend to have for dinner.  I have already finished up 2 cups of water and will try to drink 4 more cups before dinner.  My goal is take in at least 8 cups daily.

 But I tell ya, if you check out the crap that can accumulate in your digestive system over the years, it might motivate you to do some type of cleansing or detox.

To find out more info on google, CLICK HERE. Be warned…there are some disgusting images that can be found HERE. After seeing these pictures, I felt really sick and concerned for the health of my system ESPECIALLY after reading that someone actually found a maggot expelled from her system during her colon cleanse…eww GROSS!

There are also services called colonics where you can get a total system flush. What are your views about colon cleansing/detox programs?
