Tamara’s Detox Day 8
So yes, I’ve decided to continue on this Detox…. somewhat….. I woke up today with a conviction to finish the shakes (hopefully I can finish 2 a day~ Breakfast & Dinner), that should make 3 more days. In between I will have a few Juices (Carrots, Beets, Celery, Cilantro, Lemons, Ginger etc) as well as Green Tea & Turmeric & my new Favorite Tea Dandelion!!! I’m still hoping for an ah~ha moment, but I know that I’ve at least gotten rid of the cravings that were plaguing my brain. That in itself is a great feeling. I weighed myself & found that I’ve surprisingly lost 2.4kg. I think that is a great start, but again, it’s more the mental thing that I’m striving for not a ton of weight loss. So far I must say that just having this new conviction, I feel a ton better! I’m hoping this is the right decision, only time will tell!
Chris’ last post…..
This was tough this time around. I did not have work to stay busy w and cooking n cleaning up meals was difficult not to grab the remnants. Still… I am proud of my accomplishment. I am sorry my partner’s detox did not come off the way she wanted as mine has. I am looking forward to a stocked house of veggies n fruit for eating n juicing n lettuce and dried and raw goods for salads. I am looking forward to enjoying a coffee again and not just drinking it cause it’s a habit. I did not get any internal spirituality nor did I grow closer w anyone unfortunately but going thru this I realised that was a very hopeful n idealistic desire. Shoot for the moon though. I also feel that my snacking as I alluded to a sentence ago will be controlled better. I may still have something junky at night now and again but w the shelves of dried and raw goods n fruits n veggies the choice will b easier to be body positive. I have cleansed my body I feel. Lightness n tightness has replaced full n squishy. I took off 2.4kg according to my Wii Fit board n it shows in the flappy belly n my back. I also feel I took out the trash but a lot less than last time. My guess is because I am now a vegetarian and last time I was omnivorous. I am ready to exercise again starting Tuesday. I jogged the first two days, biked the next two, n stretched each day but no exercise except chin ups each day (somewhere between 12 n 30 each day). I am now ready to get my batteries solared up n start w being busy n businessy n a person I would like to be with again. I have a dream still of brewing, a career which seems a little foggy in the direction at the moment, but like all these guys say visualise the end only and how it engages your senses and the steps will be clear to me when I am part of them. Emotionally I failed. I was stealing energy n stressed for much of the detox which kind of negated it but I feel that it was only a minority portion. It is definitely tough to get an ideal opening to do this when there are three other lives entwined in my own n a certain degree of dependency for comfort and care. I was not a stuffy but I also was not a cactus. There is that for improvement next time. I believe I will do it again in a year if I can find a space that makes sense seeing as I will be fully engaged in employment of some kind. Probably sooner after Xmas tho. I would recommend this to someone wishing to accomplish something great in their lives; maybe to see if they have willpower n dedication. That is something I feel is great about the lemonade fast. It rilly is an accomplishment. I had seven days of virtually no food and although I was not exactly Colin at work I was mostly a good person n I lived to tell this tale. I am happier.
Tamara’s Detox Day 9
First of all, I must confess…. Last night around 6pm I broke down & made some carrot & potato soup with Garlic & Miso. I know it’s not technically ‘breaking down’ like grabbing a sandwich or a bag of chips, but, well, I hope you know what I mean (I wasn’t planning on having soup for 2~3 more days). I don’t feel guilty about it, so don’t worry about that. I had one small bowl, ate it really slow & felt every last drop of its Nurishment! Last night was really cold here & I just didn’t want a cold smoothie to fill up on, so soup it was, & it was good! It seemed to give me some positive oomph, cause before I headed to bed I set my alarm 20 minutes earlier with the intention of getting in both a great HIIT & Run, or at least one or the other. And you know what happened~ Well, I did just that! (the workout at least). It felt really good to get up before the kids again & get things going. I did all arms thinking I would get a great run in, but the frost on the car made me turn around & decide to wake up my sleeping beauties instead (a choice I’m glad I did) My breakfast smoothie went well & afterwards I did my third & final Coffee Enema! Whoo~Hoo. If you haven’t read up on the why/how/when’s of a Coffee Enema, please go to Jess’ site here & learn all about it in this safe & comfortable video. Around 11 I had a super refreshing juice of Carrots, Celery, Lemon & Apple, then treated myself to some Kombucha! Wow did that ever taste Unreal I had a small bowl of leftover soup (leftovers are the best), & did some work. I’m feeling like I have a ton of good energy going in my bod. Later in the day I had a little bit more Kombucha, & some Dandelion tea. For dinner Chris & I both had a cup of the Carrot, Potato, Garlic & Miso soup (yuuuuum) & we chilled for the rest of the night. Not much else to say about these last few days.
