Tamara’s Detox Day 5
Well…. where to start? (if you need to catch up, please see Intro, Day 1&2, Day 3&4.
I woke up again today without a sore throat! WhooHoo! & I wasn’t hungry either. I had some water & then headed down to do some working out. I got a good sweat on & I was good to go. I also did another Coffee Enema today, I have to admit they aren’t bad at all (here is Jess’ video if you want more info about them)! Afterwards I came upstairs for my Kaeng Raeng breakfast smoothie made with Coconut Water but I just couldn’t drink it~ I was feeling nauseous after 1/3 of it. (I’m not sure if it was because of the Enema or because I was still a little sick)? So I put it aside to finish later (little did I know it turns into a thick Gel like Paste ) Yuck. Oh well, I really couldn’t finish it anyways. I had some Green tea with Turmeric & really took it easy today. My Lunch smoothie came around 5pm & I really didn’t finish that full one either, although I did finish most of it…. Your adding is correct, I only had 2 smoothies again today… But I’ll tell you why…
First off, yes, I was feeling nauseous ~ But 2ndly I’ve also felt like these smoothies have been too much to eat. Think what you will, they are filling! I’m a little more use to a clean feeling when I detox rather than a full feeling…. Do you get what I’m talking about?
Today I did have some wanting of food, it was more of a hey that looks good or hey that smells good, not a grummmble Hunger. I don’t think I’m ready Mentally yet because of the food that I’d eat right now is not the food that I want to want to eat. Get me? I wanna come off this Detox eating Salads & Uber Healthy (& even tho we don’t eat junk, it’s still not good enough for me right now). Do you remember what my #1 Goal of this Cleanse/Detox was? The Mental ah~ha Food Consciousness. I want to eat when I’m truly hungry, & eat the foods that are going to Fuel my Body to do Amazing things! (Of course I will get back to ‘treats’ like popcorn, etc~ but for now it’s baby steps)!
Anyways, Day 5 came & went.
Tamara’s Detox Day 6
Woke up today with a sore throat again… don’t know what kind of bad joke this is, but I’m dealing with it. Zinc to the Rescue! We’re off to town today so I got in a quick arms workout & had an awesome juice (Carrots, Celery, Apple, Lemon & Cilantro). I’m feeling very emotional today. It happens to be the 7 Anniversary of when my Dad passed away, & I’m not really handling it that well. Usually I’m not so weepy~ I guess the cleanse is having its way with me. It’s okay tho, I’m taking it slow . Going into town turned out to be a great thing for us all. It got us out & about (although it was pouring rain), the fresh air was nice, it also kept my mind on other things which is something I really needed today. By the time we got home at 430 I was feeling a little hungry, so I grabbed a Kaeng Raeng Shake & added in some Coconut Water. I’m using Coconut Water instead of regular Filtered water because it just has so much more Nutrients & benefits in it, & I think that’s important when you’re really not ‘eating’ much! The rest of the day went alright although I was still kind of on an emotional rollercoaster . Tea, tea & more tea was my drink of choice, as was a relaxing Sea Salt Bath (benefits here). My sleep was decent (but then I’ve never really had an issue with sleeping)
Tamara Detox Day 7
What is going on? It’s seven days now & I’m just not feeling it! I was hoping for Clarity, Calmness, Weight loss, the Feeling of ah~ha….. where is it? Instead I’m feeling depressed, a little bloated, sluggish, bogged down in my body & mind, I almost feel like this is a waste of precious time & good coconut water! I’ve decided to take today to re~evaluate what I’m going to do. Because I haven’t been taking the 3 pre~made Kaeng Raeng shakes a day I still have 7 packages left, what to do with them? I have been juicing & love that, but do I start eating? do I continue with the shakes? Hmmmm, I’ll let you know tomorrow……
Chris’ Detox Day 5
I felt great waking. Not hungry or grouchy. Body felt good. Even though Oz has the flu I feel no sickness even after putting my body in this weakened state. The bike ride was good too but tiring. I was very close to giving up going up a hill but I got it done n then got my downhill to help me along. I have had a pain in my midback away from the spine for three days now. If I lay on my side it does not hurt. I did not get grouchy today but felt a point where I needed to accomplish something. I ended up brewing a batch of beer from about 1-9pm. So I guess that translates into having energy although it took me away from a day w my family. A little guilt there does not help detoxify. I went to bed tired but read to Tamara. I felt peace and calm but feel I am not being as nourishing to my family as I should be. I am getting detoxed but I still have a family to help take care of. I decided two more days of lemonade fast then two on OJ. Although we will see. I really do miss eating a lot now. I am also finding it difficult to finish even 2L of the lemonade. I feel I have pretty much left shitty eating impulses behind and that two more days will do it. Hopefully I can switch my belief in sugary food as a treat for a job well done too. I do want to live to 130 and proper eating and calm will help. Which is also why I have to stop thinking so deeply n stressing about how I will make a life on this new island. It will happen if I let it. By far the worst part of the detox is the salt water flush. I hate peeing out of my ass and you will too.
Chris’ Detox Day 6
Holy sh*t it has been 6 days. I am not in pain. I am enjoying warm lemonade now. Yum. I had a morning of less than stellar sociability but I am glad I did not damage anything too much… or kill ;). The main feeling I have right now is wanting to eat. Oz has a plate of banana chips, dried dates, craisins, bbq peanuts n dried apricots n that looks so good to me. I think that all that night snacking on chips was a problem but having something like oz is not an issue at all. Right now I would absolutely love to have a big bowl of popcorn w hot coconut oil. I do feel distant tho. I decided that I will only do tomorrow and then it is OJ for two. Going to stick to that. I feel I have done enough and I hope that I have. I feel like today was a wasted day for my life. I was a slouch, I was not a dad or a decent husband. I feel mentally like trash.
Chris’ Detox Day 7
My skin is loose on my belly n it looks like I had one of those stomach surgeries. Yuk. Glad today is last day. Wanted to eat badly again, but was not being silly. Needed energy today so I took it, which is not recommended. Got thru it n now it’s done. On w the transition out! Yay for me!
