Day 2, Self-Inflicted Torture

I want some coffee and I want it now!!!   Sigh.  That’s not gonna happen for awhile.  So far I have survived two days of nothing but lemonade (sweetened with maple syrup or agave, no sugar) and tea.  Oh, no, not any black tea – green, peppermint, and this lovely ‘herbal ex-lax’….. not that it tastes bad, it’s the ‘end’ result, if ya know what I mean!  Oh, and cayenne pepper…. that’s another lovely thing (in the end).  They say you can put it in the lemonade…. ????  As if!!  We are taking it in capsule form, because I know for a fact that it would kill my stomach.  Besides not liking how it tastes.  Especially in lemonade, I would imagine.  So, I haven’t been hungry at all, which is weird.  Maybe lemon juice is an appetite suppressant?  I don’t know – however, I’d really like to eat.  Actually, I’d really like a mocha!!   Yesterday was really bad.  I was soooo tired, especially after the massage (which was lovely, by the way!)  that I actually was afraid I’d fall asleep while driving home!  I went to bed as soon as I got home, woke up to pick Kiki up at 3:30, then went to bed last night at 8:30.  Wow.  So not me!  I woke up 4 times before midnite because I had to go to the bathroom (aarrrggghhh) and on the 4th trip, I had a headache so bad (probably lack of caffeine) that I was nauseated and dizzy, so I took some Advil (even though Alan had thought I shouldn’t because I was trying to cleanse and that would be putting chemicals in my body) WhatEVER – I was dying!!  That helped a ton, as I then slept thru until the alarm went off….  Today was a little better, still really tired, but not deleriously so.  My arm hurts from squeezing lemons and limes, and we are going to need even more than the 4lbs I bought….sheesh.   But, Alan weighed in at his work contest today, and he’s down 4 pounds this week – so maybe this will be a little start; we’ll see.  
I’m still processing the "theophostic prayer" deal, and I go back for another massage next week…. when I get my head wrapped around the stuff that’s going on, I’ll let you in on it.  It’s not weird or anything, just, a lot to think through, and pray about…. that sort of thing.

  1. Sounds interesting, that\’s for sure.  The cayenne pepper in lemonade??? not so sure about that one.
    Thanks for what your wrote.  Most people have said "get over it"  which I will but not yet.  Maybe I need to do the jaw thin.  That would help immensely!!!

  2. I can\’t wait to hear about the prayer massage thing.  I have heard of those cleanses before, never tried one, be interesting to hear how you feel afterward.
