Freelee's challenge: 1 year of doing the whole shebang--diet, exercise, water, sleep, etc. Stop worrying about weight gain and the momentary ups and downs of detox. Just do it!
40 min. Just Dance
Meal 1: 12 sm. bananas, 13 Black Sphinx dates, blended in a smoothie
Meal 2: 2 apples, 23 Black Sphinx dates, 3 ribs of celery
Meal 3: 64 oz. o.j., 5 C romaine, 2 Roma tomatoes
4370 cal. 95/2/3 C/F/P, 164 mg. sodium
12 cups/ 96 oz.
9:30-7 Slept o.k., sleep disrupted by many (5?) bathroom trips and I released a lot of gas on some of them
Productive day at work
Getting inspiration here at 30BAD!
Feeling much less bloated in my belly and much more hydrated after two days without cooked food or salt
White coating on my tongue upon awakening
Swollen under-eye circles in the morning
A little bit of gas
Had a lot of bowel movements, some of them uncomfortable and gassy
After meal 2, I had that tingly, itchy yeast feeling for about 10 minutes, but I went to the bathroom and it passed
Redness and bumpiness on forehead, nose and chin
In the evening, I got that old cooked food fear feeling... it's an old fear... "Can I give up the heavy feeling of beans and rice and the taste of salt forever?" I had already eaten 4300 calories and was not hungry, just fearful. Then I remembered that I didn't have to give it up "forever" but I could skip it just for today.
I read DR say that he can retain 12 pounds of water just from eating salt. That really motivated me. How nice would it be not to be carrying around all this extra water and not to have such a puffy face in the morning?
For those of you that missed it yesterday, I am going to do updated pictures and a summary post when I hit 60 days soon. Does anybody have any questions that they would like me to answer? I have a couple from Grape Nut, thanks!
