Master Cleanse Day 2

Here I am.. the end of day 2! It feels great to get passed days 1 & 2 for sure, day 3 here i come!

My stomach spoke to me a couple of times today haha..

Not craving anything in particular but there were some weak points through out the day. I actually stopped in my tracks at one point during the day and said to myself... "I'm hungry" lol.

Last night i had a dream that i was drinking soup! Idk why, but i actually had a guilty feeling when i woke up (like i actually drank the soup!!)

Salt Water Flush

I didn't do my salt water flush for day 1 or day 2 "/


Well when i went to the health food store to pick up all of the supplies that i would need for my master cleanse i noticed that they didn't have uniodized sea salt... only iodized. I asked the lady that worked there if i can use iodized sea salt while on the master cleanse to do my morning flush and she said, "of course you can" i bought it.

I still did my research when i got home later on that night and it confirmed that i can NOT use iodized sea salt it must be UNIODIZED! (thank God for google!)

As an alternative I've been drinking the smooth move tea in the morning and at night, while there is nothing "wrong" with doing this, i still want to do the salt water flush. i don't want to cut any corners with this cleanse at all... I'm going by the book! (haha)

Reasons why i prefer the salt water flush over the laxative tea (in the morning) :
1. i have to drink the tea at night already i have to suffer again in the morning ugh!
2. i don't like tea.. never did.. never will
3. the salt water flush is so "right to the point"
4. i feel a great sense of accomplishment after downing 32oz. of salt water!

With this and with any program you have to find what works best for you :)

Master Cleanse Day 1

Spring is here.. Time for some good ole spring cleaning right! I'm not just talking about cleaning around the house or your garage, we need to clean our mind and our body. The master cleanse rids our body of toxins and gives us a "fresh start"!
Join me on my journey!

I took it easy today being that my body is in the 1st stage of detoxification.

oh.. here is what happens during stage one :

Stage 1 (Day 1 To Day 2) On the first day of fasting, the blood sugar level drops below 70 mg/dl. To restore the blood to the normal glucose level, liver glycogen is converted to glucose and released into the blood. This reserve is enough for half a day. The body then reduces the basal metabolic rate (BMR). The rate of internal chemical activity in resting tissue is lowered to conserve energy. The heart slows and blood pressure is reduced. Glycogen is pulled from the muscle causing some weakness. The first wave of cleansing is usually the worst.

Headaches, dizziness, nausea, bad breath, glazed eyes and a heavily coated tongue are signs of the first stage of cleansing. Hunger can be the most intense in this period unless the enema is used which quickly assists the body into the fasting state by ending digestion in the colon.

Well I didn't do an enema (don't think I ever will lol) but the hunger wasn't all that bad today luckily. Had a slight headache though, and was on the sleepy side most of the day.
