Master Cleanse 3 - Day 9

Day 9 -

Weight Loss = 10.5 lbs

I made it through my 9 day cleanse! It was easy to get through today. I was busy at work and had a lecture to go to tonight - so my mind was on other things. I felt good today. A little hunger in the evening, but I ran out of lemonade in the afternoon and did not bring enough for "dinner" so I had to wait until I got home at 10pm. Tomorrow I begin to break the fast. Here is the proper way:
Tonight - Drink one last senna tea
Day 1 - Do one last SWF in the morning. The rest of the day, drink fresh squeezed orange juice (organic oranges) - 50% water and 50% OJ.
Day 2 - Continue drinking OJ, can make it stronger 25% water and 75% OJ. For dinner, make a vegetable soup - any vegetables you like boiled in spring or distilled water, add mild seasonings and sea salt for taste. Eat mostly the broth and few vegetables
Day 3 - Full strength OJ for breakfast, the rest of the soup and all the vegetables for lunch. For dinner, eat a salad or vegetables, a little bread and little oils.
Day 4 - resume normal eating, but avoid meat and dairy for as long as possible.

I may have to deviate a little from this plan, since Sunday is Easter, and I will be having dinner with the family.

Master Cleanse 3 - Day 8

Day 8 -

Weight Loss = 8.5 lbs

I was doing pretty good today until about 4:00pm. I had to teach today, so I had to get up early and skipped the SWF. I easily made it through to lunch time without even feeling hungry. But as the afternoon went on and I had to continue lecturing and teaching, I started to wear down. By 5:00pm, I was hungry, tired and had a headache. Now, I am feeling very sleepy and am just ready to get to bed. I hope my headache eases. It is sometimes difficult to sleep when I have a bad headache. Tomorrow is my last day before I begin to break the fast - Tomorrow should be a good day.

Master Cleanse 3 - Day 7

Day 7 -

Weight Loss = 8 lbs

Today was great. I had tons of energy. I was able to easily get out of bed, get to work, get all my work done, ect. Even my tennis class was good. I was feeling hungry the first part of class, but luckily I still had some lemonade left to drink. I did not loss any weight yesterday, but I think that is because I did not drink enough water yesterday. It is very important to keep drinking water all day. Remember the formula, 1/2 your body weight in ounces - this does not include other liquids such as the lemonade.
Tomorrow is a teaching day, so I will be gone from the house/work all day. I think that I will skip the SWF in the morning, because I will not have enough time. If you cannot do the SWF then you can drink the tea at night and then again the morning.

Master Cleanse 3 - Day 6

Day 6 -

Weight Loss = 8 lbs

I still have the swollen tongue thing. I hope it goes away soon, it is very bothersome. The SWF this morning was quick and almost painless - It is definitely my least favorite part, but it nice that it is getting easier. Today was a bit difficult - I was low on energy. I had a hard time getting to work and getting everything done. I ended up working late, just to catch up on everything I was suppose to do. The good thing about the MC is that I don't have to be home to eat dinner with my husband, so it is easy to work late. Tomorrow I have my tennis class, I am a bit worried I might be low on energy and not want to play for 2 - 2 1/2 hours. Maybe I will leave early if I am not feeling up to it. Well, time fore tea and bed.

Master Cleanse 3 - Day 5

Day 5 -

Weight Loss = 7 lbs

We keep ourselves busy today with shopping and gardening. I did not feel very hungry today, except in the evening around what is normally dinner time. I did have one strange incident - the area under my tongue is swollen. It is very sensitive and hurts. I think this happened last time too. I am not sure why it happens, but it is a strange sensation. Otherwise today was uneventful...but we are officially over the half way mark, so it is all down hill from here.
