after getting off to a pretty good start yesterday morning, things quickly went down hill in the afternoon. by 2p i was extremely dizzy and just not feeling right. it subsided a bit after a while, but by the time i got home around 6p, the dizziness was back. i was also freezing cold, my stomach was upset, and i was so tired i could barely keep my eyes open. i skipped the yoga and the jaunt around the block in favor of the couch and several blankets. i drank quite a bit of tea last night in hopes of it helping with the nausea, but all it did was keep me up all night peeing twice as much as the rest of this week. i’m not sure what happened, as i stuck to my juice schedule all day and drank plenty of water. perhaps it’s the toxins leaving my body? i don’t know. whatever it was, it sucked.
it’s now about 11a the morning of day #4, and i’m absolutely exhausted. i feel like i could sleep for a week. i have to say that i’m pretty much over this whole juice drinking thing. i’m totally bored with it and i’m not really feeling any better today (still dizzy and i’m so cold, it’s unbelievable), which is making me grumpy. i’m not sure what positive things i’m getting out of this cleanse at this point. although, i did weigh myself this morning and i’ve lost 6lbs. i don’t know from where, everything still seems the same to me, but apparently i have. so there is that. i’m on juice #2 now, which as you all know, is my favorite, so i’m ok for now, but i don’t know if i’ll make it through the day. all i can think about right now is a tuna fish sandwich on wheat toast with avocado and tons of dijon mustard. the thing is though, i’m actually not even hungry, and i would probably be so sick if i tried to eat that. so, i’m a bit of an unhappy camper today, but maybe the day will turn around for me. here’s hoping.
