Days 3 and 4 of the Clean
Sunday, January 27, 2013
Yesterday, day three, I wasn't feeling great. My neck kept snap-crackle-popping and I had a low-grade headache most of the day. I was glad to be on Cashier Assistant duty since I was feeling somewhat "down". My appetite has also been mild these first days; I decided not to have dinner until I got home. Then... I went berserk. Well, berserk in terms of the Cleanse. I ate a fistful of dried cranberries with chocolatte and sunflowr seeds, and all the rest of our sliced turkey! Oooh, naughty.
What's really worse is I stayed up really late. I managed to keep the the 12hr window betwwen dinner and breakfast (or this time snack and breakfast) and I forgave myself the outburst, reminding myself it was emotional hunger, not real hunger.
Today has been a much better day. Oddly, I have too many lunches! I have leftovers of the solids but I have to make the breakfasts and dinners each time. We got a cat today and she is alarmingly perfect, cuddling us and purring and even using the litter box! We are astounded and happy.
In all, I'm feeling confident in this reset though I've recently been stress-constipated. I need to move around more and I've been taking a milk herbal laxative tea at night as my "nightcap". I'll need a non-laxative sweet tea to replace it when I'm regular. Here's to a good weekend!
