Day 10 Master Cleanse

Day 10, yessss!!!! I did it.... wow this is a great feeling. Thinking back on the past 10 days how my routine , my lifestyle, my outlook has changed. Its really amazing.

So the master cleanse is over, but i still have to continue with a liquid diet for a day or two just to jumpstart my stomach/digestive system in preparation of eating solid foods.

I still cannot believe that i did not eat for the past 10 days, it just does not seem possible and to think I usually eat 2-3 hours a day, i am trying to recall what i did with those 2-3 hours per days that i got.

Also, i enjoyed the weight loss part. given this is not the main purpose of this cleanse but losing 20lbs is a big deal. I will use this as the beginning on living and eating healthy in order for me to reach my ideal weight.

I would miss walking up every morning and making the lemonade solution and licking that spoon measure with left over maple syrup ( the highlight of my day lol). I hope even after the cleanse, I can still maintain the benefits that i got with it.

Well thank you Master Cleanse for giving a new perspective :)

Day 9 Master Cleanse

Day 9, yehey!!!!

I cant believe that i have not taken any food for 9 days... its weird, i do not even miss chewing. I hope i still know how to chew lol. Also, my sense of smell seems to be hightened because i can smell food around me and at least could tell what they are... weird, i do not notice it before or at least pay attention to it before the cleanse, i just eat the food without smelling them.

I noticed that my "eliminations" are a bit slower and less often as before. I have not changed my routine and/or recipes. I still take the SWF in the evenings. I assume its different for every person.

Tomorrow is the last day, its bittersweet. To be honest, i enjoy this whole experience and I am gonna miss it. On the other hand, im excited to start eating again because i am curious what they will taste like since I am assuming my tongue or tastebuds are new (or sorta new) lol .

I'll sleep on it so when i wake up its the final day :)

good night

Day 8 Master Cleanse

Wow, Day 8 i cant believe it. I am almost done.

Same feeling as before, i dont feel hungry anymore and to be honest i get full easily and can not finish my 2 liters of lemonade solution. I still try to finish as much as I can since it has the nutrients i need.

Sea Salt Water Flush is still not that fun to drink but i have to , inorder for it to flush the toxins in my body.

Another fun thing i did today was to do some bikram yoga class. It was intense, though it was fun at the same time. I felt a bit nauseous but good thing is that i did not pass out. lol

anyway back to the master cleanse, i only have 2 more days left to complete the 10 days. im looking forward to it though i am not sure how will i start eating again. I havent had any solid food in so long... need to plan my easeout phase.

good night and see you in the morning day 9 :)

Day 6 Master Cleanse

Peaceful saturday!

I spend the day watching movies and reading a book. it helps past the time... i did had cravings at one point, but i have to ignore it and just keep looking at my goal of 10 days.

I got the hang of making the lemonade solution now every morning. I like the feeling when i wake up in the morning, i'm actually awake, no more snoozing or dragging myself off the bed. I feel better and light.

The sea salt water solution is a bit tolerable now, its not as salty as it was during the first few days of drinking it. I have not changed the recipe for it, so I am not sure if it is my taste buds that have adjusted to it.

That's day 6, I'm getting there.... bring it on day 7 :)



Day 5 Master Cleanse

sorry i am 18 minutes late on this post...
Day 5 is a bit tough, got too busy at work i forgot to drink the lemonade solution so i felt hungry for the first time during this whole process.... it subsided after a while however that was not a good feeling.
i reached my 2nd short term goal of attaining 5 days.... i would like to continue and go for the 10days... first i need to survive the weekend since there is no work to preoccupy me with things to do.... i'll make it work somehow

bring it on weekend... i can do this...

Day 4 Master Cleanse

it is a good day :) Congratulations to myself for being able to make.

I am wondering if this is all psychological or my body is really adapting to this change. I still have not experience hunger as long as i am drinking the lemonade solution. I did have minor cravings but not strong enough to break my cleanse. I do not even miss the sensation of chewing and/or think about eating when the time hits 12noon or 7pm , its weird but im happy for it.

Tomorrow will be day 5, if i finish this then i would have completed my 2nd short term goal. After that, i'll know 'if i can still continue to do it for 10 days... we will see what day 5 has to offer. I need to go to the market, im low of lemons :)

Day 3 Master Cleanse

This day is pretty good.

I believe i have adjusted to it already. I did not experience any headaches or tiredness towards the end of the day. I did not feel hungry once again, I did experience some cravings though, probably because i was thinking and smelling food as I commute home today.
Tomorrow is the 4th day, im excited to be honest, because i did not expect to last this long. I told myself that I will do it for 3 days and if i can still do it, i'll i continue to 5 days. So, I believe I will do that.
we'll see...

Day 2 Master Cleanse

Once again, I did not feel hungry today, however I had some cravings especially when I saw the Crispy Pata at home.

I had light headaches and tiredness around 6pm today, however after I drank some lemonade solution I felt better after a while.

The sea salt water flush is still unbearable to take in due to the taste. It reminds me of the feeling like drowning in the sea because its the same taste.

I'm quite proud that I can still last this long considering I'm the type of person who eats all the time.

Im looking forward to Day 3. I wonder if people around me notice something different. Today, on the phone, the person said I talk like I do not have any energy or enthusiasm, whereas in my head I feel energetic. We'll see...

Good Night

Day 1 Master Cleanse

Day 1 A Success!

At least i feel it was a success.

I did not feel hungry at all, if i do feel hungry i take a sip/drink of the lemonade solution and it feels me up. The solution is quite easy to make, and the taste is quite good. Its like a freshly squeezed lemonade that has a kick at the end.

The salt water solution is the worse part of it all. Its taste is unbearable however the result is relaxing :).

I felt tired and/or sleepy towards the early part of the evening. I am not sure if this is because my body is adjusting or just low in energy in total.

Tomorrow will be another day. lets see how it goes.
