Standard Process Cleanse Day 3-7

Phew! I feel pretty much back to normal today.

Days 3 and 4 were mentally the toughest for me.  But I also got to see some really awesome effects of the cleanse during those days, too. 

Most notably, I am sleeping like a CHAMP!  I fall asleep easily, I don't wake up in the middle of the night for no reason, and I'm completely rested when I wake up.  Oh man.  It feels awesome!

Last week came with some issssssh-ues.  I was not happy about being on the cleanse.  I was mad that I was doing it, and not sure why I was doing it.  My favorite story of the week came from my seemingly benevolent giving of blood.  My iron level was higher than average, and my blood pressure was phenomenal.  Too bad that didn't do much for my... um... passing outage.  And what do they give you when you pass out?  Soda.  That's a bit of a problem.

This week will not be without its challenges.  Tomorrow, we are having a food day on my team at work.  This normally means all day eating. Muffins, pizza, chicken, chips & dip, etc.  It was rough when I was just trying to loose weight without the cleanse.  Oh, and the best part?  The "food cube" is right outside mine. Smells... wafting... Buh.

Friday we get to add meat, which is something Husband and I are looking forward to.  A lot of people who have done the cleanse before me have said they don't really feel like adding the meat when the time comes.  That's not me.  Not at all.   

Besides the great sleeping, my favorite part of the cleanse is that I am also losing weight. Here's to more of both! 

Weight loss:  6.6 pounds, and the husband has lost 11!
Any Cheating:  None today. Woot!
Mood: Normalized.  Still craving a stinking sandwich, though. 
Favorite food: Brussel sprouts and mushrooms
Physical symptoms: Better sleep, and no more pains in my kidneys.
Emotional symptoms:  Excited!
