Standard Process Cleanse Day 19

Well, the cleanse is almost over. I can hardly believe it.  The first 10 days went sooooooo slow.  But these last few days have really flown by.  

Flown by while others around me have eaten hamburgers, french fries, cheesecake, biscuits and gravy, etc.  Honestly, none of them phased me.  Yes, I did think; that looks good or screw you. but I never once wanted to eat what someone else had. 

I have not reach a zen like state like I thought that I would, where I walked around calm, and serene, doling out bits of knowledge like Confucius. I have, however, realized some things. 

A few days ago I got into a, ahem, discussion with my husband. What? We're human.

Any way, while I was angry I thought about breaking the cleanse.  This scared me because I can so clearly see where my bad eating habits are coming from. When I don't have the guardrail of the cleanse, I don't realize I am having a bacon binge because I am upset.  I think I'm having a bacon binge because it tastes good with my beer.

Ugh. This just means I have something that I am going to fight for the rest of my life. It's a good thing I have my husband with me.  He's seriously a ROCK.  He's so solid, I love it. I love him. 

Gushy gushy, I know. I'll stop.  

But I can't! You should see him. Can I brag for a second?  Oh wait... this I my blog.  He's lost 16 pounds.  16 pounds!!!    

Here's how I am doing. I'm off to watch college football.  Oh happy day!

Weight loss: 13 pounds for me, 16 for husband
Any Cheating: I had some sweet potato chips.  They are all natural, organic and had no salt added.  Still felt like cheating.
Mood: Good!
Favorite food: Pineapple, avocado and brussel sprouts
Physical symptoms: 6 mile long run was a bit tough today. I was kind of wishing I had some carbs, or a gel to help out, but I stashed a quarter of a peach at my 4 mile turn around.  I like to think it helped. 
Emotional symptoms: Excitement.  For football food (again- VERY little), and for more weight loss.

  1. I love these updates! I also had a tough time with my 6 miles today... got through them pretty fast and easy (running at the women's 4 miler is so encouraging and awesome) but then i had to wait to eat and nearly passed out/puked. blood sugar fail. you need to teach me how to properly fuel when i'm running!
