1/28/09 - 8:46 a.m. I was able to chug the SWF (Salt Water Flush) in just a few minutes this morning but I noticed something interesting. I had a busy morning and got up at 5a.m. to do the flush. I got up so early that after I drank the SWF I went back to asleep. By 6:15 I hadnít gone to the bathroom and started to get nervous. I was going to be on the road in 45 minutes and that would be real messy if the flush decided to show up then. So I got up and got my boys dressed. After about 10 minutes I felt the urge to go, and about every 10 minutes after that. I wonder if lying down after doing the SWF is not such a great idea. Iím going to conduct an experiment tomorrow morning where after doing the SWF Iíll stay awake and upright.
Iíve already had 2 glasses of the lemonade and have realized something. Like last night, if I let too much time pass between lemonades I will get really hungryÖnot good. Iím noticing that as the days pass, the time between lemonades is getting smaller. Iím getting hungrier quicker. Maybe thatís a good thing. Maybe thatís how Iím going to have 12 glasses in 1 day. On the first day I did all I could do to get 8 down, not the case anymore. My goal is 10 today so I laid out 5 lemons to motivate me. Weíll see if it worked.
1:17 p.m. I just finished my 5th glass of lemonade and I have to say Iím feeling despondent, but I do remember reading in Glickmanís book the this a detox symptom so Iíll try to distract myself and hopefully feel better.
9:22 p.m. Well I made it to the end of day 4 and as I sit here sipping the tea; I can say without reservation that the Master Cleanse is extremely difficult. My hunger has been mild to non-existent until today. I suppose itís because I havenít had anything solid to eat in 4 days, Iím pretty sure thatís it. Eating is at the fore front of my mind. Everywhere I look I see food, itís like someone is intentionally running only food commercials while Iím watching TV. I have been telling myself all day to stop thinking about food and to stay distracted. OK, I have to realize that Iím going to eat again, and that this is good for me. Iím seeing the lemonade really starting to work, 4 days without food and Iím still going to the bathroom 3-4 times a day (and Iím not talking #1), itís not much but I definitely have to go .
Since I havenít mentioned to anyone that Iím doing the Master Cleanse, I donít have much of a support system. I know that, especially on days like today, having someone to talk to and get encouraging feedback from would be invaluable. What I do have is Glickmanís book, which not only has tons of information but also comments, from his website, from other people who are going through the same thing. I also have this journal. This is like my own private therapy session. Even as Iím typing this Iím feeling more positive and Iím looking forward to tomorrow when I get another chance to improve my health and move closer to conquering this difficult challenge.
