Evening, day 5: hitting my stride? by jiminy .....
A good day on the cleanse (hm, hope writing that doesn't jinx me...)

Today was a groovy day; it's almost as if I'm having fun with the cleanse. ALMOST. I've been treating myself to lots of little non-food treats (a yoga mat and DVD, 2 new novels, an orange dress -- wait, what was I thinking with that last one? yeesh).
Meanwhile, back at the ranch, I skipped the lax tea entirely last night. Bad idea? My body didn't behave much differently -- I got rid of some stuff in the morning and the afternoon. I may try some tonight to see what my body likes best. The gas problem? No longer a problem. My secret? Water. Buckets of water, watery-er lemonades, water while I'm heading for the bathroom, water after I flush. Just keep it coming.
One funny -- not funny=ha-ha but more funny=pathetic and sad -- thing: I find that I take vicarious pleasure in others' meals. For example, my boyfriend mentioned that he'd gone to Taco Bell, and I seized the moment. "Tell me everything!" I made him describe that fast food chalupa for at least 7 minutes. I can't even eat chalupas (what with the gluten intolerance); I just wanted to mentally savor it. My guy said that it was simple food p 0 r n o g r a p h y, and that I should be ashamed of myself. Oh, please. I can get far more disgusting than that. Take a trip to Arby's and then we'll get down to business.
