My Essence of Vitality Challenge-Day 3 & 4
This truly is an experience. First without being completely explicit, I experiencing my monthly visit from my “Aunt Flow” simultaneously as I am doing this detox. Normally I experience severe cramping but I haven’t felt any yet…hmmm. I will have to ask Chef Ahki if this is common. My mental clarity has heightened and I feel less cluttered. I have NO APPETITE what so ever, which is not like me at all. I am also starting to break out on my face slightly. I am assuming this is a detoxing side effect. I am no longer afraid of drinking the tonic lol. Don’t get me wrong, it is still very bitter, but I don’t have to pray before I drink it any more..lol. Because of my lack of appetite, I have to force myself to eat. I have had apples, bananas, and oatmeal for the entire weekend. I feel like I am in preschool. I will be experimenting with cauliflower “rice” for dinner tonight. I will also be measuring myself tonight. My waist measurement was 36 inches right before the detox, I can’t wait to see if any progress has been made yet!
It’s funny because I just realized that Thanksgiving is this week!!! i am already preparing myself for all of the questions that i am going to get. The obvious one being, “Girl, why would you chose now to do a detox?”…lol. To which I will reply, “Why not?”. The way I see it, there is always a reason for people to celebrate with food. If it’s not Thanksgiving, it’s going to be Christmas, then New Year’s, then Valentine’s Day, etc, etc, etc.
I will continue to keep you updated throughout my journey!
Let’s Get Clean Together!
