I have to say I am writing this on Day 16 and I am looking forward to the end. Yes, I appreciate the weight loss and my clothes feel better and my joints feel better but I cannot believe the amount of dishes that I have from this cleanse.

This entire week I have been battling allergies (I think). From Monday with the extreme sore/dry throat through out the week with coughing all week and a day of sneezing and blowing my nose. It’s unbelievable the amount of crap coming out of my throat. I’ve been tired too. Going to bed at 9:00 a couple of nights. The last couple of days don’t seem to be so bad but some stuff is still there. Not sure if this is part of the cleansing process or what. Never really had allergies before so not sure. However, my husband has experienced none of this and he reports he does not feel one bit different – still experiencing achy joints. I however, am no longer experiencing achy joints. Last week I felt like I had a lot of energy – this week is a much different story. Very interesting.

I have Tuesday and Wednesday off so will be outside doing a lot of work – hopefully sweating some of these toxins out. Woke up this morning headache free. Thank goodness. After two days straight of headaches – I’m glad to be rid of it. They say it’s the sugar leaving my body – good I’m glad it’s gone. My husband however has yet to experience any of this.
My husband and I are participating in a 21 day cleanse which started yesterday, April 14, 2012. It is called the Standard Process Purification Program. Pretty much veggies and fruits (organic preferred) for the entire time and then day 11 we get to incorporate a seafood such as salmon, bass, pollock (serving size is the size of your palm) and organic chicken. We also consume two shakes a day. We add whatever we want to the shake in the form of veggies or fruit and then we add their powder which consists of ground up whole foods. We also take capsules throughout the day which also contain ground up whole foods. I was going to post every day but I think I will just post every third day or so on what we are eating, how we are feeling and if any weight loss. So here we go.
Lunch: huge salad with home made approved vinaigrette dressing
Supper: Stir fry veggies (can only stir fry for no more than 4 minutes) with brown rice and some of the vinaigrette dressing drizzled throughout
Snacks: carrot sticks and apple
Water: drank 60 ounces (first time in my life I think I’ve ever drank so much water in one day)
Effects? Felt a little hungry but not as bad as I thought. Many bathroom trips – this is great – ridding my body of all these toxins!
Weigh in: I lost 2.6 lbs. My husband lost 2.8 lbs.
