So I'll get the book, read it, and if I decide to do the cleanse will probably just do 3 days to see how it goes. I certainly don't want to put my body into starvation mode, which is what the doctor says is the only thing that really happens and that is not good. He was very against it.
What I do know is I'm calling Jenny Craig tomorrow to get back in with my old counselor next weekend. I lost 20 pounds on it, it's easy, it's familiar and it will work. Then to keep it off. That is a whole 'nother blog!
Today's class was pretty good. It was my second day in a row after missing many many days due to extreme partying followed by extreme flu sickness. I felt a little dizzy still and although I did every posture, my strength is certainly not up to par. On a good note, I was very flexible for some reason. Strange how that works! I noticed too that with all the sweating we always do, yesterday and today were different than normal. It was salty as opposed to just water (with a regular practice, the sweat is clear and feels like a "shower" from the inside out) and I felt, well, clammy is the only way to describe it. So of course my body is just working hard to expel the toxins from the self inflicted damage and flu both. I am so anxious to get back to normal....to feeling well and healthy. I try not to take things for granted and this was a nice reminder not to take my good health and sense of well being for granted. Once you learn what it feels like to truly feel well and healthy, there is no going back. I could not bear to go back to being sedentary, stiff, sore, tired, sad.....everything that comes with not taking care of yourself! Today was nice....I am almost back in the saddle.
