Today is the last day of the easy logging (as far as food is concerned) and then it is time to begin anew—finding out what foods may be affecting me/us that is. During the last few days I’ve had a few hard days but today has been a really good day of progress and feeling better (although it didn’t start out that way). I figure there is something I’m eating that is affecting me and I’m not sure what it is. As I reintroduce foods into my diet again I need to pay attention again to the things that may affect me.
Well food—same as yesterday—our lovely lemon, pure maple syrup and distilled water drink along with a crap load of additional water (over 100 ounces in all). But this morning was a little rough—I could not get warm! Usually it is my wife who is complaining about being too cold all the time, but since we have started this cleanse I have really had a harder time keeping warm—even my core body temperature has gone down by about 1 degree.
But with this my Blood pressure has also gone down. I have—for a number of years—been borderline high blood pressure (usually about 139 over 95 or something similar). I took my pressure yesterday and I was 93 over 79 I think. For having lower blood pressure I will take being a little colder any day—I suppose what it means is that I will have to wear a jacket more often than I have had to before.
Anyway… the shivering I felt in the morning also almost felt like me getting sick which I don’t want to have happen—my wife has had such a great cleanse this time while mine has not been that great, I just want to both feel good at the same time. The feeling went away by mid-afternoon and it has been a great day—physical symptom speaking—since then.
We both have energy and I am ready to try the cleanse for another day but my wife is worried, and I don’t blame her, since I am down to my low weight tonight and will plan on falling just below tomorrow morning so I probably can’t afford to cleanse again. For those of you doing this program before you lost the weight I envy you because it would have been easier on me if I had begun this while I still had the weight I needed to and wanted to lose!
