End of the Line


...the finish line, that is. Today was my 10th day and the final day of the Master Cleanse. YAY! I'm so excited to be done, but SO grateful that I did it. It was the best cleanse that I've ever done and I feel really good about it...now I'm excited food...real food. Bring it on!
This afternoon was really hard...I was super hungry and too busy painting to stop and prepare myself a drink. Oops...I got super weak and felt seriously sick. Then I went in and made supper for my family (they were all busy painting as well) before I got a drink. Thankfully I didn't fall over (altho' I certainly felt like it), lol. Anyway, I'm great now. :)
The first 5 days were easier than I thought, and the last 5 days were way harder. If and when I do this again, I think I would shorten it somewhat and definitely not do it in a time when we're super busy. It's only 8 more days till my sister's wedding and we've been working all day preparing for it and all the guests that will be coming here. I'm looking forward to when our life will slow down a bit...if it ever does, lol.
Tonight we have to practise music...so this is short tonight.
Tomorrow...orange juice and fruit! Yay!

I am so proud of your accomplishment!! It's no easy feat to not partake of food for any length of time. I wonder why the end of fasting is so much harder than the beginning? It's been that way for me too, but now I feel like I could fly. I've only been sleeping 3 - 4 hours ever night. It's like the lights are always switched on inside of me now!

Love to you...P
