...is over. I've done seven days of this and I don't think I've ever gone this long with actual food, unless of course you call lemonade actual victuals.
DAY 6 went good, but I started feeling weak then and have ever since. I'm fine, as long as I don't do lots of exerting activities...perhaps my body is telling me to rest. I like that idea, lol...but with only 11 days until my sister's wedding, resting is the last thing I or anyone else around here can do. I've been saving all the lemon rinds from the lemonade and then I put them in my bath...it makes it smell really pretty and you can use the lemon rinds for a natural type of scented washcloth or sponge.
As for today, DAY 7...I'm tired. But that's Ok, only 3 more days of this and then I'm all done. Time goes by so fast lately, perhaps because I'm desperately trying to soak up and hang on to the minutes with my sister Elizabeth (the one who's getting married). She's moving about 42 hours away from us (which is 3 days of straight driving). We won't get to see her very often.
My beloved tongue is still white, but less, and my teeth have cast off their fuzzy sweaters and scarves (yay!). Tonight we're having company, the second time since I've started this MC. Goodness, it's hard to have company when you're doing this. Just like at lunch, Anne-Marie (my other sister) was making one of my favorite raw dressings for her salad. That was just sheer will power that kept me from licking it.
Yesterday I was desperately feeling the need to chew and I thought of my natural gum I got at a health food store...no food content, no calories, natural...definitely not a food. So that is my new vice and at the present moment, it's keeping me sane. :)
