Well I made it through today. Amidst the darkness of the day, there was a bright spot. I had a massage and for the most part, it didn’t hurt. I get massages every 2 weeks because my back is always in spasm or just screaming pain in general. The reason I actually started the cleanse was to see if I could eliminate the pain, or at least some of it. While I feel some soreness, it’s different from the regular pain. So this is a big and hopeful step. I still have bouts of headaches, but otherwise feeling decent. Had dinner at my neighbor’s and frankly it doesn’t matter what she cooks, it’s good. She’s doing the “Zone” so she is eating healthy as well. She cooked some zucchini in olive oil and lemon zest, and don’t you know, it was delicious! Sadly, though I could not partake in the salmon, which also looked delicious. Then she made me a smoothie with my supplements and protein powder and it was delicious also! All in all, it was a decent food day.
I’m off to bed and hoping for a good night of rest, except of course the 2 or 3 visits to the bathroom. Keep those recipes and good thoughts coming my way! 18 days to go.
