12:30 – just had a cup of coffee with milk, was getting a bad headache…

finished first bottle of lemon mixture… getting ready to make another batch to drink throughout the day.  hungy…but trying to ignore and just look toward friday night sushi!!

yesterday was not really a cleanse day, it was a pre-cleanse day…but i ate very light..woke up feeling lighter and with no puffiness under my eyes!

8:00 am  so this morning i made my fresh lemon juice water maple syrup drink.  it’s pretty tasty kind of like a lemonade..maybe a little more tart.  i meant to make a cup of coffe this morning, even though I know i am not supposed to, but–i get migraine headaches.  i started to drink the lemon mixutre and then lost my appetitie for coffee…my stomache feels just a tiny but queesy…i look my morning supplements.  and that’s about it so far…will post more later.

ok…it’s been a long season of bad habits and too many cookies!  i am going to try to do another detox…starting today, monday…one pre-detox day of healthy eating – no sugar, meat carbs… and then 3 days of just water, lemon maple syrup mixture and detox supplements.  here’s to day 1!! 

so far I have drank about 2 liters of water…and have taken my herbal supplements.

this morning i had 1/2 banana and for lunch I had kale salad, veggie burger, broccoli rabe and raw root veggies.  i am now relaxing with a cup of tea…and tomorrow will begin my first day of “no food” and just lemon maple water all day long…

the name of the detox is m’lis…

Isagenix day 5, take 2

August 23, 2008

this morning i lost another pound, for a total of 5 lbs!

i did eat more than i was supposed to yesterday.   i was supposed to fast but i ate 2 hard-boiled eggs, melon in the morning, walnuts and the isagenix chocolates. 

today i will have a shake for breakfast with the accelerator pill and a shake for lunch… a nice yummy dinner (probably sushi!) and another accelerator pill…  the shake days are pretty easy.  the shakes are HUGE, thick and filling.  pretty yummy…

isagenix cleanse, take 2!

August 21, 2008

ok, so it’s been about 2 months since the last cleanse…and yes i gained most of the weight that i lost back, BUT…i was terrible.  so I am going to give it another go…do the 11 day cleanse, lose the weight and then go to smaller, healthier meals and see if I can keep it off…

i am on day 3, i have lost 2 1/2 lbs already…

cleanse day cheats

June 27, 2008

i was just re-reading the info for this cleanse, you can have a snack on the “cleanse” days:

one whole food snack if you need it:

apple, almonds or walnuts, green salad with a little olive oil, hard-boiled egg


just wanted to post quickly…

today was really really hard for me.  i get migraine headaches quite often and today i was graced with a bad one…could have been brought on by the lack of food, or the absense of my morning coffee… whatever the reason, i stuck it out and stayed on the cleanse…

i woke up, took the accelerator pill.  it seems this pill has only natural ingredients, apple cider vinegar, pau d’arco, ginseng…thankfully it did not make me jittery.  i was a little worried about taking it, but it was fine.

 (had to run out for a bag of ice at 7:00am because my ice machine is broken) made a chocolate shake, it’s not bad; tolerable, a little hard to drink fast.  drank a ton of water all day today.  i never drink water, so this was a big task for me.  i did great.  ate the gross chocolate wafer things they like to call “snacks”.  only had 3, could not choke down the other 3…

took the 2nd accelerator pill before dinner was afraid to take it and mix with my migraine rx…so I waited, no problems.  had a nice dinner.  turkey and veggie wrap sandwich with a glass of unsweetened iced tea and a small salad.  i don’t think i was supposed to have the tea…but i had too. day one, done!  

isagenix?

June 24, 2008

the name of the diet/cleanse program whatever it is, is isagenix.  i should receive it today via UPS so maybe i will start tomorrow morning!!  ok hope i can do this.  sounds hard – espeicially since we will be summering by the beach…no cocktails?  no big yummy breakfasts!  i can do it!  

yesterday i fell off the wagon, God that is SUCH an understatement… not only did i fall off the wagon, it ran me over!  i was horrible.  i had one of those days (really the past 2 days) where i just wanted to eat whatever i wanted…you know what i mean? …i just wanted the freedom and luxury of eating!  i had a delicious hero of crusty italian bread with grilled chicken, prosciutto, fresh mozzarella, roasted peppers, pesto with pignolis, olive oil and pecorino cheese!  and homemade pizza…and a coke! there’s more but whatever…
