May 7th – Day 7
- [same as yesterday, since I didn’t finish them all]
- Plus, the Kid made her own version of a smoothie that she ended up not drinking because she didn’t like it. Her goal was just to make it purple. She added
- handful of raspberries
- 2 handfuls of blueberries
- handful of strawberries
- handful of kale
- a cup of water
- Smoothie 1 – 9a
- Smoothie 2 – 1030a
- Smoothie 3 – 130p
So today I didn’t make any new smoothie – I just kinda combined what was left in the fridge and resigned myself to restarting the process on Day 8. That means for dinner, I ate solid food (and not the best choices – health-wise).
I can now taste the emptiness in some foods.
Poop status: still no poop. I remembered haven’t been running in a while, which usually helps; so I’ll go for a run in the morning.
Mood: I’ve been highly irritable today. It’s probably PMS. That could also explain the bloating and lack of poop.
We fall down, but we get up — Donnie McClurkin-style. Some time ago, if I had eaten food during a time where I was supposed to be drinking just smoothies, I would have thrown the whole fast away.
But I think this is worth picking up where I left off and continuing. I don’t plan on drinking smoothies for the entire 90-days.
The goal is to evolve my diet, reintroduce the good things, eliminate and replace the bad things, and have a system (cuz I love systems) in place for when things may go off track.
Where to Find Stuff
The recipes I’m using are a modified version from this book: The 10-Day Green Smoothie Cleanse. (This is an affiliate link, which means you click, you buy, I get a couple dollas.)
I replaced some of the greens and fruits with some that are on the approved Dr. Sebi Nutritional Guide, which you can download here..
You can also follow me on social media where I might be doing stuff that may or may not be interesting. But I’m documenting so that in August (my birthday month), I can look back and see what kind of growth took place.
