This morning I woke up prepared to do the salt water wash. To do this wash, you will need 32 oz of purified/distilled/Spring water. (No fluoride or chlorine in the water.) and 2 Tb of pure sea salt with NO Iodine in it. You want to drink this either first thing in the morning, or in the evening when you have no where else to go. You want to finish drinking it within 10 minutes of starting to drink it, and the faster you get it down the better, so that the salty taste does not overcome your taste buds. Within an hour you should complete this salt water flush. You will be clearing your digestive tract. This helps to move the toxins that are being released from your body quickly, so that they do not hang out in your intestine and make you feel sick. And I don’t know if this happens to everyone, but for me, it made many of my cravings go away, and I actually looked forward to the lemonade and getting to just smell the fresh lemon before I hand squeezed it each time.
When I did this wash today, it was only 11 minutes from the time I finished drinking it until I had to use the bathroom. Because I have done this wash before I knew what to expect, so I had nothing planned for about an hour. I started this a little later into the morning then I wanted to, so I ended up starting the lemonade into my body a little late, which cause a little nausea, but nothing bad, but once I was done with the wash and that first 8oz of lemonade cleanse was in my system, I felt fabulous.
I consumed 56 oz of lemonade throughout the day.
I went to visit my sister to get some incense from her, since it helps me to relax and feel peaceful. I like to create a great environment for cleansing, so the aroma properties of the incense help me to do this. While I was there, I got on a special scale that my sister has, and found out that I was dehydrated, so I also added 32 oz of purified water to my intake, so that I was certain that I was getting enough fluids for the day. While I was there, I discovered that she was doing the Master Cleanse too, and I thought that was awesome!
My Progress with lifestyle changes prior to starting the Cleanse
While I was there, she noticed that I already had lost some inches in my chest, and so she measured me. While some ladies would not like to hear this, I am ok with losing inches all over right now, and I know that is where I start to lose weight first. My sister works at Victoria’s Secret, and so she is a pro at bra’s and other cute stuff. She measured me, and I was a size smaller, so she got me a couple of cute bras, and I was thrilled at that progress already just with the cleanse. Also while at her house, I realized that I had no craving for the chocolate cake on the counter, I had no interest in it, which was great.
I was not able to go swimming like I wanted to because the pool was closed since there was too much chlorine in the pool, and so I ended up having the kids go with my mom for awhile at the park and enjoying some alone time.
Day 2 was a really tough day for me in my personal life, and I just have to say that I am really truly proud of myself for sticking to it and not cheating, and staying focused on my goals. On to better health!
