Day 7 was felt easier than the prior days. Although I was at work and around food all day, I wasn’t tempted. The only thing I do miss on a daily basis is coffee. Not for the caffeine content, but because I love the taste. I’ll have to really decide if I want to start drinking it again after I finish the cleanse.
Day 8. I was painfully tired in both my classes today and it really worried me. Thankfully, I have a doctor’s appointment scheduled soon, but ironically it is on the first day after I am planning on ending my detox. If I start to feel a deeper decrease in energy, I may end sooner than I planned.
Wasn’t tempted by food today until I went to Whole Foods to buy more maple syrup and lemons. Just being in the produce section made me want to devour all of the fruit. I also really miss cooking. It’s weird to come home and just drink liquid for dinner. But I remind myself that this is temporary, and worth it for my health.
On another note, I have been sleeping better, which is why my tiredness concerns me even more. I should be more energetic, not less. Also, my skin looks so much healthier. You can definitely notice a change in my face.
I am off to bed. I have an early midterm exam in the morning.
Oh, and as of tonight, I have lost 22 pounds.
