Cleanse Day 9: Deep in it

Day 9 dawned a little earlier than I’d planned.  Woke up and couldn’t go back to sleep.  Felt like “mental” cleansing was going on today.  Felt anxious today until about 2pm then my mood lifted.  Incredibly busy at work and seeing some very interesting cases.  We had a bad batch of frozen cherries that have given the last 3 smoothies a weird flavor which is not fun when that’s 3 full meals.  I’m excited about being almost halfway done BUT I can’t say I’m seeing or feeling all the great things I’d expected.  I will say my seasonal allergies are better, my blood pressure is lower, and I’ve lost about 6 lbs.  My weight loss has stalled out the past 3 days but I’m still staying true to the cleanse.  My energy is lower and I kind of crash between meals.  My cravings are still pretty intense.  But, like I tell my patients when they feel discouraged halfway through a treatment plan; “you’ve only just begun a process and journey to health.  Health is a journey, not a destination.”
