Recap of how we are feeling

by Lori and Michelle on October 11, 2009

Happy Sunday everyone!!

Well we forgot to tell you all yesterday how we were doing on our cleanse…today is day 4. Most people that have done cleanses say day 4 is the turning point…where you start feeling better, mind is more clear, etc.

Yesterday we were pretty much exhausted all day until we had about 3 cups or so of our fresh spring water! Now people told us we would notice a difference, but like most things you have to experience yourself before you can actually believe it. So when we first drinking the natural spring water we both felt “funny.” Sorry I do not know how best to describe the feeling…we could tell overall something was happening.

Then later on last night we started to feeling amazing!!! Both of us had all this energy (now we still were not bouncing off the walls or anything) but just felt BETTER! The water really helped give us LIFE!! Amazing, huh? We even stayed up till about midnight doing work with NO NAP. This is truly amazing because past Saturdays we were so exhausted that we either have to take a nap or we crash (go to bed earlier like around 8pm) and sleep for 12 hours. Not this time though!!!

Looking back on it, I guess when we first drank the water it was filtering our bodies, which is why we felt weird at first. Then we both had clear heads and just felt “lighter”. We are so excited to see how we do today with the water.

We did not eat much at all yesterday, after having the natural spring water we were not hungry for dinner, so we just had a small apple.

Here is a recap of what we ate/drank yesterday:

  • Each had 2 small apples
  • Had one green smoothie, each got about 20 oz
  • We split a kombucha tea (the only reason we are sharing them is because they are a little expensive, so we are savoring them until we can make our own)
  • Small chia pudding
  • Each had about 3 cups of coconut water
  • Each had about 3 cups of natural spring water

Overall we were not that hungry, which is I guess is part of the reason for cleansing. The goal is to give your body a break from digesting and focus on cleansing…but also to help us learn how to eat properly. Learn to eat when our bodies are hungry not when we are mentally hungry. For some reason this cleanse has been a lot easier than ones we have done in the past. We have been able to bake for others and not have one or two cupcakes for ourselves. This is a huge improvement for us because we love food, especially desserts, and to be able to learn to control on cravings is amazing. I will admit both of us are looking forward to having a some “food” again but it is not controlling us anymore : )

Ok next up, the fun stuff, haha.

Warning: Poop talk ahead

We did not have time yesterday morning to do an enema, and neither one of us was successful in the bathroom : (

But this morning we got up, had our lemon water, and headed for the bathroom. Enema time. I have to admit I still cannot believe I am able to do one, they used to scare me, but now it is no big deal.  We both had a great toilet session this morning….so feeling so light and awake!!!

Now with natural spring water in  hand, colonics scheduled this week (Lori goes Monday, I go Tuesday) we are really excited to see how much better we will feel. So far each day we are feeling better, lighter (both mentally and physically), don’t rely on food to comfort us but to eat to NOURISH US!

Stay tuned….Twins are coming to life, haha.

Okay me hungry so off to make a huge green smoothie.

Till next time,

Michelle and Lori

Can I just say how much I love you girls? You’re both such an inspiration; I feel like doing a cleanse myself in the near future now!

I havent read this text and dont plan to. But I read your water recap and I did so much research on water, water systems, RO, spring, natural, tap, filters, etc…I swear for the year of 2008 all I did was research water filtration systems. It’s daunting, isnt it. Glad you guys found something that works for you!

Yes I was having trouble finding really good info on water…everyone has their own opinion. So far we like spring water : )
