The Master Cleanse: Back in Action! Day 1

Well, I have decided to do the Master Cleanse again to refresh my kidneys and Colon. Today is my first day. Feeling okay right now. I actually crave this lemonade. (Sick isnt it?) I really felt I needed this cleanse again due to my eating habits over the Thanksgiving...and the upcoming festivities! Ha!

3 Month Progress Chart

Having a visual of the weightloss progress tends to help show just how much hard work a person has down. I logged into my BallyFitness BallyNutrition site and decided along with updating my fitness and weightloss reports, I would screen capture it and place it on my blog as a reminder. I worked hard and played harder. The pay off: Feeling better about my health and overall physical appearance.

From the looks of it, "Man, have I come along way.". I feel good. It feels good to accomplish goals you never thought were achievable. If only my personal trainer could see me now. Hopefully I will get to see her in Atlanta in December. I am going to cry. I used every bit of information she gave me. I took baby steps and it is only the beginning of a long journey. It will be a challenge and a surprise to see me maintain my weightloss. I know my heart, liver, kidneys, brain and lungs are loving the exercise. I wanna stay out of hospitals. Ha! My yearly weigh-in phyisical won't be so bad.

The stress of my birthday month can REALLY put it on me. My car registration, SMOG test, CA driver's license, switching over car insurance...Sheesh! And I've got to do all this around my birthday. WHERE'S THE REESE'S PEANUT BUTTER CUPS!

Now, last year I would have reduced to food to soothe and calm my stress but not today. My mind is in a different setting and I have goals to acheive. So, I read affirmations and talk to friends as a stress relief.

Just realized my gym membership with be expiring in a week and the renewal rate is way too much for me right now. So, I will have to find another way to get my cardio vascular exercising and weight training in. I will have to rely on me and my discipline even more.

Lunch: 2 hardboiled eggs, Water
Snack: Celery w/cream cheese
Dinner: 1 Chicken Breast and a serving of Mash Potatos w/Gravy, Water
