Day 5: 5-Day Cleanse

Lindsay GrimesCleanse

Overall, I felt the best today. My body felt like it’s adjusted to the cleanse. I wasn’t flushing toxins out of my body all day. It was as if my body has come to terms with what I was doing. However, my brain – not so much. I have been thinking about food all day. I already have a plan on what I will make for dinner tomorrow. I have bacon ready to go for the morning. My mind cannot stop thinking about biting into real food. 8:13 a.m. Digest & Cleanse with 8 oz water 9:54 a.m. Ningxia Red 10:10 a.m. 2 scoops Balance Complete with 8 oz water 11 a.m. 1 apple 11:57 a.m. Digest & Cleanse with … Read More

Day 4: 5-Day Cleanse

When I went to bed last night around 11:30 p.m. I could NOT get warm. I was literally shivering under the covers. I had sweatpants on with a sweatshirt and socks, under a down comforter with a heater going in the room. I was so cold, Kevin got my an extra blanket. I asked my friend if it was normal for your body temperature to drop during a cleanse, and she said “totally normal”. Who knew?! I had NEVER heard that before, but it makes sense. Your body needs food to produce energy. And since I’m eating less, my body is not producing as much energy. It’s kind of crazy! Was not expecting that! My schedule: 8:43 a.m. Digest & … Read More

Day 3: 5-Day Cleanse

The first part is from last night. I’m not sure if that 2 ounce Ningxia Red shot at 10 o’clock at night was the best idea. It’s now 11:24 p.m. And I’m just walking up the stairs to bed. I did get some photo projects started but I really need the sleep more. I really want to build a tiny house. I’m only slightly hungry as I lay down. It’s still night time. Have I mentioned how much I love food? Like love. 8:36 a.m. Digest & Cleanse with 8 oz glass of water 9:12 a.m. 1 scoop Balance Complete, 1 scoop Pure Protein Chocolate Powder with 8oz water 9:49 2 oz Ningxia Red 11:16 a.m. 1 apple 12:05 p.m. … Read More

Day 2: 5-Day Cleanse

Lindsay GrimesCleanse

So I tried hard to document my thoughts in my “notes” section of my iPhone to give y’all a real time experience of day 2 of my 5-day cleanse journey. I started last night and carried on into today. I’m headed to bed (10:50p.m.) and I’m getting a dull headache. My stomach wants to eat itself. I just heard a huge noise come from my stomach. It sounded like a beast. I need to go to sleep. This was my food schedule for the day: 7:56 a.m. Digest & Cleanse with 8oz water 8:36 a.m. 1 scoop Balance Complete, 1 scoop Pure Protein Chocolate Powder with 8oz water 10:50 a.m. 1 red apple 12:49 p.m. Digest & Cleanse with 8oz … Read More

Day 1: 5-Day Cleanse

Lindsay GrimesCleanse

*Please note today was a really hard day emotionally, so bare that in mind as you read this 5-day cleanse journal entry 1. Today, I started my 5 day cleanse and I was hungry all day long! I thought about food all day. And of course Carsen wanted to play kitchen cook. He made me strawberry cake, banana cake, coconut cake, hamburgers and hot chocolate. I mean, come on kid, help your momma out! Between the cleanse and a toddler who didn’t sleep well last night, I’m exhausted. I am not a picky eater, but have you ever sip on plain vegetable broth? Sigh. It’s going to be a long four more days. The Schedule: After a rough night of … Read More

The Night Before: 5-Day Cleanse

Lindsay GrimesCleanse

I start my five day Cleanse tomorrow, and I must say I’m a bit nervous. I’ve heard people can get grumpy, gassy and just all together not fun when they cleanse. I’m also excited! I will do this for five days and then start a 10 day boot camp on the 21st! A large goal of mine is to get healthy physically during 2016. Thankfully, I have a friend with a similar goal so we plan to do this together. My hope is to journal how I feel during this five day cleanse. I am going with Young Living’s 5 Day Cleanse  for a few reasons: 1. I trust the oils and oil supplements of YL and want to be … Read More
