Today’s my 8th day on the MC and wow, I told myself time would go buy quickly and it sure did! It’s really great how the only time I blogged was when I first started the MC and now when it’s almost over. I’m really great you know, at keeping track of all the things I “try.” Today I am super tired because I went to bed late & woke up early for my 8:30am class—really a pain in the ass. It seems that my body refuses to wake up until 645am & that really sucks. I don’t know if it has to do with MC or not, but I do remember last week waking up early due to stomach cramps from the laxative tea. But then again, I had cramps the same time this morning as well, except I was just supposed to be up earlier.
I started the MC yesterday and oh man, it hasn’t been killing me — but it’s killing me. Haha. Last time I did the MC was 2 years ago (April). Recapping ;; yesterday, I felt quite weak and at night, it was the worst—I couldn’t go to sleep because of the headache from lack of food.
Today— It’s been alllllright. I threw up most of my SWF (Salt Water Flush) and that made me super sad. But, I guess I shouldn’t have chugged most of it either. It’s absolutely horrific. I hate it. The first 3 days are supposed to be painful, your body is trying to realize that yes, you’re not feeding me Jerk.
Nevertheless, I’ve felt stronger to “continue,” but oh my, the cravings I’ve gotten. Well, let me make a list of delicious foods I’ve gotten cravings of:
- Chocolate!! Oh my.
- Cupcakes, cupcakes, and uh, more cupcakes (thanks to How I Met Your Mother).
- Fish, chicken, turkey.
- Coffee! Ugh!
Can’t wait till I feel more confident about the diet, hopefully after the 5th day. Excited to cleanse my body & feel better. It’s been a tough couple of months & I know I need this.
I have assumed that the world has greeted me back with the same enthusiasm that I have greeted it with. Considering that this is supposed to be my first post (ever) on a legitimate blogging website, aside from the elementary love of Xanga, I was unsure what exactly to write about. I followed the detailed tutorial that WordPress provides you with on how to go from “zero to hero.” And I must admit: I AM IMPRESSED. Maybe because I am a rookie, but I was very appalled at how much help someone who wants to write can receive from the internet if they are unsure on what exactly to do. I even checked out the Plinky page that WordPress has set up if you really have not taken anything from the “brainstorming” exercises that the tutorials provide you with. Needless to say, I did not need to use Plinky.com, just not yet. Which makes me question exactly where I am going with this blog post. I could have simply chosen one of the numerous topics that I have written on my “napkin” as my first blog entry. Yet, I have chosen to write about my experience pre-first post and exactly what I am doing at 1:30 in the morning.
Unfortunately, when one begins to question themselves in their own writing, things can become a bit complicated. But just a bit. Because although one of my teachers always told me to never mention or refer to your reader as “the reader,” I must assure my reader that there is a conclusion to what you are reading. There is a purpose and before you move onto another entry or get up to answer nature’s call, or perhaps tell someone in your home to lower the volume, I must tell you that you are the reason why I too have joined WordPress.com. And have finally launched on my personal journey to the depths of literary devices and technology in a combination of what we refer to as “blogging.”
I may be a late bloomer to this timeless trend but like they say, “Better late than never.” And like, at the same time, a popular rapper says, ” … But never late is better.” Thus, before I launch my rocket of ideas, criticism, opinion and catharsis of writing, I must thank WordPress for being one of the most popular blogging platforms mentioned in the search engines, and giving me the opportunity to attempt to discover what my niche truly is. Before I dive into wonderful posts of blissful context, I must appreciate those who set the direction for such euphoria to even occur. Thank you.
P.S. I can’t seem to figure out that perfect way to placing images into the blog.
