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.
