I am starting to go a little crazy. Every ad I see for food looks great and I am starting to hallucinate like a character in a Bugs Bunny cartoon (I see people as giant chickens and hams that I want to eat). The hunger pains are letting up a bit, but I often get headaches or feel weak.
On the bright side, I have lost around 10lbs. I want to keep at it, but it is getting hard. When I think about doing it for another 5 days it sounds impossible, so I am approaching the subject matter like a recovering alcoholic. One day at a time.
Becky, my girlfriend, read my last post and asked why a talked about pooping. I explained to her that this is a food blog and poop is just the opposite of food. If you looked at the word 'food' in a mirror it would almost spell the word 'poop'. She seemed a bit embarrassed by the whole thing, but she is not one to talk because she quit the cleanse after 6 hours. I found her on the couch eating strawberries and nutella.
Someone should make a colored motivational bracelet that people on the cleanse can wear. Like those 'Live Strong' ones. But maybe these would be brown and they'd say 'Poop Strong'.
