Was realizing that should have took before and afters you would never have believed it was the same room oh well at least it’s organized.
Day 3 of cleanse almost done looking forward to another great night of learning at Church tonight. Excited to see everyone even though it’s only been a week. Thanks for those that were there for me, it was a rough one but I’m here and I may not know my future but at least I know who holds it.
So yeah I’m on another month normally some people do this cleanse for a month to detoxify and they are right as rain. I am planning on doing this particular cleanse for 6 months that’s how long it may take for my system to start acting like it’s supposed to instead of misbehaving. What I mean by that is I have IBS and it has ruled my life for the past 5 years and before that if we look into my history it’s seems to have been an ongoing issue since I hit puberty a lot of my illness and allergies hit when I hit puberty. Doc’s don’t know why their explanation is that it’s probably due to the fact that most women illness are hormonally based which is why puberty tends to be the trigger that worsens symptoms. Well conventional methods of treating IBS have done more harm then good and so I’m trying this and so far I am loving it.
I have more energy before the idea of cleaning would have thrown me into a tailspin but nope I have gutted my whole room in a matter of a couple of days, no not straight but a task that would normally have taken me a month or so only really took me a couple of days to do. I’m sleeping better, meaning that when I do get to bed, I sleep soundly, and not intermittent sleep which is very nice. I wake up rested. Which means I am not tired during the day and have stopped napping.
I’m eating more then I was before because I’m actually learning my body’s cue and listening to it and feeding it when it tell me that I am hungry so I am eating more on this then I did previously I was the queen of the one meal a day before because I wasn’t hungry or I was too busy to eat (when I worked). Also because of the IBS didn’t want to eat in public in case there were adverse effects to what I had ate.
Now I eat 3 times a day and snacks and I am drinking tons of water, another thing I have had a problem with. So far I am loving this and my IBS well not completely gone it has toned down a bit. However when I do eat things that are bad for me like I did before I went back on the cleanse Poutine with Dad on Thurs and then someone treated us to KFC on Fri. My body tells me that it doesn’t like it by sweating it out and getting rid of it.
Okay what your probably really wondering is if I’ve lost weight well I haven’t been on a scale I can tell you that I can now fit in to jeans I had 10years ago that are a size 12/14. I am now pulling on my jeans like jogging pants. the bloat is gone from my stomach and I don’t have that puffy feeling I used to have. I see my shape again and not just fat. I can’t wait to get on a scale because I think I’ve lost another 10 pounds I hope which would mean I’m well on my way to my 70pd goal. Hopefully by adding the exercise this month that the pounds will come off as well as I will get toned at the same time, so I will start to see shape and muscle yeah. I’m doing it all without going to a gym (no money) I’m hoping to post a before picture very soon and another one after the first month and follow from there so you can see the progress as I do.
This week now that the room is clean and I’m not focussed on that is to focus on growing my side businesses, and getting a job. I have decided that if I’m not employed by the 8th of April by my own means that I am going to go get a job at the call centre in the interim till I can find a job(up my alley)that I will be satisfied at this for now (not a long term solution). I look at is as the lesser of two evils.
No offence to those that work in a call center but it is the kind of job that I can put in my time and leave it there when my shift is over which means I won’t be expending much energy. Which means I’ll have more energy to concentrate on growing the side businesses and because the bills are being paid the stress will be gone which means I will be able to just maybe take more risks.
So for now so bills can get paid and I can have some benefits I will be hopefully getting a job in the call center now if they won’t hire me I am really going to think there is something wrong with me. I will continue to apply for jobs while working there but I will be able to get back on track with bills and even just maybe start paying down my debt. It’s not the worst thing I can definitely think of worse things to be doing.
So that’s the plan for this week:
- Grow Side Business (talk to 10 peoples about business)
- Sign up for some freelance bids
- Blog/(Still debating about domain $17 can’t afford right now, nope not kidding)
- Get stuff that I’m getting rid of out of the apartment (39 stairs x 10, yeah there’s some of my exercise for the week)
- Exercise start working out using ball at least 3 times this week, go for a walk at least 3 times this week. start lifting weights (that I borrowed 3 months ago)
- Continue on cleanse (if interested let me know and I’ll provide the website privately)
- Spend more time reading and less time watching.
- Continue with my courses/upgrading skills.
- Continue to live one day at a time
- Enjoy the rest of my time that I have off because it is over very shortly.
Also one more thing thinking of become public if for nothing so that I truly have no more secrets in my life. what do you guys think Public or anonymous?
