Today I need to be a rock that bends to no wind. This is day 9 of this cleanse and I’m only allowed my supplements and all the fruits/veggies to can stuff into me…it’s 9:30 am, I’ve technically eaten breakfast twice already, and I’m frickin starving. This will be the only really hard day, but I’m going to frequently remind myself that the extremely intense labor of my first child, for which I had NO epidural, lasted 22 hours– this is nothing compared to that. I can make it until bedtime surviving on only fruits and vegetables. I can do this.
That fact that I didn’t get enough sleep last night isn’t helping my will power, either. But that lack of sleep is my own fault, I stayed up way too late sitting in my bedroom floor sorting and folding laundry while listening to my low & slow playlist (think Keith Sweat, R. Kelly, Luther Vandross…oh yes). Even though I was slaving away taking care of laundry, it provided my introverted self with some much needed alone time that missed out on over the weekend. I always need that solitude to recharge my socializing batteries, think clearly, makes plans, and of course listen to my own music without it somehow always ending up on one of the kids’ playlists. I can’t wait for Kansas to make up its mind and decide that spring is here to stay, then I can start going out for my nightly walks/runs again…fresh air, moonlight, inhaling the cedars, hearing owls, seeing bats flying and deer running around.
This morning, I want to let you all know about the liquid daily vitamin I’ve been taking with all my new health products. I had never taken a liquid vitamin before starting this one at the beginning of March, I had always taken the hard, pill-form multi-vitamins before. When taking the hard pills, I never noticed a difference in how felt before versus after taking them. I just assumed that my insides were functioning better since I had taken all those vitamins and given them what they needed. HOWEVER, liquid multi-vitamins are a game changer. I actually feel a difference on the days I forget to take it, I feel scattered, distracted, sluggish…but when I take them I feel mentally rejuvenated, alert, focused, grounded. Not to mention, it’s liquid so it starts absorbing into your body immediately, no waiting for you body to try and break down a rock hard pill. I’m sure many are very curious about the taste of a liquid vitamin…I was, too. This product is also made with all natural, non-GMO ingredients. The best I can describe it is like a super, extreme, syrupy, juice concentrate. The flavor is not terrible, just very intense fruity-vegetabley-herbaly. A quick 1 oz shot of this and I’m good for the day. Highly, highly, highly recommend this, I seriously can’t say enough good things about this product.
I’m keeping this post short and sweet today since today’s most intense day of my cleanse has visions of cheeseburgers dancing in my head. I can’t muster the creativity to link a song to today’s post, so I’ll leave you with the last song I listened to last night before calling it quits on the laundry…according to my playlist, I stopped in R. Kelly’s “It Seems Like You’re Ready.”
Wish me luck, send me all your good vibes today, I’m going to need it!
