Welcome to day 9! Almost at the halfway point and feeling good! I slept well last night. Something I have been noticing though is when I wake up to pee a million times I also am sweating. I was told its normal, but just an observation.
Today was my second day experiencing the emotional lows. I have very little patience and am super irritable. I am seeing more of the "old Ashley" than id like to admit. I lost my patience with two different customer service reps today. I've really tried to be patient with morons over the last few months and I've done great, so it really sucks to feel like I'm moving backward. But I have to remind mysf this is only because of the reset and ill be normal again soon.
Went for a leisurely 2 mile bike ride rather than half marathon trainings scheduled cross training today. One part of me is feeling like I screwed myself by letting the reset interrupt my training. The other side of me is trying to remember all the testimonis that said they were faster post reset. If doing it and doing it for real without working out is going to make me faster anyway than it should be ok. I just hate the unknown!
I really enjoyed the sweet potato red pepper bisque for dinner tonight. As I've said before- I'm pretty impressed with the flavors of the food. A LOT of this is going to be worked into my normal diet.
I started drinking the detox drink with cinnamon. Deff helps a little. It's only day 2 of drinking it but it was better than yesterday. No gagging. No stuffy nose today either. My body aches are still gone for the most part but I am feeling some pain in my hip tonight. Felt that a couple times in phase 1 so I know it's reset related. I also had some pain in my knee that I had hurt way back when doing insanity on concrete every day. I read in the support group that pain from old injuries is very common. It's so damn interesting. It makes sense though, that more toxins would be built up in an area that's previously had an injury.
I thought in the detox week I would be using the bathroom more. Today and yesterday the ONLY time I pooped was in the morning. I also read this is common, but deff weird. I want to be flushed out! But I heard week 3 I can expect to go more frequently again.
I fell off the plan last night with a handful of raisins. I put them out of sight and will do my best not to slip up again. My slip ups are small, but I'd like to keep them to an absolute minimum.
Looking forward to tomorrow! I'm tired and very ready for bed tonight!
