Detox Days 8,9 and 10

So still going strong!  

The challenges and fears I had upon starting this journey to change how I eat, how I view food, becoming aware of what I eat and why I eat it.  Those fears are all being dispelled.  
As my body become cleaner, the toxins leave, my thoughts become more clear.  

Its has still been a roller coaster of emotions, just not as big of one.  

Monday after my juice fast on Sunday, I couldn't wait to chew on something!  My body felt empty, not just from having nothing but liquids for a day, but it felt like something had left.  I don't know how else to explain this other than the fast knocked something loose, something emotional and left a cavity that needed to be filled.  

My cravings kicked in as my husband brewed his coffee, made his toast, spread the jam.  I SWEAR I could smell it as the jar opened!  Sugar cravings kicked in, ( I am once again thankful I did not buy the little chocolate bars for Halloween)  I might not have been able to resist a Reese!  

All of this kicked in with in seconds of waking.  That was when I noticed that my sense of smell had increased and my old habits were rearing their ugly heads!!
I opened the fridge, got my veggies and fruit ready for my juice and stomped them back to where they came from.  Adding all the nutrients to my body allowed the craving stop, my mind cleared and all was good.  

There are many reasons I needed to change how I eat, one of those reasons is creeping towards me in a couple of days.  I am due for my period any day and other than the effects of the detox, which are subsiding greatly I have no signs that I am about to get my period!  Now I haven't gotten it yet, but a few days prior I'm usually feeling breast soreness, slight low back discomfort, sleep patterns altered, (meaning I don't usually sleep!)
Sleep has been great!  Very restful, no mood altering,(becoming irritated at everything!)   Its just been good.

I'll keep you updated!!
