Bali Detox: Blog from the Bog Day 7

What I really want to eat Day 1 post detox

 

Last Day was so hard, my mind had obviously convinced itself that I was in for a treat the next day as I was bloody hungry for the first time since I started the cleanse. Didn’t stop until I feel asleep.

Bali Detox: Blog from the Bog Day 6

My oh my, did I crash this morning. Woke up at 4.50 and thought ‘let’s meditate’ then small-fry comes in 2 minutes later. After cuddling him in and then 3 hours of play, I felt like I couldn’t walk. Weird feeling, not heavy in the body, quite the opposite, but like my body totally put the brakes on.

Bali Detox: Blog from the Bog Day 5

Well it’s Day 5 and I feel so happy because we’ve had over 100 people alone clicking on the blog yesterday and are up to nearly 5000 views. I’m so pleased that people are connecting with this and all the words of support are really helping me. I’m feeling pretty confident that we can work with this detox company, so look forward to some incredible cleanse retreats and programs in 2013.

Bali Detox: Blog from the Bog Day 4

 

Thank goodness I woke up at 5.30am today, really couldn’t raise my head though but eventually managed a short meditation in bed. Today has been much more easy breezy for me. I honestly thought that I would lose my marbles not eating for this long but I feel calmer and more lucid than I have in ages. That said, I think the world would be a sad place if a tablet replaced food.

Bali Detox: Blog from the bog Day 3

 

Woke up at 4.30am again, weird as not feeling hungry. Meditated but I’m feeling very numb and a bit hollow. The thoughts were there, which I usually allow to drift away but they seemed to run around my brain going nowhere. Energy ok in the morning and I learned to keep some of yesterday’s coconut juice for the cleansing drink panacea today!

Bali Detox: Blog from the bog Day 2

Woke up at 4.45am feeling pretty alert and amazed that I’m not feeling hungry at all, considering the fact that I love food and eat often. Try not to think that I’m starting the day drinking that bland cleansing drink. I learned something yesterday. When you drink that have some coconut juice nearby to sip in-between slurps and then its fine!

Bali detox, blog from the bog Day 1

My friend testing out the board on delivery

Got the colema board delivered on Saturday on loan (I’ve aptly named it the sh*t machine). It’s basically a home enema kit and I’m told that I should relax and light some incense, put some nice music on and pop this tube where the sun don’t shine. We reckon most of our guests will opt for the colonic instead but I’m trying it anyway!

If you’re doing this detox with your partner around I hope they know you well. Mine’s away which I think was a good thing yesterday (v gassy!).

Am I excited about my next Detox program in Bali ?

So I’m in that pre-cleanse week. The one where you go out shopping all virtuosly and come back feeling proud of all the gorgeous fruit and vegetables you have in the fridge…until you hit around 7.30pm and you have the evening munchies and there’s nothing (and I mean nothing) palatable in your fridge to eat.
