Two Cranky Mamas

by Trisha-and-Amy on January 4, 2012

Trisha here…

This is tough, I have no energy. Am I the only one? It started with the lack of coffee this morning replaced by that Yerba Tea that made it possible to have a very empty stomach. I’m starting with just the elimination portion of the cleanse. Basically eliminating everything I love; toast, greek yogurt, french fries and donuts. But the hardest part for me is the sugar. This is really good for me, as it truly makes me realize how many times I reach in the cupboard for my ‘fix’. No handfuls of chocolate chips for me today.
I am sure my body will adjust, but for me no sugar means a cranky mama!
Tomorrow is a new day!

Amy here…

Trisha, stick with it mama! I know how sugar is your go-to every day. This is hard, but you can do it.

Ok, so I posted an apparently “violating” comment last night on Facebook so I promptly deleted it. Trisha, it’s in line with how your Yerba Tea emptied your stomach. I am amazed at how putting a tiny amount of flaxseed in my morning shake does the same thing. Part of this whole process is really to clean your system out — of all the junk we put into it on a daily basis. So I wasn’t trying to be obnoxiously gross, just reporting back! Sheesh!

Another thing that’s weird is what seems like a lack of eating choices. This is how humans were meant to eat — grains, vegetables, whole fruits. And right now we can have chicken and fish! Not sure what the problem is, but I’m feeling like I don’t even have any taste buds. Nothing sounds appealing. I made my friend Shauna and I a salad for lunch yesterday and it tasted like cardboard.

And I’m with you sister. I am soooo grumpy. I cannot believe how dependent I must have been on sugar, wheat and dairy. I worked out yesterday and I feel kind of flu-like right about now. I remember from the last cleanse years ago that this is totally normal — and if we can get through the next few days, we’ll start to feel normal…and then awesome. I think I remember feeling awesome, eventually? I’ll take ‘good’ right about now!

I actually thought the salad was delicious. But I also started feeling lousy late in the afternoon, so much so that my mom came over at 5:30 and sent me to bed. I woke up 13 hours later. Maybe that’s why my raspberry/rice milk shake tasted so good this morning.

Here’s to hoping that the wheels don’t fall off again late this afternoon.

I’m with you, girls!
