3:6:9 Cleanse: Days 2 and 3
Updated: May 29
On Day 2 I experienced the most (physical) detox symptoms, which thankfully didn’t last long, but in the moment weren’t so comfortable.
Mid-Morning: I got a strange reminiscent taste of over-easy eggs my dad made me when I was probably around 12 years old WHILE sipping celery juice. (Old poisons drawn up and leaving at last!)
By late afternoon I had a headache, my skin was suddenly breaking out, and there were several trips, one after another, to the bathroom. Overall, I just didn’t feel great. But I was able to ride it out, knowing it was just those old “troublemakers” dying off and getting ready to leave my body.
Interestingly, I was reminded of how I felt when I was starting labor with my first child. Those reminiscent feelings of: Well, I’m in this far, there’s no backing out now!
Thankfully I was able to go to bed early, get a good night sleep, and by Day 3 morning I felt amazing.
Day 3 marked a real start of feeling incredibly energized, happy, light, and free.
I thought I already was happy, energized, and free BEFORE starting this cleanse, but I was able to see there’s a whole new level I can reach! Other people around me started to comment on this too, on how light-hearted and happy I appeared. “You’re back to your old self!” people commented.
On Day 3, I felt suddenly adjusted to this new way of eating lighter in the evenings. For me, the lime/lemon water and celery juice were already part of my daily routine, so the big adjustment was having a lighter, salad-only dinner.
Stay tuned for the big shift on eve of Day 4...
