Edesias Spring Cleanse Day Five!

Edesias Spring Cleanse Day Five!

Good morning! Today is day 5 of my cleanse and the end of my water fast. I haven’t eaten solid food since Wednesday lunch time and nothing since 8pm Thursday eve, that’s a 36 hour water fast. I feel slightly sick this morning and a bit light headed, was very hot in the night and woke a few times for a wee. I am looking forward to a smoothie this morning and a warm nut milk maybe, see how I feel. Today I will ease myself back in gently with only liquids until tonight when I will have a lovely salad with some avocado and a few nuts. Going to eat light and raw at the weekend and then back onto another cleanse on Monday morning for week two. Next weeks cleanse focuses on cleansing out the colon, I will increase my exercise next week to at least an hour a day of high intensity exercise. Next week I will really start to feel the benefits 🙂 A cleanse brings up emotional stuff we push down with food, I did have a few tears last night and a few moments of panic about certain areas of my life! This is quite normal when we are clearly out our shit (literally) I recognise these feelings from many cleanses before so I just went with it and allowed those feelings to surface, recognised them and allowed them to move on. The only constant in life is change! Go with the flow of life, the ups and the downs! I realised yesterday how we do not always appreciate our food as we should, I was watching people down the seafront gobble up food without enjoyment or gratitude! I would have savoured a grape yesterday! I do take time to enjoy my food mostly but I had fallen back into the trap of addiction. Food is more addictive than most drugs, food is a drug! We use it to cover up feelings, comfort us, make us fat so know one will notice us, make us thin so people will admire us, make us ill to sabotage ourselves. It really is so powerful. Unlike drugs and alcohol, if food is your drug you cannot avoid it! If your an alcoholic you can avoid the pub or the alcohol section of the supermarket. Food is essential to life, we have to eat so you cannot avoid it, food is shoved in our faces wherever we go. The mind is what we need to master not the food! Love yourself enough to nourish your temple not punish it! I’m off to make my smoothie now 🙂 have a good day x

Day 17 only 4 days to go!!!!

Standard

I am feeling very motivated today. I have created a gorgeous no-meat sesame ball after being inspired by yesterdays dinner of raw falafel. I put some chilli, onions and garlic to marinade in some olive oil overnight. For lunch today I had a chilli salad with no-meat balls and avocado pear. I have had a busy few days and needed something filling and comforting. This hit the mark it was yummy! I am having a pear, pineapple and orange juice for dinner tonight. I have been busy on the computer today preparing my courses I will be teaching over the next ten weeks. I have three courses running for parents at local schools and one for a drug and alcohol drop in centre. They are Raising Hopes and Aspirations, Healthy Lifestyle, Tai Chi and Cooking on a budget.
I love my job and feel very honoured to work with diverse groups of learners. I learn something new on every course I teach about myself and others.

Day 15

Standard

Day 15 last week of my 21 Day Garden diet Raw food Cleanse!

I am really looking forward to this week as I can be creative with the menus.
Today I had banana and orange juice breakfast.
Peppery salad with nut dressing and avocado.
I skipped a meal today because of working so many hours.
I have decided to have a juice of some kind for breakfast or fruit. Experiment with additions to my salads.
It is colder here in the UK and im less tempted to eat cold meals. I remove foods from the fridge in advance and I have used the dehydrator just to take the edge of my salads.

Bring It on!

A hobby of mine is taking photographs I also enjoy editing the images. This one below was a beautiful flower from the south of France. It reminds me of Beauty Within each and everyone one of us.

Day 11 Water fast

Standard

Water fast! It’s been an interesting day, it’s odd because I haven’t felt hungry. No hunger pangs, I think my tummy is getting used to the emptiness feeling. Its liberating knowing I can do it! I’ve only had water with a few slices of lemon in to flavour. I cooked a meal for the family, well heated actually. It smelt good, I had a bath and meditated whilst they ate. I’ve been working all day teaching Tai Chi, drove quite alot. I’ve had no ill effects as yet. I have felt great today, full of energy and very happy. I am ready to sleep now though.
Looking forward to a juice in the morning.
