Yesterday was my birthday, and I had a good one. Lots of love from friends, family, colleagues and my boyfriend. I received my favourite flowers and a few other gifts at work, and visited an onsen (Japanese hot spring) in the evening with my boyfriend.
Cleanse day five was pretty smooth. I drove to work and back and did a little walking throughout the day. I maintained good energy levels throughout, and had 2-3 little moments of glassy eyed longing as I contemplated what delicious things I’ll be enjoying at the end of these ten days.
Over all another good day. No mood swings. I remember the first year I did the cleanse I experienced some mood swings around day 7 or 8. Hoping to avoid those by being disciplined (making sure I always have a freshly squeezed supply of the good stuff on hand, and continuing to avoid seeing food).
So far so good.
