My challenge this week is to complete a 5 day cleanse. Day 2 did not start out all that great and just got kept getting worse.

I woke up feeling very thirsty and drank 2 large glasses of water (64 oz.) before I was even really awake. My whole body was sore. It felt a lot like the feeling you get in your muscles after a deep tissue massage or after working out for the first time in a long time. After the water and my morning shake I felt better. Interestingly, I wasn’t really hungry just sore all over.

Drinking Water

Before breakfast, I had 2 glasses (64 oz.) of water. Before lunch, I had added 3 more (96 oz.). For whatever reason, I am very thirsty today… In the afternoon I had 4 more glasses (128 oz.) for a total of over 8 liters of water. I don’t think I have ever drunk that much in one day before, but I really wasn’t trying to drink a lot – I was just really thirsty.

My Day

Breakfast: I had my Digest+Cleanse™ at 7:30 and then my Pure Protein Complete shake at 9:00 with 2 oz. Ningxia Red.

Lunch: I had some cantaloupe today as a snack before lunch and then around 1:00 I had my Digest+Cleanse™. At 1:30 I had my second shake and Ningxia Red.

Dinner: Before dinner, I had another snack of some apple and then around 6:00 my Digest+Cleanse™. At 7:00 I had my third shake and Ningxia Red.

The Shake

The shake is a lot like protein powder drinks I made when I was an athlete in college. Here is what it looks like mixing it up:

Not Feeling Great

As I said at the beginning, my day progressively got worse. My daughter was sick with a cold/flu over the last two weeks and had a lingering cough. I don’t know if I have come down with it or if these are just the symptoms of the cleanse itself. My wife is feeling pretty similar so I’m going to go wth Day 2 just being rough. More on this tomorrow as I’m going to get some extra sleep tonight.
