Day 9 and it’s the first day I’ve struggled. I’m hungry. My energy is low and I want to curl up on the couch with a blanket and wait for the rain. .
Yesterday although I felt a bit overwhelmed, my energy was through the roof. 💥 .
I used to never pay attention to why I had poopy💩 Days. I just honestly thought poopy was normal and I sure felt poopy more than good. Now that I know what GREAT feels like, I know that poopy is NOT normal. .
Did you have trouble sleeping? 💤
I’ve worked hard to feel great, eating clean, not allowing the majority of my food to come from Sugar and carbs (it used to), working out consistently, and getting at least 7 hours of solid sleep nightly. .
So, even though I’m cleansing and can expect some poopiness, I still did a little gut check today. .
I figured it out pretty quickly. Our cute little puppy Daisy Jo woke me up at 3am (not so cute) to play. I normally wake at 4:30 and 1 1/2 hours lost is a big deal. .
Some people believe we can function on less than 7 hours of sleep per night. I’ll never be the one that tells you this. Sleep deprivation leads to cravings, hunger and yep, poopy. 💩
Plus a whole lotta other issues. .
So many woman who join my support group have trouble sleeping, I love witnessing their sleep issues disappear! .
My sleep improved so much when I started living healthy. .
So, the poopy 💩 is temporary, so are the cravings and hunger. My reasons for accomplishing this 21 Day Cleanse without cheating are way more important to me than falling off plan.
I had some hot tea, drank my midday supplement, ate my salad and soup and I know tonight I’ll get my solid 7-8 hours!
