Feeling Good

One of reason why I love to cleanse is how good I feel during and afterwards. I was driving to the Farmers' market with my kids yesterday, and it suddenly hit me that I felt better than I had in several weeks.

This time of year, I normally get into this lethargic, its-getting-colder-and-darker-so-I-don't-want-to-get-out-of-bed, funk. I had been in that mood prior to starting the cleanse on Sunday. But, after just four days of just a "mini-cleanse" I now have more energy. Getting out of bed isn't a struggle, and I am more clear headed.

Now, if I could only muster up the ambition for a deeper cleanse right after the holiday.


  1. Hmmm... you make it sound tempting...

    I borrowed your excellent idea and arranged an Appalachian Trail walk with three friends and assorted kids. It was SO NICE. Thanks for the great idea.

  2. I would love to do a mini cleanse next week before Thanksgiving. Can you offer some hints? What type of program do you follow?

  3. I basically just ate fruit, vegetables and whole grains for the week. No meat, fish, dairy, eggs or wheat. Also, no alcohol, etc.
