I started my day with 4 teaspoons of ghee melted in a half cup of almond milk. My last day of the week cat my accounting job (YEAH!) and I packed up the same fare.
Hubby and daughter were having ham and eggs for dinner. I asked if hubby wanted a bagel with that. He gave the whatever you want to do answer. I came back with, "What I want to do is bite your head off - a simple yes or no would be helpful." Bagel it was.
I was really tired and obviously cranky. I remembered one of my classmates had scrambled an egg into her kitchari for some protein and to make it through. I did the same and added lots of greens. My daughter said I could pretend it was a burrito. I opted to think of it as an omelet. I did feel better after dinner.
I started the day with 6 teaspoons of ghee melted in half cup of almond milk. Sipped some water and headed to my girlfriend's house for our Friday morning 6 AM walk. I had more energy than I'd had in days. By the time hubby got home from his midnight shift at 9 I was on my second load of laundry, the plants were watered, the bathroom cleaned, the house vacuumed and I had enjoyed a bowl of kitchari with steamed rainbow carrots on top.
I'm pretty sure I will not achieve the goal with water but I'm trying. I'm supposed to drink half my weight or half my ideal weight in ounces. I'm getting close. It's not that I hate water. I drink water every day. I just can't drink that much of anything. Plus the whole moving into the bathroom is not an option I want to consider.

My energy stayed up all day and I didn't want to bite anyone's head off. Wondering if it was a combination of cleanse and accounting rather than just the cleanse getting to me. This is a very real possibility especially since it was my first week back after vacation.
I had more time than the previous two nights so I steamed up a big batch of broccoli and pea pods to add to dinner.
I must admit that I normally have a voracious appetite. I can never remember to feed a cold and starve a fever or the other way around so I feed them both. There has never really been anything to make me loose my appetite. This cleanse has done it. Not in a sickening type of way but in a rather boring type of way. I know I can change it up with my steamed vegetables but lets face it kitchari and steamed vegetables three meals a day with no snacks and water is not very exciting. I'm eating slower and can actually push the plate away when I'm full. And I really haven't been starving. I'm not feeling deprived in the amount of food. I am satiated. But, for someone who loves to cook and doesn't make the same dish twice for weeks or even months this is really rather bland.
