If a medication lists a side effect, I get it. As I was researching colon cleanses, everything I read said the biggest side effect is dehydration. I drink a lot of water. I drink more than the suggested amount, but my skin is cracking and peeling really bad. My lips are chapped and my hair is dry. I have dry patches on my face. I do live in Utah which is the second driest state in the US, but this isn't normal for me. I'm trying to drink more and lotioning like crazy, but it's not doing any good yet :(
Well... nothing has changed measurement-wise... not surprising. I haven't been working out at all. I am ALMOST over my sickness though, finally after almost three weeks. It's down to a little cough now, so no more excuses. Time to eat better and work out!!!
I splurged last night at my work party. I didn't take the colon cleanse pills at all yesterday because I knew I'd be spending all night in the bathroom if I ate bad stuff while on them. I had dessert and Cherry Pepsi. I had been craving it for a while, so I decided to take a little break, but now I'm back on :) I even gave my chocolate-covered strawberries that came with my lunch today to my co-worker (they can go to HER hips...hehehe). After eating so much sugar and caffeine last night I couldn't sleep. I was up 'til about 2:30 am. I was sooo tired this morning.
I hope everyone has been more successful than I have the last couple of weeks :(
I'm Angie! I'm a 32 year old single mom of 3. I have an on again, off again relationship with eating healthy and exercising. I try not to "diet" but just watch what I eat and work out. I journal to hold myself accountable. Wish me luck!
