Vegan Cleanse Day 19

Monday, April 19, 2010

Today’s Meal Plan:

  • Breakfast:  Bob’s Red Mill Mighty Tasty Hot Cereal with Cinnamon, Blueberries, and raw Sunflower Seeds
  • Snack: Kichadi with Nutritional Yeast, Kohlrabi-Jicama Salad, Raw cookies
  • Lunch: Vegan Protein Shake, Maca, and Greens
  • Snack: Soaked Almonds
  • Dinner:  Unknown at this time, celebrating a friends birthday, so restaurant is up to her.

Mostly raw, I would say 60/40.

Did not make it though the night last night, woke once.  Did Kenpo X this AM and felt great.  I am officially off Celebrex for a week now and I have not (knock on wood) seen any worsening in my knee joint.  In fact, I feel like I am still taking it.  Diet is everything, I guess!

I had to weigh in and take measurements today for the end of that challenge I was doing.  I have lost 7.4 pounds since 3/31 and starting this new way of eating (I have been asked).  Much more impressive, is the way my clothes fit.  I have lost 1″ off my waist, and 1.5″ off BOTH my bust and hips.  It is a nice amount of puffy fat loss and I am thrilled.  I know I will see equal to better results on 4/30.  What is most important, though, is how I feel.  And I feel GREAT!

Acupuncture appointment this morning went great.  It doesn’t hurt at all and she said that my issues were related to dampness.  It is why I get the chills, have cold feet and hands, why it takes SO MUCH for me to sweat while I am working out… all of these things are affected by retention of damp in the body and that directly affects the sinuses as well.  So I was glad I had planned Kichadi today (it is warming) and I ate that instead of my cold shake right after my appointment.  I go back Saturday for another appointment and am hopeful she can help my sinuses.  She is confident that she can, I guess time will tell.  It beats the cycle I was going through.

Ganglion on the wrist

She also said it would help the painful ganglion I have on my wrist.  I have had it drained and it always comes back.  She said that is also a symptom of “Dampness”.  So it would be awesome to have that go away because of this treatment also.

I sneezed in the middle of the appointment and continued to lie there, post sneeze, freaked that I blew out some needles, but when she came back in she said they all looked fine.  Over-all it was a good experience, but it will only pay off if I find some relief, so I will be open minded for at least a month (just like chiropractic care) and see if I see changes.

Other than the good loss news and the visit, it was a normal work day.  I’ll have to report about my evening meal and any new feelings tomorrow.  For now, I am off to finish up the business of my day.
