I was NOT well this morning upon waking. Whenever I detox I wonder why I go back to eating the crap when it hurts this bad to give it up. Oh well. I took a nice bath and dove right in. It was better than yesterday, so I know I am on my way out. It just may take a while to get out. Going to bed early last night helped, and I plan to do the same tonight.
I’m gearing up for my final exam. My last class was yesterday and my final is the weekend of May 7-8. The exam is delivered at 5 PM EST and it is due back on at 9 AM EST on Monday AM. Those who have completed the program before me have told me it has taken them 30 plus hours. Intimidating. I am hoping that the detox gets me peachy clean and ready to rock and roll by Friday night. I’ll be a pretty busy girl.
Upon completion, however, I am will have completed graduate level coursework at Assist University, the leading training and certification program for Virtual Assistants. If you’re going to be a VA, you want to be an AssistU VA.
Graduating means finally getting my business of to a real start. Yes, I have been working in it since 2008, and it has been my only source of income since September of last year, but without graduating, I didn’t feel ready to really dig deep and get into things the way I should be. I am raising rates, which will be an adjustment with clients, but this will create a reserve of time for my internship, additional training, and additional clients. I can begin doing higher level work and managing things instead of the task based work I have been doing. I am excited to move onto this stage and really begin developing my business.
Today, I kept on plan.
- B: Thin Mint Shake
- L: Garbanzo Quinoa Casserole and green salad
- D: Amy’s Gluten-Free Non-Dairy Pizza and green salad
I went grocery shopping tonight so I can do more raw tomorrow. I am trying to avoid processed foods, so the pizza was off plan a bit (flour) but I balanced it with a lot of raw greens and I did not eat the edge of the crust so I feel somewhat balanced. I have cravings for carbs now, so I am drinking tea and keeping busy to work past them. Processed food is a drug.
Last year day 3 was April 3. It was fun to go back and read that post today, as it seemed to be one of the harder days on my first all -out cleanse. I am glad to have it behind me.
