I have been writing about my blood cleanse and for the most part, it has been uneventful. Drinking the herbal tea was palatable and easy! As I enter the next phase or my “organ” cleanse or day 8, 9 and 10, I realize that I must focus on the end result!
Let me tell you a little about my 8th day… It started with 16 oz of prune juice… An hour later, 16 oz of apple cider… A 1/2 hour later, 16 oz of distilled water and then alternate the apple cider and water the rest of the day. Then, once in the morning, noon and night, I take 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Oh, and if I got hungry, I could eat an entire apple, core, seeds, and all!!! (NO OTHER SOLID FOODS!)
Well, I will not bore you with all the details but, the bathroom became my best friend. I saw and experienced things that I do not want to share but I will say this… For those of you who have accused me of being full of crap, I can confirm… I AM NOT, ANYMORE! 😉
I was told to “lay low” for the next 3 days but I have or will not be a good girl.
Yesterday, around noon, I drove to Orlando to take my 80 year old mom & 84 year old dad, for a 30 minute bike ride. I worked on getting guests for my “extended” weekday show. (Just in case you didn’t hear… Now you can hear the show on Monday through Friday, except Thursday, from 9 am to 10 am ~ at When You Need A Friend!) I then cooked dinner for my husband, son and our daughter Ashley who came over with our grandchildren for dinner and to spend the night. As our granddaughter, Bailey, exclaimed between bites of food; “Play with me Dama, let’s go upstairs!!!” The question running through my mind as I ate my apple… How can I tell an almost 4 year old that “Dama” needs to “lay low”? Needless to say, I played with our highly energetic Bailey and went up and down the stairs over 50 times before going to bed late. Truly a blessing to have that kind of energy… 😉
I am writing this post on the morning of day 9 and have already had my 16 oz of prune juice, apple juice and water… As I prepare for The Lillian McDermott Radio Show, I wonder how many unexpected noises will come out of my body during my show with Space Coast Honor Flight? So, for the record… please accept my apologies for anything I might say or do as my body is “bubonic” and it is being tested to the max! Anywhoo… After the show, I am purchasing food for The Ronald McDonald House with my younger daughter Brittney so that tomorrow, our family can cook and serve a meal for these wonderful families. (Approximately, 50 people.) Even though I will not be able to have a morsel of food… I cannot wait!!!
“Laying low?” Not this weekend or week!!! But I do hope you will tune in on Monday from 9 am to 10 am as I start on a new journey with a cleansed body, mind & spirit!
