day 13

Days 12 & 13 grooves and sleep patterns

Days 12-13

the last couple of days have been quite uneventful. as a matter of fact, i feel like i’ve hit my stride, gotten in a groove and pretty much slip in and out of my days on autopilot, not giving much thought to food… just fixing my shakes, snacks and dinner and enjoying an amazing sense of wellbeing.

for years, i didn’t sleep well at all and when i get super lax about what i eat and drink, i slip back into poor sleep cycles.  this leads to caffeine dependence, low energy, brain fog and daytime fatigue which leads to impatience and moodiness and no inclination to exercise…it’s really just a viscous cycle.  so if i had to pick my most favorite part of a 30 day cleanse….i would choose the healthy, productive sleep that results.   i fell asleep about 10 last night and woke up before my 4:00 am alarm.  if you only knew how uncharacteristic this is….let’s just say, i’m neither a morning person nor a night owl.

so the last 2 days were a breeze.  i was in charge of our small 4th of july dinner on day 12 and on day 13, i was on the go, but just packed my bag with shakes and snacks and water and hit the road. didn’t give it a second thought.  you’d be surprised how quickly this can become your norm. here’s a quick recap of days 12 and 13.
