Sorry for the delay...here are the details of the latest with the cleanse and me.
WARNING: This information may be too graphic for some..reader discretion advised!!!

I woke up Saturday morning with some cramping in my stomach. I went to the bathroom and surprised things weren't as bad as I was expecting. Later, I went to my directions to see what was on the cleanse agenda for the day. So the cleanse calls for 1 quart of water and 2 tbsp. of sea salt..chugged. So I chugged. It was horrible. I felt like I was full to the brim with my scarey saline and thought I was going to throw up. BUT! I kept it down. I sat for about 10 minutes not moving waiting for my stomach to settle. Then once it settled..it hit me. There were some kids that needed to be dropped off at the pool. Luckly, I had prepared myself. There was extra toilet paper in the bathroom and a pile of People Magazines, that were waiting to be thumbed through. They came in handy. This time was subtle. Ten minutes later I was thinking WTF! It seemed like in 20 minutes everything that I drank had exited...there were no kids, just a pool if you get my drift. TMI I know, but for those that are considering the clease I feel it is important information to know. Once that was over I wasn't in the bathroom anymore...for that reason anyway.

Later, my hubby woke up..we layed around for a bit, I offered to make him breakfast. He declined and opted for some cereal and ate it in the other room. I didn't know at first, but he didn't want me to cook him breakfast because he knew that I wasn't going to be able to enjoy it. Love him. While he was eating his cereal I started preparing the LemoNasty.
3 Quarts of Water
1 cup of freshly squeezed lemon juice (5 small lemons)
1 cup of Organic Maple Syrup Grade B
1 tsp. of Cayeen Pepper
Surprisingly the LemoNasty wasn't that bad or I was starving. I had a quart of the LemoNasty by 2pm.

We had a wedding that afternoon so leading up to it we were getting ready to go and I was trying to convince my hunny it wasn't going to be that bad. And of course it was a beautiful ceremony. Except for the sun beating down on my head..it was an outside wedding. Due to the sun and the empty stomach I developed what had seemed like the worst headache of my life. I didn't take anything because there wasn't anything in my stomach and it wouldn't have worked anyway. After the wedding we went to my parents to visit and if I were eating, to eat. We hung out..dinner was ready and I noticed once I was sitting by myself that every one had left the room to eat, which was odd because we usually eat together in the living room. I was appreciative..they didn't want to eat in front of me and they were very supportive by not tempting me. The food smelt sooo good...and I don't even like hamburgers.

The headache remained and my head was playing with me. At that time all I could think about was food. How hungry I was...I kept staring at my jug of LemoNasty...then chugging, nothing was working my emotions were messing with me and my head was still pounding. I had two full quarts so far and one left. I decided that I needed to go home and get to bed so that the next day would come and I could start over. What sucks is that my hunny and I barely get to spend time with each other because of our work schedules so I didn't want to go to bed right away. I couldn't take it I was starving, my head hurt, my stomach was in knots..I wanted to have a breakdown...so I caved.

Dammit, I didn't want to do this. I only made it 24 hours. Why can't my actions overthrow my head. Dammit! I did have the best grill cheese sandwich of my entire life though. After my teeny stomach was full I went to bed. I made it to 10 o' clock. I felt bad for my hunny, but I was exhausted from not eating all day. I fell asleep and when I woke up my headached was gone.

This isn't over...I will have the full on cleanse. I just know this time not to start it on a weekend, not to have a kitchen full of fresh food, and not to do it when you have important plans that following week that involve food. My step son's birthday is next week and I want to be able to eat pizza when we go to Chuck E Cheese, or eat his birthday cake or have a glass of tea...real tea when we are watching him open his presents. I spent over $50 on the ingredients for this thing, I will over come it. Apologies, if I let anyone down that was considering the Master Cleanse. I know now what not to do on it. Next time, I will last more than 24 hours. So this is why I didn't post last night...I was dreading this post, but I feel better.

For those that will commence with the cleanse...GOOD LUCK!!!

Well this is it. The time has come. Today is the night before the fast. I have finished my first cup of Smooth Move or what I would like to call the Poop Tea. TMI, but it fits the occasion. It was pretty bland, but ok enough to stomach. I will probably go to bed soon and prepare for the what I am anticipating a rude awakening. Those details are for tomorrows post though.

So...Happy Friday!! Today was good. My morning was productive. Got some things done at the office and watched the clock til it was lunch time. I was meeting my best good friend...we will call her Kitty for lunch today and decided to have my last lunch in style at our favorit place to eat. BUENO. I had the chicken mucho nacho and a Dr. Pepper. It was everything that I wanted it to be. Kitty and I spend some time catching up and exchanged photos of eachother when we were pounds lighter...the not so BUENO days. She took some before pictures of me so hopefully I will be able to post those soon. We both went back to work after lunch and the remainder of the day dragged like a bad movie.

Finally it was time to go home and see my hunny. First I had to make a stop and get my remaining items that I needed for the Lemonade, or what I like to call LemoNasty. 32 lemons I bought and some tools to make everything. We grabbed some food from KFC. My "light" Last Supper was a salad. I would have preffered what my hunny was eating, but I suffered through it. Later we watched the latest Adam Sandler movie and when that was over we had some extra energy and hung some mirrors that have been waiting for the right time.

And thats about it. So this is the preview post of what is to come for the next 10 days. Yes 10. I hope they are speedy. I am sure there is better details to follow tomorrow. Chat tomorrow same time, same place.

So I emailed my friend this morning and she sent me the steps for the Master Cleanse. At lunch today I bought all the ingredients for the Lemonade or what I like to call the LemonNasty..but I shouldn't judge just yet. I decided that I am going to start on Friday (tomorrow) in case there are any surprises in the bathroom. I would hate for something happen while I am driving to work. So I plan to log every day and what I am going through so those that are interested know what takes place.

Moving on....I am home watching you guest it Sex and the City...making some tea and making something to eat for dinner. Chicken Noodle and Grill Cheese..yum. I don't have any plans tonight, just to wrap LC's gifts and do some cleaning up around the house. Tomorrow should be interesting.

Hey You...Hey You...Hey You....It seems that is all I here when someone is referring to me at work. It is sooo irritating....my boss knows my name why doesn't he just say it?? I was going to post a huge rant about it, but I decided not to. So anyway, today was ok...it rained all day..it would have been a nice day to stay home with the windows open and chill. I was really productive which was much needed. When I got off worked I came home and changed then headed to target. I was on a mission for a Hot Wheels Gorilla Race Track. Next Friday is LC's birthday and that was the only thing that he asked for. Of course we are going to get him more than one thing, but the track had to be the gift. I was dissappointed when I couldn't find it, so I had to send my happy ass to toys r us...and of course I found it. I picked up a few things then headed back to the house and of course had a detour to my mothers. I showed off the gifts that I bought and we were able to catch up. So we were having a conversation and my moms best friend came up. She came to visit last Sunday and has lost 35 pounds from the Master Cleanse diet. I called her and she is going to send me the recipe and I am going to give it a shot. I read some testomonies about it and there are a lot of postive results. Hopefully she will send me everything tomorrow and I can go to the store and get it started...so when I do start it I plan to keep a daily log of my progress. Well the hubby is home now....time for some QT. Chit Chat tomorrow. Night.

Well it's that time again. Another Monday, a new week. Below you will find the events of my weekend.

Friday: Left work, arrived home with my hunny waiting for me. We had plans to meet up with my Dad and brother to go to a haunted house. And that is exactly what we did. It was soo funny to see Dad get spooked. we finished the evening off with some dinner and then headed home for bed since it was late.

Saturday: Slept in...it felt so nice to sleep in. Later after some lunch we met up with J&J. It was the day that they were to pick up crib #3...we have a truck so we wanted to help them out. Then we went back to their house ordered some chinese, started some crafts, then went out for some ice cream. My husband and I left and went home and watched a new movie that we have both been waiting to see..The Notorious Bettie Page it was very good. After the movie we went to bed.

Sunday: Sunday came quickly. I had plans to go to the grocery store, run some arrends, and do some domestics. Unfortunately, my husband wasn't feeling well so he stayed home from work. In that case I posponed my plans and traded them in for a lazy Sunday. It was nice to be able to chill at home with him since we have not been able to spend that much time together. He is feeling better.

Oh and a pleasant surprise I got an IPOD..I am soo excited to get it. Now I don't have an excuse not to work out because now I have my music. So hopefully this will work out.

Today: I was up at 7, did the whole work thing, went to the grocery store, and now I am comtimplating when I am going to get up and clean up the house. Wish me luck!

I love this time of year! When I left work this afternoon the cold front came in. It was calm with a touch of wind that made the season feel more real. Its fall. My favorite time of year. The new season also brings Halloween, and of course the holidays. These holidays are going to be the extra special for my husband and I. (Now for the good news) LC's mom sent me an email today with an attachment. This attachment was a confirmed reservation for 2 flights down to Texas. Meaning LC and his Mom will be here for 5 days looking for a place to live...because they are moving back!!! I am soo excited...I couldn't help but cry when I was reading the email. The best part is..they will be in town when LC has his birthday and we will get to spend it with him. The thought of them moving back has always been something tha I have hoped for since the day they left and the day of her saying they are coming back to Texas was today. I have been waiting for so long. I am so happy I wanted to share it on my blog. This is news worth sprending. I will update as we near Nov.1 and of course post the progress of the visit and the move. Thank you for being here for my Day 3. 27 more til this whole blog thing sticks for good. Toodles.

So here I am...dear blog, day 2 and I came back...are you proud?? Today was a regular day. Woke up, got ready for work, ate some breakfast then started my day at the office. It was a normal day. Nothing special. This evening I went to J&J's for some company and dinner and a chance to play with the kiddos. Now I am home in my comfy clothes, watching some Sex and the City waiting for the hubby to come home. Just plain blah at the moment.

However I did receive some good news today. We may have a date for LC's return to Texas. Our fingers are crossed for December 1st and hopefully we will get to see him for his 6th birthday which occurs next month while they are here looking for a place to live.

My apologies for the dullness of the blog, hopefully the remainder of my week will be a little more eventful. Great I have the hiccups now. Anyway, p.s. much needed props to my GIRL for showing me how to change the font on this blog. Hopefully it wont be so plain now that I know I am able to add some color and style.

Nighty night dear blog.

I guess one of my weaknesses is starting something and never finishing it. For example, my blog. My secret friend that I could vent to whenever I wanted. A friend that was always there when I needed it. A friend that let me be bitchy, excited, immature, hyper, or plain borning. How many friends let you do all that and more and still be there for you. Well...my blog has...except I haven't been very nice. My apologies for the neglet and reading other blogs without signing in to you. So I Do. This is my solomn vow to be a better friend. I will turn to you if I have a worry, or new news or a good ol pic of Britney. Let's start over...can we be friends again?

So here I am nine months since my last blog. Crazy, life has change quite a bit. To put you up to speed short and sweetly...my best friends son was born on my moms birthday. I was the in case of emergency call and actually got to witness childbirth..it really is a miracle. Lil'C moved to NE (this was and is really hard for us to deal with,) work started going down hill, I was interviewing at my old job and was turned down. (LC = Lil'C) We flew LC here for the summer. It was a great time and we missed him so much. There were baseball games, road trips, swimming, and parties. I quit my job in August after I was offered a fabulous Marketing postition at my old company. I accepted. Mid month we took our second vacation together to the Northeast with our very best friends J&J and their two children. I saw Philly, and south Jersey..North Wildwood to be exact. It was just want we needed. We had an exquisit condo with a view of the Atlantic. A week later were home and back to realty. Work started to take off and I am still learning so much 2.5 months later. I was able to work my first Conference and it was everything that I expected it to be..Exhausting and Fantasic. I hope to be apart of it next year.
So this year has had its ups and downs, but overall everything seems great right??? Well once you are up you eventually start coming down. My husband has had an unfortunate schedule change. Its HORRIBLE we never see eachother right now. We have one full say off together. I realize that there are worse things that could happen, but this is me being selfish and want to spend time with my husband..we are still newlyweda to me. Fortunately, there is a light at the end of the tunnel. The schedule is temporary 3 months is the verdict. Speaking of temporary..I receive information from LC's Mom that they are moving back...this I have heard before and this time I hope that its true. Today was the first time that I have communicated with her in 9 months. It felt good to talk to her and for her to acknowledge the fact that I was mad at her and that she understood why. My fingers are crossed and everything else in hopes that they move back. So that's it. I think that we are pretty much up to date...simplified.

So why did I come back??? I have lots of extra time right now so I decided that I am going to attempt to blog at least a few times a week and a run ha! Even though my time will fill up in the future, but they say you develop a habit after 20 something days. Let's give it a whirl. This is the completion of Day 1...I blogged..hard by the way...too bad its to dark to take my run. There is always tomorrow. Good night my loyal blog.
