Had a restless night, sometimes too hot and sometimes chilled, sometimes got “zingers” moving through my head when I changed positions.
Woke up this morning feeling like I now need to retreat and regroup. I give!!! I self-induced this headache and overall bad feeling by taking an approach which has proved to be too drastic for my body. I need to eat and rebuild my strength. I need some food I understand. The thought of drinking another protein drink, or having hemp seeds and stuff I never, never eat, makes my stomach flip. I need to work with my clients and that will be difficult under present physical conditions.
I am abandoning the detox, but not without learning some valuable lessons which can possibly benefit my clients. First, I believe asking someone to go cold turkey and eliminate EVERYTHING from ones diet all at once is radical. I would prefer a step-down approach…cut out caffeine first, for example, then dairy, then sugar, etc. One at a time.
This was not a failure! I tried and learned from the experience. No failure in that. There is no greater lesson learned than one learned experientially.
