Lesson Learned

Well, that lemon drink started tasting foul to me.  I think it was partially the maple syrup.  I slowly drank less and less and this morning I woke up at like 6:30 feeling like HELL.  Literal Hell…I wasn’t sure if I needed to go to the ER or not…that bad.  Brent got some maple syrup and juice into me and went to work.  I tossed and turned in bed, trying my darnedest to keep it down.  Finally I called him and told him to come home.  I wasn’t sure what was going to happen to me.  I was actually really scared.

I was incredibly nauseous and my whole body felt weird.  I was shaking and faint.  BAD.  I was also getting cramps from the “runs” and I had to go and once I was up I just couldn’t keep it down anymore.  Out all the juice came but I felt SO much better.

My fear was that I’d feel that bad soon after puking and I’d have to go to the ER.  But I felt much better after, slept a while and now I’ve had some veggie soup, fresh grapefruit juice, some electrolytic drink (a natural one) and some broth and I’m feeling a lot better…just kinda raw.  I made Brent get organic canned soup because I couldn’t fathom making soup at that point but I will now.

Anyway, lesson learned.  When on a fast and only drinking juice to keep you alive one must actually drink the beverage even though it makes them gag in the end.

Bye bye lemon cleanse!  You served me well!  I now weight 151 and I have a whole new wardrobe that has just opened up to me.  I’m feeling very slim!!!  Woooot.


  1. Ooh, that doesn’t sound good at all! I’m glad you’re okay, and so amazed that you lasted all this time without eating. Way to go! Celebrate with that broth! Mmm, broth. 😉

  2. Wow, NOT fun, huh? I wonder if what you experienced was a virus leaving your system from the cleanse? When I did the sugar control thing, I had a similar experience though mine wasn’t upset tummy, just feverish and weak. Congrats for pulling through!

  3. geez, i hope you’re okay? I was reading another blog where someone was doing a cleanse and she actually DID have to go into the doctor because she was so sick…

    take care, and rest-up my dear!!!
