I didn’t sleep well last night. It was a combination of things. First, it was still 70 degrees outside at 3 in the morning. Yes, I was awake then. Even with all the windows in the upstairs open and a fan blowing from the window, it was still warm. I only slept with a sheet and even that felt like too much. Also, my stomach was really giving me issues last night. So I slept fitfully until 3am and then not at all. Today I’m a bit sluggish and tired. I really needed a better night’s sleep.
As usual, the first milk of the day is the most deeply satisfying. I love cold milk and the hardest thing on this cure is having to leave my milk outside of the refrigerator so that it warms up during the day. I don’t mind the room temperature milk, but I prefer cold. That first drink of milk in the morning is cold and sweet and just oh so good. I’m breaking a 12 hour fast and while I’m never hungry for it, it’s still a wonderful way to start each morning.
While my morning was pretty good, afternoon brought tummy rumblings complete with “OMG I’ve got to get to the bathroom now!” moments. Consequently I’m going to cut my milk down by another cup starting tomorrow. So I’ll be at 13 cups of milk or 8.6 ounces hourly. It’s interesting how the effects of the milk only happens in the afternoon.
It was a fairly rough evening. I did manage to get a detox bath in, which helped. Yesterday hit 90 degrees, so I gave in and turned on the Air Conditioner, that in turned enabled me to take the detox bath. I also ended up drinking 1 1/2 liters of water yesterday throughout the day. I didn’t realize how much water I drank until I realized my “Extreme Gulp” container which I use for ice water was completely empty. I basically had just over 5 quarts of liquid yesterday, (and let me tell you not as much came out. Anywhere near). No wonder I’m still feeling bloated.
I went to bed last night feeling vaguely hungry. I wonder if that is going to become a stronger feeling since I’m reducing my milk again tomorrow?

My weight is coming down again slightly. But I think its safe to say that this year I’m not going to see as spectacular a weight loss as I did last year and that’s okay. I went into this with no expectations and I’m still seeing something wonderful.
Click on the related post which showed where I was last year in my glucose levels. Now look at the table below. What an amazing difference. Not only that, but its been a much steadier downward path this year. I was convinced that I was going to see a spike in glucose levels this morning since last night’s test was so low. Instead, its even. Today was extremely even. I stayed within a 2 point spread throughout the entire day. I’ve never been that even in my life. I don’t expect that to continue, but wow, is that nice to see. Oh and for those wondering, the low end of a normal glucose reading is 70. So I’m well within normal range. (Had to check, I was getting a bit worried there).
My tongue is much the same as it was yesterday, white in the middle and towards the back, pink at the tip.
