Early to bed, early to rise? I was asleep by 8:30 and woke up at 4:30. That is 8 hours of sleep so I guess I’m okay. Keeping in mind that milk does have tryptophan in it and I am drinking milk that gets warmer during the day (I leave the gallon jug out all day on my counter). I’m not surprised that I’m so sleepy so early each night. Did you know that pasteurized milk destroys the tryptophan? So if you are trying to go to sleep by drinking warm milk from the grocery store, it won’t happen.
My day was pretty usual, drink milk and work. I also started some preparations for coming off the milk cure in 3 days. I started a batch of kefir and a chicken bone broth in the slow cooker. I might not be able to handle the kefir on my first day coming off the cure, but I am sure that I’ll be back to my regular kefir shakes after that first day. Bone broth is pretty much a staple in my house and I love it not only as an adjunct to recipes and soups, but also as a hot drink.
Not only did I feel fine, but wait for it. I actually did a workout today. True I’m back at Week 1 Cycle 1 for Body By You, but I did something and I didn’t start at the easier exercises. I’m still at the same level of exercises I was doing before, It’s just that I’m at the easier 2 sets of 12 in 2/3 minutes. Coming out, I felt hot and tired, so not bad for 30 minutes.
Detoxing symptoms started tonight. Runs to the restroom meant I stayed upstairs and close to one. Thank goodness for the iPad, streaming video and blue tooth speakers.
And once again it was an early night. To bed and asleep by 8:30. I’d love to stay up later, but my eyes won’t stay open.

Another slight weight gain today. Totally normal for me.
Glucose is so normal and low, it’s almost boring. But yay for boring. I’m probably going to track this another week after I finish the milk cure to see where it goes.
My tongue is getting slightly whiter each day.
