Purification wrap-up (a little late!)

My Standard Process purification wrapped up a few weeks ago and time has not been on my side to post about it. So here’s how it went:

All-in-all I didn’t find staying on the program too difficult. The last few days of it were 4th of July weekend, so I had some mac-and-cheese at a party and then cheated a bit at our weekend in Edisto. The less I drank alcohol and the less I ate, the more I realized I did not miss it. I only lost 3 lbs, but honestly, I didn’t have a lot to detox in my organs, and I eat pretty clean, so that was to be expected. I still am dealing with a lot of the problems I had before, I’ll be working with someone to get to the root of the problem soon.

It’s been 2 weeks since I ended the detox and I found that having a few drinks or eating most foods, especially at a restaurant still makes me feel awful. Mark and I had a Sunday Funday last week. After a museum and a walk on King street we decided to go on a little pub crawl.
– We started with a beer and calamari at Amen Street…so tasty!
– then we went for the views and to soak up some sun and a Corona at the roof top bar at Market Pavilion
– we decided to keep it classy and go to the bar at Husk…a wheat beer from Holy City and some pickled fried green tomatoes were just amazing!
– After all that beer and food, we were hungry, so we went to the Bull Market on King for sandwiches. I figured I had so much wheat in the beer, who cares if I had bread too! Caprese sandwich was fresh and yummy, especially knowing I can’t have bread or cheese too often.

I actually didn’t feel bad until I woke up in the middle of the night with the sweats. For being cleansed and having 3 beers and restaurant food, I didn’t do too bad, but won’t be doing that for again for a while!
