Cleansing Days 1-4

Cleansing week is starting out just so so right now. I have definitely not been perfect in the food department, or starting enemas, exercising or most of what the cleanse entails. However, I have been good about having at least one quart of green smoothie each day. And really, I have mostly been good about food, but I did have some leftovers (pasta and such) that I didn't want to waste that I ate. I made a White Bean chili that turned out good, spicy, but really good. It fits perfectly, as it is gluten free, vegan (with vegan sour cream) and of course no coffee or sugar. I did clean the kitchen up today and dishes are finishing running in the dishwasher, so as soon as that's done I'll be able to make up the coffee for the enemas. I also bought a little bathroom heater from Target. The idea of laying half naked on the floor in the cold in the winter for 30+ minutes while doing enemas, not too fun. Plus, don't you just hate having a nice steamy shower, then stepping out into the blistering cold. So I thought I little heater would be perfect. Tomorrow I'll have my coffee solution and the heater so enemas, here we go!

My goals for the weekend include:
  • Starting the coffee enemas 1-2 times daily
  • Bouncing on the trampoline in 5 minute increments and working my way up. 
  • Work on getting 2 quarts of smoothie in 
  • Declutter my kitchen and living room tables and go through my bills
  • Wash sheets
  • Meditate. Actually, I had been doing this with the enemas. You are supposed to hold the coffee enema for 15 minutes, so I have been doing Gabby's Spirit Junkie meditations to keep me relaxed and make it easier. I will continue to do that. 
Otherwise, taking it one step at a time. Just have to work through some cravings, which amazing have more to do with pasta/pizza than chocolate. I really haven't had a lot of issues in that department. I've been drinking orange juice and that seems to take care of any possible sweet cravings.

Here is my Mom's White Bean Chili Recipe:


1 onion, 1 minced garlic, 1/2 chopped yellow bell pepper (I used a whole one), 3 cans great northern beans, 2 cups veggie broth (I used water b/c veggie broth makes me vomit), 2 cans chopped green chili's, 1/2 bag frozen corn, 2/3 cup rice, 1 cup sour cream (I used vegan), both regular and white bean chili seasonings

Saute onion, garlic and yellow pepper in oil. Add rest except sour cream. Note: If you are using regular rice, add it here, if you use minute rice, wait until about 15 minutes before chili is done. Simmer for about 1 1/2 hours, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and stir in sour cream. You may garnish with cilantro or cheese if you wish.

Off to make a green smoothie!

  1. Good idea about the heater, I wanted to do that but don't have an outlet in the bathroom. Don't forget about the chi machine it is so good for the circulation!
