Master Cleanse and Bikram's Yoga in one day? Ha! I am not a newb to hot yoga, but I am to cleansing.
If your squeamish about bodily functions of the cleansing nature, I suggest you stop reading now. SIF, I know you are.
So I have been wanting to do a cleanse/fast for awhile now. My reasoning is vain. I want to drop some weight fast. Yes, I know working out and eating healthy are they way to go, and that is what I have been doing, but summer is here and I want to kick start it a bit. Also to get all the crap out of my body. I tried the juice fast, but didn't last long. This master cleanse seems up my alley, so I am giving it a go.
I started it last night technically. If you want details, click here. I took my laxative tea before I went to bed. Prior to taking my tea I had gone to a hot yoga class. I saw that there was free yoga all weekend, so I figured I'd get a jump on my cleanse and sweat it out too. Ha! Hot yoga, is intense enough on its own. With a cleanse it is apparently not so good.
I got up drank my salt water flush (laxative) and went about getting ready for yoga. I hopped in my car and started driving to the studio which is a bout 15 min drive. I felt the need to go to the bathroom and figured I could wait until I got there.
Um... Yeah that wouldn't be the case. As a girl with IBS, I know.
I pulled into a gas station. Good Call!
After I finished up at the gas station, I got back in my car and headed to yoga. I got there and there was no parking! Being free, it was busy. I There was no street parking or parking lot parking.
I was starting to panic. I took a gander into the underground parking with a prayer and Sweet Jeebus I found a spot!
I immediately bolted into the studio, bypassed the receptionist straight to the change room to the bathroom only to to have a line up. Not good for a girl on Day 1 of her master cleanse!
Thankfully, the wait was short. I get in the bathroom and proceeded to monopolize it for 10 min or so. I figured I'd Git 'R Done and go sweat my ass off.
Sadly, that wasn't to be the case.
It was evident after washing my hands, that I would be monopolizing the other stall for a good 10 min or so and that sweating my ass off was not in the cards today.
I left, washed my hands, had a chat with the receptionist and she said she practices regularly and can't even practice while on the cleanse. I like how she put it, the first four days is getting the demons out of your body.
After our chat, I went to my car and immediately after pulling out of the parking lot and I needed a bathroom. Again! WTF?
I spied a gas station at the intersection kitty corner from me as I approached the intersextion. There was also one through the intersection is on my right, and then one on my right before the intersection. I was literally scanning the intersection left (ugh!) center (better) right (score!).
I pulled into the gas station, ran to the bathroom only to need key damn it! I rushed to the attendant, got the key and proceeded to spend the next 15 minutes in there. When I got out, the attendant asked me if I was okay. I just said I had the flu.
To any occupants of the bathrooms after me I apologize!
I still needed to get more lemons for my cleanse and was trying to plan the quickest route to my house where I could get lemons. I managed to do so and am happy to say I made it home without having to use any more facilities. For my fellow citizens sake, maybe I should just stay home.
But that may be a problem you see. I am suppose to have a date today. He said he would text me and so far he hasn't... I'll let you know how this goes.
