First Full Day of Bananas on my 7-Day Cleanse




So, today is the first day that I really get into the bananas--(Banana Island) I am aiming for up to 25 (10-10-5) but will not force the issue, if you know what I mean.  I ate my first 5 last night to break my 24-hour fast, and they were, shall we say, adequate?  Bananas are very filling, but amazingly quick to exit the stomach and provide a huge wollop of energy-- I washed all the windows, inside and out, on one side of my house after my 5-Banana supper, and did assorted other little jobs that involved cleaning.  I felt very virtuous along with energized!

So, on with the 7-Day Cleanse!

The fasting day (yesterday) went pretty well, in that there were only about three times when I felt a twinge of hunger, and that was mostly at noon when I facilitated a women's lunch at our church.  People there are pretty accepting of the fact that I do these whacky fasts from time to time.  The fragrance of Wyona's soup, though, was a little distracting.  And just talking about it this morning brings up some intrusive thoughts (mmm.. doughnuts)...

It's nice that my hubby is also doing the cleanse, although he has opted out of the mono-banana part of it and had a very tempting looking fruit salad while I wolfed down my bananas.  I am guessing that he might join me in one or more mono-meals over the course of the week.

Today we go to our afternoon Bible Study / Prayer group in town and generally go out for tea and maybe an early supper after the group.  Today I imagine we will either come home and do some gardening (it looks like it will be another gorgeous sunshine-y day) or maybe do something else to avoid our usual bad habits.  He does like to read the daily newspapers at the cafe, though, so we'll see how it goes (yes, he is a retired accountant, so reading 5 newspapers free is a great draw to that place).

Feeling great and about to start my 10-banana breakfast shortly!  Today I am going to watch some more videos-- but before I list them, could I get you to add me on Google Plus (G+) at the sidebar so that you can follow my day-to-day account of this cleanse?  (appreciate that and I will add you as well)  So here are the Youtube videos I plan to watch (for motivation and learning):
