transition days 1 & 2

ok, i stopped taking the pills. Its taken about a day and a half for all the really noticeable effects to disappear (gas, floating poo, etc..) Cleansing theory actually recommends a month for your first time and then one week every year after, but I don't think I have the constitution to do a month. Besides, now I can prepare for the next stage of my plan: No poop at all!

Which brings me to the main reason I did this. I am going to try a three day fast where all I will consume will be organic fruit juices and maybe some olive oil. The purpose of the bowel cleansing is to make sure that once I start fasting, there isn't any really really bad stuff built up in my system which will then get processed since there isn't going to be anything else to deal with (and may possibly cause some pain).

So come Monday, it will be a vacation for my innards!
