For those of you who have ever been a teenager or been unfortunate enough to have endured a teen “love story” movie, you will have inevitably witnessed a teen guy or girl “dancing it out” on their bed to some 80’s or 90’s hit track.
It was 5am, I was standing on the deck of the cruise liner ‘The Legend of the Seas’ in the East China Sea, watching the sun come up and smelling the warm salty air which touched my face.
This was one of the only times I had to myself to recharge while on the tour of China, Japan and Korea.
The rest of my time I was giving all of myself to instruct, inspire and heal the many wonderful participants on the tour.
So there I laid, projectile vomiting all over myself, and was scared but happy about it.
Perhaps I shall explain this a little further.
Let’s take a little journey back a couple of decades or so…
Well, my intrepid readers. I am one day from the end of this ….. diet.
The odd thing is, now it’s easy. The moods have changed, the hunger has died off and my energy levels are consistent.
It’s only now at the late stages of The Hercules Diet that I am aware of some of the less obvious but more useful benefits.
Number one being the increased ability to sense what nutrients I need.
It’s interesting that foods that I would normally deem as healthy and good for me, when I think about them now, cause my stomach to turn.
My hunger cravings have finally died down, the only thing is I’m a little bored of my choices for food (ie: none).
I did get reminded I was meant to be eating organic apples of green, yellow and red as well as the Pulse, to gain natural sugars for energy. Good to remember at day seven.
Today I find myself sitting on a grassy hill. Overlooking a beautiful view with not a house in sight.
The sun is shining, the birds are singing and I’m surrounded my mooing cows. I thought by now I’d be ready to take a bite out of one of them. But not quite yet.
I have never been so emotional about food before. In fact, at times I was getting downright cranky.
I had quite a full on training session today.
