A Slip in My Detoxification Cleanse

Okay, so yesterday my cleanse was going so well, and then I "decided" to have a single grilled Italian sausage at dinner last night. I immediately regretted that and could feel it churning around in my stomach, screwing up the alkaline-acid balance I'd worked on for just over two days.

Why Did I Do That?

Basically, I fooled myself into thinking told I was being deprived.
I was sitting with two family members and they were eating, and I wanted to connect, and I also wanted to taste the sausage. I remember the sensation... Not really a physical feeling, but an emotional one that I started imagining to be pain.

It Really Wasn't Pain

A short meditation would have reminded me of that--that it wasn't really true pain--but that what I actually wanted was to connect to my dinner-mates and the taste of sausage!
Again, some mindfulness or meditation would have solved the problem and let me continue on with my cleanse without slipping--BECAUSE I could still connect with my family AND stay on my cleanse, knowing that positive results would come from both.

Well, I concentrated on the guilt feelings afterward--in the sense of noticing them, but not interacting with them--and it came to me that my slip came and now it had gone.
It allowed me to just move forward in the same cleansing direction as I was going. I didn't "ruin" anything and didn't need to catastrophize, which would simply cause more emotional pain.

My Self-Ratings

Food pH Scale
Here are my subjective ratings for today:
pH Level: 6.6 (From oral pH strips available from InnerLightt... 6.75-7.00 is good for saliva)
Energy: 4 and still a little sick (0=No Energy, 10=Maximum Vibrant Energy [my comparison will be to when I used to run marathons])
Back Pain: 3--A chiropractic visit really helped with this, too (0=No pain, 10 =Most Pain--go to the ER)
Weight: -1.5 pounds--No change from yesterday (Ok, it must be the Italian sausage!)
