(90-Day Detox) A Constipation Conundrum and a Scavenger Hunt
Posted May 17 2009 11:16pm
Okay, while you’re reading this I’m probably waking up in the morning wondering if I’m going to be able to POOP!
I know, I know. Trust me to get all personal and graphic, but the truth is that for as long as I can remember I’ve had a terrible time with regular movements when I’m in new places with new people.
In our teleseminar with David Rainoshek he talked about what happens to sphincters when someone is exposed to certain things (like, loud noises, etc.).
A girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do, so chances are quite good that I will be packing my enema bag on the bottom of my suitcase, or at the very least a bowel booster herb blend.
Funny thought! This string of consciousness just made me recall living in Japan where we had pink heated toilet seats in fancy hotels. And some people had them in their homes, as well. It can get quite cold in Japan and with no central heating, a heated toilet seat is quite a luxury. Anyway, they have funny buttons on the panels of japanese toilet seats for all kinds of things. (water spray at different temperatures and pressures, etc.) One of the buttons is to make a “fake” flushing sound so that a grunting, gas-producing bowel movement won’t embarrass anyone.
But it’s so funny because everyone can tell the difference between a fake flushing sound and the real one, so it’s almost more embarrassing.
There’s a great kids book out there called, “Everybody Poops!” They should make an adult version.
While I’m in Toronto, I’m bringing my blender with me and I’ll keep food simple. I’ve been getting into the water and lemon thing a bit in the mornings, so I might keep that up.
Was grrrreat to have the support call with Dr. Ritamarie yesterday on the 6-Week Detox. I really love being able to have someone like her to learn from.
Aside from my little constipation conundrum, I’m quite sure I’ll be having a spiffy good time and while I would like to be able to write you from Toronto, I’m bringing my computer to catch up on some writing, but I won’t be able to get access to internet very easily. I wanted to keep my commitment to our 90-day detox and so I wrote this before leaving and it will pop up with wishes for a fantastic weekend!
I’m getting ready for a 7 hour car ride and one of the things that has helped me pass time in the past is playing scavenger hunts and games like “I Spy…” in the car. And so I decided that today, in the spirit of adventure, I challenge you to a scavenger hunt!
