Day 7 in Costa Rica

Yesterday I woke up at 6 a.m. with a slight headache. I was extremely thirsty. I thought maybe I hadn’t been drinking enough water. I drank 32 oz. of water and refilled my water bottle and drank another 32 oz.

I got out the jump rope and was determined to beat my record. Which I did. I make it to 100 jumps in a row. Woo hoo! It took me a while to catch my breath after that. I then did some stretching  and worked on my shoulder exercises now that I was warmed up. My shoulder injury from May is almost completely healed and I have almost full movement back in it.

BREAKFAST: watermelon

At breakfast I was still not feeling good and I felt very cranky and irritable. I just wanted to get through the lessons and stop goofing around. Stephanie presented on magnesium and phosphorus and she did a great job. Other people had things they were assigned to look up and we got through about half of those. I was so irritated with the whole thing. I was relieved when breakfast was finally over.

It was another cloudy and cold rainy day, which was not helping my mood at all.

After breakfast I monitored my faster. He seems a lot more tired, but is still looking really good. We had to get our weekly before and after pictures done today. My faster did not seem happy about getting out of bed to do this, but he made it through. I just wanted to get my pictures done as well and take a nap. As soon as my picture was taken I went straight to bed. I was just about ready to fall asleep when the cleaning ladies came in to clean my room. I didn’t want to get up but I wanted to have my sheets changed, so I got up and went to the great room until lunch. I kept drinking tons of water. I couldn’t seem to be able to quench my thirst.

Right before lunch I had a quick talk with Doug about some of my symptoms. He seemed happy that my body was showing signs of cleansing and healing. Blah…consequences to my actions for eating so poorly in November and December….so it goes.

LUNCH: blended banana’s, banana’s and celery

At lunch Jerome did a presentation on the respiratory tract. The presentation was fantastic. Jerome is a very talented public speaker. I wasn’t feeling as irritated. Just sick and very tired.

I fell asleep briefly during the afternoon video, about a 15 minute snooze. I was hoping that I would start feeling better after a little rest, but I didn’t. I couldn’t believe I had felt so good yesterday and now feel so awful. I was already sick with the UTI at the beginning of the week, went through my horrible 30 hours of fasting and dealing with voices in my head. Now I was feeling sick again. Very very frustrating!!! arg.

I just want to enjoy myself in Costa Rica!!! Why did I have to eat such crap before I came here??

DINNER: I’m not sure what we had.

We sat down to dinner and I knew I was going to throw up. I went in the bathroom and threw up my breakfast and lunch, still in my stomach…fermented and undigested. Fermented watermelon is some of the worst tasting stuff ever! Why am I not digesting??

I was very pissed off with this whole ordeal. Doug sent me to bed and was cursing the whole way there. My head hurt and my stomach hurt and I couldn’t sleep. I read some of “The Pleasure Trap”. I just love that book. I am learning so much from it about health and mental stability.

After the dinner meeting, the other interns came to my room to check on me and tell me that I was loved. Wow, it is so incredible to be in such a loving environment. Growing up I always felt like such a burden when I was sick. It is nice to be sick and still feel loved 🙂

My roommate came in and she is dealing with congestion herself. Being in this environment and having such clean food is cleaning out a lot of us. It will all pass. I am glad I am here for a couple of months, so I can have time to clean out and still enjoy this beautiful place.

I went to sleep at around 9 a.m. Spent a while scratching the numerous bites all over my legs before I was able to calm down and go to sleep. My dreams were chaotic and angry.

Woke this morning at 5:30 a.m. Still have a headache and queasy stomach. Hopefully it will clear up soon.

    Hey Vic,
    So sorry to hear your not feeling well 🙁 I’m sending healing thoughts your way right this second 🙂 Must be detoxing from Nov – Dec? Hang in there, you’ll get through this. Awesome job by the way on the jump rope!!
    I just bought The Pleasure Trap and I’m looking forward to reading it.

    Have a wonderful day!!
