I am going where many have been before. I have chosen to enter the world of fasting. I have read so many benefits of fasting;
Rapid weight loss, body cleansing/detixing, self disciplin, self discovery ...the list is endless.
I have decided to venture into it myself and see what I personally can gain from fasting.
I have decided that it is best if I do not set myself a longterm goal - because I know if I fail I will forever feel the guilt and hear a voice telling myself how useless I am.
So instead, I am taking one day at a time, and each time I reach significant days, I will mentally reward my efforts.
I weighed myself this morning and I was 13 stones and 6lbs. I hope this number decreases big time.
today, not eating has been a breeze. i am determined and feel prepared so I didn't expect to struggle too much today.
I love food, used to eat healthily and exercise regularly but the lazier I got with exercise the lazier I got with food. chocolate tastes great, balanced meals take preparation and time, and i chose the easy options. Before I knew it I hated what I saw in the mirror - not all thetime - but most of the time. It is easy to dress up and look cute, disguise the ugly beneath, but you have to strip the lies off at somepoint. i want to be happy with my body, and i think fasting will be a great kick start to any health regime. So here we go, Day 1....almost through.
This blog is a way for me to log my feelings and experiences during my weight loss journey and hopefully gain support, even form jst 1 person along the way???
On my fast I have decided to do a balance of a water fast, the master cleanse and a juice fast. I would like to say pure water but I am a realist - I WILL get bored with JUST water. So I have said, to have water as much as I can, the lemonade drink from the MC I am to have at least once a day with a lot of pepper and not too heavy handed with the maple syrup, to help my body cleanse, and juice is permitted when I feel weak (this is inevitabel if you are not to eat for days on end) and/or feel my body needs it.
I am allowed herbal teas (all natural and no sweetners/honey etc..)if I like.
What will day 2 have to offer?
See you tomorrow.
PS It is a Wednesday, should I have started today? Should I have wiated until Monday? For balance> Or am I being silly? I just wanted to start as soon as possible so wish me luck!
