I started my water fast today, and I hope to complete 10 days in total. I have fasted in the past, but only for 3-5 days. I am doing this because I have had very serious health issues over this past year, and it seems the more I work with medical professionals - the more 'toxic' I become. It sucks when your body "feels" toxic. Anyway - I have read many, many books and articles and stories about the power of water fasting, and how it is helpful to detox. That is my primary goal - to get my body HEALED. I could also stand to lose a few pounds, but I suspect that this will be a natural byproduct of this endeavor.
So I have made it almost all the way through Day 1 - giving up coffee wasn't as hard as I thought it would be. I was so freaking cold at work though, I finally plugged in the teapot just to get my hands warm. I had a little bit of hunger around lunchtime, but nothing too serious - just more grumblings than anything else.
I am purposefully tucking myself away this weekend, lots of books - and bath salts to help me through these first few days. I know my Day 3 is always the roughest, hopefully, it won't be so bad this time around. Hopefully, also I will have phone calls from friends to keep my spirits going.
So that's today in a nutshell...
