Starting a fast at midnight might seem silly but I've been known to be a night owl eater. Also, we fast at night anyway so I'm giving my self an easy start. After some consideration I did decide to have some apples the first few days. Maybe Sat and Sunday.
I was hoping to sleep in tomorrow morning but I might need to go run an important errand. I almost was going to have to be away from my house this evening. That was making me very uneasy. I didn't like that idea one bit. I felt the need to be home when I officially started the fast. But something got canceled thus freeing me. So, I am writing this from my house! I started my menses yesterday. I think this is a good thing. It probably will go its normal length of time and will be due again around the time I stop the fast. It has left me very tired. I started noticing it does this to me about 3 years ago. I feel completely wiped out when Aunty Rose visits me. I didn't get enough sleep the last three days either so the deprivation and exhaustion is extremely pronounced. I'm glad I'm even getting this blog up.
My last few weeks at work have been unforgivingly busy. With that in mind, I figured 'maybe I should do some kind of weaning into the fast'. An apple won't really be a trigger for me either so that's good.
Oh, I wanted to mention my weight again. Okay so yesterday I was at 189.4 lbs and today I am 191.4. I actually have not seen myself at 190 in YEARS; even more so a good reason to start this fast. By morning I'll probably already be back down to the 180's. An the mental & physical cleanse will begin. I'm so tired. Goodnight
I would love a fasting partner, just message me or comment.
