Day 8 - So grateful to have made it this far

Who would have thought I'd be able to post for the 8th day of this fast. I thank God for the strength He has given me.

I don't usually blog this early but I can't sleep. I'm actually tired but my mind won't shut down. I got up to go to the bathroom and saw more definition to my face and body. It truly is amazing how quickly WF changes your body. Last night before going to bed I felt bothered by 2 things. I don't know what was going on with my GI but I felt a bit bloated. It seemed like trapped air as I'd hear sounds of bubble here and there and grumbling. Also my lower back was really bothering me to the point I wanted to take a pain pill. As of this morning I really don't seem to have any discomfort or pain in my back. I feel as though my neck range of motion has even improved. The aches and general malaise felt yesterday seem to be gone. A couple of things that stand out are some itching. My hands itching, chest, and abdomen mostly but some of my arms too. The other thing that seems to be difficult to ignore is my breath. Looooord have mercy. Can it get any worse?

I've lost 10lbs so far (137lbs 33% body fat) I think about what that feels like carrying a dumbell that heavy. How much relief my joints have gotten from losing that much. I love the feeling of lightness and ease of movement. My clothes feel so much more comfortable. I don't feel like I'm being squeezed into them. It's like I've gained back a wardrobe. I've ignored quite a big chunk of my closet for awhile now just because I don't like the feeling of clothes too snug. I plan on hitting the gym today. I missed 3 days already. It will be interesting to see the difference of lightness when brisk walking/running. I'm gonna see if I can get another hour of sleep. Off I go.

So I never got any more sleep. I did go see my chiro and then hit the gym for some sauna and brisk walking. I ran for 2 min.s at 5.0mph and gosh it took out a lot of me. My heart was beating so fast and I felt worn out. I decided to walk the rest of my time and actually slowed my pace down. 30 minutes total on the treadmill.
Even though I'm lighter I really didn't feel it. I think my weakness makes me feel even heavier.

Warning: girl stuff ahead. Move along to the next paragraph if it makes you uncomfortable. I went from spotting lightly yesterday to having a bit more today. Light enough still that I only have to use panty liners. My lower back is bothering me. UGHHH. I think it's probably period related. Here's the thing I don't really get my period regularly. It's April now and the last time I had one was in January.

I need to shlep myself to Costco so I can get some quick meals for the family. I want to avoid doing any major cooking this week as much as possible. I just feel like crawling back in bed right now. Okay I'll update later tonight.

YAAAY for Day 8!

So I went to Costco. I was seriously having a hard time pushing that cart and I'm pretty fit and strong. I felt out of breath. I don't even know how I managed to get a basket full of stuff. Thank God I wasn't really affected by the samples being handed out. Also, on my way to Costco I had this side pain/cramp. Just about around the bottom left rib. It bothered me enough that I had to try and adjust recline my seat while driving to get some relief. It went on for a couple of hours. Now the only thing different I did today was drink that Gerolsteiner High Mineral content water. I bought that yesterday and this was the first time I drank it. Maybe it's coincidental with the timing or what. I was trying to replenish minerals because I was getting some leg cramping after I hit the gym. Anyhoo, I just decided to do a coffee enema to see if that would help clear out whatever it is that's causing this. So far it seems to have helped. I'm crawling into bed now.

Okay the being in bed thing didn't last for very long. I was so tested by my 2 boys and felt emotionally drained dealing with their stubborness, resolving sibling conflicts/arguments, demands and on and on.

I also had this weird pain seems like intestinal both sides close to hip bones. Lots of stomach gurgling and rumbling. I don't know maybe I didn't drink enough water so I will try to drink more. Legs are also cramping. I totally get the whole boredom thing I've read from others posts. I actually watched 3 episodes of Barefoot Contessa (Ina Gartner). My 2 youngest kids love watching her. I find her cooking shows enjoyable, relaxing, soothing. Anyway, I had to shake myself and think of the reasons why I'm not ready to give in. I was Looking at other peoples blogs to help snap me out of this funk and found one that inspired me. So, I'm okay again. Glad to be wrapping up Day 8 and start 9!!!

Wanted to add I don't know what the heck is going on. Back is hurting and either intestinal or uterine cramping pain. Muscle aching. I decided to warm up water and take diatomaceous earth, Ionic mineral blend, and Himalayan sea salt. I'm not sure what's going on with all the GI activity. Maybe my body is trying to expel stuff. I'm actually tired but Hubby wants to go out so I will go along with it and hope to find my second wind somewhere to get through the night.

Good night all.

(Day 9 here and just read some of what I posted on this day. Where the heck are my brains. This fast is obviously affecting my cognitive functioning. Lord have mercy. I apologize if todays stuff sound crazy. I think it's fair warning to expect the with future posts during this fast)
