...and the mental debate continues

This morning facing the scale wasn't nearly as scary as it was yesterday! I was down 1 pound to 192.8. Considering my handful of pretzels I am fine with that!
This morning I had to get up super early to catch a flight. The airport is such a hard place to avoid temptation! Everywhere around me were wonderful smells from Starbucks and Wendy's and Cinnabon! EVERYWHERE! I stayed strong and had my bottle of water. I slept on the plane with was much needed.
Now it's about lunch and I'm having this internal debate that started last night. Part of me thinks that since I am doing this primarily for weight loss and not so much for detox (although I will take what I can get) that it's ok for me to have a small thing to eat every day, not to exceed 400-500 cals daily though (and the cals would include any juice that I drink). The other part of me knows that it's silly because it wouldn't allow my digestive system to rest and it'd be like I was in the first 3 days continuously. So this is my decision of the moment (subject to change)...I will take it day to day. If I absolutely feel the need to eat something then I will...however, if I eat something then I HAVE to exercise that day.
I'm kind of happy that I won't be able to weigh myself tomorrow (in a hotel). That way I'll have 3 complete days of this under my belt before I step on the scale again.
It's 7:15 pm and I have decided to do an every other day fast (EOD). I'd heard of this method working before and have decided to try it since I travel so much it should be easier. My plan is to limit my dairy intake and my calories. Since I work out so much and don't want to get out of the habit, this should be great. While I do this I'll be liver flushing and parasite, bowel cleansing. Once I lose the weight I'll do another MC when I'm interested in detoxing even more. I know that this will slow down my potential weight loss as compared to the fast, but it should still be more rapid than normal methods.
My mood has been a little crazy. Last night I was sooo lonely. I don't think that it was anything abnormal though, although what really is normal in the world of someone bipolar. I really don't want to mess with my meds, I need to talk to my pharmacist friend about potential issues.
I'm looking forward to a healthy dinner and tomorrow will be another fasting day!
