My Day one of this Fast. Very, very tired!

So my day one was a pretty bumpy ride. To be honest, I think when I woke up I was much more tired than usual; I think it would have been a pretty long day for me at work if I was starting the fast today or not.
So I get to work and my friend has the Madal Bal syrup, teabags, lemons... everything we need to get through 10 days each. I've read about people using regular pure maple syrup, but we decided to try the Madal Bal brand. We're also using pure maple syrup in case the Madal Bal runs out before the 10 days are up- and we're hoping to go 14 days, so we might need it. I thin kI'm going to alternate the syrups anyway.
Our mixture is something like this: 10 ozs spring water, 2 spoonfuls of syrup, 2 spoonfuls of lemon juice (from real lemons) and a dash of cayenne. I also drink water throughout the day, and it may or may not include a bit of lemon.
I drank some laxative tea the night before as well.
Anyway, here's how my first day went:
I was exceptionally tired right from the get go. Like I said, it would have probably been one of those days where I was glued to the coffee pot at work. The drink itself is pretty good, thankfully. I had a slight headache most of the day at work, but it didn't really bother me, and I assumed it was from the lack of caffeine. I missed my morning tea very much.
I never caught up to myself all day- I was so tired. I got hungry right around first break but overall I'd have to say I wasn't overly hungry. There were times yes, but nothing that I was suffering over. My friend and I face each other in our office so it makes it much easier to avoid temptation and have support.
The work day was long, and I totally crashed out when I got home. I made another drink and laid on the couch; I drank it as fast as I could because I knew I was going to fall asleep right away.
I slept on the couch from about 5:30 until 8pm. When I woke up I was physically weak- I was thinking, how could this be happening the first day?? I can't say I was hungry- just so weak. It was such an odd feeling; I don't think I've felt that before. Lifting my arms was a chore. I stayed up until about 10:30 then went to bed- I thought I was going to have trouble sleeping but I didn't; I'm the type that falls asleep within 5 or 10 minutes no problem. I did however, dream that I forgot I was on this fast and I ate something, LOL.
No BM today either. That worries me; I'm very regular. I start out the morning with a laxative tea but I'm not so sure that's all that effective for me. I may try sea salt and water in the morning to get things moving.
