It's all good!

It's been awesome to be eating again, and my appetite has woken very rapidly to a healthy normal level. I started off with just juice for most part of the first post-day, then a tomato and some leaves of salad in the evening, then a bit of cucumber and a few steamed beans, all chewed very carefully and enjoyed greatly.
Now I've been able to move on to oven-cooked pumpkin filled with a bit of rice (seasoned with the saltless Herbamare veggie stock cube), tuna and steamed veggies, and I've started my days off with some healthy porridge with fresh blueberries (lucky it's the blueberry season!) and mashed banana in it. I've enjoyed apple, pineapple, and my healthy mints again. It's great!
This time I'm not really as concerned about how the fast's been going and what the results are as last time, I'm just happy it's all over and done with, and I'm able to re-set my eating habits again. I've resisted successfully all dairy and I intend to keep most of it out of my diet for quite a while (can't promise forever just yet...!), as well as lollies and meat. I've also seen quite a bit of trouble to search for raw recipes and vege recipes, I really intend to keep a level of energy in me, and little by little improve my wellbeing. Small steps will make progress easier.
Mum's finally broken her fast as well on day 11, good on her, she's done really well! As a reward we're going to the local swimming hall today to enjoy the pleasure of real Finnish saunas, and a lovely massaging jacuzzi.
My brain fog has lifted a bit from a couple of days ago, I'm less forgetful, and can concentrate better, but I'm still not my best. I've been on a good mood though, no anger bursts, the only minor setback being a bit of a blue mood last night, but I'm already working on quitting thinking late in the evening altogether so that should be fixed.
I'm happy about the feeling of getting an energy boost more quickly after eating, and I reckon my dandruff has bettered at least for the oily scabby part of it - now I just need to find out how to fix the excess dryness that's driving me mad. I do still get tired quite easily and climbing stairs is hard again after it getting easier a few days into the fast. I'm sure this will improve though.
More additions to this later, I hope. But I think this must be most of what I had to say for now.
