Last night I slept about 1am. I seemed to still have pretty decent energy. I woke up a few times to go to the bathroom. One thing that somewhat bothered me were the sore quads and calves. I finally decided to spray my legs with magnesium oil and went to bed. I woke up this morning at 8 with no leg soreness anymore. I felt weak and tired so I went back to bed. Woke up 9ish and still felt crappy. Went back to bed for the last time and got up at 10:40. It was the most fatigue I felt this entire fast. Exhausted would be more appropriate. I also felt my back bothering me. I could almost compare it to having the flu. Achey. Breathing felt labored from fatigue. I decided to have an epsom salt soak to see if that would help. The bath seemed to help me feel better emotionally and gave me a bit of a lift. However, the fatigue continued. I did a coffee enema, replenished minerals with diatomaceous earth and Fulvic/Humic ionic blend of minerals. I was so tired I seriously struggled to keep my arms up to blow dry my hair.

Ketone levels from urinalysis strip test continue to register at max this morning. Okay here comes the female stuff so if you don't wanna hear about it then skip this paragraph. I wasn't expecting to have a period at all during fast and usually when on the master cleanse/fasting I'm more likely to skip a period. However, I'm spotting lightly so wondering how fasting is affecting hormone levels.

My sense of smell has gotten much more sensitive and wafts of barbecue and other yummy scents are everywhere. Had a couple of moments of just wanting to taste something in my mouth. Just a bite darn it. Seeing everyone feasting and enjoying themselves adds to this challenge. As uncomfortable as it is to be so conflicted with all these temptations, I refuse to end my fast. I know I have a few good days left in me. At least focusing on simply getting through this day is enough for me. GOD IS MY STRENGTH!
