So the reason I’m so behind schedule is that after giving it some deep though, I didn’t want to just jump into this extended water fast without giving myself a good, healthy prep. Life has been pretty hectic too and I wanted to wait for a time where I would be able to rest as much as possible. For the past two weeks, I’ve been on a mainly raw food diet. And I love it! I still have a lot to learn and more recipes to try too but so far so good! I’ve got the support I need which is most important. I’ve already lost about 4 pounds and I’m excited to see how this experiment goes. From now until the day I return to a regular diet, I’ll be writing an update to keep you all aware of the changes that I see. I expect a lot of changes with my body. Some of them I expect to be difficult to go through but I know all difficulties will end in a positive result for my body. I guess my biggest fear is hunger. It’s inevitable, but I do not want to give in to it in the beginning. I know the first few days will be the hardest, and I’m going to do my best to stick to it.
So here’s the first update:
Weight: 130 lbs
Mood: i feel generally good today. No weird mood swings except for being a little grumpy around 6 pm (dinner time, of course).
Body: I felt a little sluggish today, but was able to keep up with my schedule with no problem, even did a little shopping! It felt really good to relax tonight though. I’m feeling pretty tired earlier than usual.
Still planning on doing this for at least a week. I’m hoping for two weeks, but I’m going to take it day by day and listen to my body.
Thanks for reading! I send lots of hugs 🙂
