Day 3

January 26, 2010

It’s day three and I’m feeling good in the hunger department…not hungry or having any desires for food. Maybe because as I was having an orange today… I COULDN’T TASTE IT!

Yes one more thing to add to the episodes of chronic sickness I’ve been having for these two weeks. Today’s new additions include….but not limited to… continued ear pluggage, stuffy nose, loss of taste, fatigue and all around yuckiness.

At about four pm today I’de had enough practicing for the day and hurried home to a hot shower and advil… Boy did that help! As soon as my head hit the pillow it felt like weights lifted and I rested peacefully for about three hours. The mucus in my throat is finally breaking up! Hallelujah! I think I’ll be back to normal by the end of this week with minor damage to my throat and poor little nose.

It makes me happy to see the numbers on the scale diminish over time. I know that my weight doesn’t define who I am inside but it really has a definite factor on how I think and present myself to others and myself. The scale is just one of the outward expressions of who I am inside. When this is all over with I will truly be the person I want to be inside and out. 100% Transformed! I can’t wait. But as they say beauty is in the process which means I have to go through this part to have an end result. In the end I will appreciate who I am instead of take for granted the things I have.

    Hello there can I join you on your water fast! 😀 I’m looking for a fasting buddy ): I hate to do this alone ):

  2. That is interesting that you are taking medication while fasting. I would be worried the medication would burn my stomach lining without a sufficient amount of food. Be careful.

    Wouldn’t having an orange a day confuse the body? It might go into starvation mode instead of fasting.

      I did a cleanse fast for two weeks where I drank fresh squoze oranges, lemons, maple syrup and cayenne pepper. This had more sugar and carb content than a few oranges in a day. The main reason why I’m eating the oranges is to continue to enhance my immune system until I’m better. Also oranges are a good cleansing agent to help break up things in the colon.
      I too am concerned about taking any meds during a fast and am limiting any intake to when it’s absolutely necessay.

      Thanks for the input.
