First off, I thought my day 2 blog post was gone. I thought something was up when I was saving it, but I hoped it worked out and I thought it did not. That had me low key bummed and to help prevent that from happening, I wrote this part of the post instead. (Then DAYS after the fast ended I found the day 2 post and edited this paragraph to reflect that but the tenses are off so it might read funny. Sorry guys.) I also ate some granola. I guess I am an emotional eater. I don’t know. This entire fast feels like a fail. The 5 pieces of candy on Day 1, the 2 pieces of candy on Day 2, the few pieces of granola today. I attended a potluck party this evening and managed to refrain from eating a single solitary thing! Not one grape, blueberry, strawberry, noodle or anything!! So WHY did I succumb to granola when I got home? What is really going on?
As I write this update, I am 74 hours into the fast. I realize every time I put something in my mouth that isn’t water, I am delaying the benefits this fast has to offer. I watched a few views of breaking a fast and read a couple articles. The benefit of that is that I am reminded of the benefit of fasting. I am reignited with inspiration to be accountable to myself on this fast. The health benefits are really THE REASON I am doing this, but if I keep sneaking in little things, I don’t feel like I am getting all the benefits.
Ok so the most notable change of today has been gas. The symptom of gas had alleviated itself on day 2, but I must note here that 1-2 days before I began fasting I only had 1 meal each day so my tummy was preparing itself already. Now, this evening, that seems to be reversed. What a bummer. I also feel that the gas is temporary and with my recommitment to my success, I am convinced I will be able to have comfort again.
It’s almost midnight and I am sleepy. See you tomorrow friends.
