1 more days on water.
My jeans are hanging off, amazes my how quickly the body shrinks when you allow it.
I am not doing this for weight loss although getting rid of the menopausal middle will be a bonus!
Feels good to be nearing the end of water and just realised that it was 5.30pm on tuesday when I last ate so I can have a juice tomorrow night if I need one.
Yesterday was easy and I did not feel hungry. Had plenty water in the morning but did not even feel the need to drink much later.
Was awake a bit through the night as I was sleeping in with my grandson and he was not that well. So was aware of him being there plus kept thinking about the sensations in my body, it feels really light.
Then just before 6am I was up with both kids so really tired now and a bit stoned feeling.
Want to lie and watch the Voice and just snooze on the sofa.
Was hungry this avo, made dinner for the kids coming back, first time I actually cooked since I started. But I know the body is healing and I have been watching loads of inspirational things on you tube, the enormous benefits of fasting and the miraculous healings that occur when you give the body the chance.
One thing that is not that nice to talk about but is interesting. I ate a ton of veggies and some grilled chicken on the tuesday night, then nothing after that since. My bowels did not move and I figured I must have used up the energy. Then last night (friday) I took some bicarbonate of soda which is good for healing the gut and getting rid of fungus, and my bowels moved. That meal had been in my body 3 days! I suppose it had nothing to push it through, but its quite a thought.
Another of our 4 man team cracked yesterday and had a roll and ham and cup of tea. This is not for the faint hearted and if you do not have a clean diet you can get some severe detox symptoms, so you need to go easy.
If you are interested in fasting do some research. Juicing is a good way to start, then you can get into the way of feeling that empty stomach and ignoring it anyway.
Choose a time when you can lie down and soothe your symptoms. But understand they pass and usually quickly as in a day or so. It depends what the body has to release. It is the perfect time to see what your addictions are.
I had a headache first couple of days but day 3 an 4 its been fine. Bit of sinus pressure due to a cold but nothing to stop me. But hunger is defo here today. Early to bed then I am on the last day wooohoooo. I am not actually thinking juicing is a fast after this!
80% of you daily energy is used to digest your food, so my body has been given all that energy for the healing process.
Our health truly is our wealth, if you need any help with your nutrition, health and happiness give me a call.
