I Did Not Eat a Bite

Well I did go without eating today for that amount of time, but I cannot truly call it fasting. Early on a coughing spell hit and so I felt I had to take a couple of strong cough drops just to quench it enough to sleep. The coughing continued today at work, so I took a few more to make working easier. I was discouraged because I knew this was not truly fasting, so I celebrated with a Pepsi to try and cheer me up, You've got to hand it to me though because I DID NOT EAT A BITE. In fact, by the time 23 hours and 19 minutes of it came along I was pretty hungry. I enjoy eating when I am very hungry so that is another benefit of eating only one meal a day.
I really shouldn't complain. The coughing has improved with my short fasts and improved eating (I'm talking about the time before I started this blog), but I can see that I do have a long way to go yet before my body is healed. My voice is better than it used to be as well. I have had a cough for around two and a half years and chronic laryngitis for around four years. I really look forward to the day that I can speak in my normal voice again. It used to be so bad that I couldn't even sing. At least I can now sing. I am so happy over that. I have actually had sore throat problems for many years.
You can see that I really do need to fast and eat right for healing. I am far from a perfect person. I lack self-disciple in this area. I am hoping the blog will help me gain some discipline. I think sometimes it has to be developed.
