Most symptoms gone with the exception of fatigue and some hunger so it did get better....
Its getting easier to deal with the notion of fasting. The first 3 days were very difficult. You CRAVE the ROUTINE you've always know surrounding food and mealtimes. Psychologically it's been rough too. I've been thinking about a lot of people, my relationships with them, what they meant and how they have influenced my life and it's outcome to date. I think I've been too hard on myself. I'm not the one to blame for a lot of my personality flaws. Yes, I do accept responsibility for who I've become but not without noting that other people have treated me badly in the past. They have abused my trust and used me and how could I think that this would not impact me presently?? I digress....
It's Friday night and I haven't experienced the usual "It's Friday night, I'm depressed and lonely so I'm going to eat" episode which was HUGE for me! But I am super tired, I have little energy so maybe that's why.
Everything has been going well. I've thought about eating a bunch of times but I never give into the desire. I've been drinking a lot of good juices too. Fresh carrot juice is the bomb!! :) Who would have guessed. Another one of my favorites has been Guava juice. It's really sweet and needs to be diluted but it's really good. I think variety has helped a lot on this juice fast and it's important. I do miss my coffee though BIGTIME. I'd usually have it large with double creme!
Overall, I feel better. My mood and affect has increased. I have a greater sense of wellbeing, I'm feeling happy inside and am enjoying talking to people again. I have this warm feeling in my soul, it's really great. I haven't felt this optimistic in a while. I've started to think of changes that I will make when this fast is over. Like in the relationships I choose to be involved in and in my diet. I'm starting to think there's a lot of foods that have been staples in my diet that will have to go. I'm also starting to think this fasting has to become a regular practice. Something I'll do for 5 days once a month or something. I've been thinking a lot overall....
