day 16

Well think its day 16.
Anyway things are going ok. I checked blood pressure a few times and last time it was low normal range. The fast has been proceeding fine just very bored. Boredom is my biggest problem past two weeks or so.
Weight is 225 and has been there for last couple of days.
I am trying to mostly stay to water. I did treadmill for about three days in a row but took today off. Didn't do any exercise other than the treadmill. Energy levels are pretty good. Still take some green tea capsules most days.
Also I am not a purist have not been juicing from machine has been drinking 100% juice store drinks .Except I have some clamato juice basically a virgin caesar here and there mostly to put some salt into my system. I know that my blood pressure can get super low from past fasts if dont take in some extra salt.
And if you drink too much water you tend to flush it out of you even faster .At least thats what seems to happen to me. Then get very faint, come close to passing out and then usually stop the fast.

I also think good idea to take in some drinks with potassium or maybe some potassium supplements. So far haven't taken any. A sign of low potassium is cramping in legs and some say you can get them in heart muscle which would be very bad.
Also have to confess had a few Starbucks frappacinos to sort of reward myself for sticking to no solid foods. I have found that basically only solid food brings back my hunger.
And have had no hunger at all . But do have pretty powerful pyschological cravings for food. As said fasting is very boring and past couple weeks just gets worse and worse.
But trying to stay the course.
I want to get down a long way this time.
So keep on keeping on.
