Well I made it until 4pm on day 4. I stopped for a few reasons, Stomach craps, and getting tired.
I was planing on ending day 6. There was a chance I would be on a long drive on Day 6. I did not want to be tired or trying to come off the fast if that was the case.
And no I did not go to McDonalds or any other fast food restaurant or not even a big steak. I am coming off the fast slow like it suggested.
Had some cramps in my side this morning. I also have some stomach cramps that feel like I need to go to the bathroom. I tired twice this morning and very little came out and still have the cramps. Also have gas and have been burping also this morning. This is weird since I have not eaten anything that should give me gas. In fact I have not eaten anything.
From what I read regular bowel movements will happen if not more the first few days of your fast. This has not happened to me so maybe I am constipated. You would think with drinking all the water I have been this would not be the case but who knows.
Sorry I am sure you really did not want to here about my body functions today.
Made it through Day 3. Did really crave food but I was good. Did the normal and layed around and watched 2 movies on TV.
Halfway through Day 3. I am finished with work for the day. Really wanted to eat today. Water is just not doing it. I really hope it is better tomorrow. Every thing I have read the first 3 days are the hardest. Well Day 1 & 2 were not bad but today is. Have some stomachache today kind of like hunger pains. My knees are really achy and a slight headache.
If tomorrow is like today I might give up and get something to eat at lunch. This is of course if I make it through the rest of the day.
Day 2 was not to bad. The hardest part was when I had to go to the store to buy some things. All the food looked and smelled good. I was standing in line to check out and there was some fried chicken near me and boy did it smell good. Sad part is I really do not like fried chicken.
I have been drinking a lot of water through out the day and evening. At work I walk around to different parts of the building. This place is big so I get in a little waking.
At night I pretty much just laid around and watched TV and played on the computer. My roommate made a cake the other day and there was one piece left. Boy was that tempting maybe just a little frosting. I was a good boy and kept my self control.
Well I made it all day. It was hard when I stopped for fuel to not buy any snacks. Fast food started to look really good as i was driving past them.
No real hunger pains just the urge to EAT. A small headache started about 8pm.
I have to go out of town for a week. I figure this is a good time to start my fast. This way if I get cranky my wife will not suffer.
I am not doing this to lose weight all though I do have plenty to do. I have just been reading about fasting and thought I would give it a try. I know I need to switch to a more healthy diet and I thought this would a good start.
My goal it to fast from Sunday – Friday. Then back to trying to eat healthier on Saturday.
My first day (today) I will be driving for about 10 hours to were I need to work for the week. I find when I drive I tend to eat real bad. I just snack the hole time even if I am not hungry. I think it just boredom or a bad habit.
I have an audio book on CD to help with the boredom. When I stop for fuel or restroom I plan on not buying any food Just another bottle of water.
