View Full Version : I am awful at fasting but feel the need

I repeat, I am awful at fasting but feel the need! I have been 100% raw (most of the time ;) ) since 8/05 and commited to STAYING 100% raw for 2007 (so far so good). I don't drink alcohol, coffee, etc...I exercise daily (endurance runner) but for the past month or so have felt my old issues creeping back in (IBS, possible candida, bloated belly, weight gain, moodiness, despair, etc...) and think maybe a "fast" will help get me back on track. I do lead a busy lifestyle as a mom to 5, full time special education teacher, and 50-70 mile per week runner-which I will NOT cut back on to fast BTW...so, I am aiming on at least every Monday and seeing if that helps me "wake up and smell the cantaloupe"...I guess I am wondering if any one else is interested???? If so, join in...I plan on tomorrow and hope for the best!

Di...as you know I STRUGGLE with Fasting too and have been wanting to do this myself. I even thought to join misslinda's fasting thread but did not ever start. It was to much with the House Moving.
I would be in for a DAY of fasting with you. I could use it myself. As you know I have been Very High Raw for awhile now (which I Ok with for now) and need to get back off coffee. I was not sleeping well after my sister died and Al got the tinnitus..so I started coffee to get up and rolling in the AM, :mad: so back to square one with that ! I have done it before so I know if I try I can do it again. :rolleyes:
Tomorrow is a Fast day on my The Lord's Table Bible Study so it will work well.

OK, we can do this....I even "journaled" a plan last night....This is a perfect time to fast for me anyway as I am still out of work "recuperating" and need to rest anyway....I think fasting will help get me refocused and re-energized....Yes, my dear, you have been stressed right out of your gourd too whether you know it or not....the past few months have most likely taken a toll on you too....Time to fast and refocus. Why do you think fasting is so hard for US when so many others do it for WEEKS at a time? I would have to live in a house with no food to do that I think...or does it get easier? All I know is I NEED TO GET BACK ON TRACK....All of my "old issues" have creeped back up on me and I HAVE BEEN 100% raw.....I know it's time for me to fast as I have been questioning raw since my "issues" have returned....I am going to try to liquid fast this entire M-F and then do the liver flush on Saturday again, liquid fast again on Sunday and then start the RAW version of Phase 1 Maker's Diet next Monday to try to realign myself with my diet AND spirituality.....There, I have said it, now I must follow through....No solids for a week! Is that possible? I need to "clean out" my systems anyway.....It's so easy for me to say I will do it for the next several days when it's early in the a.m. on day 1.......BEAR WITH ME! Maybe if I drink kombucha daily or tea I will make it....Do you think that's ok? Kombucha works with detoxification anyway! Here goes everything....One good thing is I have a ton of paperwork for school and a lot of cleaning I could be doing...If I don't have to eat I will get caught up in those departments!
Happy fasting! :)

OK, I'm moving my progress on this fast over to MissLinda and Path's thread....cautiously optimistic that I can do this....I am freezing though....gonna climb under blankets RIGHT NOW with some tea!!!
