Morning of Day 5
I had a pretty funny food dream last night that didn't leave me reaching for the phantom dream food. It looked like a burrito slathered on the outside with spagetti sauce with ground beef sticking to it..... and falling off every time I tried to take a bite. I woke up laughing. That is proof that this is working for me. I never wake up smiling!! Usually, I wake up with the resounding thought "Noooo" as I zombie stomp to the kitchen for my first cup of coffee. I'm loving this! I have no idea if I've lost anything yet but I feel like I have and that's good enough for me right now.
Today I've brought to work with me carrot, cucumber, pineapple and melon juice. My goal now is to drink 2 full glasses of water before I dig into that.
Aside from the fact that I started my period yesterday and had some monster cramps, I felt pretty relaxed as the day progressed. Granted, I wanted nothing more than to lay in my bed and watch crappy movies but that's my usual M.O. on the first day of my period. I don't think fasting had anything to do with that.
I'm super excited for next week. I'm getting a new tattoo from an artist in Seattle I met at this years ZomBcon! While in the city I'll be stopping by Chaco Canyon, a place I heard about here from Vegansara. She seemed to think the raw enchilada plate was yummy..... I can't wait to try it! I'll break my fast for that and then go right back!
I feel so enlightened...... or am I just punch drunk?!
