Day three, hour 65 and doing fine :) Woke up a bit congested again, but it definitely has a different quality to it, less of a I-am-toxic and more of toxins-are-leaving-me sensation. Plus I'm down 4.5 pounds, which is cool.
The last time I tried a fast I was on the mountain and it was pretty much like the last couple of times I'd attempted it: seriously freaking torturous. It was as if I were drowning in my own bad energy, a sensation of toxicity so intense that I could barely get off the couch, much less get things done. Each fast before this had me bailing by day two.
This time is different. Maybe it's the modifications, the rice protein shake and the soup last night. Or maybe my mind set is so much more focused on action, and continuing to be alert and aware to the balance between driving myself like a two dollar mule toward some end result and compassion for how my body-mind-spirit is a valiant warrior in the face of all it is up against in the wacky world it lives in.
But today is the real test of trueness: a day of classes and work until 10 pm tonight. And I'm off . . . weeeeeeeeeee :)
