I am dropping more weight than I expected... but on a positive note... means I was still quite toxic.. better out than in.
Was stapled to the bed this am.. WOW.. the fast is really eliminating at this point. Started to have "food dreams" last pm.. then fell into a deep restful sleep... ~ 10 hours.. got up this AM finally... skin brush shower.. then 30 min sun bath.. back to bed for a deep hour's rest.
It seems I experience a day or 2 of feeling bad... (sinus plugs up, am irratable, back hurts (esp left side) do not sleep really well.. THEN.. DEEP sleep.. and I wake feeling a huge fatigue - but after intense sleep I am a bit stronger.
Today is day 7.. I am hoping to end on the positive side.. but if not.. am sure the juice and watermelon I have will not disrupt the detoxification 2 badly.. I do want to come out of the ketonic state and recover my alkalinity. Hopefully the aggressive juicing I have planned will accomplish just that.
This afternoon I feel pretty good!! Went to the grocery store after some local honeydew melons... WOW.. they are the sweetest smelling melons I have ever selected!
I also noticed a mucus like substance in my urine... GOD knows what is coming out... ??
I have decided to break the fast today... 3 reasons:
1. The honeydews.. cannot wait !! 2. Fasting veterans advised me to break while feeling good - reduces recovery time 3. Allows and addition re-feeding day prior to returning to work 4. I'm happy and another day .. I'm outta dwarfs !
Am very pleased with this experience... I feel I have learned quite a bit. Breaking sooner than originally planned is not too disappointing.. I am elated with the process and very happy to end on a positive note !
