10 Day Group Fast Log from 246156's log

I am actually about 65 hours into an unlogged fast. The last one I wrote about went wonderful. I had a light day, then when I woke up the next day I felt ok to fast again, so here I am! I am hoping that helps my odds of completing the 10 day group fast instead of hurting it. 

Today I've had some black coffee, and a metric ton of water. I feel really good! 


This afternoon I start a new medication for my ADHD, so I'm a little nervous about that. My psychiatrist (who i found out is Islamic and fasts often himself for religious and spiritual reasons) advised to take it with a little coconut oil and a large glass of water, since it needs fat to work? He also advised me to take a magnesium and calcium supplement, even after fasting. I trust his advice, so I'm starting that today as well.


I took a before picture today. I can't wait to compare it on Oct 5th.

Day two! Here we go! 


I haven't experienced any weird symptoms or side effects, so I'm gonna keep on it. I woke up super thirsty this morning, which was strange because I drank almost 32 oz of water before bed. Mentally, I feel really clear headed. Very sharp. No brain fog at all.


I nearly had a moment of weakness last night while preparing dinner for the kids. I made them bacon and pancakes and it was so hard to resist. I portioned out the exact number of bacon strips for them, and made exactly two pancakes then got rid of the batter. It was close. I spent too much time gazing longingly at their plates while drinking lemon water, but I persevered. 


The thing that I'm enjoying the most is exercising self control. I've always been a compulsive and indulgent person. It's been really empowering to be able to hold strong. To face that bacon and not eat it, haha! Anyway, today should go pretty smoothly. I don't feel any hunger at all. I keep contemplating making some vegetable broth to have on hand. I have a ton of onion, fresh zucchini, squash and celery I don't want to go bad.

Yesterday went really well. The vegetable broth I made was deeply satisfying, and I didn't feel any temptation to snack on the veggies. They went right out to the chickens. I slept better last night than I have in a very, very long time- even with waking up with the baby. It was like MAGIC. I did have an incidence of leg cramps during the night, so I think I'll pick up some potassium today just in case.


Otherwise I've been keeping busy by reading about fasting. It's helping keeping me on track for sure.

Feeling great! Still holding strong. I'm about 130 hours into my fast. My husband was released from his job and was able to come home early, so now I'm debating if I should break fast on Saturday to go out for our anniversary. I'm not sure. Maybe we will go to a movie instead of dinner?

Nothing really new to update. I still feel well. Slept great again last night. My husband is supportive. Confused but supportive. We had a very active day today walking around a park and I felt really good the whole time. I've noticed that I have really increased my water intake since I've started as well.
