Day 3/10 feeling a little rough from FastingMama's log

SW 152.4

CW 148.8


Have some mental anguish right now so decided to use my support tools and log in here and post how I'm feeling.  It's only mental though but I really want to break my fast, but I don't want to because I want the results.  I just am feeling the stress hormones, the lack of sleep ~5 hours the last two nights, and making my kids their food and afterschool snacks.  I really want to "treat" myself for not eating for 3 days.  I have been following the advice to stay busy.  On a positive note I have NOT been feeling the abundance of GI issues like on my last fast, I really credit that to removing all cream from my coffee and flavored sparkling waters switched to unflavored.  

I pulled buckthorn today, cut sticks to fit into the yard waste bin, and primed some of my windows around my house all while watching/playing with my 2 year old.  

I have drank regular and unflavored sparkling water today, black coffee, and had one bath.  I think I might have another bath with epsom salts to help.  I am afraid to admit but I had 3 epsom salt baths my first fasting day.  I am at home all day so I can do this sort of thing and it helps with that "chilled to the bone" feeling.  

I have a history of breaking around the 3-4 day mark so I am heading into tough territory for me.  To take from my runner friend's lingo I want to reach a new PR for my extended fast.  

I heard Megan Ramos has a new fasting podcast so on the 2 keto dudes podcast so I might download and listen to that to pass another hour.  

Here's to more time under my fasting belt!

I'm sorry it's rough for you right now; it sounds like you have some excellent techniques for coping, and I'm glad you're able to take the time and relax/talk yourself down from time to time. If you're still feeling well physically, I know you have the determination to stick it out a few more days! After 3 days it'd be a pain in the neck if you had to start at 0 again.I'm sorry it's rough for you right now; it sounds like you have some excellent techniques for coping, and I'm glad you're able to take the time and relax/talk yourself down from time to time.
