I’ve decided that I won't be backing out, I don’t think that I would be able to face myself or to move forward if I did, if I fail, then I fail, but my 4 day fast starts on the 9th, Monday and I will be starting my fast then to see if I can do it for all 4 days despite having some issues with the prep period and getting ready.
Maybe it’s not such a good idea to try to complete an extended water fast whilst your working long hours and stressed from looking after two small children, it kind of seems like I should have realized that in hindsight.
I wanted to briefly talk about a phenomena that I’ve experienced by fasting for around 40 hours (which is basically two nights and a day with change) - the phenomena is that most of the pain is mental and not physical, it’s very strange, the body experiences some discomfort and maybe a headache or two then after a while it starts to get into it, even feeling better.
Fasting is an ancient tradition for many and has been well-documented via the intermittent fasting circle for several years, now various people in the health and wellness industry have been studying and releasing information on longer fasts, extended fast which are anything over 3 days long, there are also bloggers and vloggers who have written about their experiences with these kinds of extended fasts and I've been wanting to try one for a while now.
When was the last time that you really made an effort to thank someone in your life who has gone out of their way to make things a little or a lot better for you? If it was last week then please ignore my preachy opening however if it was never or over a year ago then shame on you, and me because this was pretty much me for most of my life, until now.
