Today is day two of my water 💦 fast.

Last night my head was killing. I’m not going to lie I wanted to eat just so that I could relieve the pain but I didn’t. I meditated and then took a shower for about an hour. I also meditated in the shower, it definitely helped a great deal. I felt so at is and it probably because my focus was not on my pain but on my breath.

This morning I did feel a little nauseous but a drink of water helped me feel better. Justin really doesn’t like it when I feel bad. He tried to cater to my every need but he knows I am fasting, so the only thing he could do is bring me a class of water. 😊

I must say I had a lot of clarity last night. Visions of the future appeared to me. I have a lot to look forward to and is excited about it.

Oh I forgot, day two last time was horrible. I was weak barely wanted to get up out of bed. I couldn’t even do my workout until later that evening. Because out of no where at the end of the day I got this burst of energy and completed a full body workout. I felt great after I completed my workout. I was ready for the next day. I didn’t get a workout in this morning but I will this evening.

I got this!! Motivated to keep going

Happy Tuesday 😘

7 Day Water Fast, Day Two

Image

So a few weeks back I did a 7 Day Water Fast. It was an amazing feeling and process. I’ve decided to do it again and this time write about.

I tried to do the water fast again last week but I had to pause it due to not feeling well which I believe was due to a die off. When fasting you go through a die off period. A die off means all the toxins and parasites are leaving your body. During this time you get sick with flu like symptoms, break out, have headaches, and it can last for a few days up to a week. My symptoms only lasted for a few days but I decided to just enjoy the week and eat. I did want to give in and take medicine but I did not give in. I got better without taking medicine and allowing my body time to heal with natural foods and water.

Starting Day One Over Again… Not because I wanted to but because I had to get better first. I hope my journey inspire others to give this fast a shot. If not for 7 days but for 1-3 days here and there.

Day 1… So far so good. I feel great. I did eat a large meal this time compared to last time ( I didn’t have a large meal today, I’m taking about yesterday). I don’t have a headache like last time and I’m not as hungry. I am focused again. It seems that eating for me takes away some of my clarity and makes me tired especially heavy foods. I know, I know, you’re probably thinking just eat lighter. It’s truly hard to eat light when you love food so much. I just want to eat and try everything. However, I’ve decided to join the rest of my close family and become either vegetarian or pescatarian.

Not eating meat for an entire week made me feel great. Not eating food period made me feel great. I still had energy but Day one last time was so horrible. I wanted to give up and give in to food. But I would not allow myself to do it. This was about me and getting my body back on track internally. Getting healthy both inside and out, I believe is crucial to any new journey to getting healthy.

I’m not sure what caused me to do a seven day water fast. I do know that when I mastered the 1 and 2 day fast, I wanted to feel that same feeling but longer. So I then decided to do a 7 Day Water Fast, I made the decision the night before, kept it to myself and didn’t tell anyone until the day I started it or when they asked me if I was eating anything.

Clarity, Clarity, Clarity, I gained so much clarity. Doing the water fast, I felt like I had better control over my thoughts and feelings. I was calmer and my perspective on things changed. It really makes you think, what else can the body do without food.

Well I must go now. Stay tune for Day Two.

Life is only hard as you make it out to be. Yes, we go through many things and wonder 🤔 why me? Why not you? What makes you exempt for struggle, pain, and lessons?

Isn’t our struggles what we learn most from. It’s how we get endurance. In therapy, I️ teach my clients to take the hardest struggle they’ve endured and utilize that strength they acquired to get through that struggle and apply to all areas or situations in their life they find difficult. It’s a technique I️ learned in grad school. It’s a technique I’ve been doing for years well before I️ knew it was a technique.

But any who.

Don’t let life be harder than what you may feel it has to be. In the little victories see your strength and continue to build on it.

Why is it so easy to love others more and before we truly love ourselves? I wonder if it’s because we see qualities in others that we don’t embody just yet ourselves. Or is it simply just easier to love others. Is it because it’s what we’re taught to do first?

Hmmm. I wonder.

Do you guys have an idea of why it’s easier?

I personally think we first develop a connection with others before truly learn how to connect with ourselves. Since our youth We’re told what and who we are by others especially our family.

So it makes you think, is that why we have a hard time defining or finding our place in life and loving who we are because we don’t truly fit the mode of what others projected onto us over the years. Is this the reason why it’s hard to love ourselves first.

Hmmm,

I️ May have to ponder this more.

I was kinda swamped yesterday. So I forget to post my Post-it Note Quotes!

So here is two for today.

I hope these two quotes encourage someone today. I know it encourages me daily to stay focused and on my path.

Remember if you believe you can achieve it will happen. You can have it all as long as it doesn’t harm others, take away from others, or change you into a negative person.
