Something New and Diff

I am twelve hours into a 4-7 day fasting cleanse. This is the first time in my entire life I have fasted, except for about 1 1/2 days on a wilderness trip, oh, 25 years ago.

I have food issues. Mostly surrounding the problem of eating. I like this fasting thing cause I don’t have to eat. I guess it’s not a long-term solution, though.

Anyway, so far, it’s been pretty good. I did force Val to cook dinner though. I’m not all that tempted yet, but I think it’s a little much to expect me to cook too! Especially cause I am such a good cook!

For the first time in my life tonight, I will be experiencing a colonic. Sorry if that is TMI.

The plan for this is to do this fasting cleanse and then go directly into a 21-day non-fasting cleanse. My fine naturopath sister is administering these and is a great support.

My other fine sister recommended that I build in some nice things for myself during this time. Duh, that didn’t really even occur to me. Sisters are so nice to have.

This time tomorrow, I expect to feel significantly cleaner inside.

I’ll keep you posted.
