Now onto the good stuff…
My Fast is Flying by Faster Than I Expected

Ha. Witchy pun intended. I’m actually quite surprised how little food I’ve been “tempted” to eat.
I know day 2 or 3 tend to be the toughest, according to my research and I’m just happy that they went by without much ado.
Yes there was definitely a moment when I almost ate a raisin off the floor. That 10 second rule must really be hardwired!
I continued to make some great lunches and salads for my boyfriend, and I wasn’t really tempted by any of the food. It was as if the food was like a toy. It was there for me to make colorful arrangements with, but not really for me to eat.
I noticed that my sense of smell also got sharper. Maybe that’s why Indian ladies who cook meals while they fast are so good at figuring out what spices to use.
Grocery Shopping while Fasting
I was running out of maple syrup, and the rest of the refrigerator was looking a little bare so I decided to go grocery shopping.
I was armed with my grocery shopping list, and I had a mission. But first, I had to stop by the ATM for some cash. That’s when I walked into a little corner store that stocks all kinds of junk food.
Seeing the junk food made me take a deep breath, and I actually started walking faster toward the ATM. After I got my money I was out of there faster than a black cat on Friday the 13th at 11:59pm.
My trip to the local farmer’s market was quite easy. I did stand in front of the leafy green vegetable section for a tad too long, but I hear looking at the color green is relaxing.
The next time you’re stressed out look at some leafy trees, and if that’s not possible then take out some lettuce or greens from your fridge. Instant relaxation. Ahhh.
See you tomorrow…
I plan on writing about some salt water flush concepts and experiences tomorrow. Hopefully you’re enjoying reading about my experience fasting for the first time. I’m not doing this for nuthin’ ya know. ;)
