Progress Report Kelly
Intended Length of Fast: 14 days, but we’ll see if I can keep up the momentum and go and bit longer!
First Name: Kelly
Site User Name: Physick
City, State and Country: Milwaukee, WI USA
Proposed Fasting Method: Two days of coffee and teas, with ‘dinner’ being a stewed and strained vegetable broth, then primarily water and teas.
Past Fasting Experience: Five day water fasts in the past. Looking to keep the momentum and go for two solid weeks, at minimum.
Present Diet: Trying to eat healthy, exercise 3x a week, but I often succumb to the ease of delivery food.
Relevant Medical History: n/a (In fine health)
Present Medical Problems: n/a
State of Mind: Hungry!
Limitations: Well, I work 40 hours a week and my graduate night classes begin next Tuesday. I also have an interview for a second job next week (part time, 5 hours a week). I know it would be ‘easier’ to wait for my life to calm down, but frankly- I don’t see that happening. I wish to get into the habit of letting my body take a rest from digestion at least twice a year- and if you keep waiting for the ‘right’ time, I feel like it will never happen.
So it’s the end of day one- one of the hardest days for me! I know if I can get the momentum going and reach the morning of the fourth day, I’ll be well on my way. It has been really difficult to eat well this summer- I got married and the stress of planning and organizing just really got to me. I ate whatever was easiest, which unfortunately was takeout! I really need to break myself out of this terrible habit. When it comes to fixing dinners and lunches for my husband- I use the very best ingredients, but when it comes to my own health, I never hesitate to use the very worst! I hope to lose some of the additional weight and toxins that I’m sure have built up in my system in the past few months. Any support and advice would be greatly appreciated!
