|the first thing I'm allowed to eat 7 days from now|
When I got back I actually had to rush out the door to make an appointment in Rittenhouse Square, and I only ended up being 10 minutes late because it took me much longer than usual to walk the 7 blocks. I enjoyed the walk though, it really was a lovely morning. My perception has shifted a bit though; I feel like I am from another world, it's strange. Without food to ground me I feel weak and only half in the physical world. Walking back to the car and smelling the fried food was a little painful but I just let it pass and kept marching.
I made it to work and actually that was not so bad. I think having tasks to do that did not involve much physical exertion (sitting at my computer) was much better than being at home all day and struggling through chores. Boss #2 asked me if I was OK, I looked tired. I said, "yeah, I'm tired." I did not tell him about my fast.
|the second thing I'm going to eat|
I went to my chiropractor after work, and he adjusted me and did the painful soft tissue work on my neck back and hip. Then finally home.
I was reading in bed by 8pm tonight. I'm going to try and get into work at 8 tomorrow because I have to leave at 4 to get home and start "bowel prep" for the colonoscopy I'm having Wednesday morning. There should not be much drama there considering I will not have eaten in 4 days. I probably should be putting my body through that stress on a fast but it was a good excuse for a day off from work.

Your endevour has made me much more aware of what I'm eating - shoving in my mouth so casually and thoughtlessly - when so many go hungry or even starve - thanks for giving me some perspective....
I'm hoping after this exercise I will really slow down and savor my carefully chosen and prepared food instead of "gulping my food down like a Doberman" which is how one ex described my eating style.
