So I tried something new and fasted for 48 hours. I have only drank water for the last 2 days. Amazingly, I have had a very great experience.

 

I took it kinda easy the first day yet, I did walk a couple of miles and did attend a yoga class other then that I read and took it easy getting in

 

more tune with my body. My yoga class was one of the best ones I ever attended I felt tremendous amounts of joy. The whole fasting

 

experience was full of joy quite often. I was surprised that I have not felt to much hunger or cravings for food. There were some but I guess I put

 

myself into the mindset of seeing this through for the betterment of my health and not as some sort of sacrifice or as depriving myself of food. I did have

 

some dreams of food and of eating It seemed tougher in the dreamworld more so then in my waking world. Perhaps That is where I dealt with

 

some of the tougher times which then allowed me to enjoy the fast. I honestly did enjoy it so much I decided I was

 

going to go for a run today. I was not sure what this would do but I felt it was what I should do, so I did.

 

I ran 5 miles at what would be hour 42 of the water fast. Running on empty was surprisingly one of the most amazing joyful runs I have ever

 

had. I was smiling and loving it all the way. I went into the gym and thought lets have a go at some pull-ups. I have been working on those

 

since the winter and the maximum I have done at one time was 5 or maybe 6. Today I was able to do ten no problem.

 

I do not recommend for anyone to do what I do. I do recommend getting in touch with your intuition and listening to it and your body then you can

 

never go wrong no matter how outlandish it may seem. I do recommend to push the limits of yourself to question everything you think you know and

 

to try knew things in life. This has been my third fast ever the other two were for 24 hours. This by far has been the most enjoyable body and mind

 

learning experience of the three. Maybe next spring I will go for a week fast who knows I will have to see that then for now, I know I have made the

 

right decisions. I am now at hour 46 and still feel quite well and not overly hungry. Energy wise I still have much. Who would have thought?

 

Not me! You never know nothing new until you try something new. I do look forward to eating in 2 hours though!

 

Happy Easter to ALL !!!
