Living Life FAST w/ live updates

I have decided that today I will fast.  Last week I almost tried it – having missed a few meals on accident and was thinking I could make it… but that little voice told me to eat.  Actually it was more like…

“EAT FATTY… EAT!  ARE YOU FREAKIN’ KIDDING ME?!?!  IT HAS BEEN HOURS!!”

Something like that.

I was talking with my Mom and she was thinking of doing the same thing and this morning I am going to see how far I can make it.  I may get to mid-morning and breakdown because I am dying of hunger… but if not, I will try to make it past lunch.  Then dinner.  That is how fasting works for you non-participants.

I have never done this before, at least not that I can remember.  Maybe one time when I was poor or something and couldn’t afford food for my belly.  Wait… that never happened. 

So wish me luck.  This might be something I try once a week to get my endurance up.  I think it is good for me.  That is what I hear anyhow.

I am not trying this to lose weight… I am trying this to help trick my body into not really having to have food.  I am in one of those funks that my mind is telling me… eat food eat food eat food.  Even though I just ate.  I don’t know what is going on, so I am going to fix it.

So I made it through the morning without eating and lunch passed and finally I am feeling that twinge of hunger pains.  Nothing too crazy or anything, haven’t noticed any bad effects.  Worked on some things at the house at lunch time and so it kept my mind off of eating. I don’t see why I couldn’t do this all day, however it is still early in the day.  The hard part will be later tonight. 

I just hid my breakfast bar from myself.  I brought it incase I broke down or had some kind of fit and pee’d myself or something because of the lack of food.  It hasn’t happened yet, but instead of staring at it for the next 4 hours wasn’t in my best interest.

Haven’t died yet.  Am drinking craploads of water – no hunger pains at all at this point.  Haven’t felt faint or anything crazy.  Corey’s lunch did smell tasty, as did Gaby’s – but nothing I couldn’t dodge for the most part.

James @ 5:31PM

I’m too close to making it to 24 hours now without food that I can taste it.  That was a pun for you non-funnies.  Couple more hours and it will all be better.  Actually it isn’t that bad, no pains at this point.

    mental more than anything. I feel like I eat sometimes just because of my brain needing to fill that void.

    yeah it wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be. I made it 24 hours. Going into it, I was thinking I would just go the whole day, but then I thought.. well hell I may die. haha

    j/k

    It was a different experience.
