New daily journal:
I’ve made so many attempts to finish my water fasting goal, but I’m not giving up until I finally prove to myself that I’m able to do so much more than I think.
My goal has been to water fast for 30 days since a year back, and the furthest I’ve gone is 10 days.
Right now I’m in day 7 of a new water fast. I started my fast on the day I moved into my new apartment, very far away from where I lived before, and it felt like a good opportunity to have a new start, with a successful fast.
The difference with this fast and the ones I’ve done before is that I’m staying in this place alone, and I have no food at all in my environment. It makes it less of a choice to break the fast, since it would take more energy to walk to the store when I don’t have a car here.
And it might sound weird to fast all through the holidays, but I’m gonna spend my Christmas alone anyways this year so it won’t make a difference for me if I don’t eat. Hopefully I will have more Christmas celebrations in my life to add up for it.
I’ve felt alright for these 7 days, although I have never had this much of a trouble getting sleep. I have never slept great when fasting but I usually got a couple of hours at least. Now I’m happy if I get 2 hours of sleep…
I’m excited to start journaling now again when my head is more clear after all the unpacking!
