Mind

My mind continues to be clear and alert. However, I do not think I have reached the point in my fast where most people say they experience a “euphoric state” where all of their senses become heightened. According to the experience of others, it does not typically happen until about week 3 or 4. Who knows? I may not experience it. Needless to say, I did not have any brain fog this morning. It was very easy to get out of bed.

Body

These past two days upon waking, I felt no hunger. Since I started intermittent fasting a couple years ago, I’ve learned that one grows accustomed to the feeling of hunger. In the past, if I went a day without doing some form of intermittent fasting, I ended up missing the feeling of hunger. It might sound strange to some people, but having an empty stomach is a great feeling!

Wal Mart Fatigue

On Day 11, I went to Wal Mart. I was there for about an hour, and I started noticing that I was beginning to feel fatigued. After being there for about 40 minutes, my legs began to feel weaker.

I Did Not Want to Drink Water

By the time I got to the car after walking around the store, I knew my body was thirsty, but I had no desire to drink anything. I’ve been feeling like this for the past two days. Even a cup of tea or coffee are unappealing to me! However, I forced myself to drink a cup of water regardless of how I felt in order to avoid dehydration.

My Siblings Started Fasting Too!

From Wal Mart, I went to my house to pick up a book and say hello to my parents. When I walked through the door, my parents told me that my younger siblings, (aged 17 & 14), both did 24 hour fasts! I was so proud of them. It is the little things that encourage me to keep going, and today, my encouragement was my little brother and sister.

My First Cramp and Mustard

As soon as I got into the car to go back to my grandmother’s house, I got my FIRST cramp. This was my first cramp since I started this fast. I had to pause for about 15 seconds before pulling out of the driveway. This was the most eventful thing has happened these past couple of days! So…there ya go 🙂
