DAY ONE (Thurs 22 May 2014)
Day one rolled around for the start of my 10 day fast – super excited to start, i dove straight in and didn’t have breakfast! That’s the funny thing about a fast – all dressed up and know-where to go…or at least all fired up and nothing to do!
You’ll be pleased to note, my excitement didn’t last too long.
It seemed all was not well at Parcel Delivery-towers and key supplements didn’t arrive on time. When they eventually came i realised i should’ve taken some in the morning, then again at mid-day…so it’s about 5pm i haven’t eaten since yesterday, I’m staring down the barrel of 10 days without food but in my heart i know that #i’mdoingitwrong!
At this point, I also notice i should’ve done a two day lead-in – 48hrs of no dairy, no meat and no processed foods…doh, doh and doh!!
So ignoring the fact i was so under-prepared for such an exciting undertaking i considered my options… 1) ignore the fact I’d missed part of the protocol and carry on not eating,or 2) feel like a failure and quit …please don’t make me quit on day one!!
Actually there was a third option, let go of my ego (at least for a while) and do the damn protocol as it was meant to be done and forgot about the very notion of success and failure! They’re imaginary concepts anyway!
That’s what i would’ve advised any of my clients to do, but it’s hard to see wood for the trees when your self-directed…note to self, get a life coach. I also can’t judge the protocol if I’ve tinkered with it or modified it around me – so let’s do this properly!
OK so drama averted! Today gets scratched. Tomorrow no dairy, no meat and no processed foods and Saturday likewise. Then, come Sunday its on like Donkey KonG!!!!
