The last food I ate was at 10:00 pm last night--a disgusting, cardboard tasting ice cream "product"--I tossed the remainder this morning and it is currently melting in the garbage. It is noon, so it has been 14 hours without a bite... which isn't all that abnormal as there are days where I skip breakfast (HORRORS!!).
2:00 pm: Back home and not quite as hungry as I was two hours ago...hmmm....I'm also not tired and considering a nap, which is often an issue mid-afternoon. My evolving plan is tp eat after 6:00 pm as that will be the 20-hour mark.
3:30 pm: I am very cold!! This makes complete sense as my body has had no fuel. I have 2 1/2 hours before I can eat and I'm playing a little mind game. I have 5 half-hour periods to go.
4:30 pm: I've been reading alot about IF today; Brad Pilon's "Eat Stop Eat" is very intriguing and I'm considering buying...on my budget (or lack of), that's pretty big.
5:30 pm: I feel a little light-headed but overall pretty good. I am no hungrier right now that I was yesterday at this time. I have not been that uncomforatble today. One thing that I have definitely changed is my television viewing--no cooking shows or shows about food! One half hour to go...
6:50 pm: Got busy working on a jigsaw puzzle and decided to push for one more hour--my dinner is in the oven and should be done in 10 minutes so it will be a 21-hour fast. I am very, very pleased with my day. My biggest surprise is that I truly was not that hungry...and I was relatively alert. My understanding is that this gets easier...Tomorrow I will eat normal and then fast again on Wednesday.
