Holy crap. I really don't know If I should be calling this 'Day 2' because around 10pm at work last night, I kinnnndddaaa sorta ordered & devoured a 6" sub! Which leads me to have a better understanding why people do travel to get away from there everyday lives for a fast. At 10pm I would normally have gone to sleep, but since I was working until midnight, the temptation was strong. Every second that ticked by was recognized as another second I didn't eat. Today, I hope I can do much better.
The key is water. I'll constantly be filling up my water bottle to keep hydrated. *Tip* If the water is room temperature, it gives your stomach the illusion that it's full.
It was another late start today since I went to bed fairly late. I was watching Naruto.. It was really intense. Any anime friends of mine would understand my pain. (haha, get the reference!?) ANYWAY, at least having such a late start there was no temptation for myself to get into the refrigerator. I woke up, meditated for 5 minutes to catch a breather & refocus my energy for the day, then left to work.
On an physical level, I feel fine at the moment. Probably because I did eat that sub though. My stomach has growled a bit, but no hunger headaches yet. Which is a good thing. By now, I thought I would've had mega caffeine withdraw! phew! *knocks on wood*. On a mental level, work is kinda stressful tonight. I do get off at midnight again, & it's only 6pm as I'm writing this. When I get off tonight, I'm going to take 20 minutes to meditate & relax my body, mind & soul from work & get ready for a good nights rest.
I work front desk at a hotel & we're almost sold out tonight. The guests have been very picky & frustrating, however I'm just trying to keep my mind as clear from negativity as I can. I am becoming very hangry (so hungry that you're angry). There really isn't much I can do at work spiritually. Which, again, is a bit frustrating. All I can do is try not to look to my left at all costs.. that's where the snack bar is. I purposefully left all my cash at home to resist any cravings I would have, unlike last night.
Tomorrow is Easter. Which makes myself fairly nervous because my grandparents want to take us out for dinner. They're thinking Chinese / Japanese.. even the text made me super hungry. I think I will just get one sushi roll & perhaps a bowl of Miso soup to suffice. I don't think my grandparents would understand this spiritual endeavor I am on, but they mean well. They're always so generous to take us out to eat or make us dinner. It's very nice of them, they're great people & I love them so much.
Anyway, I can't wait to see what tomorrow has in store. The good news is I am off work. & once I finish my meditation tonight, I will go right to sleep; that way I can wake up as early as possible. I checked the weather, 52 & party cloudy. Beautiful weather.. I am going to bird watch.
