Yesterday, someone asked me what benefits I would like to receive from my fast. & again, the goal is not to lose weight, even though I probably will. Even so, once I finish the fast, I will naturally gain the weight back. So like I said, this is not for weight loss. What I would like to get out of my fast is a new start. All the toxic energy, food (GMO's, junk food) & even that marble I ate as a kid but I never saw come out will be released from my body. Vegetables & Fruits natural taste will explode, having no need for salts or other seasonings high in sodium that can effect blood pressure. I don't want to have to rely on artificial sugars, coffee (or other types of unnatural caffeine) when I can receive natural energy from the healthy foods I eat. I would also like to renew my energy as a whole. Through my meditation & yoga, I hope to find my own enlightened path that will help increase my happiness. From gaining lightheartedness, I will be able to inspire others to find there own paths, journeys, happiness, originality & love for the Earth.
I am a little more than halfway through my fast & my feelings today are all positive. I feel stronger. I found this natural burst of energy from my body, but I am not doing any strenuous activity to conserve it. I didn't have a chance to meditate this morning, so my thoughts are a bit 'jumbled', per-say, at the moment. However, when I get off work tonight I will be able to take the time to unwind.. that's exactly what I need.
3 More Days. I'm almost sad for my journey to end. At the same time I am looking forward to my first brekkie! I am thinking of going to this local organic acai bowl shop where I live called Real Raw Organics. Beautiful atmosphere, extremely nice people & such delicious bowls for only $8, plus 5 toppings of whatever you'd like. Frothyyy!! I can't wait.
In the mean time, I'll hold on & ride this fast out.
