Blueberries and yoghurt for breakfast, that can only mean one thing…I’ll be hungry in about three hours. This is not an issue as I am jumping off the fast train at lunch time. The idea was to do the full five days, I have flexi-time owing to me that I am going to take this afternoon. This will probably result in me playing the guitar all afternoon in between bouts of watching CSI. Sounds like bliss to me. Before that, I shall walk down in to Ormskirk at lunch time, go to Greenalgh’s and get myself a beef steak pie – of course this will then require me to walk the nine and a half miles home in order to burn the thing off, but hey, well worth it!
What have I learned? Well, for one, going without water is just stupid! Okay in Winter it’s manageable – just. But at all other times of the year, given that our brains are over 75% water – it’s just stupid. I’ve had at least one headache every day – which is why I’ve had water, once the headache has kicked in. Net gain, nothing! Another thing I’ve learned, going without food makes me (I am not going to speak for anyone else) incredibly moody and touchy, it annihilates creativity (my book writing has really taken a knock this weak!) and in short I have really not enjoyed myself whilst fasting this week. (You don’t say!)
Would I do it again? The short answer is never outside of Winter. I am more than happy to do this again in November to February, outside of that, forget it!
