I’ve had a few pangs to go eat something, but not a huge contest of will. Felt a little weaker today. Got my walk in with the dog and spent some time out in the garden picking elderberries for syrup (after the fast). Also picked kale, cabbage, brussel sprouts, tomatoes, bell & banana peppers and I did find three very small beets. Wanted some blueberries, but this is not a stellar year for our harvest. Pears won’t be ripe for quite some time – so its store bought fruit for the rest of the fast.
I’m down 4.6 pounds from when I started and that is making me feel GREAT!
But I’m a little bummed, they’re throwing my nephew a surprise 30th birthday party today and I wasn’t able to make it. His wife is expecting their first child in September and I would love to see her bump, meet my niece’s new daughter and see my best friend. I’m changing my life so I don’t ever have to miss out on the fun times anymore.
