37 hours….so far….

Well I’ve made it 37 hours on my fast and I think I can go a while longer so will keep working at it. Yesterday I just stayed extra busy and that seemed to help. I did chew 6 pieces of gum and had 1/2 cup of juice with my fiber otherwise just water, lots and lots of water. Oh before bed I had my sleepy time tea. Today I’m hoping will be the same but I also got my darn monthly enemy friend so we’ll see.

I’ve been working with my Wii for 3 days in a row. It’s not really work, it’s fun. I’ve burned anywhere from 110-120 calories. I also got the Nike+ to work perfectly and last night we walked 4 miles, at just a tad under 4mph and burned 605 calories. Once I find a set of games/workouts on the Wii that burn more calories I’ll work on them but for now just trying them all out. Hey to stand on that balance board and do all the things they want you to do, well you have to be coordinated. For me that’s funny. I am not full of rhyme, coordination is not my name and balance is not my game …but…I’m learning. This chubby lady is working hard to get some good core muscles, to be able to stand tall, sit straight, balance and be coordinated. As for rhyme, well that just might not happen. When I was little to medium I took piano lessons, and had one of those clickers that helped keep pace with the song (it has a name but right now I can’t remember it) and you know, no matter what they tried to teach me, I could play the music but couldn’t keep time. So I just don’t know if that will happen but with practice I’ll at least learn the moves.

So it’s onward and upwards to the day. I have my 5 wee ones and right now they are kindly playing with the Lego’s except for Justin who has the mini shop vacuum out making noise, sucking up rocks he said.

So I wish you all a great and blessed day. Take care my friends.

I've never done any research on the fasting. I read your last 2 posts and it's an interesting theory. I hope it works for you. Meanwhile, you must feel weak I would imagine? Keep drinking that water though!!

Hey, I just noticed that you are in MN. Where are you located?

Can't wait to find out how all this works for you - just be careful! I'd think a person would feel weak too...and a little cranky? hehe. I just don't know - I think I'll try a "raw food fast" myself - just raw veggies for a few days...wanna do that one with me? It would be HARD for me to give up salt though.
