I've never fasted before so I didn't really know what to expect. I expected to be hungry and tired. I was excited about the possibility of completing a fast. I was unsure if I would be able to finish it. I told myself that if I couldnt take it any more that I would allow myself to have juice only. That last time I ate was at around 8pm last night. My stomach was a little grumbly around breakfast this morning. It reminded me to pray. At work today I was a little hungry, but nothing major. I kept myself busy at work and got alot done. I was pretty focused on getting work done. I really didnt get an hunger pains. I took Ryder for a 4.5 mile walk after work before going to weigh in. I lost 4 pounds and won this week's weigh in...yay! During my walk, I felt a little tired and irritable and my stomach had a dull roar to it, but still no hunger pains. Tonight, I've been drinking alot of water and I'm still very surprised that I havent had any hunger pains. Still just a dull roar in my stomach, but it reminds me to pray every now and then. I haven't even drank any juice and it's almost time for bed.
The funny thing is that Ryder is not allowed to eat anything either because he's getting clipped tomorrow morning.
