Fall Fast – Day 10

Saturday, November 21st, 2009

Day 10 is here.  Weight is holding at 210lbs for now. We are half-way to our goal of 20 days. I had a fresh blended vegetable drink yesterday (cucumber, tomatoe,  lettuce). In addition, I had prune juice and black currant nectar juice.I also started sipping dandelion tea for the liver I think and made milkweed tea from straight milkweed. Milkweed is known to rebuild the liver over a course of 4 – 6 weeks. A sluggish liver may contribute to my difficulties with weight regulation.

I made another gallon of the lemonade concoction today.

During the fast, I have found it helpful to clean house literally and within my soul as I do this fast. Letting go of old things. I’ve also been taking dead sea salt baths about every two days. My skin feels tingly for about an hour after getting out of a salt-bath.

Cleaned out some more rooms with the kids help today. Next step is to begin painting the rooms.

Had some interesting dreams last night that I am still working on interpreting.

Fall Fast – Day 9

Friday, November 20th, 2009

Pants are fitting loose now. I upped the dosage on my senna tea. It seems I have developed a bit of a conditioned response to the salt water flush. I get a heachache even thinking about it.

I found myself fighting off urges for “meat” for the first time in over 1.5 years. This was surprising.

I had a little cream of mushroom soup last night. I had a little bit of coconut milk based ice cream yesterday as well.  Took the kids to McDonalds and got them “veggie” burgers. I had to fight of the urge to get myself a “veggie” burger. They loved theirs. Told me how awesome it was. I had McDonald’s add extra cheese.

Weight is 210lbs give or take .5lbs.  That means probably about .5lb loss per day given that the first 5lbs was just emptying out the digestive tract. 5lbs of stuff being carried around in my digestive tract. Wow.  I guess I may make it 208-207lbs by Sunday at present rate.

Feeling mentally sharp still.

Fall Fast – Day 8

Thursday, November 19th, 2009

8 Days a week, I’ll lo oh oh uv you – The Beatles !?!?

Got some recommendations from a friend on some better stuff for eleminating toxins. It was suggested to get Swiss Kriss brand laxative and doubling the dosage. I’ve been using Senna tea up to this point.

I had some hunger temptations yesterday. Took the kids to McDonald’s and man I was so close to ordering an ice cream or french fries.

I have a slight head ache today.

Had some interesting dreams last night which have been recorded offline.

Fall Fast – Day 7

Wednesday, November 18th, 2009

Weight is dropping again. Scaled ranged from 210 – 213lbs this morning.

I’m engaging more and more on the lemonade solution as part of the master cleanse.  Feeling good still.

Salt water flush is working much better after I increased the amount of salt to heaping teaspoons instead of flat teaspoons.

Still drinking a little bit of pear, vegetable, and pomengrante juice.

13 more days? I may slack off for thanksgiving. Dang – I hate getting this started and then perhaps having to slack off.  If I do decide to engage for thanksgiving it means I will need to resume eating around the 23rd or 24th which still gives me another 5-6 days, which could make for about 13 total. I have heard that in spirit they say it is good for women to fast for 5-7 days and men to fast for 7-10 days depending.

Fall Fast – Day 6

Tuesday, November 17th, 2009

Finished my last dance class of the month last night. That will wrap up Swing Level I and Waltz Level II. I may have found me another dance partner as well. This will be three dance partners! I find this is a helpful way to work on my feminine side since I don’t have a wife willing to engage in mutual self-development at the moment. Perhaps that will change one day 🙂

I didn’t get around to doing my morning walk today so I guess I will do that at lunch. Weight is maintaining at 213-214lbs. I am slightly upset about this. I figured 6 days no food and I would be back down to 205 already. Well, the last time it took me 14 days to lose close to 20lbs.

I started on the master cleanse yesterday. Sort of eased into it. At present rate I have 14 more days to go to reach the goal of 20 days. Had pineapple juice yesterday for dinner. Quite yummy it was.

I’ve added an “organic bowel cleanse” to the mix. This includes acacia, psyllum, and other assorted herbs and seeds known for cleansing one’s foundational areas. I may add horseradish and clay water to the mix tomorrow.

One other cool thing I found. They are called Cayenne pills. Instead of downing this lemonade with cayenne in it, which is really hot – I just swallow a cayenne pill. Makes the master cleanse not quite as dreadful 🙂

I also started chewing gum through out the day. I had heard that if you fast for too long that the muscles in your gums become weak and teeth may fall out. I’m trying to be safe here.

Fall Fast – Day 5

Monday, November 16th, 2009

Had tomato juice and  pear juice for dinner last night. Eleminations were slimy.

Did the salt water flush this morning. I still must have the mixture off because it is not as rapid as I would like.  More black tar stuff this morning.

Went for my standard walks this morning. Energy levels are fine. Weight is holding at 213-214lbs.

Perhaps I will switch to the master cleanse today. Been dreading it honestly.

Fall Fast – Day 4

Sunday, November 15th, 2009

Last night my stomach was troubled. The eleminations looked somehow, really “old”. I know that sounds gross, but we’re doing this for the benefit of mankind.

Had a slight head ache this morning. Drank some cherry juice and flushed it down with organic water.

My weight is maintaining at about 213lbs, which means I had roughly 7lbs of fun in my gut. That’s a lot of fun to have in one’s gut.  I got some fancy schmancy sea salt for the salt cleanse part of the master cleanse and went and ahead and downed 1Qt of sea water (distilled water + 2 tsp sea salt).

Fall Fast – Day 3

Saturday, November 14th, 2009

I did a salt water enema last night. Lots of black tar looking stuff. Sort of looked like the little black fuzzies on the movie Spirited Away.

Hunger is fading into the background. I had a couple friends call me up to discuss their spiritual growth and were asking lots of questions. Interesting.

For dinner I had pear juice! Pear juice is divine! So is tart cherry juice, but even more so is pear juice. I had headaches the last two days, but I feel my mind now sharpening up. Sharp!

Tomorrow I suppose I will switch to the master cleanse fast. I wanted to start out with three days of fruit juices to get my body ramped up. I’ve got 64 Oz of fair trade organic maple syrup ready for this.

I plan to strive for 20 days this time. So we have 17.5 days left to go. It may depend on the weight loss as well. I’d like to lose all my baby fat for once.

213lbs as of the evening. Bizarre eleminations. Did another salt water enema. My stomach is feeling slightly upset.

Fall Fast – Day 2

Friday, November 13th, 2009

Yesterday I weighed in at a solid 220lbs. At my lowest during my last master cleanse I was at about 208lbs. So I’ve gained 12lbs after about 6 months. I really gained 2-3lbs in the last 2 months so it might have something to do with avocado tacos or nachos twice a week.

Today I weighed in at 216lbs. In terms of eliminations I think I had some clay and such that I ingested almost a month ago come out. Perhaps eating dirt was a bad idea.

I’ve been focusing on organic grape juice and coconut juice so far. I’ll probably switch to the master cleanse solution starting tomorrow. I bought my lemons and what not yesterday evening.

I have been trying to focus more consciously on my breath through out the day and trying to feel my ear lobes and toes periodically. Mind is sharp today, but I was tired this morning when I got out of bed.

I started reading the Celestine Prophecy. I’m speed reading through it. Almost done as of last night. Could have summarized the whole book in 5-10 pages, but I guess it needs a wrapper to draw people in.

Turns out I’m being somewhat demoted at work in order to pursue a business opportunity. They simply can’t afford me any longer at my price in this economy. I’m probably going to put my house up for sale and buy me a camper and truck and live out in nature and stuff. I need to find a place to park the thing where there will be water. If my business takes off, it will be fine though because I will be able to keep my interests more mobile.

Fall Fast – Day 1

Thursday, November 12th, 2009

I began another fast today. I had wanted to start this yesterday, but a couple of situations came up preventing me from doing so (Steve).

I haven’t eaten since last night. Last thing to go down was cheese enchilidas.  I had debated starting today because I had recently purchased some fresh “organic” milk from a local farm. I have yet to see what they feed the cow, but it was pretty neato to see actual milk. The fat floated on top of the milk and was slightly yellowsh in tint. Anyway, I put the milk in the fridge and started the morning out with a nice glass of Senna leaf and Green Tea.

I dran organic grape juice from concentrate most the day.

No head ache so far.

At lunch time, one of my bco-workers randomly brought me a package of pomengrante seeds. So beyond seeds, I’ve had nothing to eat today.  Going to shoot for 20 days this time. In preparation, I have bought 64 Oz. of Grade B Organic Maple Syrup.

One of the interesting things is that my eleminations have turned into green powder. This is probably from the hemp protein shake I had almost 2 days ago. Gee whiz. I wonder what else is still stuck in there. Perhaps I will find that dime that I swallowed in my youth.
