Tonight, I had my last meal for awhile. I have decided to start this year with a 10 day fast for both spiritual and physical reasons. I will drink water only for the first five days. During the second five days, I will eat oranges and drink honey/lemon water for energy.
I have found that it works best for me to start a fast like this on a Thursday. That way, I will enter the weekend feeling little to no hunger and therefore, there will be less temptation to ‘cheat’. Also, if I am incapacitated by severe headaches and extreme weakness, I can lay around the house and moan like a little baby in the privacy of my own home!
