Hungry Girl: Day 1.

Me, renting out a bike.

Naya & Felix, hanging out.

Felix, doing the 'face of death'

Me, doing the 'Little Tree'

Lion-ess said it and I shall repeat: I am tired of bread!

Today has been very low energy; I've been riddled with allergies, battered by a lack of sleep & irritated at work. Waking up, I was excited yet apprehensive about the first day of fasting. I've been easing myself into this for the past few weeks but eating small portions doesn't compare to eating ONLY dry bread.
I went into the kitchen an hour ago, I was heating up water for tea (no sugar, no honey, no milk, nothing) and I marveled at how yummy the chocolate chip cookies looked (I don't even like cookies) how I wish I could eat some yogurt or even snack on some olives.
Then a thought popped into my head; IF you cheat, nobody will know! Just chew on it, you can spit it out after.
I walked out of the kitchen, unfortunately my little sister chose to eat her hamburger; in the living room, in front of me. She was smiling with malice as I looked at her with envy.
The first few days, I read, are the hardest. I will be hungry, low on energy, irritated..
I feel like my bones are hollow and ready to snap. As if when I get up or bend over, my spine will crack like a tree branch. I had a headache already and my eyes are hurting me. It's a mix of things; lack of sleep, nutrition, rest.
Tomorrow will be a new day.
The good news; I feel proud that I'm sticking with this. My productivity has been high today; although I am dead tired, I listened to Sabrina Gilbert's 'Sticky' CD. I'm reviewing it for Burrowsink.com, so I rotated the 9 tracks a couple times. I started a new story & I love where it's going. So far, it is entitled 'Him'. Stay tuned.
I hope when I sleep, I dream of food; Baby back ribs with potatoes and mountains of butter...

I agree when they say the first few days are the hardest. Once your body gets used to it, you'll be disgusted by some of the terrible foods you ate before.

I learnt one thing when fasting; stay focused and occupied. Do your do but don't overdo.

Take care and hang in there!

You can do it Girl!

Hey Nana, I had a fun time that night even though you tried to pimp me out. Like the pics even the stare of death I think it might become a killer trend. By the way Naya totally fucked up on the fast!

Love ya Ma!
