This fast is now coming to a close. My tongue for the second day now is appearing pink. According to the book I guess I could stop now, however I want to complete at least 10 days.
One interesting observation that I’ve discovered is my reflexes have seemed to have improved. Like a bull in a china shop, I tend to knock things over regularly. Whether it’s the shampoo in the shower or a book off a desk, somehow I always manage to hit some object in the process of moving and knock it over. This results in me trying to catch the object on its way to the ground, most of the time missing it. Well since this fast I am able to consistantly catch whatever is falling. My hand always ends up in the exact spot it needs to be in order to catch it; with suprising grace as well. I have no idea if this is related to the fast or had my reflexes finally caught up with my clumsiness. Funny.
I don’t have much to report other than I feel great. I’m not excessively hungry nor do I crave any particular food at the moment. If I were to quit right now I could definitely say that this fast has been a success.
