Another Fast

First, I gotta say, I hate " the new look" of Blogger.Why does everything have to always have a " new look". Clearly, people have too much time on their hands  and that's why they feel compelled  to mess with the old look that worked perfectly fine. Hotmail is forever doing this, a system I use at work as well. Why on earth can't these people leave well enough alone is what I'd like to know.

Anywho, here I am doing a(nother) fast...My last one was back in April, so 2011, and it was your bog-standard 24 hour lemon-honey-water fast.

I'm aiming for 30 hours-maybe 36, this time round. I'm not ready for 48 hours just yet. I'm at hour 25.5 now. This time I'm doing water only. I started with lime ( I have no lemons) honey and water. Then, moved on to water with a pinch of Himalayan salt in it.

Why add salt to water? Pure salt helps to pull toxins out of you, while helping your body to stabilize itself.

Here's a great link I found about the pros of using natural salt vs. the evil cons of using  processed "table salt"

Right now, I'm not  too hungry, but yesterday and last night were killer. So, what did I do? I  watched "Come Dine With Me", naturally!  I stayed up as long as I could, so I'd be really tired and sleep without feeling hungry. Kind of worked.

 Here's another interesting link all about Himalayan salt; how to use it, what's it's benefits are, and such like.

Right now, I'm closing in on 26 hours. I'll see how much longer I can go. I feel kind of lethargic, and it's a task to not focus on food.

Well, we'll see how I go, and more importantly, how I feel when I finish.
 A belated Shana Tova to all, and a pre-emptive Yom Kippur!


  1. Blessings to you and kudos on your fast! Today is Yom Kippur and I read this right before reading your blog: Because Yom Kippur is a fast day, it is appropriate to wish your Jewish friends an "Easy Fast" on Yom Kippur, or in Hebrew "Tzom Kal." The traditional Yom Kippur greeting is "G'mar Hatimah Tovah" or "May You Be Sealed for a Good Year (in the Book of Life)." This reflects the Jewish view of Yom Kippur as the day when God seals our fates (determined by our actions) for the upcoming year in the Books of Life or Death..... So an Easy Fast to you and may you be sealed for a good year!

  2. Thanks a lot! Blessings to you to:)
