12 Day Fast – Day 5 – I’m dying over here!

Posted by

Oh boy, I am not feeling this.  The challenge is on!  This is the longest I have ever been without actually eating food.  I am starting to feel some kinda way.

Day 5 – Thursday Aug 25

Woke up feeling really weak but not hungry. Maybe I should drink the shake in the morning. Or maybe my body may have just used the nutrients because we haven’t had food and was tired after processing it.  I am still lying in the bed while I’m writing this but now I really need to get up.  I don’t even want to get up, I’m so tired but lets get on with the day.

After getting dressed, Khadijah had already juiced the following ingredients:

  • Kale
  • Apples
  • Key Limes
  • SeaMoss (which we bought yesterday)

And a couple of other things which I don’t know because I wasn’t in the kitchen when she fixed it. But this was the first time I have ever tasted sea moss. People have said it tastes like sea water or really salty. But I didn’t taste that. It must be because it was mixed with a lot of other strong fruit and veggie flavors.

One of the crazy things about today is my nose has been running and it has been clear mucus coming out when I blow it.  It has been said that mucus is the cause of every other disease, so I am glad it is coming out.  I do feel noticeably weaker but I don’t think it equates to the strength that I have, just feeling.

Before going to bed, Khadijah and I, did some band exercises again tonight after drinking a an electric shake smoothie.  It was really good, but at this point anything other than water tastes remarkably good.

I really hope this series of blog post helps someone understand some of the things you will go through on a 12 Day Fast.  I know some people will experience things either I forgot to document or things that are specific to them based on the state of their current bodily health. Don’t be nervous about fasting, this is a way to reset your body and get on a path to a more healthy lifestyle.

I’m taking myself to bed now.  I will see you all in the comments below.
