"Forced Fasting"...of sorts; and lost my voice
Tuesday, September 28, 2010
Got a cold this past Wednesday. Ate that day, but since then I've barely had a bite of anything, all because I simply don't like to plug myself up with food when I'm sick, plus it seems to always make me get sicker when I do eat. I wanted to get nutrients in to help my cells with this though, so I've been drinking a quart a day of fresh veggie juice--excellent! I have a juicer but I'm just not feeling up to all the prep work & cleanup involved in juicing right now; luckily I found a place within walking distance that makes juices; somewhat limited though not really. I create an order that works for me.
Apple, celery, beet, lemon & ginger--a whole quart--Yum!
So I've been doing that since Thursday. Saturday I went with a friend to an organic place & had a quart of apple, cucumber, cabbage, celery, spinach, tomato, lemon and ginger--yum again! (Odd to add in the tomato but I just thought I'd try it; it worked! Yum. :) )
Despite all that I'm still sick.
I've actually lost my voice & can't even talk. No sounds come out of me beyond an occasional super harsh whisper. It's too difficult anyhow to try and talk. The weight's dropping off though... :) I've been wondering when I'd start fasting again. I don't feel this is an "official" fast, but it's nice anyhow. Wish I'd just get well! I already took off 3 days from work, (will be reflected on 2 different paychecks.) I worked yesterday, 2 days off right now, then 2 day shifts scheduled next. Hopefully i can at least talk by then! After that it's possible I'll have 2 night shifts, then a day shift... will find out tomorrow. Simply can't afford to take more time off from work! The job's very physically demanding. Also stressful. Still okay though. :)
