On my spiritual path, my next step is to understand, honor, love and adore the element of water.
This means only drinking water for 9 days. No coffee, tea, soda, no water with flavor packets etc. There is also much more to it but the drinking only water seems to be the hardest part. So I am not going to beat myself up over food the next few days but I will complete this 9 day water meditation. I am determined!!!!!
I will update this post to reflect the journey ahead.
9/25/12 - Day 1 * Edit 9/26/12
Yesterday was easy in the morning. I just kept swigging back water all day.
Afternoon, I started to crave like you wouldn't believe. I haven't had cravings like that in a whille. Then in the afternoon I started to get a bad headache and then when I got home I was so exhausted I couldn't do anything. Although I didn't cut out sugar and I didn't focus crazy on food intake, I did try a little and the lack of sugar and caffeine drained me.
9/26/12 - Day 2
I went to bed early last night and I am still tired. I am craving the tea and coffee this morning. I just ate donuts so I feel full but I still want the sugary drink. I can't tell if I am getting sick or if I just feel bad because of the lack of sugary drinks. I am going to take some vitamins. I will continue... 9 days - WATER!

Day 2 was killer!!! I was so completely exhausted. I went home from work, did a few things and passed out around 8:30pm and didn't get up until 7:10am and I couldn't get up this morning. So exhausted. I still feel a headache, I am tired. But I am doing pretty good, I am drinking more water than I ever drank in my life and it is a good way to cleanse and purify but boy do I feel it...
Here is to day 3.
