Water Water Water

Tuesday, September 25, 2012

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!

Edit 9/27/12 -

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.

9/27/12 - Day 3

    I fast quite often. It just came natural after I got a grip on the carbs. I make sure I have a good meal of fats and proteins the night before, and the first part of my fast is while I sleep :)

    Fasting has so many benefits. I do some biohacks though, that probably would not work for a spirtual absolute water fast. The biohacks though include things like bulletproof coffee, fermented veggies like kraut, and bone broth, all of which do not hender sone of the health benefits of fasting. It just all depends on the results you are wanting. For me, it's is mostly fat loss.

    Best of luck to you!

    Good luck! It'd be hard for me to give up my morning coffee.
