Today has been very hard, i have been battling myself from eating, everywhere i turn i want to just quit the idea of a fast. And this is day one, if this is the way it is what will happen in day two and three, or twenty...i donít know whether i should just quit before iíve even really began. I have to focus more on the end i suppose, iím just holding on by the grace of God, right now, my head is heavy, my eyes are dry i feel really down, iím hoping tomorrow will be better.

End of prefast day - 4 days and counting
Today hasnít been the best day. Iíve lain in bed sleeping and eating all day. I havenít made the best choices, but have kept in mind that my water fast starts on wednesday so i have to prepare for it - i think my mind is there but my body not yet, or maybe the other way round. I havenít stuck to salads and just eaten what is available, beef, beans, corn...weekends are hard for me so i kind of expected this but not this bad. Iíll try and be more controlled tomorrow.
