From the cowardice that dares not face new truths,
From the laziness that is content with half-truths,
From the arrogance that thinks it knows all truths,
Good Lord, deliver me.
- Kenyan Prayer
Quotes, quotes and more quotes. Today I am adding a new element to my blogs. Everyday I will add a new quote that I find inspiring. I have a book that I think all should consider purchasing, "Believing in Myself Daily Meditations for Healing and Building Self Esteem," by Earnie Larsen & Carol Hegarty. I love this book. It is inspiring and yet not preachy or religious. Its a good way to start the day. I will be incorporating a quote a day that I have taken from this book.
Also, I discovered a program called CalorieKing, at
This is such a cool program. You can download a 7 day free trial. I don't suggest you download it while you are fasting, but when you start a low-calorie program off of the fast this program is the best tracker. You can track what you eat. Have daily weigh-ins, track progress and daily calories burned. It even counts housework as exercise, finally. Check it out.
Day 6 Findings - "Courage is contagious. When a brave man takes a stand,
the spines of others are stiffened." - Billy Graham
What a hard day it was. My monthly cycle began today so that really put a wrench in my tire. I was cranky all day and nauseous. My husband refused to eat leftovers and went ahead and bought the most delicious smelling chinese food. It was hard to stay focused with that smell in the house but I did it. My mental clarity is something short of miraculous. I am thinking clearly and analyzing things that would give me brain drain in the past. Even my dreams are more vivid. How exciting! I have set up a weight loss ticker online that charts and tracks my daily weight loss in addition to the excel spreadsheet I created. I did not administer an enema today but I did workout. I did an hour long belly dance session. I love belly dancing it is low impact and it targets the areas on a woman's body that holds on to fat like thighs and love handles and hips. Oooh I still feel the burn. I use Veena and Neena's DVD program for Abs, Arms, Hips and Thighs. Its an easy way to lose weight and feel sexy the whole time. I have promised myself that I would start going to the gym on Day 1 of my juice fast since I will be taking in calories then and I won't be afraid of blackouts. I lost another 3 lbs. today. If I keep it up will be down about 25 lbs. by the end of this water fast. Today was dedicated to my daughter, who teaches me patience and changed my life at such a young age.

and the value of nothing." - Oscar Wilde
Down another 2 lbs. today. This is my PM weight. I did not workout today because I woke up late and I was way too tired to. I did go to my religious meeting and I came home and did some housework other than that I tried to rest as much as possible. I was swimming in my clothes, I lost about 2 dress sizes since I started and everyone actually noticed my loss. I was invited to eat at my mother-in-laws house. So in order to avoid the temptation I went over after everyone finished eating, (she lives upstairs). By the time I showed up every one was finished. She told me I am wasting away, and she can see a significant weight loss. Her step-daughter was there and she started asking questions about fasting, she also expressed her want to try it out. I expected more cynicism but surprisingly, there was none. My husband was so warm and affectionate today it was lovely. Overall this was a good day and I am thankful for it. Today was dedicated to all the times I didn't stick up for myself because of my weight. I am transforming and I will stick up for that beautiful woman against anyone and anything.
Tip: During a fast, bathe two or more times a day, and wash your face often. The skin is the largest area where toxins are eliminated. Bathing helps remove the waste and accelerates the cleansing process. Brushing the skin with a natural bristle brush before bathing increases the circulation by bring more blood and toxins to the skin surface.
