It's abt 4:30, pretty late in the day, going alright
today's a bit tougher than yesterday, had a treatment with Professor W today and a morning appointment that kept me out of the house till abt 1pm - great acupuncture, the guy is amazing... deep treatment
came home and had a little 30 min cat nap after that, probably a good thing to set it in - might be the last of a set of 3 treatments, figure I'll be a lot better now, was starting to get that way after #2 and not sure I want to spend much more, it is costly but awesome - will see how I feel in a week I guess, he said I was much better - he's done wonders for me
it's getting cold, today was a drizzly cold old day, and the change in temperature makes it a bit tougher fasting - I think the treatment and the temp kinda stimulates my appetite, so just drinking a few more cups of tea and thinking I'll go and give myself a cleansing enema as that always warms up the insides and brightens up my mood - my tongue is pretty white, probably getting a good lot of toxins out by day 3, so it might be a good day for that
maybe a nice hot bath afterwards, see if I can repeat that Yoga - it went well on Day 1, Day 2 I had a friend from out of town here all day sleeping over in my living room so no space to do it - wd be good to do again today though
maybe after that have a jam with my partner - play some piano and guitar and wind down with an early night and a movie or some doco's...
tomorrow have to get up early and go help out till abt 2:30 with a funds raising sausage sizzle... little early into the fast for that to be easy at this stage - will bring a thermos and a water bottle and just stick to it though
I know from experience once I reach day 4 or 5 it will start to get easy... the first few days are always a bit tougher
doing well all in all - have dropped over 6 lbs already, its a start, probably mostly water and what was inside me... heads very clear, I'm more relaxed... a little melancholy perhaps but only slightly... the weather's pretty grey which reflects that feeling - writing a couple songs today and last night, really like where they are going - the music is really good, just working on the words
one is for a very close friend who passed away last week waaaay too young, sick with a bone marrow disease - only 35, like a little brother to me... very loved boy, so sad.. so its good to write something to capture a bit of his beauty in song - sure there will be a lot of friends out there who will appreciate it...
kinda a Tom Waits sort of number in his piano bar mindset...
got that restless energy wrt to eating, a kind of itch to eat or taste something.. had a little hunger, but it tends to arise more from habit and the desire for the comfort of food and flavor... I guess I should meditate and do some yoga/moving meditation when it arises instead of just try to quash it down with teas -- moving helps shift all that
it's good to keep a blog as it helps to focus my mind and intention on what I'm doing... I'm reminding myself now that I should use this grey day to do all the above and to meditate --
well.. n'uff said...
I'm going to go and do just that
till next blog :)
