Day 1 a breeze.

There were many motivations for me to fast. Number one, I told the guy I like that I was going to experiment with fasting for 10 days to see whether it would get rid of allergies, since he said he didn't believe that fasting would get rid of them. I am doing it because I already said I would to him and also because I want to prove to him that it can happen. If this fails, I would think of the mantra "relax, be serene/tranquil, deep breathing." Especially when I think of being tranquil, I don't want to eat.
The allergies were hard to bear, especially the back roof of my mouth itching. I ate Wednesday night at 8 P.M., because of this mouth itching. But now I can't eat to alleviate the itching. I have to tough through it. Guess I should be grateful that I'm sneezing and blowing my nose instead of my mouth itching. Last night the occurrence of blowing my nose seemed less, and this morning I'm still blowing my nose and sneezing, but it wasn't as crazy as it used to be. The number of times this happens has decreased by at least 19%.
So what I would like to see happen is for my mouth to stop itching and for my sneezing and blowing nose to stop.
It's not just end of day 1 right now, it is actually the middle of Day 2. I'm walking a bit slow to places outside, but I'm not impatient or scared of this. Sometimes when I'm fast, I'm afraid of walking slow and being weak. I have the courage this time to not be afraid. Yay!
Along with the fasting, I'm meditating Qigong more frequently just so that it helps with the fasting and the allergies. Yesterday, I meditated 3 times. Each time 30 minutes.
So far not any symptoms popped up yet. What I expect is that at the end of Day 3, my knees will hurt a lot, because it happened two or three times before when I fasted. Around Day 6-9, I will probably have heart burn. I will walk even slower up stairs and to places. Today, I'm thirstier more frequently. I brought to school with me my 32-oz water bottle filled with purified fluoride-free water. I already drank 4 oz, and at home I drank 20 oz earlier this morning. I might also dream about food some nights.
My mood has improved drastically. My contentment level increased 25%. But it's not excited happy, just calm happy. It's serenity. It's inner peace. It's ease and comfort.
One of the things that I'm extremely focused on these days is reading my Chemistry II textbook. I wasn't able to read it earlier yesterday, but then I turned on third-eye opening music and was able to read some, but the music got boring, so I went to Schubert's classical studying music. It worked wonders. Just have to be creative with ways to get better. Well, now I'm taking a break because my third-eye got clouded again, which is why I thought of this blog, but It think this break will help me recover. I'm looking at my textbook and feeling like I can do it.
Yesterday I had Speech class in the morning and Chemistry II at noon. Then I went to my psychologist, Betsy. She and I made a plan to avoid lying on my bed until bedtime. I feel bad a lot of times because I lie on my bed doing nothing. I came home to meditate Qigong, then read about Qigong a little to my grandma, but I stopped for fear she was falling asleep. Then I actually went and played piano for the first time in many months. I played about 10-15 minutes. Then I went to my room and just sat there in fetal position, staring in to space for about 40 minutes. I wanted to stand and read a book or email blogs or watch videos, but couldn't get myself to do it. I got myself to call SAM and was given valuable advice. It's the last thing I would think of doing, and it's doing something that relaxes me and is fun. I ended up spending time with mom because being with people relaxes me. Then I stood by my brother who was playing computer games in the goldfish room until I found another Qigong book and read a section. I realized that reading Qigong was relaxing for me also, along with spending time with people. Then I went and meditated Qigong again, and then it was time to sleep.
My sleep was undisturbed. I usually get up once in the middle of the night, but last night it was straight through. This morning I was able to get up early to meditate Qigong again. Usually I can't get up early to meditate. My improved sleep might be from fasting.
My stomach feels kind of empty right now. It's a good feeling. I'm not bothered by it.
I think the classical music I'm listening to right now is low on sound quality, which might be the reason I couldn't concentrate on reading.
Well, back to reading and fasting for me. Good day.
